My 3rd visit here and it gets better each time. We also visited Blue Elephant in Bangkok a few years ago and equally amazing. Food is great and the service impeccable. We will be back again!

Slightly overpriced thai food but special ambience. Location is a bit out of the way. Elephant tea pots add a nice touch.

When you first enter, it cleverly gives you little indication of the size of the place, due to the amount of jungle type plants, it leads back into many tables and privacy seating places, all surrounded by more plants, the atmosphere is very romantic with tastefull low lighting. There is virtually every type of Asian quisine ( mostly Thai )... More

I was disappointed to find the Blue Elephant had closed down when I went there recently without booking. However all was not lost as I ate in a Japanese/Korean restaurant a few doors away. Beni Shoga proved to be a great find and I have reviewed it separately on Tripadvisor.

I've been here a few times when in London for business and it's always so, so good. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the food is out of this world. Service is sometimes a little lacking... not enough to knock a star off but, if they're even slightly busy, you need to wait for drinks and your bill for longer... More

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.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
