Square Meal Review of Blue Elephant ?

Its days as a Disneyland of ornamental ponds, Koi carp and miniature rainforests are history now the Blue Elephant has moved to Imperial Wharf, though readers don’t seem bothered. The current riverside location opts for understated grandeur, with ornate dark-wood panels and hanging pot plants. Navigating the menu can be tricky, but pick wisely and you could be in for ‘the best cooking outside of Thailand’, according to one fan. Good calls include mieng kham (fresh betel leaves filled with roasted peanuts, coconut, spices, dried shrimp and palm sugar), stir-fried black prawns topped with lemongrass, and desserts such as creamy coconut flan. Cocktails are as bright and tropical as Patong Beach.

  1. Blue Elephant is one of London’s most iconic Thai restaurants. It opened its doors over 25 years ago on Fulham Broadway but moved to Imperial Wharf in January 2012. The new space is luxurious and beautifully glamorous and was refurbished based on ‘Saran Rom’ Palace in Bangkok, previously the seat of Thailand’s Minister of Foreign Affairs. Décor aside, another strong selling point is that the restaurant is positioned on The Thames, offering those who sit outside on a nice sunny day wonderful views of the river. As an extension to the Blue Elephant restaurant, the Imperial Wharf location also runs a newly created Thai cookery school...
