Went for fourth visit to The Elephant in as many months and was not disappointed. Previous visits have been with family, work-mates and friends varying in party size from 6 to 26. This time there were 10 of us and we had a good time. From greeting where there had a been a mix up over booking time - probably my fault - but didn't cause a problem. All professed meals to be good - even those who don't prefer Indian food. On all visits it has been very busy but staff seem to be able to handle it. Lounge seating afterwards very comfortable.

My partner and I took the kids (age11 and 6) here on new years eve fully expecting it to be overpriced and over busy and immediately we all were pleasantly pleased by the warm and friendly reception we received.The restaurant itself is stylishly designed but without losing its warm and inviting atmosphere and the food was of a really good standard as is the service, given that it was a busy night we could easily have been rushed in order to re-set the table but we were never given that impression. The price is very slightly more than some restaurants in the area but you definitely get what you pay for. We will definitely be eating there again and recommend anyone to give it a visit.

We have visited Mr Elephant a few times now and have never been disappointed! The last visit was for the New Years Eve celebrations and this was a great evening. The set meal was lovely with a party atmosphere.
