This is a charming little place breathing the atmosphere of foregone times. It has a lovely patio terrace, where traditional Myanmar dishes are served. Great eggplant, wonderful deepfried ricepaper pouches stuffes with pork or chicken. Service is friendly, portions big. Indian influence makes it slightly more greasy than neighbouring Thailand's kitchen.

Nice restaurant, nothing special. We were there in April with 4 children and had a good Asian meal. The staff however was anxious to get us out of the restaurant because we were the only visitors, so the bill was presented fast and other tables where cleaned while we were still eating

Lovely evening at the Green Elephant, staff were very attentive, menu varied. Setting outdoors was perfect and comfortable. Tried the famous Tea leaf salad which was a delicious experience. Would definitely recommend. A little on the expensive side however well worth the experience.

My husband and I ate dinner here on a recent trip to Mandalay and liked it very much. The garden setting is lovely, the service excellent and the mango pork curry I ate was quite tasty. While I wouldn't label the whole package 'extraordinary' it is still a highly recommended restaurant for dinner in Mandalay in my book. Go check... More

We had a variety of dishes ranging from veggie tempura to veggie soup to veggie curry to cooked veggies to pork Curley to chicken curry. We ended with cooked... More

Came here today because of the splendid Lonely Planet rating and recommendations. We ordered "chicken curry with coconut milk burmese style" and wine. The food was so damn mediocre without any real flavour. Stuff was anything but attentive. My wine glass was dirty from the inside - far from polished -, so I told the waiter who taught me it...

I'm genuinely surprised by the mediocre reviews preceding this one and can only assume other diners' experiences were marred by the presence of large groups. We visited on our last night in Myanmar, there were no large groups and we loved Green Elephant. The garden setting, with incense coils, lanterns and candles was utterly romantic. The complimentary crackers and flavoursome... More

Went for lunch with guide clearly this place is designed for large tour groups not individuals like us Menu is very expensive for basic food I think we subsidise the tour groups who probably pay much less Menu is a con as it claims different types of cuisine but it is really all variants of Chinese style food Actual food...
