Despite the hype the food was only roughly Thai. The greeting staff were excellent but service was poor. Request for more sauce with one dish was ignored. Excellent outdoor location though

We ate here with a friend during our recent stay in Malta and it was all very nice. We hadn't booked but arrived early enough that getting a table wasn't a problem. Service was very good, menu was excellent, although in my view, quite expensive. We would eat here again and would recommend.

We didn't book a table but were seated inside with a view of the terrace. You need to book if you want a table outside. The restaurant is beautiful with lush plants, a bridge and running water. The waitress was very friendly and explained the dishes to us. We considered the Thai banquet which is reasonably priced at €38 but... More

Pricey, but serves mouth watering Royal Thai Cuisine, combined with an outstanding ambience which is unique in Malta, including a lovely waterfall, which really helps you relax. Most of the food they offer is gluten free. As a result, my fiancee was so happy she could choose what she like most from the menu available. She described the Blue Elephant... More

Beautiful restaurant, part of the Hilton hotel. The food was good and we were advised on the strength of the curry but most of us found the food too spicy after choosing a milder curry and although the flavours were good not enough meat! Cocktails were impressive but expensive!

Really good food, loved the location of the restaurant. Staff and service excellent also. A little pricey but worth it I guess.

Stayed at the Hilton and was looking forward to eating here as an avid Thai food lover since we booked our trip. The dinner started off nice enough being seated next to the coy pond. The food service was slower than any place I have ever been and after the wait, the food was very average. Additionally, when the special... More

We stayed at the Hilton Malta for 5 nights and booked the Blue Elephant for our last night. The whole experience was great. Lovely location overlooking the Marina. Staff and Service was very good and the food was excellent. The cocktails were tasty and complimented the food. We had the starter and main course banquets so that we could all... More

Lovely setting but the food is just ordinary. Service a little slow to start, took a while to get a drink but improved.
