The Blue Elephant Thai Restaurant 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. Our name comes from the fact that we are in the elephant house building in the heart of Parnell, Auckland.

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