London Restaurants: Blue Elephant

After checking out Sherlock Holmes (excellent) at Vue cinema in Fulham last week, K treated me to dinner at the lovely Thai restaurant, the Blue Elephant around the corner.

“Sawatdee,” we were greeted at the door where we could leave our coats before walking through a welcome blast of warm air into the main area of the restaurant. There were Thai handicrafts and rustic roodwork, a small bridge we crossed over a pond full of huge koi fish. We were seated next to the fish pond and the sound of a trickling fountain with lush green plants trailing down the walls. (In case you’re interested, they feed the fish most days around 6pm.)

It was pretty, relaxing, with friendly professional staff and, most importantly, excellent food. Pricey drinks, but the main courses were only an average of about £15. Their website has a lot of information on main dishes (I had tamarind duck and royal fried rice; K ordered crispy lemongrass chicken and morning glory) and more about the restaurant itself. Check out their classic menu and the rest of the site for more details.

Definitely worth a visit or two for the whole experience.

  1. I have fond memories of this place…had my ninth birthday day twenty some odd years ago there and I have loved it ever since! The flowing rivers beneath your feet are magical!
