The only Thai restaurant in Brooklyn's Chinatown doesn't rise to Sripraphai levels of greatness, but it is certainly a worthy addition to an already delicious neighborhood. Som tum (green papaya salad), strewn with baby dried shrimp and doused in fish sauce-lime-chile dressing, is refreshingly zesty and properly, assertively hot. We gobbled up the grilled pork dunked in a dark soy-chile dipping sauce. But crispy pork with basil and chiles should be reserved for pig-fanatics only. The dish is basically a pile of deep-fried pork belly. The crispy crust often yielded to a bite of pork fat, without any meat-good for a couple bites, but overwhelmingly funky after that. Share it with a crowd. Still, MaiThai gets our thumbs up for deploying vivid sweet-sour-salty flavors, exuberantly and authentically spiced.
