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...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...More

I read the reviews for Blue Elephant, was especially impressed that we could get gluten free meals there. As a gluten free person, that's what's the most important thing. There were 5 of us, so we ordered like 10 things to share. I asked the...More

Two questions! 1) (for the rep) My wife and I are heading to Phuket in February, I've already made reservations for dinner, but am thinking about taking the cooking classes with her as a fun activity. How far in advance should we book to be assured a spot? 2) (for any folks that have done it) How was the cooking class? My wife and I love to cook, but we are by no means pros. We like being around food and markets, we like to see "how it's done" in the kitchen, and I think we'd have fun if given a chance to try our hand with a little professional guidance.

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.
Hello, what is your range of vegan options?

Good morning khun Nick. The Blue Elephant Phuket doesn't require a particular dress code, smart casual would be the most appropriate as it does remain quite a unique Location. 😉
