The restaurant venue takes you to a visit in the past and the food brings you to the future. Amazing restaurant and not expensive If you compare to a nice restaurant in Brazil. We spend less than 100 dollars for a 3 person meal.

the chef who taught us was funny, engaging and explained all the ingredients. I loved the fact that they gave you a printed certificate of attendance. There are a few cooking schools in bangkok and i would highly recommend this one, the one that we did was fully booked and we got to eat our meal at the end which... More

My first experience with Blue Elephant was in Phuket. We really enjoyed our meal there and I was going to introduce BE to my friends when we were in Bangkok during my recent trip. I was really disappointed. There were 3 of us and I requested for a bigger round table. My request was turned down despite the fact that... More

I have heard of Blue Elephant's reputation from friends in the past and finally my family and I dined in the restaurant when we were in Bangkok for the recent Lunar New Year holidays. The food was amazing! The presentation was great and food was "superlicious"! The décor and ambience were great too. Highly recommended!

This is the second time today and he asked to spend the whole day there! It's really fun. They visited the market this morning and learned how to make shrimp cakes and 7 other dishes.

My wife and I took our two kids aged 11 and 9 to the school for a morning class. I deliberately chose the morning class because it included a visit to a local market. I consider this whole experience the highlight of our trip. The school is very well run and the class is structured nicely, over four courses (appetiser,... More

My teenage daughter and I recently attended the afternoon cooking session. The venue was lovely, and it was easily accessible by the skytrain. From Surasak station you use exit 2 and you can see the building from the platform. We cooked 4 dishes which were demonstrated first and then you could taste the dish and then head off to cook...

This really is a great place, they take you to the market to tell you about all the ingredients and show you where they come from then you head back to the kitchen to cook 4seperate dishes with a demonstration in between each. At the end of the morning you get to... More

We enjoyed a private class for two and made four dishes (see photos). Excellent chef (Chay) and good equipment. It's all about aroma people. Then we ate our dishes at the restaurant tables downstairs. Get involved. We will save thousands not ordering take away!

Staying in Sathorn

Neighborhood Profile
Sathorn
Sathorn is Bangkok’s central business district, but here you’ll find much more than international banks and suited-up office workers. Take a stroll along the small alleys between the skyscrapers and you’ll find yourself among Bangkokians living life at a much slower pace. Feast on fantastic Thai food which you can find in the town-house restaurants, office food courts and sidewalk food stalls spread all over the area, especially around St. Louis Hospital. A visit to Sathorn is not complete without a drink at one of the glitzy sky bars perched atop its skyscrapers.
