Excellent food, served in wonderful surroundings, and reasonably priced. The staff are always friendly and attentive. A 'must' if you enjoy a taste of the far east.

We went for a dinner couple of days ago and the overall review would be good with few downsides. The best of all is the decor. It is one of the most beautiful restaurant we've ever seen. The food was excelent. Good portions and not too pricy. The beers though were extremely pricy. Double than in all the restaurants in... More

Today I visited this "Blue Elephant" and I was wowed!!. I could see the staff busy but still so nice and helpful, taking the time needed to explain the menu and the food. The restaurant is so relaxing with a nice waterfall in the middle of the restaurant filling the ambience with such relaxing and romantic background sound. I never... More

I realise from one of the comments that it may appear a bit juvenile to actually enjoy this kind of Disney or perhaps mini Las Vegas Thailand setting in Malta. But I have to admit… it was a pleasant surprise. We arrived for a business dinner at the Hilton Hotel and thought we were going to be treated to yet... More

Eating at what is essentially is an extension of a large hotel often delivers exactly what you expect. In this case – an amusing overly styled “Disney” Thai village with bridge and waterfall, waitresses in Thai outfits, with gifts and a menu including all the usual Thai dishes. What can I say – the place was busy, clean and full... More

Good variety of starters. Watch the chilli heat in the Tom Yam soup! The ambiance is great and service attentive. A gift of a scented candle for the ladies was a nice gesture

Last time I visited I noticed that the standard of previous years has gone down somehow. Prices still not the cheapest. No access for one of our wheelchair bound group and had to be manually lifted down the stairs. Not really respectable.
