We had an early dinner at the Green Elephant. The price was reasonable, and the food was okay. Nothing to rave about. We had curry chicken, curry pork, steamed vegetables and a very good lentil soup.

We had a wonderful lunch here. The food was great but even better was the service. The table setting was exquisite and we asked the waiter how the made the glass holders (which were like a blooming flower. He took the time to show us just exactly fold the napkin to form the flower. A fun place to go

We ate outdoor, it was not too hot. The staff is very kind, also the quality of food is good. If you're hungry it's the right place to eat, because we had large portions
