Once again we have both had an amazing meal tonight. Tried most Indians around Chorley this is a regular for us now. Quite a big place which is great to get a table early evening at the weekend. Food was amazing and can never fault service. Definitely worth the extra few miles drive to get such a great meal with... More

We have been here twice before and it was good, sadly last night for my dad's birthday it was terrible. Our booking was 7.45, we asked to be seated and our order taken at 8.30. By 9.30 I'd had to ask a number of times for our starters. We then endured another 45 minute wait for the main course. The... More

Abit too spicy in parts however the best chicken pakworas I've ever... More

Very nice restaurant, serving excellent food. Vast in size and always feels empty. Nice seating but staff a little too business like. Needs to be a little more 'friendly and efficient'.

My family and I are regulars at the Elephant and we've never had a bad meal in all the years we've been, we've even had our Christmas dinner here a few times! If you like Indian food then it is well worth giving the Elephant a try, great food, fab service and reasonably priced - perfect for any occasion!

As far as Indian restaurants go, so many are just standard; not bad but not great. The Elephant (aka The Blue Elephant) stands out, head and shoulders, above the rest. The quality of the food is genuinely second to none. The service is excellent. The Elephant Indian Restaurant manages to take the customer away to somewhere exotic. The decor, the... More
