The food is absolutely wonderful! We had Thai spring rolls which are my favorite! fried wantons, pineapple fried Thai rice with beef, chicken with ginger, all very delicious! Service is excellent, may need some Plants to soften the look and create barriers but other wise exceptionally clean even the rest rooms and comforting

Great service and great food. It is a good choice for lunch in the area with a wide variety of items on the lunch menu. Prompt service will get you in and out during your lunch hour.

Passing through Avon we found this oasis at the foot of Avon Mountain. A warm, spacious, colorfully lit restaurant greets you the moment you enter. A semi-formal / in the country vibe complete with an outdoor patio makes this a unique culinary find. The dishes were full of warm, spicy flavor balanced and tossed to perfection. The soups were deep... More

We really enjoy eating here. The atmosphere is very casual. For us, it's more of a midweek place than an evening out. The seating is comfortable. My favorite thing is the seafood Tom yum soup pot. The specials are usually good too.

People often recommended this for their lunch specials. I understand that some people think their Pad Thai is not up to par, but I thought it was pretty great! I was surprised by the beauty inside this restaurant.

My family has been going to Elephant Trails since they were in their old location. The food is simply amazing and the staff is super friendly and always welcomes us! There are a lot of great menu options. This is a restaurant I 100% recommend!

We went this past Friday. We ordered chicken pad Thai and chicken satay. Simple, right? Guess again. The wrong order was brought to our table twice. We were not upset at all. We laughed it off. These things happen. This is where things went south. A different woman then approached our table and curtly said, "Exactly what do you want?"... More

Great Thai Food. Always fresh ingredients. The staff is really courteous. Being a vegetarian I must say good spread of choices. They close a little too early for general crowd i.e. at 9. So I literally have to run if I wanna eat there. The new item on menu, Curry Puffs are an awesome addition to the menu. If I... More

Wife and I had dinner at the Elephant Trail a week or so ago. The night we went there was a large office party there so perhaps the service and food was 'off' for the night. The waitress seemed to lack professionalism but again perhaps because the large office party was taking her time and attention away from us and... More
