Went here last night, if you look at my previous reviews all are mainly positive. I feel however that I need to leave this review due to the shambles we experienced last night. Ordered red wine on entering and the person who poured it then placed it in a wine bucket - okay maybe a mistake ! Then the food... More

My husband and I just enjoyed a most wonderful dinner at The Blue Elephant. We arrived early and were seated promptly in a little corner near the coy pond. The ambiance was alluring and we could not stop observing the bridge over the coy pond, Asian style architecture and décor. We ordered drinks and sparkling water which were brought out... More

We came here with high expectations which were fully satisfied! Food and ambiance was great together with high level service. It was also my wife's birthday and she was surprised with a beautiful flower together with a sumptuous peach pastry with two Thai people singing happy birthday to her a cappella! Will surely return!

Rich in taste and I left the restaurant with a smile on my face. The fact that my wife received at flower on departure added a nice touch to the experience.... More

We have been staying in the Hilton Malta for the last twelve nights, and dined in the Blue Elephant tonight for the third time. We have always found the food delicious and the service very good, but both excelled tonight. It was our wedding anniversary, and we were made to feel very special from the get-go, especially by Christoph the... More

This resturant is part of the Hilton but you would think you had found a slice of Thailand. The decor and setting are magical and the staff friendly and efficeint. We visited twice during our stay and have to say this is probably some of the best Thai food we have eaten. If you want to enjoy really good Thai... More

Fabulous food, service and setting next to all the large yachts. Really tasty Thai food - share the mixed starter as quite large servings! The curries are the best I've eaten. The staff are polite and on the ball. Have a drink in the Hilton first then walk through the restaurant to get the whole ambience with its bridge in... More

Amazing experience. Entourage is mind blowing, indoors is full of greens like jungle and outdoors is beautiful view over Portomaso promenade. Food is delicious, service is fantastic. One of the best Thai restaurants in the world.

One of the best meals one can have! Absolutely fantastic and worth every penny. Service is to perfection, ambiance is very relaxing with ample room and plenty of space between one table and the other. Lovely starters to choose from, fried foods are nice and dry as if baked and not at all oily and of course Thai. Desserts are... More
