First of all, I had passed this cafe twice and never awared its existence. After encountered a man who hanged around the area (actually he is one of the staff of this cafe), with his help I discovered the Hidden Delight - Cello Thai Cafe.
Cello, is a tiny restaurant with a BIG taste. It is literally hidden, on the corner next to the Tongfoon restaurant and the High Society.

The following comment by Jeeem (another VT member who recommended Cello):

Cello might be tiny, but the quality they dish out is out of this world!

Nice, pleasant atmosphere with featured artwork, plants, comfortable chairs, air-con, clean bathrooms, etc...tiny, address book-size menus that prove to be extremely diverse, offering up Neo-Thai dishes as well as a few Western delights to calm the feverish palate.

Just basically a really nice feel to this place, which, if you ask me, is a better choice than the Vietnamese restaurant next door.

Favorite Dish: Since the crusine offer by Cello Thai Cafe is out of this world, my advice is give it a try - it worth!

Quoted by Jeeem:

Golden fried appetizer baskets
Roast Duck in Green curry
BBQ Duck in Sweet and Sour Sauce
Pork Ribs in Marmalade Sauce

*Please excuse the fact that these were NOT the EXACT descriptions on the menu...only what I could remember hours later!


Absolutely delicious.

You gotta try this place. Their Thai food is not the conventional Thai food that you get in every other Thai restaurant throughout Hat Yai...it's a step different...in the GOOD FOOD direction!

My rating?

EXCELLENT...a hidden delight.
