Jackson Heights does not lack for good Thai food. The cultish SriPraPhai, the zesty Zabb, and the popular Arunee are all within one #7 subway stop of Shallot. This pretty storefront competes by virtue of its seriously cheap tabs and its tranquil ambience: Pillow-laden banquettes and seashell-disk chandeliers that tinkle musically. Nevertheless, Shallot’s familiar Thai recipes come across as tame. While ingredients are impeccably fresh and presentations attractive, a one-size-fits-all approach seems to hold sway in the kitchen. Save for a lime-brightened spicy-basil seafood soup, which arrives as billed, dishes emerge timidly seasoned even if you beg for “super hot, very spicy Bangkok–style.” Diners who like their Thai chow as mild as Cantonese fare will be happy with Shallot’s output. But those who prefer their papaya salad to pucker and their tofu curry to tingle will have to doctor their dishes with a condiment rack of powdered chili and pickled jalapeños.
