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.

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.

A moderate Thai restaurant. For Vegetarians the food was nothing gr8 & no where close to the way people rave of it. Conveniently located off the metro station. Its a fine dining place

As we stayed next door in the Eastin grand hotel, visiting this restaurant was a must. We had lunch here, my wife had the duck and I had the crispy grouper. The sauce with the grouper was only mildly spicy and had more of a sweet and sour taste. I loved it My wife was quite happy with the duck... More

Beautiful looking restaurant, right next door to our hotel, The Eastin. Though service, decor, presentation etc were wonderful, the food itself was inferior to most of the other food I ate in Thailand. Nothing wrong with it, just average and lacking in real taste, just a typical 'style over substance' and of course much more expensive than most food in... More

We had one of the tasting menus which allowed us to try a large variety of Thai dishes. The restaurant is also very beautifully decorated.

The setting, in an old colonial bungalow with tastefully done up Thai-inspired interiors, is beautiful. The moment you step in to the place, you'll be convinced that you are in for a special experience... and it does not disappoint. We ordered the Miang Kham and crispy stuffed crab shells for appetizers and chicken red curry and fish in bamboo for... More

Listen carefully… VERY carefully. GO TO THE BLUE ELEPHANT! Make a reservation (you will need it) and GO. Don’t miss this experience. I went there once, and was supposed to go back… unfortunately cancelled due to the curfew in Bangkok. OK… this is what it is: POSITIVE POINTS: One word comes to mind when I think about this place… AMAZING.... More
