Excellent food, service and ambiance. The food is high quality not the usual junk you get locally. Quality rice is a way to judge the food quality. Worth a visit.

I've been to other Blue Elephant locations around the world and this one compared very well. The food was great, the service was friendly and the location also has cooking classes and a nice plot of land.

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.
