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.

Amazing Thai Food

I had a delicious meal at Blue Elephant. Service was great. We choose the Amazing Thailand Tasting Menu, which I strongly recommend. It's an explosion of flavors. A bit expensive, but worth every penny.

I visited with my Dad (who has been before to the Broadway restaurant) and young daughter and we were not at all impressed. The atmosphere was nothing special, location difficult to get to, service was appalling (had dessert with dirty dinner plates still on the table), food was average and the bill was ridiculously expensive for that we ate.

I went to this restaurant with a party of 8, as nice as the restaurant may look it is far from being good. The staff weren't really accommodating, and the food was of an average quality and definitely not worth the price, I would say most of the mains are around £20-28 and the side dish such as sticky rice...

After a lot of head scratching were showed to an area of about 15 tables, one that was already occupied, and seated.

The Blue Elephant used to be in Fulham, and has now moved. It was famous for having an indoor river, jungle-like decor and ambiance, lagoons, canoes, and individual eating areas based on huts. It was beautiful. It was costly, and sometimes the food was hit-and-miss, but it was absolute beautiful and stunning inside. And then they moved. Somehow they seemed... More

Firstly I will say we could not fault the food in any way. In our experience... Dining out is not just about the food. We were meeting friends who were running slightly late. My husband and I were led to a downstairs area to wait.. By a very stressed waiter. We ordered our drinks... Waited 20 minutes for them to... More
