Returned here for second visit in 12 months and I can't really complain or give high praise it was above average on both occassions with tasty enough food and the service was fine on both visits. The only down part for me is that it's not a very personal restaurant where you can enjoy a private... read more

It's been a couple of months since we last visited, and were regally poisoned. This time round we at least had no side effects, but then again we didn't get what was ordered. It's infuriating that even pointing it out didn't matter, I don't want to eat there again so why would I want the cost of someone else's mistake... More

Attended the restaurant on a Sat night- we live down the road and have been meaning to try the place for a while. Our usual favourite is Thai Pin in St Margarets which has beautiful authentic thai cusine at an affordable price. We did not have the pleasure to eat or drink at this establishment as no one came to... More

I visited on a Friday night having not booked a table. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience having never been before. Friendly and helpful staff, delicious food and we were very happy with the bill which was very reasonable and good value for money. Extensive vegetarian menu which is sadly lacking in so many other establishments. Would thoroughly recommend a visit and... More

our first time here but we enjoyed it more than our usual Thai in Kingston. Quite a full restaurant on a Saturday night about 8.30. No problems with the service. You just had to raise a hand. The thai fish cakes to start are slightly rubbery but better than the other. I had red chicken curry and it was more... More

This is my 1st TripAdvisor review, had the write the review as I'd selected Thai Elephant based on it's rating. Had gone for my Wife's Birthday on Valentines Day. I don't know if it was the Valentines day rush or the usual service, but the service was terrible. We'd gone at 8:30 by this time the rush hour was nearing... More

Look. Its standard Thai food. The sort that you get everywhere now. Nothing wrong with that. Here, the ambiance and decor are pleasing and relaxing, if a little dated, but thats being picky. The place could do with a revamp as it has been the same for many years, but thats ok too. we enjoyed ourselves.
