Fantastic setting and good Thai food

We enjoyed our visit to Blue Elephant and the food was good. We probably ordered too much by selecting the set menu, and the quantity of food (particular the number of main courses) was a bit overwhelming! I feel you are mainly paying for the venue and service - which were excellent - as the food... read more

We enjoy visiting the Blue ELephant whenever we're in Bangkok and try to stop by at least once. The food is excellent and the service is great too, it must be good as there's a variety of pictures on the wall showing past diners ranging from american presidents to international celebrities. They also have a cooking school, which we might... More

I went to the Restaurant two nights in a row. The restaurant was busy both nights. It was the most amazing Thai food I have eaten in Bangkok. They offered variety of food with classic and fusion twist. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The decor of the restaurant is very homely. Mood lighting create an ambience feeling. When...

Heard so much good things about this place before and have been to the one in London. Had high hopes when visit. We ordered the tasting menu. Plus the spicy fish curry alongside. Tasting menu is ok, tastes alright. pretty blend, no excitement. Spicy fish curry supposed to be the most spicy dish from the menu, but blend too. With... More

Visited bangkok for songkran festival and decided to have fancy dinner here based on my couple recommendation. Food tasted not original Thai cuisine. We had set dinner menu. Appetizers was good but when they served main course food not really amazing as what I desired.

When you pay such a price the food should be perfect and served at the right temperature! This was absolutely not the case!!! You definitely don't get what you pay for,... Sad, the Brussels restaurant was so perfect 20 years ago!!! We were really disappointed,...

Lovely experience but, to be honest, the food was not as good as the Blue Elephant on the Fulham Road in London.

Sadly, despite many visits and attempts to give them the benefit of the doubt, the Blue Elephant is a shadow of its former self. Overpriced, incredibly rude staff, with food that no longer deserves its historic acclaim. Starters were a long time coming and not worth the wait and the famous Green Curry was watery and flavourless. I'm done with... More

A welcomed dining experience as we were able to try some excellent Thai specialties. Try the crab in yellow curry, Devine!
