One of the most memorable dining experiences I've ever had anywhere in the world. The food was well above average thai food. The staff were lovely and very professional. The mansion is beautifully restored and magnificently lit at night. Congratulations to Blue Elephant for keeping...More

The restaurant has a beautiful setting and is very well appointed but if you don't want chilly hot food the choices are limited. The cuisine although above average to good is unnecessarily expensive particularly if you don't like the 'be light' menu which has some...More

Two questions! 1) (for the rep) My wife and I are heading to Phuket in February, I've already made reservations for dinner, but am thinking about taking the cooking classes with her as a fun activity. How far in advance should we book to be assured a spot? 2) (for any folks that have done it) How was the cooking class? My wife and I love to cook, but we are by no means pros. We like being around food and markets, we like to see "how it's done" in the kitchen, and I think we'd have fun if given a chance to try our hand with a little professional guidance.

Unfortunately we didn't do cooking classes - we were there for an evening meal only. The setting is beautiful and Thai food amazing, you can't go wrong with classes.
Hello, what is your range of vegan options?

Good morning khun Nick. The Blue Elephant Phuket doesn't require a particular dress code, smart casual would be the most appropriate as it does remain quite a unique Location. 😉
