Dear Friends who eat frequently at this Thai cuisine restaurant in Thousand Oaks, CA invited us to meet them. I met my husband there, and we plan to return based on the cuisine we ate, for example Tofu Curry. However, the big "elephant is the room" is slow, inept service. There is no question about Front-of-Room earnestness and wanting to... More

This is the second time eating here and it was even worst than the first. Horrible customer service (two ladies next to me waited 30 minutes and one of them still did not get her food...and it was the lunch special). They finally just got up and left after repeated attempts to get food. Our food did come out within... More

Hard to believe service this bad happened in California. The drinks order took 20 minutes and was wrong, one of the starters was forgotten and turned up 20 minutes after everyone else had finished thiers despite several reminders to the staff. One main course was delivered to the table well over half an hour before anyone else's turned up. We... More

We just ate at the White Elephant and our experience tonight was abominable. We have been regular patrons since we were introduced to this restaurant. In the past six months we have gone to this restaurant at least monthly. In the past six weeks we have had two experiences with terrible service - but tonight was incomprehensible. After waiting nearly... More

My husband and I shared the beef salad with a light dressing, a green curry chicken with snap peas and a great pad Thai with shrimp and chicken. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted so good we filled up fast and requested a doggy bag!

We had a variety of dishes and all were prepared very nicely and the food quality was excellent. The soups, curries, and the sticky rice were all very delicious. I would definitely go back again when in the area. Our servers and waitstaff were friendly and attentive. A very nice experience.

Bebop music while your dining - horrible tasteless broth - greasy and mushy overcooked Drunken Noodles - kitsch decor - spices available on request - good luck.

After living here in TO for over 25 years, I have found this the best for this type of food. They serve real Thai food with index ratings for heat by spicing it, not just adding peppers. I have had been in some of the best Thai restaurants from Boston to West LA going back 35 years. I remember when... More

This is a great, local family restaurant. Nothing fancy, and the restaurant environment isn't special, but it is a go-to for us both dine-in and take-out. They will customize your order to accommodate vegan or vegetarians -- the veggie green curry is even better than if you get it with chicken!

My wife, myself and our daughter had dinner at White Elephant this past Saturday night. The place is small and intimate. We ordered spring rolls, pineapple fried rice and a chicken dish. The food was very good and very fresh. The meal was followed by coconut ice cream with fried banana. The dessert was not as good as the dinner.... More
