Reservations highly suggested. The food is simply the best, the presentation is fantastic, but the service is what pulls it all together. Simply the best staff with a team concept which ensures the best dining experience for each and every customer. They also have a Thai cooking school at this location. You will not be disappointed.

Just driving around old Phuket town and stumbled on this place through TripAdvisor. I had panang tofu and my girlfriend had black pepper prawns. Both were great. We also split pomelo salad which is our new favorite - the best one so far was here. Really cool old plantation house. Just a great lunch!

Great service and guest friendly staff. The mansion looks so gorgeous at night. Food always tastes wonderful and the servers are well educated. I was there in December 2016 and went back in March. :) Tried out different dishes and satisfied. Keep up the good work and see you next time. 👍🏻

Good local thai foods with good staff service. There were Thai traditional dance performed right before dinner time. Good and luxarious ambience but the taste was not as good as what I expected. The foods are some costly considering the prices.

This restaurant was recommended to us, as we were anxious to try some Thai food. We were not disappointed. Visiting the house was lovely in itself, but the food was tremendous. It was a bit pricey, but we knew this to begin with.

We were trying to see the place next door which was an old Chinese mansion, it was closed to the public due to filming occurring. We came here for a coffee and because it was also an old mansion. Although we stood around for 15 minutes or so and another couple were being served, no one approached or indicated any... More

Took my wife of 37 years to the Blue Elephant for our anniversary dinner and was not disappointed. The meal was sensational. Not big portions but plenty to eat. A real traditional taste of Thailand. Highly recommend for a special occasion.

I took my wife (and dad/dad's girlfriend) to the Blue Elephant for her birthday, and don't regret a thing. The meal, while expensive for Thailand, was amazing. We ordered the lunch course for Friday, and it was a lot of food. Not only that, but everyone had at least one alcoholic drink, and my dad's girlfriend (who is a vegetarian)... More

This restaurant is set in an incredible stately building in its own grounds. Although in a higher than average price bracket it is worth the visit. The interior is beautiful and the food delicious. Two of our friends prefer non-spicy food and choose ribs in organic honey which were outstanding. The roasted duck curry and fish curry were also perfect.... More
