Nice setting, but overpriced

The food was okay, nothing special. Defiantly overpriced for the portion sizes. Service was very slow, but the atmosphere was nice and quiet.

Food was ok. Not great. But service is slow and price is definitely overboard. Expensive even for someone who is used to overpriced restaurant and definitely not expecting such price in this country.

We had dinner here quite late. The clientele were almost exclusively westerners. We ate in the garden area which is very pleasant but I got the impression there were not enough staff for the number of diners. The garden probably seats about 60 people. The food is typically Burmese with Thai options and in general good. However, be very careful... More

Very disappointing, the food we ordered was very bland and overpriced. Had to point out to the waiters that several bamboo candle holders had set alight whilst waiting for our food, which they then tried to extinguish by blowing it out only to spread the hot molten wax everywhere and as no one was hurt it proved to be quite...

Even if we were ten and we arrived at 9 p.m. without booking , we were accepted by Green Elephant restaurant without problems . They cleared a table in the garden . There is also another open air area which is covered but it was full of clients and even the tables in the garden were almost full . It... More

Mandalay has many interesting things to see and do, amongst this is the food if you have a strong stomach. The Green Elephant is a great choice for western stomachs to experience something close to local cuisine without the tummy bug. A big hit with tourist buses, tours etc for obvious reasons. Meals are approx $US10 and taste is up... More

I was with a group and we uniformly had a good time. They even prepared a cake for the birthday of one of our members. The food was varied and they have a decent wine list. It is a bit pricey by Burmese standards, but this is not street food, and, in any case, i did not feel "ripped off".... More

Tasty food, but for the price they ask, the expectations were higher. Garden is nice and stylish for dining and service is good. Price and quality don't meet, however.

For the price this is poor value for Myanmar. Though the setting is pleasant outside the food was tasteless, lacking any of the vitality and freshness that is readily available from much simpler places. To be fair though, the portions were generous. It was the service that gets it the 'poor' rating. Main dishes arrived before soups. The waiter had... More
