Brussels was the first city to have a Blue Elephant restaurant. It was initiated over 30 years ago in 1980 by Khun Nooror Somany Steppe, a Thai living in Brussels with her Belgian husband, Mr. Karl Steppe. With a passion for Thai cooking, Khun Nooror with the support of her husband and other partners, quickly established what became one of Europe’s leading Asian restaurants. The renowned Blue Elephant London further established the name, followed by Paris and Copenhagen. Today there are 12 Blue Elephant restaurants serving the best in Royal Thai cuisine throughout Europe and the Middle East. In Thailand, Blue Elephant restaurants can be found in Bangkok and Phuket.
