After spending a whole week doing a cooking course and having lunch in the restaurant, I can say that it has been an unforgettable experience. I recommend this cooking course to everybody, as it is an amazing way to discover the Thai gastronomy through the well-trained instructors the have and concerned by each student. The restaurant highlight the nice ingredients... More

The last night in Bangkok I had the chance to taste the chef tasting menu in the Blue Elefant restaurant with my friend Javi, that he did a course of cooking there, and it was just amazing. For far, the best place to eat in Bangkok and also to learn how to cook thai food. If you want to taste... More

The setting is beautiful and so is the food. The red duck curry was a highlight. The wine list is also very good for Thailand. A bit pricy but totally worth it

It is the most expensive lunch in Bangkok for us. Since the water and tea is expensive with 17% tax. The lunch set is very good, although spicy! The tea pot is elephant shape, funny.

Dear Lovely Guest, Thank you very much for visiting Blue Elephant Bangkok and taking the time to share your experience here. It is true we are not the cheapest Thai restaurant in town and this is truly justified by the fact that we do not compromised on the quality of the products our Chefs use. To mention a few: Free...

My partner took me there to celebrate an anniversary-a stroke of genius. The ambience was superb-colonial, professional and the food was the best meal I had tasted in 3 weeks and I had been to some very good recommended restaurants. The owner was around talking to guests too. Bought some Blue Elephant spices to try my hand at home and... More

My second visit to Blue Elephant was you to my expectations. The opposite end of the spectrum of Thai Street Food Blue Elephant offers Royal Thai food the elegant setting of an 1800s mansion. The food is well prepared and presented, the service good. Come here if you are looking for high quality, traditional Thai food.

Staying in Sathorn

Neighborhood Profile
Sathorn
Sathorn is Bangkok’s central business district, but here you’ll find much more than international banks and suited-up office workers. Take a stroll along the small alleys between the skyscrapers and you’ll find yourself among Bangkokians living life at a much slower pace. Feast on fantastic Thai food which you can find in the town-house restaurants, office food courts and sidewalk food stalls spread all over the area, especially around St. Louis Hospital. A visit to Sathorn is not complete without a drink at one of the glitzy sky bars perched atop its skyscrapers.
