Once you get over the highly exotic decor and surroundings, everything is pretty much standard tourist fare. Over priced, food is good but nothing extraordinary; very little advice on the menu or portions; service that is satisfactory but nothing special and wine that is just okay. You won't go away from here unhappy but it lacks any soul.

Love the food, atmosphere and dinner. Been to 5 Blue Elephant's around the world and always have a good time. Visited for my young son's birthday - lovely chocolate cake and candle surprise to end the meal.

Great service from the very start, the menu is well laid out, we were given an option for a set menu. The music went very well with the sound of falling water in the background and the lighting was perfect. The food was so full of flavour that each mouthful was an experience. The portions were good and the presentation... More

Well where do you start, the setting and ambiance we're very relaxing. The staff very friendly, the choice on menu was wide and the quality of food we had was tops. Blue elephant platter & prawn curry, not the cheapest but quality rarely comes cheap, suggest you give it a go!
