A stunningly converted Sino-Portugese mansion house, sympathetically converted into a restaurant. The food is utterly fantastic as is the service. Yes it is fairly expensive, but for that once in a while splurge it is definitely a memorable experience.

The blue elephant in Bangkok was excellent. We expected the same service and were a bit disappointed. Food was good however

We visited this restaurant on our recent trip to Phuket. It was a bit of a jaunt from our hotel but well worth the effort.

Everything we ordered, from the beef to the chicken, was cooked to perfection. The service was professional and outstanding.

This is probably one of the best Thai food restaurants I have eaten at. Ever.

The restaurant is housed in an old colonial style sprawling building, which I believe was the mayor's residence.

If you are in Phuket, this place is a "must visit".

Having been a big fan if the London Blue Elephant (since the mid 90s) I was curious to see how a Thai restaurant chain with origins in Brussels would stack up against the best back in Thailand. Happy to report it's fabulous!

The setting is charming in a renovated old colonial home... The bar as you walk in is modern and the drinks excellent...

The dining room is great and the service friendly to the point of enthusiastic albeit not flawless...

The food was amazing! Innovative and delicious, Thai with a nod towards its origins in the west.

Beware the Thai chill lurking in the papaya salad. Almost took my head off - had to order another delicious fruity cocktail to bring sensation back to the inside of my mouth.

This was a excellent reccommendation from the General Manager of our resort (thanks again Janet). And yes it was pricey for Thai standards, but it was simply excellent and we will definitely be back next time in Phuket town...
