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

This is the only place my family ever goes for Thai food! Haven't had any other Thai since finding this gem! Everything we have tried on the menu has been excellent! Favourite dish is the Penang curry and pad Thai, and drunken noodles, and garlic...More

Great food, lots and all for a reasonable price. A little loud in the small venue but I can see why this place has lots of positive reviews and rewards. Hard to find but worth the hunt.

The food is magnificent: the Orange Chicken was a major hit, the Red Eggplant Prawn was scrumptious, while the Pad Se-Ew Beef just melted in your mouth. Even the coconut rice was considered a triumph. White Elephant is located in the back of a motel....More

We found the White Elephant Thai restaurant by accident. It is a small family run business hidden in the travellers Inn. It is only open from 5-830pm and every table was full when we got there. Service is attentive and the food was spectacular. Portions...More
