THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Qi Thai Grill Restaurant Review

: Chefs Pichet Ong and Sripraphai Tipmanee combine the success of Hell’s Kitchen’s Qi Bangkok and Sunnyside’s Sripraphai to create the dynamic Qi Thai Grill in Williamsburg. Set in a cavernous, dramatic space with recessed dining nooks and a gigantic Ganesha, the restaurant offers a large and varied menu of Thai delights, given the Ong savory-and-sweet touch as well as Sripraphai’s street food flair. Dishes range from tame to very spicy, moving quietly from Ong’s signature Qi pad thai made with seafood and wrapped in egg white crêpe to the chicken wings with barbecue sriracha sauce and makrut lime. Creativity rules with spare ribs glazed with an addictive Ovaltine sauce, or a combo of pork and pork belly with cinnamon. Dishes more reminiscent of those found in Bangkok include pork satay and soft shell crab with red onions and chili. The signature house cocktail blends liquors, fruit juices and Thai iced tea --- it’s good enough to inspire a second round. For dessert, don’t miss the pumpkin crème brûlée.
