Interesting curries...

We went to the Elephant trail and took out several dishes. The curries are worth trying... very hot... so choose other dishes to accompany them and give your taste buds time to recover. I liked the tofu broccoli as did other in our group. The pad thai was a little below average- very dry and not... read more

While others may like the Elephant Trail, I did not find it to my liking. First I do not like it when they charge you for refills. The food was OK, I have had Thai food in many different cities and this was a little disappointing, While it may be a staple for Avon residents as a visitor I did... More

Went in the early afternoon and had the place to ourselves. Food was very good and portions plentiful. Pineapple rice was very good as well as both yellow and red curry. Service was very good, setting was nice. Needs a little more beer selection.

Went to dinner here with the family. We love Thai and wanted to try something new. The place was easy to get to with ample parking. Decor was nice and the staff was good--attentive but low key. The food was tasty. Everything we got was good: spring rolls, wings, wonton soup, green curry, sweet & sour chicken and pad Thai.... More

parking readily available; good ambiance, friendly service; good food!I like the idea that the food is apparently not cooked ahead of time. It tastes like it was just made; hot in temperature and as hot as you want it in spiciness!!! Yummy selections- actually, difficult to decide. I thoroughlt enjoyed the food each time I have been there!

The pineapple rice was excellent. We had it with chicken. The drunken noodles were also good. We also had that with chicken. The red curry was good with seafood. The only thing that was not great was the ginger pork. The service was very friendly and efficient. The space is big and airy. Parking is plentiful.

Very nice people work here but we were disappointed in the excessive amount of tomatoes used in the recipes to the point of tasting like ketchup was used. Very pricy for the portions served.

The first thing, I am surprised that neither the restaurant nor TripAdvisor have corrected the address! They have been at 85 East Main Street for some time, according to our waitress. We stopped here for an early in the week, but fairly late lunch. For that reason, I was not too concerned that there were only a few other customers.... More

When my children come home from college this is the first place (besides my kitchen)where they want to go! The service is great and the food is even better. Very fresh tasting and fun to try new things. The traditional standbys of Thai food are done well and the Sticky Rice with Mango for dessert is awesome!
