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.

We went there on Sunday for a sunday brunch. It’s a Thai style Buffet with a wide range of authentic Thai food. The starter was amazing with a fantastic selection of appetiser, spicy thai salad, soup noodle etc. Main course and dessert section are exceptional with an exotic fruits as well. We had a really great time there. Highly recommend... More

Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. Staff were very welcoming and attentive. The cocktails are pretty strong but ever so tasty! For mains I had the drunken beef which was delightfully spicy and my partner had the duck in plum sauce which was very scrumptious too. Great location and will return soon.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in London. Great quality yet very expensive. If you are lucky enough to get a table by the window you'll have a beautiful view over Thames. The vegetarian curry is heaven ( the red one). They have a vegetarian menu, you have a lot to choose from!

I haven’t been to The Blue Elephant since its relocation from the Fulham Road and my recollection of that previous incarnation was that it existed more on the theatre and ambiance of its venue more than the quality of its fare which I always thought to be rather ordinary yet very expensive. My delay in revisiting the Imperial wharf location... More

We booked 2 months in advance a table with good view on the river and were surprised to learn that nobody cared to save a proper table. We were offered a view to the wall instead. After long arguments we found a beautiful table outside on the veranda and our blood pressure went down with some cocktails on the house.... More

I had a meal there whilst visiting the Jazz Festival. The meal was nice but not enough. The portions were to small for the money paid. Nice place, beautiful setting by the river.

The food here is wonderful, with a good variety to choose from. And the service is fantastic too, they are very helpful and great at suggesting new dishes to try. Cost wise, it is very reasonable, and with it being such a small restaurant, you get a fabulous, homely experience.
