This is a beautiful restaurant in a stunning location. The decor is tasteful and the staff are attentive. We arrived early and sat and had drinks in the modern bar area beforehand. Drinks were actually more expensive then our 5* hotel which was a bit of a shock. We were seated quickly and the dining area is special and tastefully... More

Loved this place! Great vegetarian food, great service, sweet staff, beautiful building. Got green curry, very spicy so be careful. Pad Thai a bit boring but good.

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.

Blue Elephant is the jewel amongst the crown in old Phuket. On our last night in Thailand, after eating some great street-food in Patong Beach, we went high end and boy the Blue Elephant did not disappoint. Everything is memorable, from the little black dog that greets you upon your arrival, to the empty bird cages hanging in the trees... More

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
