My husband and I stumbled into Blue Elephant whilst we were exploring Old Phuket Town. We had no idea which restaurant to try so I went onto Trip Advisor and saw raving reviews for Blue Elephant so decided to give it a try. Thank you Trip Advisor for the amazing recommendation as it was one of the best food we... More

The atmosphere and staff were wonderful. The staff was very accommodating and polite. The menu was diverse. Presentation was great. The food itself was spectacular. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Phuket.

Beautiful setting, building and grounds. Restaurant is in an old Portuguese mansion. Authentic and beautiful Thai menu with excellent service. The Blue Elephant is well worth a visit. Pricing is a little higher than other near by Thai restaurants but the food, service and ambiance exceeds the price. They also conduct Thai cooking classes here as well.

I visited for lunch on a Thursday, very quiet but staff still friendly and attentive. I enjoyed the food which was tasty and authentic. The mansion it is set in is beautiful and worth a look around.

This is one of the several famous Blue Elephant Restaurants in Thailand, England, France, Denmark, Indonesia etc. which has a cooking school teaching Royal Thai Cuisine. We came fro afternoon drinks only, but I believe the food must be equally as good as the building, a Governor's Mansion, and its interior design. This is a MUST SEE when in Phuket... More

We went on an ad hoc visit as we was walking around Phuket old town. If you catch a taxi from the resort they will ask if you want them to wait. Tell them you will have dinner in the Blue Elephant and the taxi will be waiting for you outside. The ambience of the restaurant is very nice. Very... More

We had a really nice family lunch here as a special treat on our holiday. The food was enjoyable and the team that served us - including 2 and 4 year olds! - very helpful and accommodating. The setting was really nice, an oasis in the hectic city, and we enjoyed the ambience. Our favourite dishes were the crab curry... More

I was very disappointed with the Blue Elephant, The food was mediocre, the service was poor and it was very expensive for Thailand. We had much better meals for less than half the price elsewhere during our stay in Phuket. It is a mystery to me h9w this place receives such good reviews on Tripadvisor. We were presented with two... More
