“Very nice surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

We were very surprised to find an Indian restaurant in Tallinn, and were slightly nervous about what the food would be like. Happy to report that the cooking tasted like the chef came from the Nepal/Kashmir region, which has a slightly different (and to me more interesting) combination of spices than your standard tandoori-and-vindaloo joints. I could happily eat here regularly if this restaurant were close to where I live!

Portions are very generous (as the waitress warned us) but we ordered 3 items anyway (which she said would be too much, and she was right) because the menu was so extensive and tempting. Each dish that arrived had a very distinctive and complex flavor, unlike most Indian restaurants in the US where it feels like they used the same pre-mixed combination in most dishes. Prices were quite reasonable.

“Food is great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

I really like the food in this restoran. It is simple and tasty and well seasoned. The general athmosphere is not excellent, but kind of unique and nice, though.

“Moose curry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Excellent staff kept the place open late for a large group of friends as it was due to close. Food was excellent and there was plenty of it. Not a traditional Indian but very quirky and full of charm and I would recommend it to anyone travelling to Tallinn.

“Great indian food in Tallinn... but too much!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

The Elevant restaurant serves a quite wide variety of indian food in a pleasent exotic atmosphere. Food is good but portions are definitely too big so, at the end, after having tasted one starter you risk getting too full to try the rest. Apart from this, the place is relaxing and enjoyable. Definitely recommended!.
