Found this gem of a restaurant in Portland. They don't take bookings and were full when we arrived, but we were seated within 5 minutes. The food was very tasty and appealed to the non veggies as well. The Thai red curry was possibly the best I've ever tasted !! The food was reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

The Green Elephant was recommended to us by the owner of the B&B where we stayed. In a great neighborhood of shops, galleries and the museum. We were there for lunch. Delicious entrees. We had the stir frys with brown rice and they were well-prepared and filling. Well lit and clean restaurant.

What a delightful experience to have dinner at this restaurant!!!! As a recently converted vego it was amazing to be able to walk into a restaurant and order anything off the menu. The food was fabulous, fresh, arrived quickly and generously proportioned. The service was very friendly and very reasonably priced. Will definitely go back again and certainly would recommend it to others!!!

We go to this restaurant all the time and have never once had a meal that was anything less than amazing! Friendly, efficient and helpful staff couldn't be nicer. Great menu with lots of choices - it is always hard to decide - and then I always end up getting the Thai Ginger Noodles. And if you think you hate brussel sprouts, you must try their brussel sprout appetizer - you will never feel the same about brussel sprouts again.

Everything I have ordered during several visits has been exceptional - fresh and very delicious. Do try the roasted brussels sprouts appetizer - people at the hotel and on the airport shuttle were gushing over them! Wow! A large menu with interesting drink options (two lovely mead choices), handy locale, experienced staff, very reasonable prices, and food that will convince you that vegetarian eating can be excellent and satisfying makes this a no-risk dining option.

A minor issue can be the size - it is fairly small and can be noisy and fill up quickly. Arrive at opening for a quick seating.
