The food and service was an ACE!

I was just passing and looking for a place to eat. I was captivated by the old architecture. The blue elephant and cooking school. Since I'm new to the place and I like Thai food I gave myself a try. I was wearing slippers and I thought it was inappropriate to dine, but the host admitted me without... read more

Party of 10 having dinner the Blue Elephant. Food is very ordinary but very expensive. We ordered the set dinner and the portion is very small. Guess we will not return.

It was maybe a touch of luck that my hotel (eastin) was conveniently near this restaurant. after a tiring flight i rewarded myself by indulging in authentic thai cuisine which i have always been craving for. For i know u can never eat real thai food when you are not in Thailand, so i grabbed the chance once and for... More

It is my second visit to this restaurant. The food is great as usual and love the fact that they change menu every now and then to keep creating new dishes. I love the crispy crab soffoule, I love the pearls of blue elephant, the curry, the mango sticky rice ... Just hope they all will still be on the... More

The food is decent but definitely over priced. Service is good and ambiance is great. Getting there is convenient; it is just across the road from the Surasak BTR station.

We came with a high expectation of the restaurant but were utterly disappointed with the service. For Service: 1. No hygiene:The staff accidentally dropped the napkin to the floor and, to our surprise, put it back on the chair instead of changing it. My sister had to request for a new napkin! 2. Waitress named May was quite rude and... More

Overpriced. The staff were very attentive & professional. The food were widespread, compared to fine dining. However, if you ask for Jasmine fragrant rice, which was delicious, it adds on to 60baht for 2, though it was only *laughs* a morsel. Number of elephants beside the dish on the menu states the amount of spice. Try not to get beyond... More

All the team works hard on the kitchen and they make sure you will learn all aspects of the Original Thai Cuisine. I would like to thank s for Chef Tiger and his team for all great experience.
