I've been to Phuket 20 or 30 times but rarely venture into Old Phuket Town. Went last year to explore and was very pleasantly surprised by the town in general and this restaurant in particular. The grounds and building are wonderful and the food is excellent. Staff was wonderful too. Recommend you dress up a bit to fit into the... More

We went to Blue Elephant on the first night of our stay in Phuket. Staying in SE Asia all my life, i have had plenty of Thai food but after that night, my dining experience at Blue Elephant ranks as one of my favorites. The colonial house that it is located in and the decoration is nice and many tourist... More

Elegant setting in former Governor's Mansion. Blend of spices gives each dish it's distinctive and delightful taste. A good variety of dishes to choose from or choose one of two set dinners to sample it's delicious cuisine. A wonderful and memorable place to entertain your guests.

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.
