Beyond delicious!

Have been to the Green Elephant three times now and can hardly wait for my next out of this world meal there. The Burmese Tea Leaf Salad is to die for, the only problem is that I have to share the bowl with my dining companions! (think I should just order an entire bowl just for me) The Thai... read more

I find that since it is a new place it will grow and as long the food stays good i will go back. I like going to new places and this my be our new one for us here kind like the bay area.

My wife and I were looking to try something some Burmese food, and low and behold we found this place in Loomis, CA of all places. The Burmese food is excellent. You must try the Tea Leaf salad if it's available. The Garlic prawns and baby eggplant are pretty awesome as well. But it doesn't stop there, they have Thai,... More

Blended dishes that are Thai, Burmese, Singapore and Indian. The owner will happily explain the origin of each dish if you ask. I personally love knowing where the dishes comes from. I had the...

It has a different flavor that grows on you as you eat it. We also got the me goreng which was flavored just as we remembered it when... More

The food is unusual and delicious. My husband likes to get their sushi and I am addicted to laksa noodle soup and the tea leaf salad. The coconut shrimp are really yummy, too. Some dishes can be spicy, but they will tone it down upon request. I also had a really delicious drink called tamarind, sort of like ice tea,... More

The restaurant itself is small and intimate with a pleasant atmosphere. Service is friendly and fairly quick. Meal portions are generous. i can't remember the name of what we ordered but it had an egg on top...and it was good. What was nice...we had a choice of the degree of 'heat' (spice/chillies) we wanted, and the cook was right on.... More
