The atmosphere is nice, light is cozy and music is good. The only bad thing is the acoustic. We went there at 7pm, the restaurant was half full and we had to speak very loud to understand each other. The food is available in different grades of spicy. It's very delicious and you can choose between many different menu's, soups,... More

Have visited this restaurant a couple of times and the food has always been excellent. On the last visit had moose vindaloo which was perfectly cooked with just the right combination of spice, heat and flavour. Came with a small bowl of salad, rice and a naan that was a little different to what we are used to in the... More

Waited ages for anyone to take the food order. THe lighting in the room is so bad people using their phone lights to read the menu (tip... More

Very quiet but the food was delicious. Chicken pakora was very good and the lamb and cauliflower curry was very tasty. Nice atmosphere and the waiting staff were very nice.

I highly recommend this place for many reasons. First of all the cuisine is top notch. I didn't have such a tasteful indian food in a long time and I am obsessed with Indian food! The ingredients are all fresh which gives the dishes the authentic flavours, menu is large and they have plenty to choose for everyone even if... More

Returning to Elevant after 2 years. I rember dining there well over 10 years ago, when they were in the same building but on street level. The room is modern/funky not the kind of Indian you see in UK. It was very pleasant, waitresses speak English and some Finnish. Portions were large, and my lamb was succulent. No need for... More

Elevant offers plenty of gluten free options and those are marked with G in their paper menus (but not online menus yet). The food is very tasty and the restaurant is very atmospheric and popular.

From my experience Elevant is really a nice restaurant with a big menu. Many dishes have photos so it`s much easier to choose what you want to have for dinner. Besides, Elevant has quiet pleasant atmosphere, nice staff and surely delicious cuisine!

From the dramatic entrance, up a spiral staircase, with amazing smells of Indian spices, into the cosy square room of the restaurant. We found the staff friendly, attentive and helpful. The food was fantastic, and we ate here two out of our three nights, which is quite high praise given the choice in Tallinn. A good selection of dishes, and... More
