The atmosphere is very nice- loads of plants and nice tables. Food was okay but not the best Thai I've eaten. Somewhat limited choices.

We were staying at the Hilton and called in and it was so good we went back. We tried various cocktails - all very good. The service was good and the food very tasty - we asked for them to make it hotter for us and they obliged!

I really loved the place. It is a really beautiful restaurant. The service is excellent. The food is delicious. Women are complemented with flowers when presenting the bill. That is really nice.

Good atmosphere excellent decor. Extensive great Thai menu. Service was v attentive without being obtrusive. All the meals were excellent. Some confusion about what wine was in stock and slow to come back with the bill. But overall excellent food, restaurant and service.

One evening we decided to try Thai and went down from the Executive lounge to the Blue Elephant. We hadn't thought to book as it was a bit of an impulse eating decision. We got there around 7:10 pm. Not booking was clearly an instant baddie and I thought "We'd better go now before she has us thrown out". Then... More

Dining at Blue Elephant was a great experience. From the time you enter the restaurant up till your departure you are constantly looked after from the formidable staff. The food is in a class of its own. For sure we'll be back for another wonderful meal.

My Mum and I had a fantastic meal at the restaurant, from the moment we arrived until leaving the staff were so attentive. We shared one of their banquet meals that was so substantial we had to have a take away bag. Each dish was delicious and they were happy to make changes for me as a non meat eater.... More
