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

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

I can only echo the recent posituve reviews. We are regular locals and always find food and service consistent. Though we have had to train ourselves to skip starters, just pops and mains for us!,
