After two weeks of quite “moderate” food in Khao Lak I enjoyed the “Blue Elephant” so much that I went there two nights in a row. It is beautifully located in an old mansion (although the management could enhance the premises a bit by planting some more trees or other greenery). The interior is nicely decorated and creates a sophisticated... More

To be honest it's no different from any other Blue Elephant Restaurant you might visit. It's sort of the Thai equivalent of Hard Rock Cafe. Does what it says on the tin but culinary wise pretty average at best. Had the Blue Elephant sharing platter to start which was no better than your local Thai restaurant. Main courses were Massaman... More

We had a party of 8, but didn't have to wait at 7:00pm on a Tuesday. Very beautiful architecture, and lots of character. The wait staff was very attentive, and the food from everyone's account was excellent.

I went there with my mom for lunch. It is in an ancient building with a beautiful garden. The tasting menu is so delicious that we nearly finished all of them. Its much better than Nahm,which was a Micheline star for Thai food. After we finished lunch we bought two of the signature blue elephant tea pots. Its a bargain... More

I am not quite sure how to grade this restaurant because it really depends on what you're looking for as a thai restaurant. If you know thai cuisine well you wouldn't come to Blue Elephant, if you're looking to have a different experience than the rest of Phuket then I would say it's a great experience overall. It's not the... More

This restaurant might be on the high end for some backpackers, but is great place to visit and hang out for an evening. Also has the Best Cooking School in Phuket. The owners are super friendly and welcoming. They had a large bouncy castle in the front yard for the kids to play on the night we were there. Even... More
