“lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

First time here yesterday and went with family who'd been before and recommended it.
We went for an early sitting(6.15pm) and there seemed quite a few people in already and was completely full by 8 pm-pretty good for a Thursday.The car park is spacious good thing as the place was packed.
We were greeted on arrival and are coats taken away *****.
The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable and the food came quickly and was presented very well.
The menu was a bit busy and as I hadn't been before I needed a bit of time, but got there in the end.
The meal was lovely and we all enjoyed the evening, not too expensive and very well cooked.
Kingfisher on draft too.

“Much Better than your average Indian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Visited the Pink Elephant on Eater Friday with friends and thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
The taste and presentation was much better than the average indian's we have had before so recommend anyone to visit.
I usually try something different but played it safe this time but wished i had tried something from the House specialities when our friends meals came out as they were lovely.

“Indian with a twist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Same family as the Bengal Spice in Holmfirth. This restaurant is attached to a pub (the dinning and kitchen area) and have a deal with the alcohol. We booked on a Saturday and it was full so best to book (if early or meeting friends you can pop into the pub for pre dinner drinks).
The food is Indian but they have tried to give it a twist and have an extensive menu. They are very attentive with fast service. The only downside was my starter of a quarter Piri chicken which had very little meat on it, when I told them I was advised it depends if you get a leg or wing quarter-ask for the leg.
Our meals came to £25 a head for a starter, main sises and 2 rounds of drinks. It's worth a visit

Jahidur R, Manager at Pink Elephant, responded to this review, April 2, 2013
Thank you for your kind and honest comments, however I would like to reiterate that the Pink Elephant is not related to any restaurant in the Holmfirth area, yes we did work for them and one of us is related, but that's all it is, as for indian food, yes we serve Persian orientated spices fused with
Indo-Bangla blends, our food is unique in its recipes and preparations, we are gradually proving that we are a separate entity from the mainstream indian curry house's. We don't have a deal with the pub, we order, they pour, we serve the drinks on their behalf. We hope that in future customers do find the time to ask us questions related to the restaurant so as not to make assumptions solely based on "stuff they've heard or observed"
I hope this clarifies any future misconceptions about the Pink Elephant, and please ask we are happy and grateful to answer your questions.

Kind regards
Your host for that hectic night

We found this restaurant from recommendations on here and enjoyed a fantastic meal there with friends last night. Staff were attentive and food choice was varied and every mouthful was delicious.. We will certainly be going back soon.
