We had a great meal at this restaurant celebrating a family birthday. Everyone loved the shared starters. A nice touch was that they increased the starters to 4 pieces, instead of 3 pieces. The thai curry was delicious and I loved the Pad Thai. We will go back.

The food here is not your typical Thai food restaurant. I love Thai food - its one of me favorite but this is a completely new experience of Thai Cuisine. Beautiful presentation of food, prepared in very good time. The tastes and flavors are incredible, the service is very welcoming, Karen's memory is amazing. The setting is quaint, and the food is incredible value for money. I have been there a number of times taking new friends (its an excuse to go there again).

My partner and I dined here a few months ago- this review is a little late in coming. Blue Elephant delivers very good Thai fusion cuisine in a very nice atmosphere. I suppose I would rate the surroundings (including service, which was very good) higher than the food itself, but would recommend this to anyone who wants a romantic evening out. But it will cost you- I recall gasping a bit when the bill arrived, but the portions were large enough I shrugged and chalked it up to the level of service received. I would definitely go again- I enjoyed the experience very much.

One of the best in Auckland , but not as good as Australian Thai restaurants. Service was good , portions weren't very big. Restaurant is in a location in Parnell, plenty of other restaurants in this location. I had a red curry which was of good quality and a starter of chicken satay.

I ordered the pad thai because I'm a creature of habit and that's what I always order in thai restaurants. But this was several steps above everything I've tasted before. The favors blended perfectly. An almost 100 percent Asian customer clientele should tell you something. Go there!
