Description: A local landmark on The Boulevard, the Blue Elephant Thai restaurant...
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. A popular spot for couples, who cosy up under the thatched pergolas, the Blue Elephant is renowned for its refined cuisine, which also includes a wide range of vegetarian dishes, an extensive wine list and a Sunday brunch with children's entertainment. Ideal for relaxing with a classic cocktail, the opulent Blue Bar is highlighted by a replica of the Suphannahong - the Royal Barge of Thailand.

Good overall but really spicy

Good menu selection of Thai food, but everything we had was really spicy. Some enjoyed it and others had to stop before they were done eating even though it tasted great.

Beautiful and well decorated space. Vegetable spring rolls were fantastic but chicken with cajun nuts was far away from a Thai taste signature. Dish presentation was average. If you are around may be a good option but does not deserve to drive there for a meal.

We had visited the restaurant when it was in Fulham, some years ago, and the decor there with indoor water features and bridges was fabulous. They haven't recreated that at the new venue, but it's still well presented in an oldie worldly Thai style. The food though was lacking the quality you'd expect considering the premium prices. One dish was... More

I went there 2nd time as I actually liked it in a previous visit. Place has a great setting with stylish furniture, personnel quite helpful and handy. Selection from the menu is not very broad but it's boldly promising delicious tasting experience from either ancient traditional recipes or modern interpretation. I had starter which was sort of meatball with crab... More

We love Thai food. As we haven't been to the Blue Elephant since they were based in Fulham Broadway a few years ago, we were looking forward to eating at Imperial Wharf. The service was good, the ambience was nice but unfortunately the food was not great. Our ribs (as pictured on the website banner) were served not as pictured... More

The food lacked flavour We had prawns and red rice - cold tasteless prawns + rice was very dry and flavourless too My partner had crocodile cigars - tasted like overly microwaved chicken Service was poor - most waiting staff was roaming around Caucasian 40+ clientele
