Reviews

Nice atmosphere with Thai deco.
Food was reasonably good but the quantity was small. It would be nicer if the taste was not that sweet as we asked less sugar.

The food is AMAZING! Best Thai food I’ve ever eaten! Will always recommend the Red Curry! Service was a little lacking bc the waitress seemed new and inexperienced but the food compensated for it! Also the satay chicken is a must-try entree :)

Spur of the moment decision to try out a new restaurant but wow was it worth it!!!!
We were blown away by the quality of the food and the warm friendly atmosphere which was enhanced by the decor and the lovely front of house staff member
We will most definitely be back with friends to work our way through the menu

Out of the 4 dishes we ordered the Tom Yam soup were divine enough spice and heat to warm you.The beef cheeks is tasty but the green curry beef was too sweet and the roast duck red curry was a let down.

Really tasty food and staff were friendly and helpful. Google maps was a bit misleading but the location is easy to find behind Dennys.

We were there at 5.30 and there was a constant flow of people coming in so other people obviously knew about this place long before us. Good value.

I would definitely recommend the Red Elephant! The service was amazing and our waitress was very helpful and friendly. We were very impressed with the food also - we often eat at Thai restaurants but I have to say this is the best one I’ve been too. The only downside was that they played the same song on repeat the entire time we were there, which got in our heads a bit but it was well worth it for the great food

Catching up with a colleague at Red Elephant was great cause the 5.30 booking is ideal for those who work until 5pm. The service was pleasant and efficient throughout and the food delicious - a return visit is on the cards!

Food was good, but I was expecting better with the reviews I had read. Was a little cold in there as well. The small staff managed well with the busy groups of bookings on the night. Overall, I would probably go back, but not rush back there.

On a cold windy afternoon the Red Elephant offered a superb dining experience. The service was quick and attentive; our drinks and meals arrived quickly and were so tasty and presented beautifully. The restaurant was almost full when we left - and no wonder. A great dinner for Father's Day!

Wow just wow, traditional Thai setting that felt very welcoming and the flavours of traditional Thai food really satisfied the taste buds. We had a wonderful meal and experience at The Red Elephant, the service was top notch and the food was out fast and tasted delicious. The meals were larger than the portion size I get other places so this was also a win too. Being a mum for the first time and not getting out much I truly enjoyed my dinner and highly recommend this place.
