This restaurant is an old colonial building. It is beautifully decorated inside. The dining areas are clean and tables are well spaced. This is the place to dine if you're looking for an upscale Thai cuisine. All our dishes were delicious and artfully presented. They offer a good selection of wines as well as house made cocktails. Service was outstanding-... More

We did not have a reservation, but were seated within 5 minutes, and had a beautiful meal. In addition, our server Dik, caught on to the birthday event, and surprised... More

We decided to have a birthday dinner here. The staff contributed to the surprise by bringing in a birthday dessert, along with a few members singing "Happy Birthday" and one playing the guitar. On our way out, they gave us a little gift and an orchid each. The food was good as well, but we favoured their service more.

We chose to have one of the tasting menus and we enjoyed it for sure ( me more than my husband, who didn't think the food was so great). Expensive, though, and the service felt impersonal, they clearly are turning over the tables quickly. Glad to have gone once, probably wouldn't do it again.

Walking through the door, you will be greeted with a whole new world. Although my pictures were all modified so you can see better, Blue Elephant is in fact only lightened up with candles, and this brings us an entire new atmostphere.

Lovely little gem of a building hidden between the giant skyline of Bangkok, that was all that blew me away!! The food was average and the waiters were friendly just not very attentive. We had to wait a while for our order of drinks to be taken and then a further wait for the food. The restaurant is a great... More

Staying in Sathorn

Neighbourhood Profile
Sathorn
Sathorn is Bangkok’s central business district, but here you’ll find much more than international banks and suited-up office workers. Take a stroll along the small alleys between the skyscrapers and you’ll find yourself among Bangkokians living life at a much slower pace. Feast on fantastic Thai food which you can find in the town-house restaurants, office food courts and sidewalk food stalls spread all over the area, especially around St. Louis Hospital. A visit to Sathorn is not complete without a drink at one of the glitzy sky bars perched atop its skyscrapers.
