Our cab driver suggested this place for our anniversary dinner. The place was gorgeous with such nice ambience and the food mouth watering. Some nice wine selection and go for chef recommendation and your dinner is set.

First of all the restaurant is set in a beautiful colonial building in Phuket town. It's worth seeing. They have a bar were you can go and just have a drink. There is a shop where you can buy blue elephant products and the restaurant. The food tastes very nice, but not outrageously good for the price.

You walk in past the bar where they offered a small drink (juice) to start. to walk into the restaurant, you have to walk through their store first. Which I thought was a bit strange but since it is also a cooking school for tourists, I get it.... More

I read the reviews for Blue Elephant, was especially impressed that we could get gluten free meals there. As a gluten free person, that's what's the most important thing. There were 5 of us, so we ordered like 10 things to share. I asked the waitress what's gluten free, she said just tell her what we would like, and they... More

Dear sir, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Let us first apologies if the executive team member did not react in time for your order as I'm sure this could have been avoided. I am a little confused though....as here is a genuine understanding of gluten free for soybeans. Pure soybeans do not have gluten in... More

My wife had the lamb which was to kill for, I had the spareribs which I expected more from. The service was great, friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Would recommend this to anyone who is planning a special evening.

We went there for dinner the food was nice. Not amazing and the staff were friendly but not terribly good at their job.
