Sun-faded photographs of the royal family and Buddhist monks cover the walls of this lived-in, roomy restaurant. Since those relics look as though they haven’t been touched in years, My Thai feels trapped in time, stuck in an era predating Queens as a dining destination. And instead of the obscure regional dishes favored by neighboring ethnic eateries catering to palette pilgrims, the all-English menu here basically bunts tried-and-true standards like sweet pad drunken noodles and basil shrimp with jalapeño. A few dishes show flashes of inspiration, like the chili flake and roasted rice-showered pork lahb with wilted-mint leaves, but for the most part, the food is like the cook-by-numbers that you’ve come to expect from Manhattan Thai. Not Queens!Recommended Dishes
Pad basil sauce with shrimp, $10.95; pork lahb, $7.95.
