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

Very disappointed with my recent experience here, as my boyfriend really likes the food and the new building looks promising. Since I have dietary issues and can't handle rice or rice noodles, I decided to skip the rice with my meal and instead ask the server if I could have a side of steamed veggies, saying that I would be...

We thought we would give Elephant Trail Thai restaurant a try in Avon. This was a big disappointment. First the ambience is terrible with a big open room featuring a row of tables in a big open room with terrible lighting and just bad atmosphere. The spring rolls were fine but the sauce which came with them was poor. The... More

This is one of my favorite local go-to restaurants. The atmosphere is relaxing, non-intrusive. The staff always extremely courteous and attentive, and it offers, in my opinion, the best Thai food in the vicinity - besides it's sister restaurant, The Blue Elephant, in W Hartford. The fact that is it BYOB also means you can eat great food and not... More
