Thai with the elephant

Wanted to try another Thai restaurant, something close to tanasbourne. Found this neat little place. It's pretty big, food is nice but the service can be better. The place wasn't busy and wasn't empty and still we had to wait a while to order, shortage of staff makes it a little annoying as there... read more

Thai Elephant was recommended to me by the front desk staff of the Hampton inn near by. I travel quite extensively in the US and Canada and one of my top 3 food options I seek out is Thai. I was so impressed with their food. The flavorings were exceptional. I even had some left over food which I had... More

The Chiangmai noodles with tofu - make it spicy - are absolutely delicious! Sweet and spicy, smooth with the noodles and coconut broth - unreal. The ambiance is nice and the staff is friendly. The quality of food is nice and the location, while convenient, makes the place seem touristy - but it is not. Great spot for awesome food... More

Met some friends for dinner here and was pleased with the quality of the food and the service was QUICK! Definitely good for a quick bite out for Thai food!

If this place was in our neighborhood, we would be regulars. Spent the night at the nearby Embassy Suites and used an Entertainment coupon at Thai Elephant. Have been here a few times before for lunch, but hit it for dinner this time around. We started with an order of Spring Rolls (only $4 during the Happy Hour, which we... More

Found this place very good. Being a Veg ,found quite a few options but the Veg Red Curry at this location has been my favourite and of course can not forget the courtaeous staff. Whenever I am in Portland , a meal at this place is a must.

I love this little place and the Thai Basil Chicken rocks. All the curries are good. The only negative I would give it would be the bland soup they serve, is reminiscent of dirty dishwater, but the rest of the food is fantastic. Bonus! They are usually in the entertainment book, so can eat there for 1/2 price. Want to... More

I've eaten at Thai Elephant a lot, and the only good meals I've ever had are the Green Curry and the Pumpkin Curry. I really love the Green Curry and get it almost every week. Literally everything else I've ever had there is pretty sub-par.

If you love heat, try the curry! Me and my wife barely made it through the MILD (we're not big on spice, BTW), but we both agreed that everything tasted great!

Love Thai food, but this was awful. The chicken Pad Thai had a horrible after taste and weak color. Too much tofu maybe. Service was lacking, too. On a warm summer evening we wanted to sit outdoors. Our server acted put out to have to attend to the few diners who chose to eat al fresco. No warmth at all.... More
