Perfect service, innovative Thai cuisine and really interesting decor. By far the best meal we had in Thailand and you should make a reservation.

We have just had the most amazing thai meal at the Blue Elephant. Yes, it's expensive for Bangkok but we wanted to treat ourselves and a treat it was indeed. We deliberately chose dishes we could not get back home and it was all amazing. Tasty, interesting and so unbelievably fresh. The atmosphere is very colonial and had a good... More

From the moment we entered the restaurant we were provided with outstanding service The interior is just lovely and sets the mood for a wonderful experience There were so many choices to pick from on the menu we could not miss anything. The solution was to order the sampler appetizer and the sampler entree which we shared. Great idea because... More

My husband and I just came back from the Turkey trip. As we've been having Turkish food and Instant noodles for more than a week then we're kind of like craving for Thai food. And also it's time for our anniversary so we wanna have the real Thai food with romantic atmosphere. The Blue elephant is the perfect answer. The... More

We came here for our anniversary. The lime fish was just beautiful, possibly one of the best I've had as the flesh of the fish literally melts in your mouth. The vegetarian green curry and papaya salad was also yummy, though it is the kind of yummy that can also be tasted elsewhere in less posh places. However, the service... More

Location - walkable from Surasak BTS station, easy to get to. Reception - warm, welcoming. We forgot attire requirements, and came in short (dressed shorts) so they gave really cool fisherman pants. Come dressed. But they should insist sloppy T shirts should not be allowed either, not just the "do not show knees". Food - Good, enjoyable, tasty. But just... More

We went to this restaurant because it was next to our hotel. It was a good choice. Our dinner was on the king's birthday and when we arrived, the entire staff was gathered around the TV at the entrance foyer with lit candles (we were given ones too) for the central ceremony of the day, and cheering the king. We... More

You will be hard pushed to find a more attractive setting to dine in Bangkok. A wonderful old style villa with a wonderful interior. This is also a cooking school....so the food should then be absolutely perfect. Right? I reviewed here this year already....in May I think. We three had the Royal Banquet each. The food could have been enjoyable... More
