Nice for group function

We had a work function here where they closed the restaurant for all but us. The food and atmosphere were nice, but the bar service was awful. The wait staff could not seem to bring out drinks within 30 minutes of when we would order. I suppose they would be better if it were not a large group.

Went for dinner at the Blue elephant on 7 May with prior reservation. The restaurant was full of mosquitoes !! repeated request resulted in getting a spray at table done. The food was much below our expectations. We ordered Thai fish cakes - could not finish as it was a piece of rubber !! Tom yang kung was below standard... More

The waitress had good knowledge about Thai food and how to serve like 5star dining experience. The food was excellent for me, not as expensive as the restaurant in hotel or another fine dining restaurant. I loved the soft shell crab yellow curry, it was very rich in curry sauce, herbs, and spices. However, it could be in a contrast... More

We came here on the valentine's day. Although they have a special menu for the day, we opted for the set menu from the a la carte. It includes appetisers, soup, main course and dessert. The tom yum soup came in a petty portion, and the seafood was overcooked. The set of appetisers were not bad. The prawn cake was... More

I am preplexed to why this restaurant attracts such few table cover changes. Yes, it's expensive but without doubt the quality of food is awesome. We went for the Sunday buffet as a family and I think it's really good value for money priced at approx 250,000 IDR nett per person. We had the tom yum soup with chicken and... More

When you dine in here, allow yourself at least 2 hour to enjoy not only its food but also its ambience. This restaurant's attention to detail clearly separate itself from others. This restaurant is surrounded by nice architecture and decor throughout the place with some statues and furniture brought from Thailand. When the food is being served, please take a... More

I entered into this restaurant when I craved for tom yam soup. The interior and furniture are gorgeous and look up market. The soup was good. I also ordered Thai salad with jeruk Bali which turned out very good. The Thai dining ware is very artistic. I admire its elephant-shaped tea pot. Thai lunch buffet was being prepared. I recalled...
