The original Blue Elephant restaurant was opened in 1980- nearly 32 years ago- in Brussels, Belgium by Thai national Khun Nooror Somany Steppe and her Belgian husband, Mr. Karl Steppe. With the passion of Khun Nooror’s cooking clearly evident, the authentic Thai Royal cuisine was immediately appreciated by a discerning European clientele. The popularity of the first restaurant led to the opening of a second restaurant in London in 1986, and subsequent openings in Paris and Copenhagen laid the foundations for further openings over the years throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia- with a current total of 12 restaurants in the group.
The concept behind Blue Elephant is to serve the finest quality Royal Thai cuisine, whilst also showcasing the heritage of Thai culture to a global audience. All the Blue Elephant restaurants are decorated in a distinctive Thai style featuring authentic Thai handicrafts and artwork. Substantial proportions of the menu ingredients are sourced in Thailand and flown fresh several times weekly to all the restaurant locations.
International success and acclaim ultimately led Khun Nooror to return to her Thai homeland in 2002, and after securing and restoring the historic Thai-Chine building in central Bangkok, the Blue Elephant Cooking School & Restaurant was opened. Ten years later, the Bangkok restaurant continues to delight guests with the elegant ambiance of the historic building and the finest quality Royal Thai cuisine created under the “hands-on” personal supervision of Chef Nooror. And the added element of the Cooking School has been a huge success, with daily classes introducing participants into the intricacies of the preparation and cooking of Royal Thai cuisine.
