I did not like this restaurant, I had a date at this place and unfortunately she just left and made me pay for everything, the restaurant still ordered to pay for the whole thing and did not show any empathy on the fact I was screwed. They were rushing us and it was poor service. Goes to show that people... More

The service was like a scene off 'Fawlty Towers'. The manager was about to pour my water then a member of staff came to hand him a mobile phone. He then walked decided not to pour my emtpy glass but to walk off with my water and his mobile phone ! Several other incidences occurred. Slightly amateurish service overall. Food... More

Used to go to the old site of Blue elephant on Fulham road so was keen to go to the moved site. Expecting it to be more impressive but disappointed. Service was average, everyone seemed very unhappy. Decor seemed dated. Food was average. Very overpriced.

We were so looking forward to eating at the new incarnation having previously been a few times to the old location on Fulham Broadway. First of all the new venue just doesn't have the same vibe anymore. The old jungle them was much more enjoyable. The new theme is based around the old colonial interiors and was lame. The whole...

Good interesting food but ridiculously overpriced. Nice cocktails and service ok, but for these prices underwhelming overall.

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...

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.
