I have been here a few times in the past, many years ago. Decided to give it another try this weekend. The food was very nice, so delicious, but the service let the experience down. Our waitress seemed distracted, like we were bothering her. A few different girls served us but no one checked on us to see if we... More

After previously reviewing this place in 2013 and being very pleased, we haven't been regular visitors, since we have favoured other thai places nearby and in St Margaret's. We thought we would visit again because it seemed like a reliable choice. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. For starters, the deep fried tofu was just that. There was no seasoning or...

The food at Thai Elephant was very good, however, we found the service only so so. We did not receive a dish that we ordered - and were made to feel that it was a bit of an inconvenience to remedy. We received a similar response when we asked for more water. The price (value) was average.

Ate here on a Sunday lunchtime and benefitted from the set menu deal of £7.95 for a main and drink. There was also the option of a starter, main and drink for £9.95. Very good value for money. The menu options, even on the a la carte menu, were quite generic, so this is a Thai restaurant that clearly serves... More

This restaurant is run by a Thai family, it is truly delicious, everything they serve has it's unique flavour, I loved going to this restaurant, with such exciting dishes.

We have been here a few times now and previously the service was disappointing however the food has always been very good. This time around the food was amazing, the service was impeccable and the wine was very nice too! We had the Pad See Ew and a Chicken Red Thai curry and rice, it was absolutely mouth watering. The...

After an underwhelming meal the night before I was in need of taste, flavour and spice. Thai elephant provided what was needed after a late night. Pretty authentic Thai food, definitely tasty. I will go back

Have eaten in a lot of Thai restaurants and this has to be one of the best - authentic flavoursome Thai food. Waitresses were lovely and happy to accommodate my specific requirements.

We were so disappointed with his place. I remember it being so much better yes ago. We clearly picked the wrong time to come - the evening after the rugby. They were ludicrously short staffed and simply couldn't cope with a full restaurant. Our starters came out in batches - 20, 25 and 50 (yes 50!) Minutes after ordering them.... More
