Flavours of the food are authentic, portions are HUGE, service is nothing special but not a concern. We had Penang curry, green curry and Thai basil. All had unique flavours and just the right amount of heat. Worth the trip

Read good reviews about this restaurant so we wanted to try. Came on a weekday dinner but it's quite busy. We were allowed to wait in the hotel lobby (it's situated in a hotel) and we were told 30-45 minutes wait but we waited only...More

We've tried other Thai restaurants in Calgary and White Elephant stands out as the best. The quality is consistently high. You can really tell that whoever is cooking has a love for the food and cares that every meal is memorable. Service is not perfect,...More

Love the Thai food here, very authentic, you can pick your spice level. Very busy Place, often just call and take out. My all time favorite dish is the Penang curry with beef, pad Thai and drunken noodles are also very good.

My cousin recommended us to come here for Thai food. We never really had Thai food before so we said why not. It looks like a really weird & hidden location. We tried shrimp pad thai and a few other dishes. It was really good...More

Delicious authentic Thai food. So glad I found this place! Nice atmosphere and huge portion sizes, definitely bring an appetite. Worth the money but the service was something left to be desired.
