We think it's pretty good Thai, for this part of the country. Some dishes were more authentic than others. We liked the Tom Yum soup, Prawn Fried rice, Didn't care for the Bangkok Catfish, could hardly find any fish in there. Overall, we'll probably come back to try other items on the menu. The location is convenient too, for lunch... More

I had seafood with sweat and sour sauce. The mussels were not fresh, the sauce was too sweet. However, the service was very fast and staff very nice.

The Tom Kha here is probably the best I've ever had! I get this at nearly every restaurant we go to. This is the best! I also had sweet sticky rice with it (not the dessert with extra stuff, just by itself) it also was fabulous!! My husband had the beef Pad Kee Mao. He got it #3 in spicy!... More

We came with a large group and we ordered a lot of different things. I noticed the portions were very small for the price. It really wasn't family style. The food was good but no where near what normal Thai places serve. They have a large menu. Service was poor at best. They had too many people for the amount... More

In Hillsboro on business, craving Asian, I ordered take-out from Thai Elephant. So tasty. Perfect portions. Only criticism is that there was no cutlery in the bag and I had to ask for these from the front desk of my hotel. Other than that, great experience.

This was a first try at this restaurant today for lunch, and a new food experience for me. I had the Golden Cashew stir-fry with chicken. It was very good and spicy even at a medium level. The portion size(for me) was enough to have for lunch and later for dinner. Since this was a take-out, I can't review to... More

good food but not large portions. I was a little surprised at this. Its a little expensive for what you get.. Good food and quality. The place looks great and it's good for a company lunch. I have lunch often.. But I'm on an expense report.

The food here has been delicious and fresh every time - you can even see the chef's prepare it in the open kitchen! The atmosphere is casual, but we rarely see many families with kids when we come. Our favorites are the Red Curry and Pad Thai with shrimp. Good service too!

Great location in the outdoor mall area. This thai restaurant is big. The servers are super fast. The food was okay. There are very limited parking spots, so you could have to walk. The road is easily accessible to wheelchair and strollers.

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
