Tasty food and prompt service even though there was only one staff member on the floor and it was pretty busy. Highly recommend.

Family meal for hubby's birthday. Our 8yr old and 6yr old both really enjoyed their meals (had chicken/vege/cashew stir fry & phad thai) always a good night when all enjoy the meal. Didn't have to wait long, great service.

Lovely food! We tried both the chicken and vegetables fresh spring rolls, and for main a tofu massamun curry and chicken peanut sauce. Huge servings for the mains, and the curry had amazing flavour. Great service despite only having the one waitstaff on to cover multiple jobs.

We were welcome and seated in a table of our choice.
The service was very good. Staffs are friendly and obliging.
Our orders were served promptly. They were delicious and the dishes are generous in portion.
A good place to go to for good Thai food.
We will be back.

Was not very happy we were out celebrating my wife's Birthday
Service was okay when we walked in but then a Tour group come in and all focus was put on them then had to go to counter to order after sitting waiting for 15min
It was very cold inside we all had to keep our jackets on
Food was okay at the best

Food was good, green curry amazing! Decently priced too. Although we had to wait 20 mins just to be served and the restaurant was a quiet Sunday night, maybe under staffed?

The food was amazing as expected. We were the only diners in that early so we thought the staff would be reasonably attentive. Unfortunately they were very preoccupied with what appeared to be Uber eats orders. No one checked in after we received our meals and it was difficult to find someone to take our money at the end. Nor were we offered more drinks whilst we were there

Such a shame about the service cause the food was amazing

Service was great. The young man was fast, efficient and had great service especially looking after all the tables.
The food was very sweet. My pad thai was sweeter than usual.

The entree we had satay chicken and fresh spring rolls. Again, the satay sauce was a bit too sweet for my liking, however, the chicken was cooked perfectly. The fresh spring rolls were a tad messy, but loved the flavours and texture.

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 :)

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!
