We used to live in Singapore and have traveled all over south east Asia and their food is awesome and very authentic. They have the best tea leaf salad I have ever had. They have many Thai dishes as well as some from Malaysia and the Philippines. My wife loves this place and the prices are very very reasonable.

Great Burmese food in a small restaurant. The tea leaves salad is one of the best salads I ever had. Rachel and her small team do a good job and it is always a pleasure to eat at the Green Elephant

We have eaten at the Green Elephant many times. The food is very interesting with items you do not see at any other restaurants. The green tea salad is awesome, chicken chili jam has a very unique and addicting aspect to it. Love the "drunken noodles. The owner of the restaurant is a one woman crew for the place. She... More

I only dined here for lunch, but I know the salad I had was very good. I'm not familiar with this type of food (Thai) so was limited in my choices.

This place is the best Thai around. Tucked away in a little strip mall doesnt hurt its business. The Thai Basil Chicken is good but the Ginger Salad is awesome. Everything tastes fresh and the owner is very nice with giving you suggestions.

This is a delicious creative menu. Since some dishes are thai, vietnamese or burmese; don't be shy in asking which dish should go with which, especially when eating family style. The chili jam chicken, and tea leaf salad are my favorites!!

This place is so great! The owner is such a sweet woman. Located in a strip mall, a little off the freeway, you would probably drive right by it. But it is worth a visit (or many)!!! Small town charm, and wonderful unique flavors. She recommends dishes to be paired together, always take her recommendations. Also, the vegetarian dishes are... More
