We have never been disappointed. The setting and location is very good. We seldom go to Indian restaurants back in California, however this is better than we normally get. The food is from 3 areas in India; Deli Punjab and Mumbai

Came here for drinks only before we ate at Thai next door. The entire staff treated us like royalty. Very pleasant, got seated and served immediately. Specialty martinis, beers and bottles of water. All very good. We would be back.

The only reason why this place is getting a 2 rating is because of the ambiance and the waiter was very nice. However, the portions are ridiculously small and very overpriced. We got the cheese nan bread, and one order only comes with 2 pieces!...More

Description
Inspired on the culture, architecture and mainly on the Indian gastronomy, Elefanta restaurant was created. Bringing a bit of the magic and misticism of this place, in fusion with a modern city, the Elefanta Indian Cuisine concept was originated. With the service of our chef, Basant Kumar and other indian borned members of this team, we offer an exotic culinary delight, in a very authentic and special place. The restaurant has two tandoor ovens, typical from India, that brings to your palate the unique and exquisite flavors from our kitchen.
