Excellent, amazing, beautiful. We go there on special occasions and it never disappoints. The food is perfect and the décor is beautiful, when you go in the restaurant you feel like you're in Asia.

We enjoy Thai food and always search for places where ever we travel. The restaurant has a very well done layout that provides a relaxing and exotic atmosphere, ask to be seated by the pond for a more intimate dinner. The menu is extensive with lots of good choices. The service was excellent, the staff attentive and efficient.

It was our last night in Malta and wanted to treat ourselves for dinner so we chose Blue Elephant in the Hilton, thinking that it must be good since it was located in the Hilton. We ordered the steamed seabass, chicken cooked in red curry paste with long beans, and a mixed vegetables stir fry. The seabass, though tasty, was... More

Visited this wonderful restaurant whilst in Malta as me and my partner fancied something other than pasta or pizza. This Asian cuisine is to die for, we had the Royal banquet for two and it was a brilliant idea from the attentive waiter. Surroundings are gorgeous and authentic. We thoroughly enjoyed every dish that came to the table, thanks so... More

The Thai experience begins as you walk through the door: exotic plants, ornate buildings, a waterfall and pool full of golden carp create a special atmosphere and the sense of being in that striking country. A warm “sawadee” enhances the welcome – and a Mai Tai helps to set an appropriate tone. The menu is extensive, fascinating and authentic –... More
