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

Excellent Thai food and great service. The parking lot was over-flowing which told us this was a popular local restaurant. We were not disappointed. Would highly recommend.

We absolutely loved this restaurant. We loved it enough to make a special trip to the area again. The staff was wonderful and the food was fantastic! We'll be back for sure!

First of all, I love their chicken sate. I never even knew what that was until I had Indonesian food in The Netherlands several decades ago. This is the only place you can get sate in the Farmington Valley area. As I said, they have moved to a bigger place (their previous space had only a dozen tables or so).... More

Located on Rte 44, this restaurant is tucked away just a bit and a little tricky to spot the first time out...but well worth finding! Good food, one of the nicer Thai restaurants in the area and a very reasonably priced lunch menu.

We really like the Elephant Trail for many reasons! We tend to go before the dinner rush - around 4:30 - and enjoy great service and great food without the crowds. Our Book Club has met here and shared many dishes family style...and it's also a great spot to get together to catch up with an old friend and talk.... More
