What they say: It all started in Brussels where Chef Nooror Somany Steppe and her team decided to take the concept of Royal Thai cuisine to the world. Since those beginnings, it can now count on 11 venues worldwide. With a major focus on delicate presentation, they’re now starting to offer a lot more old and rare recipes. Beyond the likes of the common gaeng kiew wan (green curry), you’ll now find gaeng kee lek and tom som, as Chef Nooror says more Thais are showing an interest in their culinary roots.
What we say: Blue Elephant’s sophisticated interpretations of classic Thai specialties and opulent décor have made it a hit internationally as well as here in Bangkok at the flagship property on Sathorn Road. The beautiful presentation really impresses, while the taste is equally satisfying. Dishes like gaeng om (curry with vegetables) really burst with balanced flavors and the khao luem pua (baked rice in lotus) is unforgettable—cooked to perfection.
233 South Sathorn Rd., 02-673-9353. BTS Surasak. www.blueelephant.com. Open daily 11:30am-2:30pm, 6:30-10:30pm.
What they say: Traditional Thai cuisine, as well as top quality ingredients. Signature dishes that have been around since the beginning include khao pad Erawan (stir-fried rice and chili paste) and pla yang bai toey (grilled sea bass with pandanus).
What we say: Good food (all the recognizable favorites), an Asian ambiance (a little Thai silk and a lot of air-con) and friendly service are some of the virtues of this cute eatery in the very swanky hotel. More than just a tea room, they also have delicious main courses worth trying. The comfy seats, tranquil atmosphere and free board games are just a few of the details that ensure this restaurant stands apart from others. The food, however, is not a huge break from hotel Thai food tradition.
2/F, Grand Hyatt Erawan, 494 Ratchadamri Rd., 02-254-1234. BTS Open daily 10am-10pm.
