Description: 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.

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.

After a thought day and even harder week it was a treat to dine in this beautiful restaurant. The service was friendly and efficient with my food arriving at just the right time. Even though this restaurant is listed as expensive I found that my bill was no more than the local pub across the courtyard. I will go back... More

The first time I loved it, the 2nd not so much. It was fairly difficult to get to, once outside it looked derelict and I wondered if it had closed down. The new restaurant doesn't have the same atmosphere as the original one. The food was pretty average, it didn't have the wow factor that it had on my first... More
