“Great Food”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

Called in on way from airport . It was a Wednesday evening and we were the only people in the restaurant. It was warm and the staff were so friendly. We both had starters and this place does cook the food well . Mains were great. Will be back. Not the cheap Chinese places , this place is a bit special.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Absolutely amazing, I love thai food and have been to many different thai restaurants....this is up there with the best! The food was superb, each dish was packed full of flavours and cooked to perfection. Service was faultless and the waiter was very friendly. Would highly recommend to anyone.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Your first experience of the Thai hospitality and politeness offered by the Chang Thong ( Golden Elephant) would be to look at their home website. They describe themselves as one of only a few authentic Thai restaurants in Northern Ireland. In actual fact, they are THE ONLY authentic Thai restaurant offering a large and tasty menu. Nothing will disappoint. UK users who have been to Thailand before will love the real taste of Thailand and bring happy memories flooding back. Don't be shy, try something different that you have not tasted before and you will be very pleasantly surprised. At this website I have read a review which stated that this restaurant was to be avoided because it was not the real taste. Apparently the reviewer had been to Thailand before. Actually I think the reviewer ate only McDs and KFC when he was in Thailand, he cannot know true Thai food if he eats it. As a regular visitor to this restaurant and as someone who has made a few more Thai friends by being there, I can only say that the Golden Elephant is a unique and lovely place to dine. Ohhhh, and yes I have been to Thailand too - I live there, but visit my home town of Belfast very frequently. Go try it, enjoy it and revisit as many times as you can.
