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

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!!

Lunchtime is a great way to avoid the long lines normally associated with this restaurant. The Pad Thai had just the right amount of spice and lots of chicken. All in all a very enjoyable lunch.

This restaurant has long been one of our favorite places to eat, even when it was in the dark cramped smaller space. The reason? Because the food is so authentic, fresh and delicious and the flavors are perfect. We are not alone in this opinion because it is crowded, even in its new, bigger location with far more seating.

Full menu with fresh and large serving. Fried wanton with chili sauce-appetizer! Also spring roll with plum sauce very good. Thai fried rice with chicken excellant taste. Great for large groups.

This "hidden gem" has gone big-time by opening a much larger and more visible restaurant just down the street from its former location that was tucked in the middle of an outdoor shopping plaza. There are actually two locations, one in West Hartford center, and for those of us that live on "the other side of the mountain", this one... More
