This truly is a difficult place to find, and once you find it, you literally get led to a waiting room, not unlike a doctor's office. (Bring a book or cards, or take time to look at the menu and drool over what you'll order)....More

My first time trying Thai food. Was nervous thought it might be too spicy. I was so wrong. The food was awesome. They let you pick your spice level. I can’t say enough. So gooood. Must try. Weird location but well worth it.

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.

Stopped here based on good reviews. Was hard to find - inside low end Airporter Hotel with no external sign. They don’t need to advertise though - it was full (small). Thai food was excellent. We have eaten at many Thai places and this ranks...More

This little unassuming, hard to find restaurant is worth the extra time it takes to find it and get a table. It would be great if they did reservations- but they don’t so don’t go too hungry. My husband hates soups and gave the soup...More
