“Wild game decor and Asian-inspired menu, adult & kid-friendly alike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

The Elephant Bar is a great compromise when you have kids but don't want fast food. The prices are reasonable, and the safari-theme decor will appeal to all. There are lots of upholstered booths that offer privacy -- I've even taken vendors here.

Recently, their menu has been refreshed. Still lots of Asian-type dishes, but there are still plenty of options for the American culinary-phobic palate. For example, my teenage daughter wanted chicken tenders and macaroni & cheese; although this dish wasn't on the menu, the waitress assured us it was available and certainly it was (albeit the chicken tenders were crusted in panko).

I had the ahi tuna appetizer with seaweed salad, which was delicious (chopsticks were not offered). You will have to ask for low-sodium soy sauce, which is on hand but not regularly presented.

The exotic cocktail menu was extensive, bathrooms impeccable, and the food service amazingly quick at lunchtime.

“Delicious Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Second trip to this place and we'll be back! kind of a Eurasian Fusion cuisine. For an appetizer we chose the sesame ginger calamari which were tender, very flavorful and served with a warm veggie slaw that was just fantastic. My wife had a braised beef over wide tagliatelle noodles that she said was very good. I had the braised lamb shanks - two meaty, falling-off-the-bone shanks for $15.00. They were delicious but I thought they could use a bit more garlic. Service was fantastic! Ambiance was very nice. Two beers, a 1/3 bottle carafe of wine, an appetizer and two entrés all for about $65.00.

Located on West Chandler Blvd which is East of the freeway.

“Average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

The service was great; very friendly. The atmosphere is festive. The menu selection is large and thus a good place to take folks with varying tastes. The bar drinks were very good. The only downside that stops us from giving a higher rating is that the food was quite average. That said, we'd go again due to the other positives.
