We had super high hopes of eating at what seemed to be the most authentic Thai restaurant in the city according to reviews and even though that I would not argue that it was very authentic (in that once seated you could quite easily imagine that you were in a "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant right in Thailand). To me the restaurant experience is all about "everything"; the journey to the restaurant, stepping into the place, being greeted or not depending on the venue and sitting in anticipation of a great meal. This is where it failed for me at The White Elephant and the food just did not make up for the lack of everything else. I would be uncomfortable saying that I really enjoyed myself because to be honest I just did not. In this case I would sacrifice some authenticity for an overall better dining experience regardless of how good the value is. Maybe it is me because I do feel bad not speaking more highly of this place.
