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,...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!!!!

Me and my 2 children came here on the 5th August 2016. There used to be one in London but it closed down a couple of years ago. This resturant never disappoints the food and staff we're amazing. Would definitely go back without a doubt.

The Classic Menu is family style Thai vs the Set Menus which are more Western style. I am not sure about high chairs.

Unfortunately we didn't do cooking classes - we were there for an evening meal only. The setting is beautiful and Thai food amazing, you can't go wrong with classes.
