We had some delicious food at Green Elephant, while sitting outside in the garden. Lonely Planet advised roast-aubergine salad and mango-pork curry and we can confirm that these are still delicious dishes. In fact, after more than a week in Yangon and Mandalay, the food at Green Elephant is the best I’ve had.

A chain, but could quality. We ate dinner during a 3 day Mandalay visit. Large shaded garden. Service a bit slow, but friendly, so slow down and relax. We had interesting dishes including vegetarian options for my partner. They were quite happy to omit fish sauce/prawns from his food when asked!

After a bit of a walking tour around royal Mandalay, called in here for dinner. Well, the local beer, pork, mixed vegetable curries and coconut rice were delightful. The steamed banana in coconut milk and mixed fruit platter were a great way to end a most pleasant meal. We did not book and had no problems. Service was well done.... More

I came here from a recommendation off the Internet. The place was clearly a "tour company" type place. The food was mediocre. I asked waiter for recommendations and he wasn't too helpful so I ordered what was recommended from the Internet. Food was very salty and not particularly flavorful. Wait staff seemed bored. The funniest part was the smoke everywhere... More

Green Elephant has three restaurants and we have visited both the Mandalay and New Bagan branches. The setting of the Mandalay one sets it apart. The menu and prices are high-end compared to many other restaurants, but in this case the atmosphere and quality are worth the expense. It appears many tour groups visit the Green Elephant, but they weren't... More

Communication here is a problem. After having read that they tend to serve appetizers after the main meal, I emphasized as well as I could to the waiter to serve the appetizer first. Well, they served the main meal first, and when I asked what happened the waiter was dismissive about it as he later brought the appetizer. One of... More

We found the food to be OK but very service was slow. Not too sure why the place gets such good reviews, it was an OK restaurant with OK food but just that .... OK. Very high prices compared to every where else we have eaten in the last three weeks.

After 9 days in Myanmar, this was our most expensive and least enjoyable dinner of all. The Food was of average quality, however Portions are really large. What was most annoying however, is that we ordered appetizers and we received them after our dinner was finished. Furthermore, one of the waiters were really impolite when asking them about the delay... More

We had dinner here which was ok but nothing fancy. Most of the tables were outside so you only have a lantern to see which can be a bit of a worry. The price was a little higher than the hotel restaurant. Be aware that there are mosquitos around this time of the year.

This has the same feel as its sister restaurant in Yangon with the added attraction of a large outdoor dining area that can be enjoyed in the evening. The meal was excellent.
