The Blue Elephant Thai Restaurant in Parnell has been created by Karen and Wayne who enjoy working in hospitality with an emphasis on satisfying their customers. We do not feel we are just another ordinary Thai Restaurant and that is why we like to label our restaurant innovative and authentic. We are opening Blue Elephant Clevedon on Tuesday 25th September (stay tuned)

Our wish is that everyone who visits us enjoys great food, a happy atmosphere and fantastic service.
