When i visited this resto last week, i ordered Pad Thai, spring roll and pineapple fried rice. Overall, the food tastes good, especially the Pineapple Fried Rice and this is the first time i find raisins, nuts and pineapple. Unique, isn't it? It tastes sooo good!!! The ambiance is so lovely, recommended for you who want enjoy Thai food in fine dining style..
Authentic Thai cuisine in contemporary Asian setting. Their Green Curry and Pad Thai are among my favorite in Jakarta.
Blue Elephant is tucked away in Menteng in a standalone building – which I feel always gives so much more character to restaurants compared to being housed in a mall. The restaurant provides a genuine atmosphere without trying too hard - lending itself as a great venue for a dinner date.
Having lived in Thailand for several months I have a good idea of what Thai food should taste like and I am very attuned to “localization” of Thai food. Fortunately Blue Elephant being an international branded Thai restaurant has remained steadfast in its tastes.
The green curry and pad thai were among some of the dishes, which I felt, were well executed. Also the “Som Tam” or Papaya Salad was prepared well with a good balance of spiciness and sourness. However some dishes were slightly disappointing such as the “Tom yum gong” which was on the sweet side. The wine was also reasonably priced with a Jacobs Creek Merlot costing around IDR390K.
The service at the restaurant was excellent and the waiters were very attentive to our requests.
Overall a very pleasant experience and would recommend to anyone looking for a good value Thai meal in cozy surroundings.
