Ok, recipes are ok, portions are for children and not quite good, however the worst thing is the owner, who he will not allow you to order what you like and he will keep pushing that you try pretty much the whole menu (see food is pre-cooked and he wants to sell even the ones that people do not choose). As a result the lamb order was bad and the meat was overcooked and the Chicken Masala was burned and we couldn't eat them. Once the owner asked us for our opinion and we addressed these issues, he told us that we where wrong and that this is the way that it suppose to be. A simple apology would have been sufficient.
Overall rating poor, better to get McDonalds and dip them in Curry sauce.

"Elephant pros": Real, delicious and up-to-the-point Indian food. No fast food. No popular "tex mex" solutions. No "ethnic cousine with local taste and feel". No fear of using the appropriate spice at the appropriate amount, for such cousine. Exotic touches, core authenticity, presentation mastery, careful pricing and surprisingly good portions.

"Red cons": Although cozy, the restaurant is somehow small and gets crowded very easily. Without misunderstanding their overall good will and friendliness, the staff sometimes oversteps in its humorous attitude.

What a nice surprise. Centrally located, easy access by metro, but a nightmare when arriving by car. No parking unfortunately. The food is a very well cooked version of Indian that wants to appeal to Greeks. I had a marvellous Spinach Saag Panee with a Manouri-like cheese. Lentils, lamb and rice were nice. The 2 Samosas per serving were huge and quite good. Overall a nice place to eat decent Indian that won't upset your stomach. The place is tiny - around 10 tables and very crowded. Be sure to book before you visit. I went on a Wednesday and barely got a table for two, in a very crowded and busy atmosphere.
