Pineapple Fried Rise - Wonderful - Pumpkin Curry - Terrific

What a nice group of people! Indeed the service and food are excellent. We love this place for lunch or dinner, for us it is preferably dinner. With the pumpkin curry and the pineapple fried rice we are very happy, and maybe a bit stuck on the things we order. The spring rolls are so fresh and... read more

After a performance a group of 9 stopped at the Thai Elephant. Very friendly and helpful staff. I had crab fried rice dish that was delicious. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal. My partner had wanted a hot and spicy dish and it didn't have the kick she desired but all American-Thai restaurants seem to keep the flame down.... More

The papaya salad is really good, and the cream cheese wontons - yum! I will admit I don't go here anymore due to a poor experience. My husband's ordered soup and it was EXTREMELY hot - very abnormally hot as if it was microwaved. When we spoke to the server, she assured us it was not microwaved, that nothing is,... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Atascadero. We ordered the Mussamun curry, Shrimp Pad Thai, honey BBQ pork ribs, and Tom Kha Shrimp. A big plus was that they had a Gluten Free page on the menu that made it easier to navigate the choices. One diner at our table could not have any citrus due to a... More

This restaurant was definitely worth the trip when it opened a few years ago. Excellent Thai food, moderate prices. Recently my girlfriend and I went there for lunch and were handed a bill for $60 at the end. And neither of us had any beer or wine. And the quality isn't what it was originally. Beware: if you order a... More

Service is good, food is very good. Portions are generous and I recommend their Mee-Krob which is a great starter.

Didn't have to check the other spot in town because this was the real thing. I came here weekly. Pineapple fried rice is the best!
