Lunch with a friend to celebrate CNY and the food and service was very good. I had chicken curry which was kind of bland to me and my friend had shrimp stir fry with cashews. The food was fresh and good just not spicy enough for me. Pinot Grigio was very cold which was excellent. Each meal was enough for... More

The stand out for us was the tea leaf salad. Otherwise, everything else was just okay. The spice level was good and the service was fine.

The eggplant melted in my mouth, and the sauce was quite nice as well. it was truly exceeded my expectations. Service was quite good, and the meal was reasonably priced. Nothing fancy, however unless you're trying to impress, this is a great... More

This is a little gem. I've never sampled Burmese food and found the menu an exciting adventure. The decor is really lovely and the service superb. The food was good and the portions huge.

When you walk into The Green Elephant, you are greeted by a beautiful smilling Hostess and wait staff. The restraunt is tastefully decorated and comfortable. We have dined here several times and the food is always very good and nicely presented.

We ordered over the phone and they delivered meals for six people flawlessly. The owners are gracious and the food is superb. The size of the portions are very large, and while everyone ate their fill, we had quite a bit to refrigerate for another meal. Their menu offers a great variety of Chinese/Burmese dishes, all prepared perfectly. We have... More

Very pleasant mood and decor. The food was fresh, well seasoned and savory, with dishes that were not just the same old fare, but not too far off the deep end either. Excellent service.

This restaurant is a local favorite - food is satisfying, price is reasonable, and even my most discerning young eaters can find something they like on the menu. It has a Chinese and Burmese infused menu - my gluten-free favorite is the Singapore-Style Rice Noodle. Order takeaway or dine in - if you get a table near the emergency exit... More
