Inspired on the culture, architecture and mainly on the Indian gastronomy, Elefanta restaurant was created. Bringing a bit of the magic and misticism of this place, in fusion with a modern city, the Elefanta Indian Cuisine concept was originated. With the service of our chef, Basant Kumar and other indian borned members of this team, we offer an exotic culinary delight, in a very authentic and special place. The restaurant has two tandoor ovens, typical from India, that brings to your palate the unique and exquisite flavors from our kitchen.

A unique venue at the mall, this large restaurant share space with a Thai restaurant . Seating is all outdoor, but protected. It was raining when we visited and no one got wet. The menu is divided into the typical categories: vegetarian dished, meat dishes, etc. Try the somozas, they are excellent. The nan is also very good and served... More

The food is not only delicious but tastes like Indian food actually tastes like in India. I can tell this place is owned or managed by someone who is actually Indian. I lived in India for 1 year so I am very familiar with the dishes, spices and flavors and dining here transported me back there within the 1st bite.... More

This place is a hidden gem. We came to eat here three times while staying at an all inclusive resort. It is a bit pricy but you get the quality you pay for. Manager was really friend and service was impeccable. The waiters were all friendly and helpful in taking pictures. They spoke some indian words which added to the... More

Me and wife visited this restaurant in Dec 2015. We ordered the kabas and the Goan fish curry and they all were very delicious. My only issue with this place is that they charged us 8$ (136 pesos) for a bottle of Evian water and we did not even order the water! All the dishes are very expensive but they... More

The venue and atmosphere is amazing. Ask for a table right next to the lagoon and make sure to apply some repellent. Food is good, service is always excellent. Located inside the La Isla mall. Great for dinning either with friends or for couples.

This year I decided to celebrate my birthday over a two day period and chose Elefanta as one of the two restaurants. The atmosphere of the restaurant is wonderful. It is designed in a way that one feels they are dining in a wonderful garden that offers Thai and Hindu statues, and views of the lagoon. The food was among... More

I kept hearing about this place from friends, and the wife was craving indian food. It was not the usual Panjabi/North Indian food we were used to - no mattar paneer, no paneer makhani. There were serveral dishes we had never tried before, and they were good, especially the paneer chop
