Found this gem by literally following our noses and it was sooo good. We hadn't booked but they found us a table. Lovely food and attentive staff in a lovely setting. Parnell is lovely and so close to Vector Arena for concerts. Would recommend this place, the food was so clean tasting and fragrant. I had the hot ribs and they were HOT but still had a lovely lemon grass and chilli taste. My partner had the crispy pork and I'm not exaggerating when I say it was the tastiest dish I'd ever had. If you're in Parnell find this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

Can't say enough good things about the food quality........it was top notch, excellent, tasty, well presented, aromatic, fresh, zingy, wonderful AND genuinely Thai.
Unfortunately the waitresses let the overall experience down with their 'attitude', lack of knowledge on the food and general inattentiveness.
Worth going just for the food - yummy!

Situated in a cosy courtyard down a little alleyway in Parnell, very quaint location, that gave this restaurant a lot of its charm. Small and intimate, fantastic service, food was very good, beautifully presented, fresh and good sized portions. We will definitely return when in Auckland again!!

Blue elephant is a must go. I had red panang curry and it was beautiful! It was not to spicey and there was heaps of it. There were four of us and no one of us had a negitive comment! So if your looking for a thai reaturant go to the blue elephant!
