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!

Book the table 3 people to cover for my husband, me and our 15 months toddler. Upon entered, first notice the floor is sticky and the restaurant has a musty smell when walk in. We have ordered 3 dishes ( a red curry lamb shank, a beef cheek curry and a chicken pad Thai. The lamb shank was quite mild so even our toddler can eat it. While the meals was good but when I was paying the bill, I was told 1 of the non spicy dish( pad Thai) is not 50% off as it is ordered for my toddler so we have to pay full price. We actually shared all our dishes as my daughter can eat all except 1 dish. I am a little bit confuse with this condition as this is not specify any where.

After the meal I have contacted first table to clarify and found out that we have been overcharged. First table contacted the restaurant to clarify the situation also offer us $5 voucher for future booking. I am not satisfy with the offer as it is the restaurant that over charged us and we should be refunded with the over charge amount at the minimum. Have since message the restaurant again but received no reply at all. Very disappointed and never go back.

Really enjoyed the food. The restaurant itself is tucked away a bit, and not somewhere you would drive past and think l would like to try it, but now we have been, we would certainly go back.

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.

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 :)
