“Tasteless dish at 138 grams including the vegetables”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I ordered a No. 23 - Pad Nam Mun Hoay - at "Den Hvide Elefant" in Holte and received a dish of only 138 grams when the sauce and rice was removed. The rice was sticky and the sauce thin and tasteless.

I called and complained in the belief that it had to be a blunder, but got the response that it was not. They also refused to give me the money back and cut off the telephone connection. I have never experienced anything like this and will strongly advise against this takeaway place!

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

Took my parents out for dinner and to enjoy a nice spring evening.

Food was really tasty and not too spicy. We ordered pad Thai and green curry both very nice. Portions are pretty big (definitely enough) and price is fair for Denmark.

Service was excellent and staff extremely nice much better than danish standard.

Don't forget cash if you don't have a dankort.

Already been there twice and will definitely go back.

“Honest-to-goodness food at a reasonable price (for Denmark). You will need to pay with cash or Dankort.”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

I go to this restaurant about once per month and the food is consistently good. I suspect that the Thai recipes have been altered quite a bit to suit European tastes, but I don't mind and neither do friends and colleagues who I have taken there. The decor is very simple and is more like a café than a restaurant, but don't let that put you off. The service is excellent and always delivered with a smile.
The owner also has two take-away restaurants with the same name. I have tried the one in Holte and the food was just as good as the restaurant.

“order out or wait”
Reviewed 9 October 2010

Been to this place twice - it is a fairly good thai kitchen -but on a busy day you have to be patient... very patient... People ordering take-away have priority and it can be a little frustrating.
