We had the lunch set and it was excellent. Not a budget place but well worth the price in my estimation. Sat out on the veranda. Beautiful house and grounds.

We were walking around in Old Phuket Town, trip advisor recommended the Blue Elephant in the area. Great building as you pull up. The place was packed. Very good Thai food. One of our best meals of the week. Highly recommended!

After trying many thai restaurants in Phuket - the Blue Elephant is the ultimate thai restaurant. Very fine thai cuisines and ambiance. Staffs are very helpful when required assistance on the menu.

The Classic Menu is family style Thai vs the Set Menus which are more Western style. I am not sure about high chairs.

Unfortunately we didn't do cooking classes - we were there for an evening meal only. The setting is beautiful and Thai food amazing, you can't go wrong with classes.
