“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Had no booking just turned up and we were welcomed by polite and helpful staff who seated us and took our drinks order. we were left to choose our meals and when requested the order was taken. All the food was Excellent and to a high quality. All courses arrived piping hot from kitchen with plenty to go round and staff remained polite and helpful throughout. Only our second visit in 2 years but glad to say things have not changed and this reviewer would HIGHLY RECOMEND this restaurant now Known as the Elephant, to all.

“Would be the best ever if staff stayed the same”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Been every couple weeks since jan after this indian reccommended by various friends & work colleagues.. Never tasted better indian food in all my life (even in India itself) expensive some might say but u get what u pay for.... The drinks for children could do to be extended & lowered slightly as a cordial is same price as lager .... Otherwise a great night out.. We have been on a monday one time & found it great to see the waitress that serves drinks at wkends there with her family enjoying a meal... All staff are helpful but on the good few occasions we have booked but been unable to be seated to eat straightaway, we have found it a pleasure to sit in lounge and chat to her while she works and that helps pass the time until we eat..... Pity she not been there for 2weeks..... Other than that excellent food the chef needs a medal .
