My wife and I were in the area taking care of business. We've always wanted to try this specific Thai restaurant. It was nested in a strip mall among other shops. We easily found it and pulled into its parking lot. It was the middle of the afternoon when we entered Elephant Smiles Thai Cuisine... read more

Came here because I was craving some fresh sashimi. Service was good. Nice green tea and the sushi roll I ordered was pretty tasty can't complain there. But the shashimi I ordered was still frozen. Fat pieces of frozen salmon. Still on the look out for good sashimi in Hampton roads.

This place is truly Amazing..... They had Japanese and Thai cuisine. Its small restaurant, but very welcoming ambiance. We ordered pad thai, which is really outstanding. Then we ordered grilled salmon jaw, chirashi bowl, unagi don and udon tom yum. Pad thai was the best one among them. Although i liked all of the dishes. All the dishes were different... More

Kids love sushi so decided to try this place out. Almost a 100$ later. Way too expensive. Adds up quickly. The food was good but not a favorite. May be back. May not.

The food was not very good. The noodles were your average oodles and noodles overcooked. The sushi was not good. We love sushi, but will not be going back here for our sushi/Japanese.
