A local landmark on The Boulevard, the Blue Elephant Thai restaurant brings an authentic Royal Thai dining experience to bustling West London. Considered one of the finest Thai restaurants in London, the Blue Elephant serves delicious traditional dishes prepared with ingredients flown in from Thailand on a weekly basis, served up amidst tropical foliage and lush water gardens. Your meal will be presented to you by the friendly, attentive staff in national Thai costume, who will also occasionally entertain diners with traditional Thai dancing displays.

Great service and the food was lovely if on the expensive side. We had 2 starters, 2 mains and 1 bottle of wine, £140! I had the lamb shank yellow curry which was delicious and husband had the crab curry, also fantastic. They're hoping to move to central London next year, can't wait to see the new... read more

Super riverside setting in Chelsea and extremely easy parking underneath in massive carpark make this restaurant an easy choice. The Sunday buffet offers an excellent selection of beautifully cooked Thai food. Easy to overdo it on the starters but beware you'll fill up before the equally delicious mains. Staff are so nice and nothing is too much trouble. Been coming... More

We've been here several times with friends but most recently with family. The atmosphere is one of the highlights of this venue as the environment really compliments the tasty dishes that are served here. Look forward to my next visit.

I have eaten a number of times at The Blue Elephant when it was in its previous location in Fulham and it was always a great experience. Now they have moved to the riverfront location just net to Chelsea Harbour and have a totally new look and feel. The old restaurant had a number of water features within it, this... More

I dunno what the bad reviews are about.... This place is in a beautiful area by Chelsea Harbour, the restaurant is large and wonderfully decorated! The staff were aware of our requirements (from the booking info) and gave us a table taking these into consideration. They allowed us to take our time and order at a leisurely pace. They offered...

I've not been to Blue Elephant while - quite a few years ago I had decent dinners there. So when my brother booked Blue Elephant for a mothers day lunch buffet, I thought it would be decent. Despite that my impressions of buffets, in the UK at least, being rubbish, I was actually looking forward to this. Unfortunately, my rule... More

As a family we used the old Blue Elephant at Fulham Road to celebrate special occasions. Sunday branch was a special treat for whole the family, we went there since the kids were at face painting age and celebrated birthdays anniversaries all the way through trough to the kids university graduations.
