An experience not to be missed

Someone recommended that we visit this restaurant, and we were so pleased that they did. We love Thai food and were not disappointed with the quality, size of portions, and the service provided. Definitely a must on our next visit.

Our family of 4 dined here recently and enjoyed our meal. The service was very good. My wife ordered a fruity drink and our kids (on seeing it) went nuts. The waiter then brought each of them mini-drinks which the kids loved. That was typical of very good service throughout the meal. Our appetizers "Golden Bags" - shrimp - and... More

Visited this restaurant based on the trip advisors recomendations and although the food was good it did not reflect the price paid. Came away feeling as if something was missing. Waitresses were very friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was fantastic but the food did not have that wow factor that you would expect when dining at the Hilton. Nothing... More

Blue Elephant in Malta, part of the Hilton Hotel is perhaps my favourite restaurant in Malta. I visit Malta regularly and each time I make time to have a dinner here. For years it has always lived up to my expectations. This is an excellent Thai restaurant with delicious menu and a good wine list. Go!

We had our Christmas dinner here after arriving in Malta earlier in the day. As expected with the Blue Elephant chain of restaurants, the place is amazingly decorated with pond and bridges in the centre of the venue etc. However, the dining experience was let down somewhat by the food (the most important thing!). A little bland and overpriced -... More

The food here is excellent but expensive. My only problem was that every dish (more or less) had chilli in it so my food was limited. Husband and son enjoyed it as they like spices. The staff are excellent and very friendly and efficient.

This was my first time visiting the Blue Elephant and I must say it was a great experience. The location is stunning and the atmosphere very intimate and romantic and the catering staff were very attentive to our every need and explained every dish well. We opted for the Royal Thai Banquet which was delicious and beautifully presented. Will definitely... More

I visited the Blue Elephant with my girlfriend for New year's eve dinner, the food was full of exotic flavors, which we both loved, all the waiters and staff were superb. The only let down was the change never came and no-one was there to greet us on the way out. The receptionist at the restaurant wasnt there either on... More

If you have never visited this restaurant you are in for a treat. I am actually not a Thai food lover However I will not let this get in front of a good review. There is no doubt this restaurant is the most beautiful restaurant on the island. Your table is decorated in a Thai style, plus there is a... More
