My wife had the lamb which was to kill for, I had the spareribs which I expected more from. The service was great, friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Would recommend this to anyone who is planning a special evening.

We went there for dinner the food was nice. Not amazing and the staff were friendly but not terribly good at their job. The waitress had to return to ask how I wanted my lamb chops cooked and there were a couple of other things like that where if the price was half that amount fine but was far and... More

We reserved seats for us just 3 hours back or else it was peak time and I recommend you to book earlier. The staffs are good and kind. The thai food is amazing with fragrant smell and flavour and tastes delicious. I ate crab meat in red curry and it was great. My mom and dad ordered 2 thai set... More

But if you are feeling hungry the Amuse... More

My friend and I were here on January 2017, and it was the most disappointing restaurant in Phuket. Cheap street food tasted better than the food in this overrated restaurant. Mind you, we are familiar with Thai cuisine and we saved this restaurant for last. - Food: Steamed Purple Dumplings: tasteless Scallops: Fishy and unrefined Ribs: Dry, flavourless, and almost...

Had the special New Year's dinner here with some friends. While maybe a bit overpriced (we had Thai food the next day as well for a fraction of the cost, although the setting was very different), certainly worth a visit when in Phuket (town). For us the first time to actually go into Phuket town and we were very pleasantly... More

A Thai friend organised the trip, just for an afternoon snack. It was beautiful, and the food was great. Service was also good, and they were able to cater for specific diets (gluten-free and vegan).

I brought my VIP guests to Blue elephant Phuket on the 2nd Jan 2017, 1PM, expecting to have a nice lunch set menu experience, however it all ruined since the course started. • We booked table for 6 set menus for each person but when the dishes arrived, they arrived in the share portions (placed in the middle on the...

We have visited many times and this time was not as good. We had to wait at the bar, that was so unpleasant hot one had to take shelter in the shop. With no reservation, Tuesday, they arranged a table for 5. It said to be fully booked, that was not the case. Satay skewers, beef good, Chicken RAW. Not... More

The building itself and the garden are beautiful, especially when you arrive at night. Inside the building you have the feeling to be back 100 years ago at the time of colonies. About the service, it has been very good from the beginning to the end. The food is the key element of this restaurant. In line with the restaurant... More
