Although mediocre Thai places breed like bunnies in this neighborhood, Mee Thai isn't one of them -- the kitchen takes uncommon care with the food, and if you ask for "Thai spicy," you'll receive Thai spicy. The papaya salad is all refreshing crunch and chile burn, sauced with copious amounts of funky fish sauce and lime juice. Pad-kee-mao (drunken noodle) is especially good -- a delicious tangle of chewy broad noodles, egg, chile paste and basil. Also worth ordering: an aromatic and spicy veggie-heavy jungle curry. It doesn't compete with the fabulous Queens Thai spots, but as a neighborhood standby, it succeeds.
