We had very good food l, but the service was to say the least very slow, we had to ask several times for different fishes/drinks. We got different wine when we asked for a 'glass of wine'... I don't think we're coming back.

Great if you can make it on Wednesday evenings when they have a great buffet at a very reasonable reasonable price!

I has been this restaurant before then at this time I bring my friends here. Since we are Thai so this restaurant has done very good job for real Thai food. The serving style might be suit for European style but the food is still Thai food.

We had dinner at Blue Elephant on May 5th and we had a great time. The head waitress was very considerate and took good care of all the customers, we could choose between several tables and were advised to take a nice little table in a corner, surrounded by plants. Excellent choice. We took the 65€ menu: every dish was... More

Good thai restaurant a bit out of the city centre. Excellent menu with different items to try for a reasonable price. Good cocktails!

I went to the Blue Elephant for the first time in 5 years yesterday lunchtime when it was very quiet, and maybe that helped considering some of the criticisms that I have read. I specifically asked for my meal to be "Thai taste" pet pet which maybe meant that I didn't experience the excessive sweetness that others have complained about... More

We arrived in a nice ambiance. Friendly staff, small tables and good cocktails. We ordered the menu and the red housewine. The starters and the soup ( Thom Kha Kai) are delicious. The rest of the dishes are too sweet and nothing to do with the original Thai kitchen. Price quality of the food is poor. Compliments to the very... More

We chose this restaurant following nice experience we had in Blue Elephant in Paris. We liked however the Parisian one more. Warm welcoming and receiving a flower while leaving - these are two things which certainly constitute nice accents of the visit to the restaurant. Original decoration of the restaurant also attracts attention. Food and wine however did not fully... More

Many pleasant visit at the Blue Elephant over the years, including a cooking class in Bangkok. The Brussel outfit was the start of the "imperium". Royal threat, but also some modern twist to the Thai cuisine can be found. Had my all-time favorite with thai herbs in a leaf, presented the same way I had at a different Elephant in... More

The Blue Elephant has existed for many years and used to be the reference Thai restaurant in Brussels, known for its quality and authentic Thai dishes. I have eaten there many times since the 90's, but for some reason did not go in the last 5 years. We went to dinner for a Thai meal with friends yesterday. The friends... More

Blue Elephant Thai restaurant just south of Brussels City was the first of the celebrated group that may eventually take over the world -- to general applause. This is a chic Thai fantasy, an Eden of exotic flora to take you far from the busy metropolis outside. During the day the stunningly-appointed dining room is naturally lit from the skylight above, while in the evening candles and lamps take over. It is lushly decorated with exotic plants, beautiful orchids, Buddhas, Thai woodwork, comfy bamboo chairs, and smiling Thai-costumed waitstaff.
