Blue Elephant is an authentic Thai restaurant which only opens in some countries and Indonesia is one of them. I've been to this restaurant for a few times and all I can say they serve authentic Thai foods like no other Thai restaurants. It's not cheap but definitely worth it!

While food was great i have to point out the poor air conditioning as we all were sweating profusely. After lunch we had ordered cappucino and Thai iced tea which were horrible!!!! When i told the waitress re the horrible cappucino, she "advised" me to add sugar to the cappuccino. What an expert advice. Resto owner, please taste the coffee.... More

Having lived in Thailand for a while, I do appreciate real thai food with original taste, not the softened version for western tourists. I knew this brand from a recent visit to London and I did not get disappointed. At Blue Elephant you'll find Royal Thai Cuisine, serving the best of delicious Thai food in an original ambiance. Loved the... More

This establishment to my knowledge is supposedly to be very known for it's best Thai Cuisine... I ordered 3 simple dishes. The fish cake that's so rubbery and the sauce was plain sweet. The green curry with a thick taste of instant coconut milk not fresh... The morning glory well over cooked and a stench that it seems the ingredient... More

We came for an early dinner before an event. No reservations are needed before 6:30pm. We were graciously welcomed and the staff was attentive and professional. We enjoyed all of our food, especially the Mieng Kham. Overall, it was a step down from what we ate in Thailand but it was delicious and we will eat there again.

If you like Thai food a visit to the Blue Elephant is always a treat. I used to be a regular at their London branch back in the days when I lived in the Big Smoke and whenever I come across one of their outlets on my travels I'm always tempted to pop in. On this occasion there was a... More

The decor of the restaurant is fine-dine. Service is excellent. Portion is very small. Being a small eating couple, we took 4 dishes and desserts and walked out still not full. The food quality is good. The dessert platter is very refreshing and great. We found the lighting to be too dark, can't see our food properly. Defeats the purpose... More
