We had a variety of dishes and all were prepared very nicely and the food quality was excellent. The soups, curries, and the sticky rice were all very delicious. I would definitely go back again when in the area. Our servers and waitstaff were friendly and attentive. A very nice experience.

Bebop music while your dining - horrible tasteless broth - greasy and mushy overcooked Drunken Noodles - kitsch decor - spices available on request - good luck.

After living here in TO for over 25 years, I have found this the best for this type of food. They serve real Thai food with index ratings for heat by spicing it, not just adding peppers. I have had been in some of the best Thai restaurants from Boston to West LA going back 35 years. I remember when... More

This is a great, local family restaurant. Nothing fancy, and the restaurant environment isn't special, but it is a go-to for us both dine-in and take-out. They will customize your order to accommodate vegan or vegetarians -- the veggie green curry is even better than if you get it with chicken!

My wife, myself and our daughter had dinner at White Elephant this past Saturday night. The place is small and intimate. We ordered spring rolls, pineapple fried rice and a chicken dish. The food was very good and very fresh. The meal was followed by coconut ice cream with fried banana. The dessert was not as good as the dinner.... More

Good food. Good service. I am glad they have real coconut water. Their pineapple fried rice comes in pineapple shell.

We loved the food here. I got the green curry and it was awesome! Best Thai food ever! Husband got the seafood platter and it was also fantastic. The waitstaff were very friendly and came around often to see if we needed anything. Really impressed. Next time we are out here we will stop to eat here!

This place has some delicious Thai selections, and they know how to add the heat. The restaurant is small and cozy, a nice place to relax for a good meal. Just don't expect to get in and out quickly if you're in a hurry.

This place is our new home for Thai food. Very delicious and reasonably priced. I recommend the yellow curry which is out of this world. Each time we've eaten there the staff were very courteous and attentive to our needs. The place feels clean and appropriately decorated. Even our two year old eats everything we give him. Only thing missing... More
