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

I had a meal with my friends on Tuesday & the was only £9.95 starter, main dish & rice. The service was amazing & atmosphere is as would you expect. 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

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. This is not fancy Indian haute cuisine like some around here but a pretty... More

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!
