We came at 6 pm, lots of tables. They provide wet tissue to clean hands, free wifi. Food was tasty and fresh - we had ribs for starter - delicius. Curry soup - rly big portion, duck with basil not so big plate but let say it was ok. Mango juice was tasty. Prices are normal. And the menu is... More

We ate here a few times while staying in the area. All the staff are loverly and friendly. The service is really good, we never had to wait more than 10 minutes for our food even when the restaurant was packed. We were never disappointed either. The food was really good, and reasonably priced too. Thai food being roughly 80... More

Food was amazing and service was good. We had ordered mixed seafood pad Thai and veg green curry with steamed rice. Although greencurry looked little watery, it tasted really good.

Came here as our hotel recommend it to us. Very good and spicy food. Service was also good and the prices were reasonable. Had the chicken panang and it was delicious. Took away a star as they don't take credit card.

We discovered this place accidentally and glad we did. We ended up eating here 3 nights in a row and found service to be good. The food was pretty good too. Very family friendly with toys to keep little ones occupied. Cheap prices and lots to choose from.

This is the kind of place you would not walk into. It does not look like much with the concrete floor and a garage kind of feeling. A year ago they still had plastic tables and chairs now they have wooden ones. You will see pictures of food on the walls so you need to be strong and believe that... More

The only 'downfall' of this restaurant is the huge menu! So much to choose from and such variety, I had my heart set on so much of it! My husband and I wound up ordering a tofu item, stir fried crab and veggies, rice, spring rolls, chef salads, and a club sandwich (we spent all day on water!). All the... More

Ordered fresh coconut water here with our meal and they served us warm coconuts. We've ordered at least 6 coconuts so far from various places and they were all served chilled. Even the ones at the beach. We asked our waitress if they have cold/chilled coconuts and she had no clue what we were saying. She waived another waiter over... More

I deeply sorry for your unpleasure experience. May I explain my apology, since i have many year running the restaurant, there are always confusing my restaurant's name with nearby restaurant. There are names "Subparod", "Elephant no.9" and my place names "Elephant cafe by Tan". I have checked my restaurant's record and my camera but I can not find any refusing... More

Came for dinner with my partner. Very busy-we were watched and asked five times if we were ready to order-it was as if we were being rushed. My green curry was the worst I have ever had! Bright green as if food colouring had been used. It was synthetic and not at all like a green curry should be. Hardly... More
