One of Blue Elephant Thai Restaurant's Favourite Reviews What's This?
For a place not to far away from the main road I found The Blue Elephant very charming and quiet. A wonderful escape.
The atmosphere was not in any way let down by the cuisine. We ate the Fresh spring roles and the Aroy Dee Thai Herb Wraps for our entrees. It has to be said that our wonderfully charming & witty waitress Shelley really made our night that little bit extra special. She was very willing to tell us how to eat the Aroy dee Thai wraps, what was in each dish and was happy to cater to all our requests. My partner loves spice, I don’t take it too well, this is the first time any restaurant has offered fresh chilli on the side so we can both enjoy the dishes to our own tastes.
The fresh spring rolls were so delicious with the gorgeous mint really cleansing the palate whilst the Aroy dee Thai herb wraps were fun to eat and was a real burst of flavour. It all tasted so incredibly fresh.
The word to describe our mains is divine. We had the crispy pork dish and duck with cashews. The sauce for the duck was so incredibly tasty, you really could pick up the delicate flavours and the fresh ingredients were just beautiful. The pork actually smelt so good the couple at the table next to us actually asked what the dish was so they could order the same thing,
Having a Thai step mother and my partner spending a few months in Thailand i would like to think we were good judges of thai food. So don’t take this review lightly- The Blue Elephant deserves 5 stars +.
All in all with the romantic atmosphere, presentable traditionally dressed waitresses with amazing customer services and to topMore it off absolutely delicious food -you’d be silly not to give The Blue Elephant a try. I was very impressed and I will definitely be back again.
I’ll be back
-Love the menu which had some unique offerings, in particular the herb parcels which were just divine and just completely different to what we’ve ever had in a thai restaurant.
-Food was well prepared but also beautifully presented, spiced just right and delicious
-The location was quaint, surrounded my greenery in the heart of Parnell.
-The actual place was charming, tastefully decorated with music appropriate to its theme
-The hostess was warm and ensured we were happy and comfortable.
-Fully recommend for both couples and small groups as it was a lovely, intimate setting.
I can write pages here about their high quality service and delicious food but it must try it. I only had the same feeling at Carinthia that I’m the most honoured GUEST here and the food and the staff is for my satisfaction.

I travel from West Auckland even for takeaways. A++++
The menu is exciting to read, and our host explained all the dishes in such a friendly manner that we felt as though we were dining and an old favourite. We had the Mixed Entree which was superb, followed by Massamam Lamb Curry and Blue Elephant Spicy Crispy Pork.
The meals were generous and the flavours were magical. The Crispy Pork unlike anything I have ever tasted before.
The service is first class and friendly; also probably the cleanest restaraunt I have ever eaten in (look at the cutlery, glassware and furnishings!)
Our only regret was we couldn’t try the ‘Chubby Young Blue Elephant’ or any of the other fabulous dishes on offer.
P.S. beware of the extMorera hot chilli king prawns ordered by another table .. the fumes even had Wayne coughing!!!
highly highly recommend
The flavour was just incredible, and the sticky rice!! since we came back from Asia 2 year ago we haven´t been able to find places that serve this kind of northen east Thai style. JUST GREAT!
the service and the atmosphere was fantastic.
Thanks so much for everything! we´ll be coming back certainly!
By the way, the entrance to the restaurant and the portions are huge and well balanced!… maybe the people from the review by Orly was really oversized…;P
We thought the way they treated customers was warm and equally friendly to anyone. The ambience was perfect too! Although we’ve been to many Thai restaurants, the experience at the Blue Elephant was so far the best. Definitely we would go back again! Thanks to you all.
