This is the place to go in Offenbach area if you want typical Tandoori. Absolutely perfect. Not expensive and somewhat hidden and a restaurant that you can just walk by and hardly notice. But go. It is delicious and you defenitely wish to return as do I!

I have been looking for a decent Indian place since I came to Frankfurt. Tried out a few locally with little luck but this was rather nice and would go there again.

White Elefant offers great tasting Indian food at very reasonable prices. The atmosphere is very relaxing and inviting decorated with embroidery of Indian folk lore love stories. The meal for two offers all you need for a fulfilling dinner - Lassi, Papad, three meat/veg dishes, rice and dessert. Don't miss it if you are visiting Offenbach.

Honestly, this is some of the best Indian food I have had anywhere: fresh, hot, terrific service, large menu - it was all delicious without being overly expensive. Highly recommended!

There are few Indian restaurants in Frankfurt to choose from whether you want to dine out or have a meal delivered you are well covered. The trick is to find the restaurants with talented chefs, the establishments with great atmospheres and service standards, the dishes that bring your taste buds to life and linger in your memory long after the...

One of my favorite Indian restaurants in the entire Rhein-Main region. There is not even one dish I would not recommend. Nice service and decorated in a very Indian way with colorful paintings, chairs, benches. Main dishes cost between 10 and 17 EUR. Do not go without reservation on a Friday evening!

The place is much larger than you would think from outside. In many other places in Offenbach we have suffered of noise, not here: the indian decoration improves both atmosphere and acustics. The menu is really long, around 100 options, but clearly grouped to "chicken" "lamb" etc. It was not overly spicy but quite salty.

No complaints. Food ok. Service good. If you want a hot curry this is not the place for you. I would certainly go again.
