Kaffir Lime is a local Thai restaurant serving authentic down-home dishes in a laid-back setting, surprisingly tucked away in upscale Omotesando. The restaurant offers a great alternative from Japanese fare and is especially busy in the evenings. Portions are substantial so it's best to share with friends. The cozy second-floor restaurant opens out into a sunny terrace that's ideal once the sun sets. Pair Singha beer with cold spring rolls, crisp prawn crackers, hearty bowls of coconut-infused green curry, and fried fish in spicy sauce. If you like your food to pack a punch, this little spot can satisfy those spicy food cravings, though there are plenty of milder options on hand too.

Food meets art in Celadon, a popular Thai restaurant. The restaurant is endorsed by the Thai government and endeavors to replicate genuine Thai cuisine. Try their phanaeng (red curry), which is sweet and delicately flavored. It's hard to pass up their pad thai, a perfect combination of fresh vegetables, pliant rice noodles and the right amount of egg and peanut oil. Celadon also has 'Celadon Style' which gives diners and shoppers the opportunity to purchase the beautiful Celadon-style pottery that their food is served on.
