A great dining experience with a wonderful atmosphere. I loved the governor's mansion because of its architecture and design. It was very rustic and charming. The staff are very attentive and well informed about their menu and can explain in detail what the dishes are made or consist of. So far, Blue Elephant served the best royal and authentic Thai...

A great dining experience in Phuket Town. An exceptional old style building with a great atmosphere. Very attentive service and a compelling menu. The Pomelo Salad and Crab Cake is an essential starter.

I had a dinner at this restaurant as part of my business trip in phuket. From the outside, this is an old villa that has been renovated to become a stunning Thai restaurant. I love the staff there because they are one of the most friendliest staff I have seen in recent years. My recommended dishes would be Tom Yum... More

This place was amazing. We ate dinner here in march. We got the set menu which was a wonderful 5 course meal way too much food for two people but we'll worth it.

Lovely Thai food and lovely environment. A little bit expensive for Thailand, but food quality, taste, ingredients were excellent and representative of the higher price.

Ambience was beautiful. Building interior and outside were both charming, retaining cultural and historical flavour. Very quaint. Table setting amazing as well. Food was generally excellent. Fish cake salad, mamasan curry, morning glory, stewed bananas in coconut, mango rice. The French red paired well with the thai cuisine too. But we made the mistake of ordering the whole steamed snapper.... More
