It's the price. This is overpriced, pure and simple. Bland, average food that costs more per head than Nahm - one of the best in Bangkok, and just up the road.

Unfortunately, since your review is too generic we are unable to understand what actually went wrong during your dinner. Trip Advisor is a great platform where people can share and read opinions; however on the business owners side, it would be useful... More

Went here as it was next to our hotel. I knew it would be pricey when they made me wear trousers. The restaurant inside is really nice and the food was good along with the service. You seem to be paying for the name here as where as it was nice, we had the same elsewhere for a quarter of... More

The Blu elephant is really a nice restaurant in a very nice colonial style building. The food is really nice ( suggest to take the set menu to try different things), the prices are ok ( not cheap, but not too expensive). The service is nice and the guys are doing the best to check how things were going. I... More

We bought the set menu for the day and it was great! Especially the duck! The staff will tell you in detail about the dish if you're interested. A bit pricey compared to normal non-upscale restaurants but worth a visit!

I know Blue Elepahnt Dubai and the Bangkok one is even better. Situated in the financial district on Sathorn it offers a cosy home-atmosphere and and excellent Thai cooking for reasonable prices. The set up and premises are woth a visit and the staff is very helpful and knowlegable.

The waitress named POEI was horrible - never smiled, very impatient, and basically looked like she was pissed off - now she seemed better with the other table who had more people. Totally unacceptable and ruined what coulda been a better experience. The other waitresses (namely May) and waiters were very nice thou - which should be the standard for... More

Really good restaurant. Go there, its worth a visit. Not very expensive either ( about 2500-3000 tbht pp for a three course incl wine and a drink). Try the Thai wine, a positive surprise.
