Unfortunately I had a very bad experience here. I went online to book a table for my husband's birthday and found that only a 10.30 table was available. I called to check that we would have enough time to complete our meal in a relaxed way and was reassured there would be no problem. At 11.30, whilst we were still having our main course, a waiter arrived at our table asking us to order any more drinks we would like as the bar was closing. At 11.50, the moment we had finished our dessert, all the lights were turned on. To add insult to injury, the waiter who brought our bill told us that we should have come earlier. I was on the point of refusing to pay I was so furious, but I didn't want to make a scene on my husband's birthday. The food is pretty good, but not worth the rude and inconsiderate service.


You may not always get what you paid for in life, and sometimes it's tempting to cut corners and hope. But for those days when only the best will do there's The Blue Elephant at Imperial Wharf. For the evenings where you want to treat yourself of someone special this may possibly be the best place in London to go. Quite frankly if you get taken out on a date here you should probably just go ahead and marry the guy/girl. Honestly, I could write page after page on why The Blue Elephant was the best Thai food we've had outside of Thailand but we'll try to keep it short and sweet so you don't get bored and wander off. Oh, and talking of sweet, don't fill up on the delicious main courses because there are some great desserts (unusual for an Asian cuisine restaurant) waiting at the end of the meal. If you can take the gorgeous-ness overload then order some cocktails instead of the wine, before your meal arrives.

Absolutely wonderful restaurant, excellent service, fantastic food and just brilliantly flamboyant and fun. Incredibly child friendly, the staff could not have been more helpful or kinder to a very boisterous 8 and 4 year old. Could eat the Royal Thai Banquet over and over again. Must commend staff for being very accommodating to the picky eaters in our group. Can't wait to see them in their new venue.
