On arriving at our table, we were greeted with a cocktail menu. As we had not been able to secure a reservation before 10 pm, we had already enjoyed a cocktail in the Hilton bar and were ready to eat! It took 20 mins for the menu and wine list to be presented. My husband ordered a bottle of wine,... More

Through reviews and advertisements and being located at Hilton, I always considered the Blue Elephant as a high class restaurant. Being a special occasion, my husband's 30th birthday, I booked a table for 2 at this restaurant and was very looking forward to give him the surprise and enjoy the whole restaurant experience. However although I must say the ambience,... More

I liked the cocktails and the starter, but my main dish wasn't my cup of tea! Next time I'd play safe!

I'm a big fan of Thai food and this did not disappoint. We opted for the Banquet menu and I can safely say we did not go hungry... What was great about the Banquet Menu though was the fact we could try a bit of everything, it had alot of variety and we tried things we may not have tried... More

Ever since my trip to Thiland I have been searching for the perfect Phad-Thai - like the one I had there - I found it in this restaraunt!! The decor is just spectacular, with koi fish, orchids everywhere, and a waterfall and bridge right there in the restaraunt. The food and service are 5 star. It is on the pricy... More

arrived at opening time (table booked for 1900) which I would recommend as then you can get a nice table outside overlooking the marina. Décor is very Thai and the restaurant seems to take up the whole 1st floor of the hotel. Service was very good - polite but not overbearing and the food was excellent. Overall a real nice... More

You'll be surprised by the warm welcome and by the friendly staff. If you choose to stay out you'll have a splendid view of the marina but you'll share the view with a bunch of hungry mosquitoes. The Thai food is excellent and well served. The wines are quite ok. Take care not to get there if you're not hungry... More

Having spent a fair bit of time in Thailand a visit to a Thai restaurant has to be very good to get a decent review from me. Blue Elephant ticks all the boxes in terms of decor, it is magnificent. However, the food is a mixed bag, some good and some average. The starters were good, satay nicely cooked and... More

The night we went was very hot and we had a table outside. We went early (around 745pm) and within an hour it was packed outside and almost full inside. The decor is beautiful - inside and out. We were all impressed. When we arrived service was quick and they were keen, throughout the evening, to check we were happy... More

Having read some of the negative reviews on this site mostly from those who self indulgently try to compare non native restaurants with their experiences in Thailand I am pleased to say that they are all way off the mark. The food is Thai at it's very best. The surroundings are second to none and if you are able to... More
