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

The best, most authentic Thai you will find for eons! You absolutely must try it! It is a beautiful space and the service is kind!

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

Excellent food. new location is spacious and inviting. old plce was cramped. food is much better when eaten on site-take out gets soggy and doesn't travel well.

A family favorite for take out. Papaya salad, Tom Yum soup, Ginger duck are favorites. The only improvement is to have larger portions or more food to sauce ratio. We love the eggplant dishes, but, there are so few eggplant pieces that it's always disappointing.

My mother, brother and I went here after years of anticipation. It was so worth the visit and we will be back again soon! My brother went to Thailand and said the food was about as close as one could get to the real deal. Everything is absolutely fantastic and the servers are very nice. Be sure to stop by!!
