I go there about three times a week.

This place is walking distance from my house, so being a lazy vegan; this is my go-to place. The food here beats any other Thai restaurant I've been; even the meat-friendly ones.
One of the best things about Jhanjay is that it doesn't try to substitute meat dishes (although the menu says that option is available). Jhanjay makes vegetables well. Something that is sadly lacking in a lot of vegetarian restaurants. It's all about the sauce.
I would recommend the green curry if that's your thing. Best I've had. The rest are great too, except the pineapple curry is a little sweet.
My staples are the Broccoli Lovers, Spicy Eggplant, Rama Garden, Spicy Noodles, and my favorite is the Ginger Delight.
I did not care for their Pad Thai, Sweet & Sour, or any of the soups I've tried so far.
For apps I've had the Tofu Satay, Corn Fritters, and Fresh Spring Rolls; all of which were good. And the papaya salad is excellent. Try it particularly if you've never heard of it and it sounds horrible to you.
The staff is always attentive and friendly. The prices are very reasonable, around $9 a dish. Oh yeah, they are open until 10 which is a plus!
Good Food, Nice Atmosphere, Close to my house ;)
