Excellent thai food in jakarta but only if you want to eat alone....

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... read 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 had been to this Restaurant in Bangkok so thought I would try Jakarta. We made a reservation but when we arrived at 8 pm on a Sat night the place was dead. We ordered and service was initially quite good, however, service dropped to a minimum. The food was good UNTIL, we saw not one, not two, not three,... 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...

The food is great. We had padthai green curry and a shrimp dish with a few appetizers. They have a lunch special of less than 100th for a 2course meal. 3 of us dined for $50! Gorgeous restaurant

It was the best Thailand food we ever taste in Jakarta... Especially the tom yam koong... you can taste the original one, like the one in Thailand... And my other favorite is the chicken pandan... yummy... The service was also excellent, the waiter informed us about the estimated time finishing our ordered food... And they always cater all of our... More

The food is ok, the prawn cake is delicious; the taste of curry is not better than la nan Thai which also serving Thai food. The resto setup is nice, it also provides the outdoor smoking area. We spent $100 for 4 persons, which generally is not too expensive for dining a good place in Jakarta now.

It is simply the best Thai food you would have ever had. 14 months in Jakarta we have gone there at least 15 times. Par-excellence service, great beverages, excellent starters, main course and desserts. It provides the most satisfying gastronomical journey through Thailand minus the traffic and noise. Red, Yellow, Orange or Green curry. Vegetarians will love it more as... More

The Blue Elephant delivers every time we go. This time travelling with family we booked in on a weeknight so it was fairly quiet. Highlights of the meal were the Tamarind duck and the prawn curry, though I was a little disappointed that I was missing one of my spicy 'elephants' out of the curry. I suspect they were trying...
