Excellent service and very tasty food. I would definitely recommend anyone to visit this restaurant. They have a variety of dishes and have a great atmosphere to dine in. I will definitely be retuning with my family and friends in the near futurer.

There were 14 of us, early on a Sunday evening, 6 children. They were so willing to receive us, moving tables and chairs and looking after us, drinks etc and things for the children to do. Food is very very good and sharing is easy. Reasonably priced too.

Nothing was too much trouble for him He advised me on wine according to my taste. I am shocked to read the poor reviews as we did... More

We had a Sunday Buffet here last year and looked forward to our return visit but was left somewhat disappointed. Prawn crackers were placed on the table but as we were waiting for a couple of late friends to appear the crackers were soon eaten. The empty basket was removed and not refilled. Soup was offered which we declined for... More

We got a takeaway. The chilli beef was fairly flavourless and the Thai green curry just tasted of salt. The building looks beautiful but after that experience we probably won't risk actually eating in there for quite some time.

The Golden Elephant just of the high st in Wheathapsted,herts. Parking can be a bit tricky so a space out front on main rd could be better. Warmly received when I booked a table and found staff attentive . Food was very nice as were the drinks, Prices were medium to high but you gets what you pay for. Overall... More
