The Blue Elephant is a tranquil oasis of waterfalls, luscious greenery and tropical flowers. Smiling, friendly staff and the best Royal Thai Cuisine in Malta guarantees a memorable visit. Fresh fruits and herbs and also tons of orchids are flown in weekly direct from Thailand. Blue Elephant Malta offers you the possibility to reserve your own special space in this magnificent restaurant. Here you can surprise your guests in a unique atmosphere in our private huts. Blue Elephant can cater for a variety of occasions such as: Intimate Dining, Private Parties, Wedding Parties, Conference Dinners and many others….From the moment you step in the restaurant, you will be transported to the lands of the East. The waterfall, the landscaping and the seating will certainly carry you far, far away. Savour mouth-watering delicacies prepared from authentic Thai ingredients and forgotten centuries old recipes from the Royal Palace.

Like many others we read the reviews and thought this is worthy of a visit so we booked a table for 4 and made our way there. The public car park is a multi storey underground to near 5 levels with so many signs that and dead ends for residence only parking that it took us nearly half an hour... More

Blue elephant Hilton is the most popular about thai food in Malta. Massaman lamb curry is very very delicious, I loved it. Service is very good as well.

We have already been to the Blue Elephant in Bangkok and Brussels and I must that the one in Malta was a bit disappointing. The food was good, let's say just ok. For the price we paid (rather expensive) I expected more of it.

Step into a pan-Asian fantasy complete with Koi pond, lush gardens and wood-panelled huts. Surreal refuge on a rainy March evening. Oh, and the food and service was pretty solid too.
