Delicious food, Beautiful space

We came for an early dinner before an event. No reservations are needed before 6:30pm. We were graciously welcomed and the staff was attentive and professional. We enjoyed all of our food, especially the Mieng Kham. Overall, it was a step down from what we ate in Thailand but it was delicious... read more

This establishment to my knowledge is supposedly to be very known for it's best Thai Cuisine... I ordered 3 simple dishes. The fish cake that's so rubbery and the sauce was plain sweet. The green curry with a thick taste of instant coconut milk not fresh... The morning glory well over cooked and a stench that it seems the ingredient... More

If you like Thai food a visit to the Blue Elephant is always a treat. I used to be a regular at their London branch back in the days when I lived in the Big Smoke and whenever I come across one of their outlets on my travels I'm always tempted to pop in. On this occasion there was a... More

The decor of the restaurant is fine-dine. Service is excellent. Portion is very small. Being a small eating couple, we took 4 dishes and desserts and walked out still not full. The food quality is good. The dessert platter is very refreshing and great. We found the lighting to be too dark, can't see our food properly. Defeats the purpose... More

Been here twice and there's not much improvement with the food. The pad thai was still under expectation. The pandan chicken is not fragrant and flavorful at all. The only thing I like during both my visit is the lemongrass tea. The flavor is awesome. Hopefully they can improve the quality of the dishes since this restaurant is meant to... More

Service is good, and the waiting time when you order until the food is served is short. There are quite a lot of choices of menu. I tried noodle salad and mango salad as appetizer, it fresh and delicious. However the Thom Yam is a bit let down since the shrimp is not fresh, although the herb is strong and... More

Came in late in the afternoon at 8pm, there were only three tables occupied, which made me wondered is there something wrong with this restaurant. The staff were nice though they looked tired, we could still see a smile in their faces. While waiting for the orders we were served by a starters - nothing special with the taste. Speaking... More
