“"Updated Thai"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

My husband found this restaurant on a long walk to Hillcrest and his knowledge came in handy when our reservation fell through at Cucina Urbana. We were not disappointed. We never made it past the appetizers, but left very satisfied.

Favorite Dish: The Kratong Tong: Delicate “golden cups” filled with chicken, potato, sweet peas and carrots. Totally delicious small bites that you assembled yourself. The Tom Yum Soup and Gyoza were also well done.

The current Celadon is the latest version of a long-time Hillcrest favorite. The website has a certain hip grunge look to it, but don't be fooled. This is a very atmospheric and elegant spot, The only oddity to me was that Celadon is the name of a color and a ceramic glaze, but the main color inside was definitely purple/fuschia.

“I'm Thai and I give this place a thumbs up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Their flavors are on par with what Thai food should taste like especially with the Northeastern region plates.

Decor - downstairs bar area OK, upstairs is very nice, immaculate, and WHITE everywhere. Looks very nice and elegant.

Service - very good! very attentive!

“Exquiste Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

I was very impress with this restaurant. The intimacy of this restaurant is excellent. There is a piano and a sofa giving the feeling like you were at your home. I had the roti as an appetizer and the sauce is superb. For the main course I had the Grilled Garlic Pepper Fish, that was also superb. The wait staff was excellent. You must try this Thai restaurant. Bon Apetit.
