Blue Elephant Royal Thai Cuisine

Phuket Town, Phuket Town & Central

The Blue Elephant, Phuket, is housed in an impressive 100-year-old Sino-Portuguese mansion that has been lovingly restored to its former glory. The building is set in large grounds on the corner of Krabi and Satun Road in the Old Phuket Town area.

Every dish is prepared by their renowned chef who uses only the freshest and finest ingredients according to Royal Thai culinary tradition. The menu is inventive and surprising while service is provided by courteous and attentive staff.

For pre or after dinner drinks there is a trendy, modern bar that offers a contrast to the classic colonial style of the indoor and outdoor dining areas.

The restaurant is an excellent venue for events with dedicated function rooms on the upper floor and a vast lawn for large outdoor events and parties.

For those that want to learn about and try their hand at Thai cooking, the onsite Blue Elephant Cooking School provides a wide range of courses with first class facilities and training for all skill sets.

  1. Housed in an exquisite Sino-Portuguese mansion in the heart of Phuket Town, the Blue Elephant has without doubt the grandest setting of any restaurant in Phuket. The interior has been lovingly restored to retain the building’s old-world charm, making it the perfect place for a special intimate meal or entertaining friends. The Blue Elephant restaurant is located on the corner of Krabi and Satun roads, just past the Phuket Thai Hua Musuem. Look out for the narrow road entrance as its quite easy to miss and there isn’t a large sign.


  2. It is a really beautiful place! I love the building style. I been here with my boss and her farang friend. Foods are very nice presented but I think taste is so so for Thai people like me. However, it is worth experience as I think I will not have many chance to come here. I know that it is expensive but I must say that it is very special place. You must try ;-)

  3. I had a great visit with my teammate a couple months ago. I had a Thai set start with soup in a short glass. I was impress. The set menu is too much we very full but their taste are all great as well. Everyone thought that we could not finish the sweet, but we all can finish them all. The decoration is fantastic and outstanding by using the original house as a restaurant, still the glass door seem to be a bit dangerous for children.

  4. Our bill here came to about 1600 baht per person so be advised this is not street food Thai food. Very upscale and very good. The lamb curry was exquisite.

  7. Get there early to have a drink in the trendy bar before dining in a fine classic room, they also have a terrace area. Not that easy to find, but our tuk tuk driver knew where it was.

  8. A great experience and ambience. Very colonial style, beautiful building.

    Food was amazing and presentation first class.

    Expensive and difficult to find (taxi driver tried to take us somewhere else).

    Would I go again? Yes, for special occasion but its not a cheap night out!

  9. Very upscale but not snobbish or expensive. This place is beautiful with food to match. Probably the best Thai food on the island.

  10. For anything and everything Thai on a grand scale. The prettiest setting where it obvious the owner spent plenty of time and money to recreate a royal experience in the town of Phuket.
    We had visited the London site but this is the real deal. We plan to be back. Thank you for a memorable dining experience!
