Great Thai Food

We ordered from the lunch menu which was a good deal considering it came with eggroll and a pretty large entree. Ordered the Spicy Thai Curry dish with Tofu and it was sensational! I even had some leftover for my hubby to share at home :)

We tried this thai restaurant and were not happy with the quality of the food we ordered compared to the other Thai choices around.

We started with the spring rolls and their signature rose dumplings - very good. Beth noticed her sweet and sour was missing pineapple but they quickly corrected that. My glass noodle soup didn't disappoint and sent both of us home with lots of leftovers. Good service.

Worst Thai food I've ever had. Grilled garlic pork was very salty. Didn't get any shrimp in basil seafood. Chicken wings was over cooked and dry. Papaya salad was horrible. I am Thai/Laos, and I know what it all should taste like.

The Thai Elephant is one of my favorite take-out spots. They have always asked me how spicy I want the Pad Thai when I call, and I've never had a bad experience at this place in over 10 visits. Give it a try. Dine in, or call ahead for take-out.

Went with family and friends, everyone ordered something different, most of it was good, but a little spicy for those not use to Thia food. Service was OK, but a little slow, language might have been a problem.

We could not have received better service or food than we enjoyed today. Service was attentive without suffocating us and the food was tasty and high quality. They dial the heat to the diners tastes so fear not the heat factor that can be an issue with Thai cuisine. We will be back.

Thai restaurants are abundant here, but only few that I have loved! Thai Elephant was another favorite place of mine, very nice place to eat at.. I usually, always order for pick-up from this place, but I also sometimes have lunch too here!! The people around my job love it, they got hooked up by it! It's not too far... More

Thai Elephant: Great Thai food, Huge huge portions so order wisely. More like a diner so wont call it sit down place with ambience, we did the take out. But food is very tasty and very reasonably priced. They are busy so we had to wait almost 25 minutes after placing the order but the food was worth the wait.... More

This is probably the best Thai food I have ever had! The food is very fresh. The place seems like it is family run. I highly recommend the spring rolls, peppered steak, & fried banana dessert! If you are near Destin or around Destin, DEFINITLEY go here!
