I have gone to this restaurant twice now. The food was good, however the portions were somewhat small relative to the price. The larger problem was service, which was slow and unimpressive - for me at least. Maybe I was there on "bad days", however I have to rate my overall experience as "average" for now.

They have $8.95 lunch specials that are still very generous portions. service is always friendly and you can be in & out in under an hour for lunch time. It is nicely decorated inside and very clean. food is really good. I suggest the pineapple fried rice with chicken.. and dont forget to ask for the spice rack! They also... More

I've been going here for a couple of years and I've never had a bad meal. We go in at lunch time a lot and they have a lot to choose from, the service is always great and they're always willing to give you recommendations on new stuff to try. You can't go wrong here.

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
