This restaurant was a delight. The setting is a colonial Governors mansion which is quite stunning in its own right. Our lunch was beautifully cooked and presented Thai cuisine. The service was attentive without hovering. All this does not come cheap, especially if you like a wine with your meal. But it was worth a splurge.

This restaurant has exceptional food and service, but more than anything, dining there is an experience not to be missed. Be sure to order the Crab Souffle and the coconut rice.

Tried this and drove all the way from kata beach cos of the reviews. Wait staff spoke poor english. As there were only a few tables occupied. Staff kept hovering ard trying to be helpful but we found it was quite discomforting. Prices are steep. We might have done better going to mom's tri or boathouse which was much nearer... More

My family and I have been going to the Blue Elephant for years and my Mom considers it one of her favorite restaurants in Phuket. The interior and exterior is stunning and perhaps one of the nicest manors in Phuket Town. I especially love the Blue Bar inside; it's a perfect place for a drink! As far as the menu... More

Three of us found ourselves by accident at the Blue Elephant during lunch. We didn't want a full set menu, having had a large breakfast, but we were told to come back after 2.30pm for a la carte. We returned and were told "no a la carte." Instead we negotiated a single set menu shared between the 3 of us.... More

We visited the Blue a Elephant Restaurant Phuket located in the beautiful Governor Mansion in the Muang District for dinner on our last night in Phuket. This was a 25 minute taxi ride from where we were staying but was worth the trip. The setting is just beautiful, the old house gorgeous and period (excluding the neon blue bar at... More

I'm Thai so Thai food is something that i'm familiar of. Most of thai food in the restaurant has been prepared to meet taste bud of eater. However, I rarely view thai food as an art but Blue elephant proved to me that it can be. The food is carefully cooked and crafted. The service is on point. The restaurant... More
