To be sure, J's is not the most romantic locale in the city. Okay, it may be the least. But that's not why you should visit J's. This is Denver - not DC, San Francisco, or Chiang Mai - so we just don't have consistently great Thai food, but it comes as close as possible to the real thing in this town. The staff is incredibly friendly, the portions are reasonable (read: not disgustingly huge) and the food is fabulous. As with most Thai restaurants, they'll tone it down unless you ask for the chiles. J's is a great spot to dine with a focus on the food, but take your longtime sweetie rather than a first date, unless that date was a Peace Corps volunteer. J's never disappoints!
Pros: Great food, very unpretentious
Cons: Spartan atmosphere
