This restaurant is owned by a chef who has another Indian restaurant in Glenbrook. Even though both restaurants have identical menus the food at the Glenbrook restaurant is way better than the food that is served here. My advice is to give this one a miss and drive down to Glenbrook.

The food was hot and delicious. The portion sizes were good for what you ordered. And the service was quick and pleasant.

We visited on the night which another reviewer has commented was awful. I concur that the time frames were dreadful but we actually asked why and they were down one chef that night. We go there regularly and the service is usually informal but friendly and the food is delicious and well priced and the slowness of that night has... More

This was the worst restaurant experience we've ever had, anywhere. At least with our previous worst restaurant, we were given a meal, dreadful but a meal. You'll notice I haven't rated the food, I can't. After reading the range of Tripadvisor reviews of Blue Elephant we decided to try it, the poorer comments were some time ago. Our arrival made...

Highly recommend this restaurant! Food is AMAZING! Service was well run by 1 young lady all on her own. She was on top of it all as the restaurant was very busy with 2 large groups occupying 2 large tables and several couples at small tables. She is a credit to the restaurant as she remained calm, patient and polite... More

While this restaurant is not really at takeaway prices, it is good quality, good-tasting Indian, a nice restaurant for a dinner out or family events and very welcome in the rather non-ethnic style of restaurants of the area.

We ordered home delivery to our B & B and were told 25 minutes. An hour later it hadn't turned up so we phoned back to be told they were busy and that it would be around 10 minutes. We asked them to phone on arrival as we were in a back suite which was difficult to access. Hearing some... More

If you like good quality Inidan food, avoid this restaurant like the plague. We ordered takeaway a while back and one of the dishes was not one we had ordered. The food was acceptable but only just. But we though we would give them another go. This time the food was awful - tasteless slop. The prawns were clearly from... More

We dined here about 18 months previously and frankly were quite disappointed. At that time the service was ordinary and the food average. You can imagine how pleasantly surprised we were when we returned recently to find quite a different outcome. So different in fact that we have recommended the Blue Elephant to friends and family. The food was great... More
