The popular Blue Elephant Restaurant at the Al Bustan Rotana Dubai offers great flavours in a lavish Thai setting. The abundance of orchids, miniature rock pools and artifacts flown in from Bangkok create an ambience that, with a bit of imagination, might just transport you to an authentic Thai Village, complete with traditional huts, tropical greens and waterfalls.
The Blue Elephant has a diverse menu, complemented by friendly and helpful staff which goes a long way in making this a memorable dining experience. The cuisine is consistently good, light, healthy and artistically presented in true Thai style. Vegetarians are also well catered for with an assortment of flavourful vegetable dishes.
There are also special theme nights where diners can enjoy a sumptuous buffet of traditional Thai dishes, complete with live cooking stations manned by Thai specialty master chefs.
