We are frequent visitors for lunch as it's such good value and the food is great. A 3 course lunch for £6.95 is outstanding value. I have had the red, green and yellow curry, the chicken noodles and the Pad Thai all which are delicious. The restaurant is always busy at lunch time however we have always been able to... More

I am a frequent lunch time visitor to the Golden Elephant and find the food to be well prepared, well presented and very authentic in taste and texture. The use of obviously fresh vegetables adds to the brilliance. The waiting staff are as wonderful and the chef is talented ! A starter, Main course and coffee or ice cream for... More

Had lunch with my family, it was early and the restaurant was empty. We had the £6.95 lunch it was actually really good. My daughter is very picky with food and she loved the egg noodles. We definitively return if we are in the area.

Outstanding value, service and food at lunch time. Ignore the hours shown on their trip advisor profile - it's open 12 to 2.30 each day Recommend!!

Firstly I want to write that I am a frequent customer of the Golden Elephant which is a credit to the restaurant. Their restaurant is usually busy no matter what time of day which again I believe is testament to the quality of the food served. I have been to Thailand twice before which is where I first discovered Phad... More

Surroundings were't lavish, the restuarant is fairly small in terms of seating capacity. Service was good. The menu was fairly extensive with a wide choice of Thai dishes. Our starter was very tasty (mixed platter). Main courses were excellent - just as good Thai food should be - slightly spicy and well cooked. Overall we had a good meal which... More

Great Thai food, well priced. The restaurant is lovely and the staff are efficient, if not ever so slightly aloof. This is always our first call when we can't be bothered cooking our own Thai food. Definitely worth a try.

People of Belfast - this is not Traditional Thai! Whilst tasty enough, this place was a big disappointment compared to the reviews. I'd class this as more of a Chinese/Thai fusion. Battered chicken in dishes is not Thai and the flavours were more like a Chinese. I love Thai food, and this place was one of the worst I've ever... More

We have lived across the road from this place the past 3 years and eventually got to go for a meal here! The food was delicious! Service was excellent! Nice restaurant although we were seated in front of the bottom bar directly under an air con vent which was blowing down on my neck and rather cold! Apart from this... More

Started using here a lot recently for their takeaway menu. Chicken pad thai, tom yam soup and red curry are all amazing. it's very reasonably priced and the pad thai is enough for two people. Makes for a nice change from all the chines/indian joints in the area.
