This was my favourite Thai place in Calgary. I have been the many times but not in the last couple of years. I took my wife and sister there for their birthdays and was disappointed in the service and some of the food. Before the...More

Food maybe the best Thai food in Calgary BUT... service is still pretty bad, food takes (quite) a while to arrive, no reservations, it's CASH ONLY, and you need to get in early... it fills up FAST! I would recommend it more for take-out.

This has got to be one of the most inauspicious-looking restaurants in Calgary. But...but, such good food, such welcoming service. And good value, too. The place does not take reservations. And it is cash-only. It is the kind of place you want to keep coming...More

My first time trying Thai food. Was nervous thought it might be too spicy. I was so wrong. The food was awesome. They let you pick your spice level. I can’t say enough. So gooood. Must try. Weird location but well worth it.

Went as three couples yesterday, this is is by far the best Thai food we have ever had. Fantastic taste, good portions, great service, nothing wrong. Wish they took reservations! We will definitely visit the White Elephant again.

We absolutely love the food here and haven't ordered from any other Thai restaurant since we found this gem. The staff are really friendly and sweet as well. I've ordered the vast majority of the menu here and it's all been fantastic. If you don't...More
