Born Thai opened in 2009 on restaurant-saturated Flatbush Avenue, with the intention of appealing to the artsy young things of Park Slope and Prospect Heights. Its wood-paneled walls, splashed with gold-painted designs, speak to that demographic, as do menus unexpectedly encased in DVD boxes. The contents of the menu are less surprising: standard Thai fare at wallet-happy prices. Pad Thai is gooey and greasy, the Thai iced tea is sticky-sweet. Spice-seeking diners will find their nirvana in the fiery drunken noodles, and stir-fry dishes don't disappoint either, packing garlic-filled punches. The to-go orders piling up on the counter offer an explanation for the exceptionally slow dine-in service. Despite the cozy ambience, takeout may be the right move here.Recommended Dishes
