This is the kind of place you would not walk into. It does not look like much with the concrete floor and a garage kind of feeling. A year ago they still had plastic tables and chairs now they have wooden ones. You will see pictures of food on the walls so you need to be strong and believe that... More

We ate here a few times while on our 2 week holiday in Karon. Staff was always lovely and the food and drinks were pretty great too!

The only 'downfall' of this restaurant is the huge menu! So much to choose from and such variety, I had my heart set on so much of it! My husband and I wound up ordering a tofu item, stir fried crab and veggies, rice, spring rolls, chef salads, and a club sandwich (we spent all day on water!). All the... More

Ordered fresh coconut water here with our meal and they served us warm coconuts. We've ordered at least 6 coconuts so far from various places and they were all served chilled. Even the ones at the beach. We asked our waitress if they have cold/chilled coconuts and she had no clue what we were saying. She waived another waiter over... More

I deeply sorry for your unpleasure experience. May I explain my apology, since i have many year running the restaurant, there are always confusing my restaurant's name with nearby restaurant. There are names "Subparod", "Elephant no.9" and my place names "Elephant cafe by Tan". I have checked my restaurant's record and my camera but I can not find any refusing... More

Came for dinner with my partner. Very busy-we were watched and asked five times if we were ready to order-it was as if we were being rushed. My green curry was the worst I have ever had! Bright green as if food colouring had been used. It was synthetic and not at all like a green curry should be. Hardly... More

A typical Thai restaurant with excellent service and actually delicious Thai food at very reasonable prices. I ate at other restaurants but the food did not rise to the standards of The Elephant.

Breakfast, steaks, pasta, Thai, Italian, you name it they got it. I came here twice and can recommend the silk wrapped prawns, masaman curry and the croissant. Very friendly and attentive staff and all around great experience.
