Ordered spicy basil fried rice and red curry and both were good, but not extraordinary. Works for visitors who need something other than pizza and burgers. The people who run the place are friendly and the best thing was they were open till 9 pm. Lot of restaurants close at 8 and we are kind of late eaters. They also... More

The food here is really good. The people who work here are very nice. I have had a few things here. I have had the Green Curry with Chicken and it was one of the best Green Curries I have ever had. I also had the Chicken Satay and it was delicious. Their Pad Thai was pretty good too. Their... More

Good menu options, great Thai ice tea and coffee. Small restaurant with good service and a reasonably priced menu. Appetizers are excellent and some very good deserts.

Food was good.. but the Thai iced tea was a bit watery. Staff was willing to accomodate dietary restrictions - nuts, vegetarian etc.

Were driving through on a Sunday night and wanted to stop at the Greek Seafood restaurant, but it was closed, so wandered a bit further down the ECR and turned into the Elephant Thai on a whim. Glad we did! The food was tasty - we've been to Thailand two times and this really reminded us of the food there... More

What a nice group of people! Indeed the service and food are excellent. We love this place for lunch or dinner, for us it is preferably dinner. With the pumpkin curry and the pineapple fried rice we are very happy, and maybe a bit stuck on the things we order. The spring rolls are so fresh and crunchy, and I... More

After a performance a group of 9 stopped at the Thai Elephant. Very friendly and helpful staff. I had crab fried rice dish that was delicious. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal. My partner had wanted a hot and spicy dish and it didn't have the kick she desired but all American-Thai restaurants seem to keep the flame down.... More

The papaya salad is really good, and the cream cheese wontons - yum! I will admit I don't go here anymore due to a poor experience. My husband's ordered soup and it was EXTREMELY hot - very abnormally hot as if it was microwaved. When we spoke to the server, she assured us it was not microwaved, that nothing is,... More
