Nice food, atmosphere is nice as well, but the bill was very very large for not such a great meal. There are lots of asian authentic places in town, Blue Elephant is relying on its reputation but needs to change and vamp it up a bit to see me again....

It's expensive but also delicious. It was a wonderful experience, even though I don't really know the names of the dishes I had! Very spicy and very satisfying food. The decor and location are also a plus!

Went for a family meal at Imperial Wharf, the location and building is very impressive reminding me of Dubai where our son who was dining with us lives. The food was awful, not freshly cooked and full of what seemed to be monosodium glutamate, it was very glooopy, not what you expect from what is supposed to be a top... More

I've travelled to Thailand only once and fell in love with their food. The Blue elephant is in my opinion; the best Thai restaurant Outside of Thailand. I've read mixed reviews about this restaurant but in my case the experience has always been very good. If you like Thai, this is a Must when in london.

The new location at the imperial's wharf in chelsea is very modern but the restaurant has still its lovely charme. The stuff is so friendly and helpful. The menu offers a lot.. But with the offer from oldschool, commercial and future cuisine thai-style a perfect range! The prices are quite high, but the atmosphere, service and the great food are... More

My boyfriend took me here for our anniversary and it was absolutely amazing. He had initially booked our table for 19.30, but as we had arrived a bit early the reception was happy to seat us at 19.00. We were seated and given menus, we ordered drinks and a starter each. We were then given a complimentary plate of something,... More

Beautiful unique decor. As you enter it is almost a different world inside. The service was excellent, food was of a very high quality. Price is as you would expect for a high quality restaurant in that area! We enjoyed our experience although the only issue we had was finding parking! Would definitely come again.
