This restaurant is part of the Radisson Blu Scandinavian hotel. I hesitate to try anything Thai overseas as the flavour tends to be watered down for non-Thais.

The name made me think of the original Blue Elephant Restaurant and cooking school in Bangkok, near where I used to live. So curiosity got the better of me and we headed down for dinner.

On arrival (lower ground floor) it was busy and buzzing with people eating and chatting. We were asked to wait in the lounge area as there were no vacant tables. There was another party of 6-7 people waiting for a table also.
After about 20-25 minutes we were led to a small table in a dark corner. The menu items looked and sounded authentic. Drinks were served and we were moved to another table which was larger and had more light.
Well, the entree came out (fish cakes and chicken satay) and what a lovely surprise - they both tasted like they taste at home in Bangkok! A great start.
for mains we had sweet and sour chicken with longans and red duck curry (gang phed pet yang) which, again, were excellent.
Finished off dinner with mango and sticky rice.
Spoke to the lady owner who confirmed that indeed, this Blue elephant restaurant is one of the sister restaurants to the original Blue Elephant restaurant in Bangkok. They won't ever compromise in taste so they fly in fresh ingredients from Thailand.
So, when you are next in copenhagen, do visit this place - it's the real deal. Highly recommended.

When I stay at Radisson Hotel, I do my best to make sure I have at least one meal at the Blue Elephant. The choice of food is very good and the quality of the food is absolutely brilliant. I quite enjoy eating there and the quiet and respectful service you get there. Would recommend if you are in the area.

Weird place in hotel basement for Thai restaurant. Inside there was really authentic feeling and you didnt know being in hotel.

Service was good and food was really excellent. If you are looking for good thai food in Copenhagen - this is the place to come!

i came to this restaurant after the first day of a business convention and was very hungry so i forgot to take pictures.

i started with a blue mai tai and got a cheap mixture of Malibu, blue curacao and juice.

i asked for something called the blue elephant pearls which is a selection of starters :

* nice chicken satay with good peanut sauce.
* very good pork dim sum
* well made chicken spring roll
* Prawn wrapped in rice paper stuffed with chicken accompanied by a plum sauce - i couldn't notice the chicken but the prawn was superb and the rice paper crispy without any traces of leftover oil.
* Katong Thong - crispy pastry cup stuffed with chicken, prawns and corn. a very good combo of flavours and consistencies.
* cucumber salad - frsh crispy cucunbers, onions and peppers in a sweet marinade.

* pineapple salad - delicious mix of pineapple, shrimps, chicken and coryander.

my main dish was homok talay, a deliciuos seafood curry wth coconut, pineapple, hot peppers and anisy herbs.

i also ordered steamed rice to absorb the flavors and the sauce. the rice as sticky and flavorless but wihen mixed with the main dish became an organic part of it and was very good.

for dessert i had the "star of siam" described as a "melange of our favorite tropical fruits and home-made puddings".

in reality it was a slice of kiwi, a piece of mango that lacked color and sweetness and a piece of pithaya. however thereas also a nice coconut sorbet a piece of a divine caramel pudding and a piece of another good pudding i failed to recognize.

the meal costed 565 DKK before tip.
service was nice but not very professional.

Thank tal s

The food is good and the staff are helpful, providing quick service. The dish I had was hotter (spice-wise) than perhaps I would have liked, but it was good otherwise.
