Food was absolutely delicious. It is pricey for sure but I had no regrets after that fantastic meal that left me full for the whole day. We had the lamb massaman curry and the 5 spiced duck as well as the spring rolls. I would say that you could probably find a better alcoholic drink elsewhere.

We had heard so much about the Blue Elephant that we made it a point to visit the restaurant within our short two day trip in Bangkok. We ordered our three courses and before we knew it they brought our SOUP STARTER AND MAIN COURSE all TOGETHER. who ever serves all the courses together if not asked for. Also, we would like to make a point that no manager came to our table to ask us how our experience was or if we even enjoyed the food. Neither did any of the other staff. The food was good but our overall experience was not all that great and sort out being a Michelin Star restaurant.read more

Overrated for price:quality. The food is fine but nothing special for the price. Also an inexplicably long wait (45min) for having multiple open tables. Ambiance is pretty. Would not return. Far better street food and less pricey restaurant options in Bangkok!

This restaurant serves one of the better flavoured Thai food here in Bangkok. The chef is especially famous for her heritage in the country, and has been seen cooking for numerous celebrities and politicians, which are all hung on the walls of the place. They have a cooking school as well, if in case you're interested to learn how to whip up some Thai dishes. Make sure you call to make a reservation if you're coming for lunch or dinner! They get really packed and mostly takes only reservations.read more

Absolutely gorgeous food. We were in Bangkok for 5 nights, different restaurant every night, and this was our favourite by far. The staff and service is great. They offer the men pants if they are wearing shorts - as there's a dress code. The prices are more on the expensive side - between 300 and 800 baht per dish. But if you can afford it, I'd say it's worth it. Very nice restaurant!read more

Affordable !

The class is very affordable and comes with goodies: Blue elephant apron, recipes, tote.
There is a certificate “ceremony” at the end of class and then you walk down and enjoy all of the food you make. They have the whole table set with all of your food at your “section”. The highlight of our time in Bangkok!

Friendly Staff and Amazing Food

I was able to attend one of their cooking classes during our recent trip to Bangkok. Online registration was easy and so was finding the venue. A short trip to the market was included as part of the morning class. The chef who accompanied us shared with us tips on how to choose ingredients that would make a difference in cooking Thai dishes. It was interesting to learn how the changing season can affect the taste and quality of the ingredients. Lunch was enjoyed amid shared stories with new acquaintances.

A sneak peek into Thai cooking

Very interesting market tour and cooking class. The instructor was very friendly, young, vibrant and knowledgeable! It certainly was a fun and fruitful experience. Class sizes apparently can vary from 1 to 30 people.
P.S. I learned that the recipes are not the same for the morning and afternoon class. I would highly recommend for one to enroll in a whole day class. The chef instructors have a good command of the English language, something that would sit well with tourists.

Best cooking class EVER

We had a later afternoon class which followed by dinner. There are people in there helping you along the way and everything is out and ready for you to go. The chefs are knowledgeable and funny! The results were surprisingly good!

Excellent + educational cooking class!

it was a good experience. If you love cooking from scratch using all fresh ingredients, take this class and learn cooking the Thai way.

Very informative

We did the morning class, which made a trip to the local markets to pick up some of the ingredients for the dishes we’d be making. It’s very informative and really liked seeing the preparation of curry pastes. After the market we headed back to class, we sampled the various fruits and other Thai dessert goodies we had picked up from the market. The class we started in a classroom with a cooking demonstration and ingredients explanation by the Chefs. The staff was attentive and helpful. Overall if you’re a foodie and aspiring chef (even if you’re not) this is a great experience with a fun staff and the food is delicious (as long as you make it so! ;))

I especially enjoyed eating our work in the restaurant afterward rather than in the studio after each preparation as some other cooking classes do. Will definitively come back next time I am in BKK!

A fabulous experience

My girlfriend and I, we did a morning class with a market tour. At first, we were concerned, as it looked like quite a few people were to be in our class. We were not sure how the experience would be – if there would be enough cooking stations, etc. We started with a market tour, Chef gave us an awesome rundown of each ingredient, explained the differences in the basil used, showed us an immense about the various and all with hilarious wit and fun attitude! When back at the Blue Elephant for began the class. It was great – making red curry paste and a fish souffle (Thai HOT!). It is a fabulous experience to learn about Thai cuisine.
