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

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.

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
