I am a fan of Thai food – I own the Blue Elephant cookbook myself and made various recipes from the book, back in the days I bought the book I had always looked forward to eat at one of the Blue Elephant restaurants. Unfortunately this experience was really a letdown and it has “tourist trap” written all over it:... More

This restaurant is truly beautiful! As soon as you step through the door you get the sense of being in a restaurant that takes pride in its appearance. We didn't have a reservation, as it was a last minute trip (plane was leaving in 3 hours), but luckily we got a table for a very limited time. And boy am... More

This is true fine dining in Bangkok in a beautiful old building. It's one of my favourite places in the world to eat. Excellent food, and attentive service.

The food was delicious and plentiful, the ambiance of the place was wonderful, very relaxing and the service excellent. The Hotel had booked the table for us and must have mentioned that it was our wedding anniversary, so after our main course we asked for our bill. They then came over with a lovely dessert and drinks to celebrate our... More

Food was OK, but really would expect more from such a highly praised place. Frankly I had better meals in cheaper places than this. That said the place looks beautiful inside and out. But the real bummer was the service level. Any restaurant that takes your wine bottles so the waiters can fill your glasses, should really be able to... More

The food was absolutely delicious the portions are quite big (and we are big eaters) but the menu has so many dishes to choose from and from different eras that we probably ordered too much!. The staff were... More

We came here on a Saturday evening with no reservation. After checking they said they had one table but good for only 1.5 hours. They were fairly concerned that the time was not long enough. The time was just right. The restaurant is in an old wooden house or business. The restaurant is very well done with an ambiance that... More

We went to the Blue Elephant in Bangkok for a cooking class. This turned out to be a superb afternoon where we learned to cook great Thai dishes in an extremely well organized cooking school with a great ambience. The menu consisted of followin dishes: -Stir fried rice with shrimps -Coconut milk soup with chicken -Red curry with Sea bass... More
