Authentic Indian food in a friendly setting

The pink elephant is set in a friendly pub atmosphere and the service is warm, welcoming and helpful from start to finish. The menu is based around all areas of India with dishes for every taste and is cooked using fusion cooking which lessens the need for cooking with too much oil or ghee. We are... read more

I went at the beginning and was very disappointed then by quantity, layout of the restaurant and slow service. I understand it was near the beginning but you should start how you mean to go on. The staff this time were quicker which was an improvement and I had a takeaway so couldn't rate the layout this time. Anyway I... More

I understand that you have had a couple of bad meals at the restaurant I know that you have a favourite restaurant close to ourselves all I can do is put this review down to slander obviously because of your favouritism. I also understand that you saw one of the waiter's talking abruptly to a local lad but did you... More

I love this place. The staff are great, friendly and welcoming. The food is always exceptional and being a Persian menu, it is a bit different to your usual Indian menu, but has the traditional dishes too. This is my favourite place by far, no where has ever beaten it and I try a lot of different curry houses.

Situated adjacent to the Foresters Arms in the village of Honley, near both Holmfirth and Huddersfield, the Pink Elephant is a step above most local Indian restaurants, offering unusual dishes cooked with flair and imagination. The range of food is impressive and particularly so for vegetarians, as even the 'specials' include many meat-free options. There are also some unusual fish... More

This is our fourth visit now having recently moved into the village. We came on the day we actually moved house and have been every week since. The menu is extensive and caters for all tastes and budgets. The staff are really friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The take away food is just as good and... More

A great place with friendly staff, great food and good service. It is situated in half of the Foresters Arms, Honley. This means that you can arrive early and have a drink or two in the pub before moving into the restaurant. If you let the guys know, they'll call you through from the pub when your table is ready....

Our third visit last night. The staff are incredibly polite, ready to please and very helpful. An excellent menu choice and food to die for. Beats the Mumbai Spice and other 'top' Asian restaurants.
