“Authentic Thai curries, great prices”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Went here 3 nights out of 7 during our koh tao stay. Each time we had Thai food from the menu and each time we came away very happy indeed. The indian, yellow, green and massaman curries are all excellent, as was the Tom kha and a few other dishes we tried. Meals come in at less than 100B per head as well. Only problem was the beef - dont bother as it is like chewing leather!

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Great food at a great price, all their curries are around 80-100 bath. The place is packed for a reason!

“The best Thai Green in thailand”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We ate at White Elephant 3 times during our 5 day stay in Koh Tao, because of their Thai Green Curry that I ordered on our first visit. I must say that a couple of the other dishes were fairly standard, but the Duck Pancakes and Thai Green Curry were the best I've ever tasted and extremely well priced compared to most other places in Koh Tao. I can't comment on much of the other food, but this restaurant is worth visiting for these dishes alone. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and I would go back to Koh Tao just for another taste of that curry!

“Tasty BBQ and Thai food”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Great little restaurant, I got a tasty red snapper from the BBQ for 250 THB. Location is good and the surroundings are nice. The service was good and the quality of the food was pretty high in spite of the price being pretty low.

Worth a look.

“Never judge a book by its cover”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Unfortunately we chose this place because it looks really inviting from the outside.it turned out we robbed yourself from one of the many other great restaurants on the island. myself and my girlfriend had different meals, but both with duck and they were equally revolting. The worst meal I've had in a long time. Service was friendly enough but a bit weird.3 different people asked us if we had already ordered. It was cheap but so are all the other countless places right around the corner.

Do yourself a favour and don't eat here. You will waste a great opportunity to have a really memorable meal else where
