I visited for lunch on a Thursday, very quiet but staff still friendly and attentive. I enjoyed the food which was tasty and authentic. The mansion it is set in is beautiful and worth a look around.

This is one of the several famous Blue Elephant Restaurants in Thailand, England, France, Denmark, Indonesia etc. which has a cooking school teaching Royal Thai Cuisine. We came fro afternoon drinks only, but I believe the food must be equally as good as the building, a Governor's Mansion, and its interior design. This is a MUST SEE when in Phuket... More

We went on an ad hoc visit as we was walking around Phuket old town. If you catch a taxi from the resort they will ask if you want them to wait. Tell them you will have dinner in the Blue Elephant and the taxi will be waiting for you outside. The ambience of the restaurant is very nice. Very... More

We had a really nice family lunch here as a special treat on our holiday. The food was enjoyable and the team that served us - including 2 and 4 year olds! - very helpful and accommodating. The setting was really nice, an oasis in the hectic city, and we enjoyed the ambience. Our favourite dishes were the crab curry... More

I was very disappointed with the Blue Elephant, The food was mediocre, the service was poor and it was very expensive for Thailand. We had much better meals for less than half the price elsewhere during our stay in Phuket. It is a mystery to me h9w this place receives such good reviews on Tripadvisor. We were presented with two... More

Exceptional. Professional. Outstanding hospitality. Top-notch service. These elements, brought together in historic surroundings, ensure the Blue Elephant is a not-to-be-missed dining experience on any discerning diner’s list.

I love this beautiful place, it's a colonial villa with a huge park and inside is a dream. Great proposal for traditional food in a special context. For a special romantic night, for a special event...this place, night time is a dream! Don't miss it!!!!

This is an amazing restaurant. From the second you arrive at the magnificent building to the way staff greet you, it's all excellence. The traditional Thai food is tasty and delicious. It should be on everyone's Phuket "bucket list"! It's not cheap and probably best for an important business meeting or a special occasion.
