Best Penang curry I've had in Thailand so far. So good we came back for breakfast the next morning. So many horrid restaurants in Karon we were so glad to find this one. Menu is ridiculously massive though. So choice is great if you have the patience to read it.

We have enjoyed breakfast lunch and dinner and absolutely loved it. Staff so friendly. Food is fantastic and we will certainly come back. You won't be disappointed. And there is no sight of young elephant!

This restaurant makes use of a live baby elephant outside to market their business. Do not support this evil and horrific practice. Elephants belong in the jungle, not entertaining tourists in a concrete market soi.

It's hard to find affordable dining in Karon, so we were delighted to stumble across The Elephant Cafe. The greeter was so friendly and cheerful, we just had to try the place after looking at the menu. We weren't disappointed, and have been back there for dinner 4 times!

We ended up coming here almost everyday for a lunch as the food was excellent, service fast & attentive and the atmosphere calm. The menu is great and you can get one of the best som tam in the Karon area from here. Would definitely recommend to everyone and love to come back.

I was lucky enough to live pretty much next to this place, so I came here for my first lunch after my arrival. I liked the homely atmosphere, not too big or too crowded and the friendly staff.
