The old Thai Elephant in Portishead is re-opening as a Fish Bar. Hope this will be as successful as the Thai Elephant was. Its such a shame that we no longer have a Thai Restuarant in Portishead High Street.

This restaurant closed a few months ago. We used to use it occasionally and always enjoyed the food even if it was a bit cramped and the service a bit slow.

I am not sure why people are writing reviews for December 2013, as this restaurant has been closed since November. The whole place has been gutted. The Thai Elephant was excellent when it was open.

I have eaten here or had takeaway from here lots of times and it is always great food, so tasty and doesn't taste fatty like some takeaways. It is now back open and the same family run it with friendly service. The set menu is really good value and lots of choice. The location is not great but worth overlooking... More

Good service. Excellent food. Nice restaurant will be going back soon with work for our lunch. Really cheap but that does not reflect in the food.

Went to Thai Elephant one Saturday evening after reading great reviews. Only to find that this restaurant is now closed down, so sad.

Nothing much to look at on the outside as its part of a grotty looking plaza of the high street. The friendly family who own the place are good hosts who make you welcome. Never had a bad meal here and everything tastes SO good. We eat here twice a month on average which must tell you something!

Another great meal at this authentic Thai restaurant. Really tasty 'clean' food at good-value prices. The restaurant is situated in a pretty unattractive concrete precinct off Portishead high street, but if you are more interested in the food then recommend you give this one a go. Always enjoyable.
