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

A warm welcome and excellent service as usual at the Elephant. The premises and decor are clean and comfortable. No need to book if you are dinning around 6pm. An extensive food and drinks menu. Food is served promptly and the manager is happy to make sure the courses arrive at your pace. Ideal for couples and large groups alike.... More

Visited with friends for a second time. Welcoming and very polite staff offering decent service. Reasonable decor and ambiance. We chose the set menu for four (£80) which turned out to be very good value. There was plenty of it and, most importantly, it tasted great.

We have been here several times but the most recent being New Years Eve 2013, we were a large group and it was the busiest night of the year but the service was great and the food came out in good time and was delicious. The prices are reasonable and we will be returning again soon!

This is without the best Indian restaurant in the area - I live in Leyland and have been coming off and on for some years, but this last year I have made more frequent visits - why? because the food just keeps getting better and better. I try and have something different each time I visit - the menu has... More

Visited yesterday, we are regulars and keep going back. Lots of choice of starters, sides and mains. I recommend the Prawn Rogan Josh, nicely hot without being too hot! Popadoms very fresh. Only slight gripe is the naan breads are on the small side...but just order an extra one!! Back again no doubt in 2 or 3 weeks...
