I was very impressed with this place right away. Food was great, service was good and the overall experience was delightful. I really didn't know what to expect and I'm not too firmiliar with Thai food but I really enjoyed this place and I can't wait to eat there again. I also really liked that you can bring your own...

I have gone to this restaurant twice now. The food was good, however the portions were somewhat small relative to the price. The larger problem was service, which was slow and unimpressive - for me at least. Maybe I was there on "bad days", however I have to rate my overall experience as "average" for now.

They have $8.95 lunch specials that are still very generous portions. service is always friendly and you can be in & out in under an hour for lunch time. It is nicely decorated inside and very clean. food is really good. I suggest the pineapple fried rice with chicken.. and dont forget to ask for the spice rack! They also... More

I've been going here for a couple of years and I've never had a bad meal. We go in at lunch time a lot and they have a lot to choose from, the service is always great and they're always willing to give you recommendations on new stuff to try. You can't go wrong here.

Modestly priced, excellent food. We had beef satay , won-ton soup and spring rolls as appetizers and for entrees we had pad thai (noodle dish) and shrimp cashew nut (mixed vegetables.) Too much food; we took some home. Everything was excellent. All of the above only cost $45. We went on a Saturday evening and we had reservations but walk-ins... More

This is a new restaurant since I was last in this area. It's an attractive structure with a calm atmosphere inside. Servers are attentive - we were even offered better seating as soon as it became available. The menu is extensive and it was hard to choose. We started with lettuce wraps and they are presented so you assemble them... More

The title almost says it all. We went there because of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Although we haven't tried all restaurants in the area yet, it will definitely remain in the top ranks as one of our favorite places for lunch or dinner. Just one minor issue on the negative side, the seating could be a little bit more... More

This was my second visit to The Elephant Trail in their new location. I have been very impressed both times. The decor is lovely, the staff is friendly and efficient. The food is excellent.
