Good local thai foods with good staff service. There were Thai traditional dance performed right before dinner time. Good and luxarious ambience but the taste was not as good as what I expected. The foods are some costly considering the prices.

Two questions! 1) (for the rep) My wife and I are heading to Phuket in February, I've already made reservations for dinner, but am thinking about taking the cooking classes with her as a fun activity. How far in advance should we book to be assured a spot? 2) (for any folks that have done it) How was the cooking class? My wife and I love to cook, but we are by no means pros. We like being around food and markets, we like to see "how it's done" in the kitchen, and I think we'd have fun if given a chance to try our hand with a little professional guidance.

Unfortunately we didn't do cooking classes - we were there for an evening meal only. The setting is beautiful and Thai food amazing, you can't go wrong with classes.
Hello, what is your range of vegan options?

Good morning khun Nick. The Blue Elephant Phuket doesn't require a particular dress code, smart casual would be the most appropriate as it does remain quite a unique Location. 😉
