We went at the recommendation of a foodie friend who told us we would be hard pressed to find a meal as good as what is served at Elephant Jumps. We ate family style so that we could try more dishes. Tom, the manager, was very helpful in helping us choose the best options for us. I highly recommend the... More

I lived in Thailand for 6 years and love Thai food. My wife and I found this restaurant several months ago and have returned several times both for the food and the friendship we have established with the owner and staff. The food is consistently wonderful. The owner also loves to experiment with different things and offer them when he... More

After having been to Thailand only two months prior I didn't think I was ready to eat "American" Thai food but it was near our hotel so..... Spot on! They also do take out and delivery.

Everything was delicious. We loved the chicken satay, the Snow White soup, and the ginger chicken. The peanut sauce was excellent. The Pad Thai, however, wasn't good. It tasted burnt. For a staple of the genre, they should get it right. Overall, I still recommend the restaurant.

My wife and I ate here in the past week after many months of talking about it. Although somewhat hidden in a strip mall off highway 50, this place is well worth the trip. There are frequent specials, and I'd recommend one of those or anything off the "authentic" menu. These are traditional dishes from different regions of Thailand, cooked... More

I was so hoping this would be awesome. I got the chicken Pad Thai and I wanted it hot. It didn't really have any flavor nor was it hot. Since I did take out, I didn't want to go back to get it right. Sorry to say I most likely won't be back.

We will never go to another Thai place other than Elephant Jumps ever again. They have a geeat mix of "standard" Thai dishes and some authentic ones you won't find anywhere else. The owner is very attentive, explains all the dishes and will make recommendations for next time. The prices were super reasonable and the flavors were outstanding. We had... More

Thai restaurants have been getting better and better in our area. This was our first try with this restaurant, and we were very pleased. First of all, the menu is well organized, has a lot of variety, and can accommodate any preference. The waitress was positively delightful. She patiently explained the menu, and helped us order for one of our... More

I love this place. It is hidden away in a nondescript strip mall. I don't want to word to get out because it is often crowded/full. Yummy food and good service.
