I attended on the 16/7/2016 For my friends birthday and was very disappointment after spending £45 per head plus 12.5 service charge for a set menu that we all had to share.. The starters were cold, the main course was disgusting and unprepared and portions served as if you were feeding a 5yr old child. The desert was awfully bitter... More

Sunday buffet is totally a rip off. No pad Thai, mains were just a lot of sloppy mains in sauce, all tastes very similar! At £30 per head, it's overpriced and the food is upstairs two flights of wooden stairs, so you are carrying plates and bowls down the stairs! Starters were mainly salads, and fried food. Nothing special that... More

My Husband and I went to Blue Elephant on Friday 01.07.16 to celebrate our anniversary. Food was rather bland and tasteless. We ordered Okra which was suppose to be Very hot but that had no flavours nor any spicies. The only dish we enjoyed was the Spicy papaya salad. Our drinks took forever to be served!! So poor service, food... More

The food was great, tasty and full of flavours. I can't eat spicy food but what I did eat had a slight punch and I left the restaurant fulfilled. Would happily return 👍

Many years ago it was the Thai restaurant to visit, not only was the food amazing but also the atmosphere, now day's it's just one more In London and there plenty all over. The price has been kept extremely high for what's offered taking into account that all of the rest of the Thais in London or most of them... More

It has been a number of years since we ate at the Blue Elephant, was still in Fulham so 5+yrs. I booked fathers day lunch there yesterday as a lovely treat for the family. I was so gutted with that choice almost immediately, The choice is pretty thin on the ground, but the one real disappointment was the quality. the... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time, and were frankly very disappointed with total lack of Thai staff, sub-standard service and poor management overall. While the waiter was very polite, I am afraid he was very poorly trained. Overall a very pricey and over-hyped International restaurant considering its location.

I have to admit, I was disappointed at first. I couldn't believe after so many years blue elephant moved location. It is a bit far (for me at least) to get to, but definitively I will go back when I fancy a green curry..... New location is not bad, has a great river view. you can take a look at... More

Quite tasty but could be better for the price. Some waiting in between dishes. Nice traditional ambiance.

Very good Thai food - had a gorgeous Lamb dish, slightly stingy with the fried rice, had to request more. Very close to Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, nice stroll across the road

Description
A local landmark on The Boulevard, the Blue Elephant Thai restaurant brings an authentic Royal Thai dining experience to bustling West London. Considered one of the finest Thai restaurants in London, the Blue Elephant serves delicious traditional dishes prepared with ingredients flown in from Thailand on a weekly basis, served up amidst tropical foliage and lush water gardens. Your meal will be presented to you by the friendly, attentive staff in national Thai costume, who will also occasionally entertain diners with traditional Thai dancing displays. A popular spot for couples, who cosy up under the thatched pergolas, the Blue Elephant is renowned for its refined cuisine, which also includes a wide range of vegetarian dishes, an extensive wine list and a Sunday brunch with children's entertainment. Ideal for relaxing with a classic cocktail, the opulent Blue Bar is highlighted by a replica of the Suphannahong - the Royal Barge of Thailand.
