I've been to this place for many times, it has never disappoint me. Tried the nasi lemak, fried chicken chop with black pepper sauce, sandwich with good selection of bread and also the nice blended mushroom soup. There are also good range of cakes. Nice place for lunch when the weather is hot out there! Do try to three sour... More

Environment is nice and spacious(not crowded like other places). Thus, have more privacy and feel more comfortable. Lighting is just fine with beautiful decorations around. Love the elephants picture too. The mushroom soup is the taste of real mushroom, not artificial one. French fries need a lot of improvement(tasteless). Salmon and fish and chips are of average. Prices are reasonable... More

There is wide range of choice. The establishment is bigger than most as it took up two shoplot floor so it's really great for gathering with friends and family. The menu has nothing extra ordinary to offer though.

Price for meal has increased slightly over the years. Food a little too salty in general. Good atmosphere, not to quiet nor noisy. Good place for a family meal of course! Staff were all very friendly. Service could have been improved by clearing empty plates more quickly.

Foods are okay and I liked their mushroom soup most. Price is quite reasonable and the service is pretty okay. Worth a try.

I used to enjoy Elephant's and would come with friends regularly. Having always come away with a pleasant experience I decided to take my English fiancé here. Some issues. 1. A man and his wife and 2 noisy kids walked in. Prior to that it was only me and my fiance in the bistro. The said man was clearing his... More

Good western food, with good services. Was there for Mother's Day Dinner with the family, a big grp of 12, and all the food was correct. The pricing is quite reasonable for western food. Do make bookings, especially during occasions week.

Large variety of food items, but they make their own focaccia bread so I always order a sandwich with focaccia bread. Their chocolate banana ice-blended is pretty awesome too. I think the environment has become noisier with more echoes ever since they renovated though, so maybe a bit of a negative there.

4 years ago the shop used to have better and a more romantic decoration. The foods are just normal, but the hygiene was alright. Price was was at the mid-range.
