Celadon Royalty Thai
540 University Avenue, Hillcrest

The chef cooked for the Queen and Princess of Thailand, and she'll cook for you, too. One menu page lists all the specialties, such as "Choo Chee Duck" in a terrific red coconut-curry sauce, and a "Pineapple Fried Rice" so elaborate, it looks like it came from the palace jewel box. Even "regular" dishes like seafood-laden "Soup Talay" and stuffed chicken wings are prepared with special care. And at the end of the meal, the queen's banquet comes at a price that "workers" can afford.
