Outstanding!

My partner and I had a fantastic experience at The Elephant. We were personally greeted at the door and shown to our table.

Although I had some issues in the past at The Blue Elephant in terms of takeaway menus, my wife and I decided to give the restaurant a try ....after all - the food has been consistently good. As we had not dined there for several years, we asked the very pleasant young waiter to explain the menu and what choices... More

This is the only Indian restaurant in the Chorley area we will visit. Food is always excellent and the staff very friendly. So much so, we had our wedding reception in the function room upstairs!

Indian food is never my first choice, probably only eat it every few months. But of we do fancy it we often head here. The elephant is probably my favourite out of three that we eat at. Just love the prawn purée and butter chicken. Both delish! Service is attentive and they usually give you a lovely big table as... More

Very friendly and smiley stuff ready to advise on your choice from excellent a la carte Manu. You never feel rushed. Excellent wine & beer selection. Reading other comments I... More

I went for the first time yesterday. The place was cold. The service was awful, one waiter didn't smile all night and then at the end tried short changing one of us. The food was ok apart from the prawns. They were crispy? Like had a shell. I'm sure that's not normal. I will not be returning.

In my opinion this is the best local curry house. After many, many, many visits to the restaurant and takeaway I only have the highest praise for the food and service. They can always recommend a new dish for you to try so breakaway from the Korma and take their expert advice, you will not regret it. Dump your other... More

We were asked to entertain a private party with our band and we setup in the function room upstairs. It was a decent size with a bar area and dance floor. The decor was in need of a bit of repair, with some damp damage to a couple of wall areas, but overall it was a nice room. We dined... More

Fantastic food and atmosphere. Friendly staff. After a horrific experience at another Indian restaurant this was simply bliss. Highly recommended
