“Great Location, average food and expensive drinks but worth paying to sit by the Lagoon at night, very romantic.”

Description: Inspired on the culture, architecture and mainly on the Indian gastronomy, Elefanta restaurant was created. Bringing a bit of the magic and misticism of this place, in fusion with a modern city, the Elefanta Indian Cuisine concept was originated. With the service of our chef, Basant Kumar and other indian borned members of this team, we offer an exotic culinary delight, in a very authentic and special place. The restaurant has two tandoor ovens, typical from India, that brings to your palate the unique and exquisite flavors from our kitchen.

Well to start with the positives, the location is brilliant set right on the Lagoon and a very romantic location after dark. With regards to the food well it was average at best and expensive.

The part of the UK that we live is just a few miles from the "Balti Triangle" which is an Indian food lovers paradise so us Brits know our Curry and we eat out a couple of times a week at various Indian Restaurants so know our Nan from our Roti. The samosa stater was OK not bad and our curries were again just OK bordering on being a bit under spiced and greasy.
I bought a bottle of Singa Beer which set me back about £6 which was very expensive. I would probably go again just for the location but might be more tempted to try some of the other restaurants on the Lagoon with the same settings but hopefully better food.

Fresh and delicious. Ask for lagoon views if possible. Food is very expensive, though. But, definitely an enjoyable experience.

We went during march spring break. The food was delicious, but I thought the price was too high what I received. I did get mosquito bites all over my legs as we were seated next to the lagoon. Oddly enough, I didn't get mosquito bites at the thai lounge next door. Overall, a good meal, but very expensive.
