“Elephant Thai is authentic Thai food! Atascadero is blessed to have this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

We LOVE Thai food, a few years ago we flew to Bangkok for 10 days to take cooking classes... so we love to check out the local Thai cuisine just about everywhere we go.... That being said, we always look forward to coming home to Elephant Thai!
Nek and Ae are so friendly and run the restaurant with love and it shows in the food, where they use the very best & authentic ingredients! Our particular favorites are The Panang Curry with Chicken, we order medium spicy (which does not disappoint) it is a very generous portion of the golden goodness served up complete with the swirl of coconut cream on top for presentation, also we like to pair it with Thai Basil w/ Chili and chicken and Jasmine rice. And their Pineapple fried rice is a treat as well, and if you have never tried Pumpkin curry, theirs is spectacular! YUM!
Meals here are equal to anything we can get in Los Angeles Thai town, and as authentic as you find on the streets of Bangkok! Plus they deliver!! So even at home we can have a meal that dances on our taste buds and make our mouths and tummy's very happy! Thank you for being there Elephant Thai! We sure miss you when we are out of town!

“Excellent Thai food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2011

I have eaten at Elephant Thai many, many times. It is very popular with locals and people who just happen to find it while driving through. We love the Jungle Curry, which is a green curry with lots of vegetables. I always have to buy extra white rice though, as they don't give you enough to match the amount of the curry. It is really good and you can order your sauces here mild, hot or very hot. My son loves the kids menu "child's fried rice with chicken" It fills a plate and is a good meal for kids 12 and under.

They are open daily for lunch and dinner. Try it, you won't be sorry. Lunch prices are very reasonable. The appetizer cheese puffs are really good by the way. They also have an outside patio that is very nice & I don't know if smoking is allowed out there or not as I don't smoke. They do a large take-out business as well. They have some deserts as well like ice cream and rice pudding I think.
