nicely located , clean and fresh , a little on the pricey side for the quality you get but all in all a decent experience

A great family dinner with a cool breeze from the bay - we sat on the balcony. Good service and great food. Good range of starters - from nuts to satays etc. Mains (we had green curry and kids had pineapple rice) were excellent. too full to try pud!

After being recommended by our kids and after reading the trip advisor reviews we were very disappointed here. Yes the location and view is great but the food was very average and small portions with lots of heat but lacking the subtle thai flavours that we love. Service was also pretty ordinary.

Ate here in July 2013 on our first night of the trip. Happy Elephant had come highly recommended by both TA and colleagues.

Service was great - prompt and friendly. There were 7 of us in the group and we all ordered Thai dishes. We were a little disappointed with the size of the meals. For example I ordered a green chicken curry. In all there were only 3 tiny slivers of chicken in the meal and the rest was made up of vegetables. It was tasty but disappointing to be fishing around for the chicken. We all had a similar experience with our meals. Prices are definitely "up there"by Thai standards, although compared to Australian standards it was still a cheap meal.
We didn't return again during our stay as we found so many other options in the same location that offered the same menu at better prices with better quality food.
Given the reviews - maybe we were just there on an "off" night???

Kids meals were great here and the kids wanted to eat there again. Unfortunately a couple of the adult meals were overpriced for the quality of the food that came out esp the seafood dish that my father ordered. I think this was the most expensive one on the menu and it was small and not value for money. Also as this restaurant is on the water you probably pay more to enjoy the views while you are eating which is amazing.
