“Good Thai food”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

We decided to give this restaurant a try since it is near us & had good reviews here.
The food was a little slow coming from the kitchen but tasted good & was hot & freshly made.
The tables have clean linens & the chairs, although plastic for outside dining, are good quality chairs. This is better than many places where the chairs feel a bit woobly which is why I mention it at all. The seating inside has wooden chairs.
They do not serve beer however, which we were looking forward to having with our meal.
The location is in a area of shops near the Baron Resort in Kuah & it does not face the main road so you need to look for it just a little.
We will likely go here agian.

“Good honest home cooked Thai Food”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

Tried the restaurant on reading the last review and found the food to be good with friendly service. The cooking was home style and portions generous. It is reasonably priced and I would thoroughly recommend it.

“Great new Thai Restaurant handy for the Westin and the Yacht Club”
Reviewed April 11, 2011

We live in Kuah and while there are numerous places to eat a lot of them are very similiar. It is nice to have somewhere new that is a bit different.

The Green Elephant is just that. It is nicely decorated and more like a resaturant than the local food stalls. It has Thai food dishes served as you would find them in Thailand. The menu is good and has all of the dishes that you would expect to find in a Thai restaurant back in England. The curries are there as well as some excellent other dishes.

The staff are friendly and provide complimentary drinking water and snacks. It has a western clean toilet and is a step towards the restaurants that you would find elsewhere on the island at Cenang or Tengga.

The quality of the food we had was very good and the prices excellent. If staying at one of the posher hotels the prices will seem extraordinary. We ate a whole seabass at RM28 (just over a fiver) and curries and other dishes at RM8 to 16. A tiger beer is RM3.5.

Having recently spoken to some tourists who were staying in Kuah bu complaining about the prices in the hotel I urge you to give this place a try. This is what eating in Langkawi is all about. Excellent food at bargain prices.
