This is an exceptionally good Tai food. We indulged in their special New Years Eve banquet which was wonderful, if a little overpowering - so much food that, unusually we could not do it justice. But every dish was a delight - pretty expensive but well worth it,

The food was OK, so certainly not bad, but it's not that we were overwelmed. So just OK, nothing more. We had the feeling we were rushed. We were still drinking our aperitives when they already came to taste the wine and poured wine. Also our starter came so fast. The pace for the dinner was just too fast. We... More

My wife and I came here for our anniversary. We picked it having stumbled across it by chance a couple of nights earlier and having been very taken by the ambience. Lovely water features and plants.

The entrance already hints at a quality place. It's a huge place with separate rooms and nice interior design. I don't like heavy menus, but this one was definitely appetizing. The service and the taste are above the standards. Get ready to be spoiled.

The Blue Elephant is contained withing the Hilton Malta hotel easily accessible by a lift from the hotel's reception. As soon as we arrived, we were made welcomed in a true Thai fashion. I will visit there again when in Malta.

The food was excellent especially for those who loves Thai food, and the staff where friendly and very polite. The only issue we found was that some drinks are overrated for example we had to pay €15 for 3 pint cokes. But beside that, everything was amazing 🐘

I love Thai food and this restaurant did not disappoint. The Tom Yam Koong and Chiang Mai soups were absolutely delicious. The main courses were all really good as well. We had a great red wine which complimented the meal really well. The service was great too, the ladies were very kind. I would recommend!

Thank diana4getit
