The Celadon at The Sukhothai Hotel Bangkok is an award-winning restaurant that strikes the perfect balance between a refined, fine-dining atmosphere alongside delicious and rather artistically presented classic Thai cuisine. Their generously sized set dinner menus start from 1,500 baht per head – quite reasonable considering the luxurious setting within a Thai pavilion set around a lotus pond, as well as the quality and freshness of each dish coming out of the kitchen. The Celadon has consistently won over diners - and food critics - from around the world, welcoming a mix of both hotel guests and visitors from outside.

Although part of the stunning Sukhothai Hotel Bangkok, The Celadon restaurant sits in two separated Thai-style pavilions (complete with those iconic red arched roofs), together with its own herb garden at the back and a delightful lotus pond around its perimeter. Inside, the setting is far more of a contemporary affair: plush chairs, tiled floors and modern mood lighting all point to five-star fine-dining rather than traditional Thai. One stand out feature of the interior are the floor-to-ceiling windows; grab a table at the edge (arrive at opening time or book ahead) for one of these romantic spots next to the lotus pond outside.
The Celadon Restaurant has both al la carte and set menus; we tried their ‘Krapow’ and ‘Horapa’ sets (1,500 and 1,700 respectfully) and weren’t disappointed. The nine dishes (including starters, multiple mains, and desserts) both offer a real journey across the broad spectrum of flavours that Thai cuisine encompasses. Standouts include the tom kha gai (mild coconut cream chicken soup), which is presented in a coconut, while their red curry comes with succulent duck meat – a pleasant change from the usual chicken or pork this tried-and-tested curry recipe usually contains.
Thai classics on their set menus such as their tom yam koong (spicy soup with shrimp), namtok moo (spicy pork salad), stir-fried beef with basil and mango with sticky rice for dessert won’t pull out any surprises for the Thai-food connoisseurs out there; however, these kinds of dishes are perfect for anyone relatively new to authentic Thai food wanting to better understand why this is one of the most adored cuisines across the world.
The a la carte menu at Celadon Restaurant does offer more in the way of inventive and unusual dishes, including their signature pomelo salad (sweet grapefruit infused with herbs and served with shrimps) as well as their Thai gung sod (fried noodles in tamarind sauce with shrimps). Diners are free to mix and match set menus with selections from the a la carte menu, although be warned: we couldn’t finish our set menus alone!
Wine in Thailand is always expensive, so it’s no surprise that the price of a bottle here can match the total for the food. That said, there’s a small but impressive range of reds, whites and dessert wines from France, Italy and Australia (starting at 1,500 baht a bottle or 250 baht a glass). The cocktail list offers particularly pleasing creations in line with the classic Thai menu; the signature lychee vodka martini is a perfect blend between the sweetness of the fresh lychee fruit and the kick from all that booze.
The Celadon Restaurant Bangkok can be found on the right hand side as you enter the grounds of The Sukhothai Hotel Bangkok on Sathorn Road, a few minutes’ walk from either Surasak BTS Skytrain Station or Lumpini MRT Station. Bookings at The Celadon Restaurant are advisable three days in advance, particularly if you’re coming for dinner on the weekend.
