This was one of my best brunch experiances. Ever since I watched Bitter Moon I was wondering if that place from their first date still exists somewhere in Paris. And it does!! And it havent even change much! It was absolutely amazing. The food was deliscoius too. But I'm never very picky with Thai food. I loved the open bar... More

Slow service. First course of mixed starters was cold Chaotic & somewhat indifferent service had to ask for drinks orders to be taken several times in the end we gave up. Disappointing overall

A real nice restaurant if you love Thai food. Royally delicious! A Great place to have dinner with your loved one. ( Don't forget to reserve.) You will appreciate the ambience too. You will certainly enjoy their super Sunday brunch. Even if it seems costly, the price is definitely worth it. Eat as much as you can. A great treat... More

I been there for dinner and enjoyed the amazing atmosphere of the restaurant I lived 5 years in Bangkok and married to a Thai so that I consider myself to know how the food should be done to call it Thai food Surely the food is adjusted to European taste but still keeps the Thai flavour I was a little...

Overall disapointing! 6 persons on a square table means half have too little space. We all took menu's for the sake of ease but quality was disappointing : big mussels but not tasteful. 4 starters and 4 mains served together but all dishes remained half full ..... Brussels was much better!

The atmosphere is very nice, quite exotic, and the quality of food is very good. To improve : kindness!!! And perhaps portions are a bit too little. Everything is good but desserts, but we must admit that it s not in their tradition.

The franchise Blue Elephant should have a serious close look at this restaurant. To start: Sawadee anyone ? It is the first full page in the menu about a warm welcome. Just wishful thinking as the greetings were non existant from 3 staff member. Food: where did the cook get lost on the globe ? We were not in Thailand... More

We've been fans of Blue Elephant since it first opened in Brussels over 30 years ago. It has since expanded to 9 locations around the world. In fact it's turned into a franchise with most of the downsides associated with restaurants of this nature. We had lunch in the Paris restaurant today. Starters and main meals were poor, close to...

Strange scene rue de la Roquette on a VD's evening a few years ago : a long queue of couples waiting to come in Blue Elephant. All having pre-booked, smiling, very diverse. It was our first time in this restaurant. First we saw the amazing tropical garden. We sat under a canopy among palm trees, rocks, bamboo, waterfall, a small... More
