"Been coming to this restaurant for many years " ~ Dec 2013

Delicious food, good portion sizes. Clean and the staff are friendly. Can't wait for my next curry!

"Delicious " ~ Rosie, Nov 2013

We discovered Thai Elephant earlier this month and we made our 3rd visit recently. The food is delicious with good portions and it is very reasonably priced. The decor is very pleasant too. We would recommend Thai Elephant very highly and it is definitely the best restaurant in Street and Glastonbury.

"Superb " ~ Oct 2013

Back again with friends and we weren't disappointed! Have always liked Thai food and this place is really good, this time we all tried different dishes and it was well worth it. Some incredibly delicate flavours and superb service, just gets better each time!

"A feast for the senses " ~ MirLin, Oct 2013

I've visited this restaurant twice now and it has already become one of my favourites... I simply enjoy it so much! The tasty food, the sweet and friendly staff, the beautifully carved wooden tables with see-through glass tops and the many elephants and Buddha statues that give the space that extra ambiance are all a feast for the senses. Even the lamps formed like double-helix DNA strands caught my attention and were duly photographed. And it should also mean something that a world-famous actor living in the area also loves this place (as a framed photo on the wall will show), because he obviously has wide experience in restaurant-dining. Naturally one chooses a restaurant mainly for the food, and so it goes without saying that it is excellent here. I just happen to enjoy myself so much because of the whole "package deal" on an evening out, and am sure you will too.

"Excellent and reliable restaurant in Street " ~ Lyn and Dave, Sept 2013

We visited on two evenings this week with family groups and were not disappointed. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is good. All the food we had was excellent and the portions were good. The set meals are particularly good value if you have a good appetite. This restaurant is well worth a visit, you cannot do better in Street. It was busy on a Tuesday evening in mid September so it would be advisable to book.

"Gorgeous food" ~ Sept 2013

This is our fifth time here and can only praise the food quality! We really like Thai food and the flavours and choice here is superb. Friendly staff as well who really make you feel special. Very good establishment, one of the best in the area.

"Lovely place with great food and service" ~ Robin, Sept 2013

Called in to try their lunch 2 course special and was very happy I did. Really tasty and enjoyable lunch, asked for the Thai Green Curry to have extra fresh chillies and they got it spot on! The decor is interesting and gives a good feeling of the culture, although arriving late on a quiet lunchtime I felt comfortable and relaxed. Fresh and tasty lunch with a good wine at a reasonable price for the quality of everything. Will be returning soon to this very pleasing little restaurant for more fabulous Thai food.

"Authentic Thai" ~ Jilly, August 2013

We must go back having lived in Thailand - it has that feel of being there - the food is really good and plenty of it.

"Great meal and friendly staff" ~ Spike, August 2013

Visited here whilst visiting friends in Somerset. Had a lovely meal, with all dishes of a high standard and as described. Service was prompt, and the blonde waitress who spoke good English was very helpful. This was a Monday evening (albeit during the tourist season) and glad we booked as restaurant was packed. The best Thai meal we have had, and we enjoy Thai food. If you're in the area, well worth the trip.

80th birthday ~ Viv Grundy, July 2013

Thank you to everybody at the restaurant for a wonderful evening yesterday. It was my mums' 80th birthday party and 18 of us had an excellent evening! The food, service and staff were all excellent. I know that my mum had an evening she will never forget.

"Totally Tasty Thai" ~ Bishbashio, April 2013

I popped on to TA to get the 'phone number for the Thai Elephant because we had enjoyed it once before when late night shopping in Street…Absolutely no problem with the warm and friendly service - despite it being a very busy Saturday night. The chicken with chilli was too hot for my wife, but I loved it - she majored on the stir fried vegetables in ginger dish so was equally happy.. As per other reviews - Just Go!

"Excellent Flavours" ~ Twixeey, March 2013

We had the set lunch menu, good selection, and very pleasant staff, the food arrived quickly and was very well presented, what the chef can do with a slice of carrot was beautiful! Flavours were excellent

"Just Go" ~ NW, March 2013

Writing a review of a restaurant in little town that is fully booked on a Tuesday night seems somewhat unnecessary, so I'll keep this brief. The food is fantastic, the service is great. Just go. I've eaten a different meal every time I've visited, and it's always been delicious, and I can imagine it will be every time I go back as well. Get 15% off if you get a takeaway, or if you want in, remember to book in advance!

"Fantastic" ~ Caroline L, February 2013

What an amazing restaurant! Tucked away, unpretentious and yet superb! We booked, essential as they are very busy and had the best evening. Wonderful food first and foremost, a lovely atmosphere and friendly and helpful Thai staff. It really is the place to go around here. Not over expensive either - we'll be back!

"Thank you" ~ Olivia, Valentines Night, February 2013

Thank you so much. It was DELICIOUS!!!

"What an experience" ~ Caroline & Jimmy, January 2013

Decor, food, service and wine all perfect. Best place to eat locally by a long way. Take away is also a very good option. We eat here regularly and love every moment. Thanks Koti and staff.

"Fantastic" ~ Jo, January 2013

My colleague and I came on Monday the 7th January early evening, and once again the food, service and standard of everything was fantastic. Had such a lovely time again and look forward to coming back VERY soon.
