My only complaint - food was overpriced. If this was chinatown then yes, but as it was Gants Hill - it was not up to the same standard. The food was delicious, but you had to order more as the potions were tiny. The ambience is great - slightly to loud to enjoy a catch up with friends.

Our party of four loved the ambience, food and service at this authentic Thai restaurant opposite Faces nightclub on Cranbrook Road, Gants Hill. Inside it is like another world and the food is delicious, with a wide choice. Margaritas were well prepared too. I did not like the service charge on our bill, on top of an already pricey meal, nor being offered the choice to add a tip on top when I paid by credit card.

I reserved a table for five at this restaurant for a relative's birthday and to say that this establishment was a joy to eat at would be an understatement.

From superb food and excellent drinks to polite, courteous staff and a fabulous atmosphere of a Sunday lunchtime.

I was very impressed with the Elephant Royale and would not only eat there again myself but also encourage others to eat there too.

Had been meaning to try this restaurant and recently got the chance. Its really lovely inside and they have made an effort with all the decoration. As others have mentioned it is a little pricey I suppose, but when you take into account the generously sized dishes and good staff and nice surroundings it is worth it. Classic Thai. Will go again.
