The chefs here have well balanced palates. The menu is uncluttered reinforcing the freshness of their ingredients. I ordered a few things to sample: satay, spring rolls, rice, green curry and Phad Thai. The food remains authentic to Thailand and unpolluted by western influences (eg. Excessive sauce, too sweet/salty).

As a nice surprise, the side salads that came with the starters were extremely good showing off knife skills and flavouring. Will definitely return to try a salad next time given how well this compared to the usual garnish of dry cabbage other places might use.

Thank Chevoir

I visited it after having read the reviews on Tripadvisor. It is really a nice surprise. The atmosphere is not great as there are just a few tables for people who do not want to use the take away service, but tableware is of a good level you would not expect in such a place. The contemporary fresco on the main wall is very attractive. As far as atmosphere is converned is definetly not the right place for a first date, but it is highly recommended for (small) groups of friend. Food is good, fresh and cooked to order. portions are copious: a starter and a main will satisfy even the hungriest parties. I had the spring rolls (the most filled I have ever seen) and the Pad Thai: very nice, rightly spiced and reasonably priced. Highly recommended

This is our third visit to the Blue Elephant - we've found the dishes to be fresh and tasty - nice crisp vegetables along with a generous portion of chicken or shrimp in the dishes that we've had. The food has been consistently good. The prices are great for Norway - prompt and friendly service. We will definitely return!
