If your going to eat and be full then go elsewhere. There portions are soooo small!! I usually say portions are adequate or too big. Never too small!

Their menu had a makeover with fewer menu items and pictures. Ordered the soup (chicken tortilla) and salad (garden) but got a Cesar salad instead. Good and hearty. Just be sure to be on top of things, as the service was spotty with training new staff.

Ok it's another chain! BUT they have a number of different dishes. I like the jambalaya or Mongolian beef or even the ribs. They all have a slightly different twist to make them unique

Not very busy tonight so rapidly brought to a table. Our server, she was nice, smiling and present when needed. Cold beers and cocktails,are pretty good. We ordered the crispy chicken teriyaki and fried rice, it was very good. Tasty and crispy. The chicken and shrimps jambalaya is excellent and not spicy at all. A little bit disappointed about that.... More

Reasonable fusion dishes, including lamb shank stew --the US contribution?--eith a large bar. Incredibly busy and noisy singles scene with senior citizens in the booths. Ample shooing mall parking.

The Elephant Bar used to be one of our favorite restaurants in the area when visiting relatives - but we've noticed that the experience seems to be slipping over the last year or so. The menu has been greatly simplified - and retains excellent calorie notes for each meal - but has lost some of the variety that made it... More

Good food at a great price. Have been going there since they opened. My friends and I love the booths in the back . It's more private for get togethers. Casual dress , great drinks at the bar and good service.

Thank Darwin C
