Great experience

Fabulous restaurant with great decor! Must book as it gets very busy. We had the vegetarian set meal for 2. Loads of food, beautifully presented and very tasty. Menu only listed food as vegetarian rather than vegan so would need to check. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Meal for 2 with non-alcoholic drinks came to just less than €100, so not a cheap night, but was a lovely evening!

Pros: Fab decor, Lovely food

Cons: Quite pricey , Need to book

Not good food or value

The place is very nice,
But food was disappointing and very pricey. I will not recommend this restaurant to my friends , both vegan and non vegans where disappointed from the food specialy considered paying 50/60 euros each, you would expect better gourmet food.

Great food and atmosphere!

This restaurant is located inside the Hilton Hotel and has a quite fancy vibe. It's a bit more expensive but still affordable and the interior is amazing with so many plants and decoration. The food was really delicious. I can recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner out!

Lovely restaurant

Really enjoyed our meal here. The restaurant itself is pretty amazing with beautiful decor. There is a vegetarian menu on which everything was vegan or could be made vegan. Prices were reasonable and staff were freindly. Worth booking if you want to go as its quite popular. A lovely fine dining experience.

A Must Visit

The Blue Elephant is an amazing dining experience. The quality of the food is unbelievable, there are plenty of vegan options, and the chef even came out to us to personally tell us he could make whatever we wanted. The service and atmosphere also went far beyond expectations, I’ll be thinking about this place for a long time. Booking is essential as this place is in very high demand!

Ps. We had the tofu and tempura veg to start, then the sweet & sour and the curry with fried rice, all incredible. Two starters, two mains, shared rice and a large bottle of water all came to about €25 per person. Well worth it for the whole experience.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Amazing service , Brilliant atmosphere

So much choice

Lots of options, I would highly recommend the veggie fried rice, and the cocktails were great too. Not the best Thai I’ve ever had but still pretty good.

The best service, the best staff, amazing food, far too much for us to finish

Vegans need not worry there is plenty available and staff have a great understanding of vegan requirements and are happy to help or make recommendations. So unbelievably friendly too. Incredible decor. It did take a little while to be seated so I would book if I was going again.

Pros: Plenty of vegan options, The loveliest staff

Not good

None of the dishes tasted like authentic thai food, they use silken tofu instead of firm tofu which is a mistake, curry was not great neither were the tom kha jay, the mango salad or the tofu starter. Apparently the food used to be good before.

Pros: Nice atmosphere in the restaurant

Cons: Non authentic thai, None of the dishes were great, Silken tofu instead of firm tofu did not work

Fancy and delicious

Oh my oh my oh my! This place! This is the place to go for a fancy dinner. The atmosphere is so great! All the plants, and the river in the middle of the restaurant, and the waterfall! And the food is absolutely delicious. Vegan options clearly marked. Really great.

Craving the tofu

Great vegetarian menu with many vegan or easily made vegan. Crisps they bring before the meal are not vegan as they use dairy in the pre-made powder.

Great, spicy options - they prepped the tofu perfectly. So incredible. Tofu appetizer, spring rolls and curry was all very good, too. Good wine list.
