Gorgeous building, and great food. Comparable to many Thai restaurants. Cheaper venues in the town had comparable food. Part of a famous chain so expected more. Service was lacking..

“Expensive” and worth every bhat! (You get way more than you pay for!) We had scallops as an appetizer (to die for!) and a mix of main dishes including 5 spice duck in tamarind sauce, chicken biryani, and two other dishes, all scrumptious! Coconut ice cream for dessert (wish I had room for the ginger creme brûlée as well!) Service was spot on with good recommendations and the house is beautiful! Will go back next time we’re in Thailand!read more

Beautiful place and an amazing menu, really high quality food and a lovely fine dining experience.The grounds are grand and beautiful, and the staff are so friendly and accommodating. You can dress casually or dress up. It feels like a dress up place to me but some people did go in jeans and t-shirt.

A fine dining restaurant located in a heritage building. Service is very personal and detailed. The Thai food is meticulously prepared and authentic. A place for a memorable evening.

What an experience

What an experience – the mix of fruit, veg and seafood was amazing and having someone on hand to talk us through it was invaluable! Sampling, smelling, tasting – it was all wonderful and we did not want to leave. Then to the cooking – it was so informative. The personal training allowed us to take our time, ensuring we got the flavors just right. The mix of courses was great – duck curry, soup, fish & a salad. Wonderful setting, great people and a building full of history and heritage. With all the tasting I could not stomach any more food at the end. I do very little cooking at home but did not feel out of my depth – a really nice pace to the course and the resulting food was top class. I would recommend this for all standards, with some authentic food to buy in the shop as well. We will be back!

Exceeded expectations

My gal pal and I just wrapped up a half day cooking course at The Blue Elephant.
The instruction was great, and you eat your “homework” in the restaurant at the end of the class. The staff here are kind and patient. The entire vibe in the house is relaxed, so just go and enjoy yourself.

A MUST!

It was a lot of fun with our group of 5 students. We went to this cooking school after dining at the restaurant the day before. We cooked 4 dishes in total and it was fabulous. We then had the pleasure of sitting in the restaurant and eating our own dishes. I must say, I think we are pretty good cooks now. Lol

Wonderful experience!

The environment is beautiful, the class is well organized, the food is delicious and challenging without being overwhelming at all (I basically can’t cook but managed to follow without any trouble). This is a really really wonderful experience!

Professional and organized!

Professional and organized – both chefs were professional and open to answering all of our questions and had all of the ingredients prepared for us to use during the class. The course is a great setting and building for the course

Great service

We were a group of 10 attending the cooking school as a social activity during a conference and had the best time. The restaurant food was delicious – our attempts not so good but so much fun. The class went for a couple of hours then we had dinner in one of their formal larger rooms where we also presented with our certificates. There is an art in achieving that subtle balance of flavors which none of us mastered on the night.
