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. It's very tasty and I enjoy being able to adjust the spices to my taste. We were there for lunch and think the prices are very... More

Our absolute favorite Thai restaurant in the area. Always fresh ingredients and consistent quality.We try different menu items and we have never been disappointed. Friendly staff and owners. Try something other than pad thai ( which is great) you will truly enjoy everything...just trust their heat index or ask for a milder version.

I’m a visitor to Connecticut so I can’t compare this to other Thai restaurants in the area. This was my second visit and I would rate this as very good overall. Unlike some of the other reviewers’ experiences, I have never had to wait. Note: dinner seemed to end around 9:00 on a Saturday night (we were the last ones... More

We have had dinner several times at Elephant Trail and it's always been great. This particular visit this past Friday was excellent. We tried some appetizers and meals that we had not had on previous visits and both of our meals were excellent. I had the broccoli with pork and my husband had the garlic chicken. The meals were hot,... More

We went here based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. Quality ingredients and extensive menu with a few innovations. Had a softshell crab special that also included scallops and shrimp and fresh veggies -- extremely good. Fantastic veggie summer rolls. Others in party enjoyed the red curry. Got takeout another day -- crisply chicken pad thai, a little non-traditional... More

Friends rave about this place so one evening we gave it a shot. Ordered take out and sipped tea while waiting. Restaurant was busy as was the takeout section but staff was friendly and tea was delish. Bot noodle dishes were much too sweet. Spring rolls...outstanding! Hoping it was just a fluke. Will certainly give it another shot due to... More
