They were amazing a must try plus we had our usual dished ie chilli beef (best we have ever had),the wasabi prawns the lamb cutlets and... More

Average Thai food for three of our party of four. Our veggi asked for tofu with cashew and yellow bean sauce. Dish was some tiny tofu cubes, a few burned cashews, and a burned candy dressing so dense the cubes were stuck to the plate. No yellow bean sauce. The grumpy waiter would not discuss it and suggested I go... More

I'm a big fan of Chinese and Thai food, and this place fuses both within the same menu, alongside a sprinkling of other Asian influences including, notably, Vietnamese. Strangely, the website does not show the full range of dishes on offer. Tucked into a former malt house, from the outside, this quaint building exudes charm. There's a sizeable gravel car... More

I must admit it has been a long time since I have enjoyed a meal as much as our Anniversary meal out a few days ago at the Golden Elephant. Joe is passionate about the food created at his restaurant and he is always worth asking if you wish to try new or different dishes. I wasn't sure what I... More

I have been coming here for many years. The service is always excellent and friendly and this visit was no exception. Superb quality food in a nice friendly clean atmosphere. If you don't visit this venue while in the area you are missing a trick.

This quaint restaurant just off the High Street up a small alleyway is a delight and always popular with the locals in Wheathampsted. The welcome is always warm and friendly, really nice small outside seating area for Al fresco drinks in the evening sunshine before dinner is lovely. Food is fresh, tasty, hot and plenty if it. Choose from good... More

A great restaurant. It is off the main road in the Maltings and not easy to spot. It was empty when we were there at lunch but food was great and plenty of it.
