Happened in. It was great

We didn't want seafood or a touristy restaurant. We had a pumpkin curry and jungle curry. They were both delicious. I don't like real sweet curry. This wasn't an issue. Service was good.

We walked over from the hospital for lunch. You'll be pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff. We split the Pad Thai, which was flavorful and plenty.

My wife and I were playing Pickleball this morning and when we finished found ourselves feeling pretty hungry for lunch and asked our fellow Pickleballers if they had eaten at the Thai Elephant restaurant on the Coast Hwy. They recommended this highly so we checked it out. The place is nothing special to look at but do not let that... More

I usually order the Pad Thai and Thai ice tea, great taste. I like their red curry also, but the base level spicy is too spicy for me! Good priced lunch specials and all meals served with delicious coconut milk style soup.

We have gone in there many times and love it. There are other Thai restaurants in town, but this is by far the best.

My husband and I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Probably the best Thai food I have had. Great portion sizes. Very good staff. You can order take out. We always debate on getting an order of won ton soup to take back home. We have been close to driving the 80 miles just to get dinner!

I had a delicious noodle and veggie meal with tofu and it was excellent. The meal was preceded by a wonderful dish of coconut milk soup with diced veggies, tofu and green onions. The flavor was just incredible. My husband had a large dish of a noodle and chicken soup that he loved. The restaurant is clean and simple and... More

I usually eat seafood in Newport since therre are so many good choices for it here, but I was in the mood for Thai so tried this restaurant for the first time. I am glad that I did. I was greeted with a friendly smile and that friendliness continued throughout the meal from the whole waitstaff. The food was promptly... More

Came with my Thai wife as she was craving Thai. We live on Chiang Mai Thailand and consider ourselves experts in Thai cuisine . This little gem did not disappoint . Owner Ksun was gracious and welcoming . All items we had were delicious. We will definitely be back .

Fantastic curries and soups and noodle dishes...oh my! Any of the dishes can sub tofu for meat so it's a nice way to get eye popping flavor for herbivores. I order from here once a week.. Yum.
