This was our first visit having been drawn to the Green Elephant specifically for the pad Thai. Our dinner was absolutely terrific! The flavors were fresh and memorable and the service couldn't have been better. We'll be back soon.

Excellent thai fusion food. A must for every vegetarian. Very big menu, reasonably priced. Food is not very spicy and is very tasty

I've been a vegan and vegetarian for many years and The Green Elephant is possibly the best vegetarian restaurant I've ever eaten at.

The brussel sprouts were excellent. The asparagus salad was good though the bed of lettuce is probably not the best match for the fried asparagus. Would like to have had a diet soda option.

This is that perfect place from the setting, front of the house, wait-staff and kitchen. We might venture in once or twice per year, but it never disappoints on anything. Do get here as we have a habit of doing just before the dinner opening...More
