a friendly restaurant, but slow in service. I have to say though they have the best Thai food in town. I can't go anywhere else after having their Thai food. Pros: Friendly, g...


Food was too sweet and not spicy enough. I expected authentic Thai like I used to eat in Thailand, but they don't serve that kind of food. Also the woman there asked my name again...

Fresh Thai food, atmophere pleasant and comfortable 10/31/2006

Jamjuree has a wonderful peanut sauce, which I was "addicted to" for several years. My tastes have changed somewhat and I moved and so I haven't been in about a year. I went to Jamjuree about one-four times a month for two years. have found the service consistently pleasant and attentive. The atmosphere warm, comfortable and leisurely with a touch of elegance. The food was wonderful. The noodle dishes had a sort of "soft noodle" style (not as crisp or saucy as some places) which it's sort of it's own taste. This was on-again off-again one of my local haunts. The food was very consistent, with only one mishap. One night my Phad Thai tasted TOTALLY different than usual, either they had a substitute chef or were experimenting with recipe. It tasted like something was missing and it made my mouth feel chalky. When I told the waiter he was very pleasant and my food was remade. It was much much better but still not level of taste as usual. On the other 30+ occasions I've been there the food has been delicious. The food is somewhat health conscious with good vegetarian options which don't feel like something is missing. The dishes I've enjoyed have tasted very fresh and the vegetables are perfectly cooked. Price is $1 or $2 above many Thai places, but still very reasonable (approx $8-$11). If you go with a small group, the atmosphere is worth it. They also have a full bar. more

Fresh, friendly Thai place 5/18/2006

In addition to vibrant food, Jamjuree has warm, hospitable servers and a pleasing interior which encourages lingering conversation. The level of light always seems just right: you can see your menu, but the candlelit tables make you want to settle in and stay awhile. My favorite dishes include the Larb Gai (spicy green salad) with squid, because I've had inedible versions of this at other Thai restaurants and Jamjuree's is addictively delicious. And they have a bathing Rama (peanut sauce and spinach on noodles) which is also deeply satisfying. I've never had a dish here that seems routinely slapped together, and yet their service is prompt and their prices very good. They are also very gracious about preparing to-go orders, and they have a steady stream of neighborhood folk who come in and order dinner to bring home. more

Fresh fresh food 5/10/2006

I love the food at Jamjuree on 15th Ave on Capitol Hill. The jasmine tea is so fresh and all the food tastes fresh--more so than at the other Thai restaurants I frequent. I like the arrangement of the tables and rooms so it doesn't get too noisy to have a conversation like in many other places. I especially liked when this past year or so they started offering brown rice and it was that red kind that is so tasty-kind of nutty. I have taken practically all my out of town guests there repeatedly! more

My favorite Thai food 3/7/2006

Jamjuree offers well-presented Thai food that is flavorful and fresh without being too salty. Compared with other local Thai, the dishes here have a nice meat-to-vegetables ratio. My favorites at Jamjuree are just about everything; I've yet to try something I didn't like. I've even been surprised by the fried rice, which is a dish I usually don't order elsewhere and is hard for me to really like after having my mom's. If I could change the menu, though, I'd add fresh rolls; the only spring rolls they offer are the fried kind. Unlike some of Seattle's many Thai restaurants, Jamjuree has a nice ambience. Nothing over-the-top, just enough sophistication to ensure its above-average position. There is a separate room that is frequently used to house larger parties, and there is a slightly elevated gazebo-like area that for whatever reason makes me feel special when I get to sit there. Almost all of the times I've been here, the restaurant has been pretty quiet noise-wise--even when it's fairly full. This may be a byproduct of the restaurant's subtlety; despite being on 15th the restaurant's subdued decor and signage mean some have a hard time remembering where it is (next to the Hopvine). Street parking is your only option on this busy thoroughfare, so you may end up parked on one of the residential side streets. I recently had a party at Jamjuree, and the staff was so helpful. They remembered my specific requests (asking only that I call to confirm the day before), kept my cakes for me (and managed to switch things around when I forgot to mention these were ice cream cakes), lit the candles and provided plates and utensils--all without an extra service fee. The waitstaff were friendly and worked hard to meet the needs of 20+ people and a baby. Needless to say, I left more enamored with Jamjuree than ever. more

Great Thai 12/7/2005

Jamjuree Thai is the best that I've tasted in Seattle. The ingredients are all very fresh and every dish that I have tasted has been great -- even the waitress admitted that she loves the food there. My favorite dishes are Tom Kha Soup (good flavor and spice but it has cabbage), Basil Chicken (good flavor-spice balance and tender chicken), Oyster Beef (lots of veggies and tender beef), and Thai Red Curry (great flavor, good proportions of veggies to meat and hurray! no eggplant). The portion size is just right, the service is very friendly and the atmosphere is good. The layout is a bit odd but the food is so good you won't notice. more

My Favorite 10/20/2005

We just got Jamjuree take out last night (pas Thai, Pad See Ew, Basil Beef and Panang curry). I've been going for about 5 years and I don't think it gets much better than Jamjuree. more

Phad Thai to Die For 8/17/2005

I've been going to Jamjuree since I first moved here nearly 10 years ago. They have hands down the best Phad Thai I've had in Seattle, although that's not to diminish any of their other dishes - every single one I've tried has been fantastic. Their lunch specials are great - and their service staff is really welcoming and efficient. Finally, I appreciate that they offer brown rice and they have always been glad to make changes to accomodate my dietary needs. more

delicious curries 8/11/2005

I've been to Jamjuree twice now, and it's certainly my favorite thai food in capitol hill. the menu isn't huge, but the food is delicious. they have all the classics as well as some other delicious dishes, like lamb. They serve both white and brown rice, as well as sweet sticky rice for dessert. The service is always quick, and the decor is beautiful. My only complaint is that their 4 star spice isn't very hot. more

Tops in a Thai-rich Town 7/22/2004

Sorry for the alliteration, but this little storefront on Capitol Hill's 15th Ave East is my vote for the best straight-up Thai in Seattle. Definitely not flashy, but a pleasant interior space, nice folks, and the best-executed Thai standards around. I'm especially fond of the red curry, but the signature dish is the pahd thai - not the gloppy, ketchupy mess you get at most places in town, but a delicately flavored, well-balanced dish with an elegant presentation (instead of scambling in the egg, it's finished like an omelet, with a delicately browned egg 'wrapper'). Don't expect breakout innovation (see my review of Mandalay Cafe on that subject), just well-executed Thai standards. Go! more
