Reliably good thai food

We have been here a few times and always find the food to be reliably good. It is not the most authentic thai but is freshly prepared with good ingredients and well presented .prices are quite high but portions are large so it's good value

Go quite regularly as the food and service is good. I wouldn't say it's as authentic as Thai food could be, but good all the same. It's a bit dark inside so not ideal if it's a warm sunny evening.

Had a business dinner evening in this cosy litttle Thai restaurant in Cowbridge. It is a snug little restaurant serving decent Thai influenced food in abundance. The staff are very friendly and helpful, ensuring that youj have enough food and wine.Prices are average. Worth a visit if you are in Cowbridge and craving some good tasty Thai food.

Authentic Thai staff provide good friendly service and an extensive menu selection . Food was acceptable but expensive. On our night the staff were stretched and we did have a long wait between courses. However have been before and whilst the price was the same the food was of a higher standard . Would revisit as the staff do care... More

Delicious food in a cosy atmosphere. We hadn't booked but they squeezed us in and the place had a nice buzz. Service very friendly and efficient. Reasonably priced bottle of white wine really helped the evening to flow. Also, they were unphased by my partner's nut allergy and easily accommodated him,

We visit this restaurant all the time.. Because the service and good are always amazing! The sizzling beef is my favourite dish and always tasty! The manager is always laughing and making us feel welcome.

Have been here many times both at lunchtime and in the evening and the food is always superb. We love the Satay chicken starter and the Massaman curry for the main course. The That pancakes for dessert are always a good choice. The staff are friendly,helpful and welcoming and we would recommend you try it.

I visited the Thai Elephant last week and it was empty and not sure if it was open as there was no one around, after calling for service I was greeted and shown to a table. I ordered the garlic and salt spare ribs and Green Thai curry with sticky rice. The ribs were delivered in Minutes the bones where... More
