Once upon a time, this restaurant, high up in the Lalit, used to be the Blue Elephant, a branch of the Belgian chain and one of India's first Thai restaurants. Then the Lalit moved its Chinese restaurant up to occupy the space and it has had no cause to regret that decision. Though much of the Lalit's food is now world class, this restaurant is slightly reminiscent of the old days with chefs who have been here for 15 years. But, what do you know? It works! The restaurant makes money.
