“Tiny portions and expensive”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

We ate here after playing at the Dino Golf. Nice setting but over priced and even more disappointing when the food arrived with such small portions. My son ordered pork ribs and had three finger sized ribs. Another dish of sliced duck with veg contained only three slices of duck. Really felt we were being ripped off. Would recommend the Dino Golf but walk down the street for food.

On each an every visit we and our friends have a had a top meal with great feel with the jungle plants all around and the water flowing through. It's a wonderful restaurant to take children as well having some much to see and do while waiting for their meal to come.
It's ideal for what ever you like to eat. Cold drinks very quick servcice from the excellent staff.
Keep up the good work well done to all.

“Enjoyable themed bar, restaurant and mini golf.”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

After enjoying Thai noodle here at lunchtime we went back that night and was greeted by a cute baby elephant which you can take photos and get a kiss from (and if you wish buy a little food bag to feed for 20Baht). We had fun playing mini golf (18 holes) in a lush tropical/dinosaur setting (240Bhat each) although it was like playing in a sauna (32' and 90% humidity that night) and we were given a cold towel at the end of the game. A local beer in an ice cold frosted glass went down well in the garden bar afterwards. Would definitely recommend.

“Elephant used to promote, out the front and to walk the streets”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

We visit this area about four times a year and have done so for a few years.

Every time we hit the stretch between Karon and Kata the proprietors of this place have this elephant doing either or both of these activities.

Having experienced real joy at seeing these wonderful animals being treated with the dignity and care they deserve in not enough places in Asia; to see this animal prostituted like this is very sad. Right up there with FantaSea and people who walk about offering photo opportunities with some poor exotic animal.

Vote with your feet, go somewhere else that doesn't stoop to this sort of promotion. There are many great restaurants in this area, none of whom stop to this cruelty.

A restaurant should be patronised because of the service and quality of the food it offers for the price and an elephant should just be able to be an elephant in a conducive environment, not as entertainment for the morons who want their picture taken with it, nor as an advertisement for something so mediocre and seedy. Have a conscience, vote with your feet.
