If you visit Malta you must eat at the Blue Elephant because if you like Thai food you will not get better outside of Thailand. The ambience of the place is amazing with a "river" of koi carp swimming around which kept our grandson amused. Brilliant food and great service. Loved the Phad Thai.

Lovely restaurant and great location and a very romantic setting but food somewhat bland, disappointed in the starters and the main course was just like an ordinary Thai restaurant on the corner, so not special

Compared to other Maltese restaurants, this is expensive and the quality is not that much above some other places we ate. The staff are very friendly and attentive, sometimes overly so (I personally can't stand when someone drapes a napkin across my lap - I'm an adult, I can do it myself). The food is nice - fairly standard Thai... More

I have recently attended the wedding of two close and long time friends of mine - Tamara and Sandro Chahid, whose Wedding took place in the lavish surroundings of the Blue Elephant suit (Bar and Restaurant including outdoors next to the pool where the Ceremony took place with an eye catching Fireworks display at the conclusion of the Ceremony).

Possibly the most important achievement for any restaurant is consistency and if one uses this as a measure for this restaurants continued success, The Blue Elephant scores highly. The quality of the food and the level of service have always been and remain, top notch. On out last visit however, the temperature inside the restaurant was initially fine but suddenly... More

The food was not authentic Thai food at all, service was ok but the food doesn't taste good. Meat dish( beef and chicken) taste like rubble, very tough and bland, even the simple pad Thai doesn't taste right. Very touristy place, not recommdate at all.

Thank lkorska
