The Blue Elephant first opened in 1986 on the site of a Victorian factory in an unfashionable and busy part of Fulham Broadway and seemed exiciting at the time. Its greatest appeal to the London diner would be its interior design which is almost like an idyllic oasis in our noisyand overcrowded city.
As soon as you enter the doors you are in a completely different world of tropical foliage, waterfalls,sparkling fish and a charming series of bridges as you walk over to your dining table.
Putting the decor aside the food is the main attraction and prepared by the chef Sompong Saejeaw in an appetising fashion to appeal to the western palate. If you are adventurous enough then try the stirfried Thai spiced crocodile meat with chili,basil,fresh peppercorns and palm hearts.
But for the faint hearted they have more traditional dishes like chicken satay,the staple Thai green chicken curry or the marinated duck.

EL METRO is a real gem of a restaurant in the heart of Fulham which is a must for anyone who visits London. The exterior speaks for itself as it is quaintly decorated in the traditional Spanish style complete with a heated outdoor terrace to delight the intrepid diner.
The staff are very friendly and happy to talk to you in detail about any of the dishes you many want to eat on the menu.
They have tasty Tapas,seafood-like calamari,squid so on and so forth.
Their selection of wines and beers, especially if you like cold beer is excellent. They have live music at the weekends,and with Chelsea Football club around the corner from Fulham Broadway Station it can get a bit rowdy and noisy.
The prices are very reasonable and its worth tipping for the service.
