The Blue Elephant is probably the best Thai in Malta, although a little more expensive it is worth every penny. The staff are very friendly with great service. I love the little finishing touches they provide guests right down to giving a orchid to the ladies at the end of the evening. Makes you feel very special. Nice ambience too.

Excellent almost 5 course dinner. Prawn cracker galore, savory nibbles, soups, main course, dessert and tea. The staff were courteous, accommodating and friendly. Our table was lively but no one seemed to kind, people who didn't like their choices were given the opportunity to make alternate choices. Really fun evening and we got an orchid each. Lovely. The floral decor... More

Great decor and friendly service, but the food tasted like a supermarket ready meal; bland and tasteless. The restaurant was packed on a Saturday night and perhaps the kitchen was stretched, but there is no excuse for cold lumpy rice and glutinous sauces. This is one of the most disappointing Thai meals I have eaten.

Would never have believed Thai food could be so good even when prepared for those with food intolerances. Staff went out of their way to ensure it was prepared to our specification. It was tasty, beautifully presented and served with a smile. The ambiance was perfect and made for a relaxing meal. Will definitely go back again when back in... More

Best place to eat in Malta. Lovely welcome, ladies get an orchid. Decor makes you think you are in Thailand on a film-set, Even the staff are Thai looking, very gentle. Not too much waitering, not too little.... Exceptional food, love how the rice and veg is left alone so it contrasts with the spices in the other dishes. Rose... More

Went for dinner with my girlfriend. The staff were incredibly polite, professional and friendly with impeccable service even though the restaurant was very busy. The food was exquisite, and we enjoyed the unique atmosphere at our leisure even after the meal was over. Would definitely recommend it and we will surely visit again.

Went there with the Mrs and were awed by the surroundings, which are very unique. The restaurant is basically like a botanical garden, with fish swimming in a pond meters away from our table. The staff was very friend and attentive and did everything to make our dinner great. We had a starter with some chicken skewers, some wonderful spicy... More
