The restaurant serves both Burmese and Chinese food. We had the tea leaf salad, which was excellent. Also chicken with black beans and pumpkin chicken. The food was served quickly and was well prepared.

This place is trying to please too many cuisines, Burmese, Thai, and Chinese. The Chinese dishes are not done well, but it makes up the bulk of the lunch menu. I ordered the chicken curry off of the lunch menu (which seems to focus on Chinese food) and was not impressed. The lunch items come with a salad, soup, rice,... More

My friend and I came for dinner before going to a play at Lucie Stern. The restaurant is conveniently located in a strip mall, so there's ample parking. The hostess warmly welcomed us when we walked in and seated us almost immediately in the comfortable dining area in the midst of all kinds of diners (singles, families, couples, friends). The...

We have been going here for many years. The food is good and the service is great. Very friendly staff. Try the Tea leaf Salad and Chinese Sausage Fried Rice. Explore the menu! There is something for everyone! Spicy or not.

Lunch with a friend to celebrate CNY and the food and service was very good. I had chicken curry which was kind of bland to me and my friend had shrimp stir fry with cashews. The food was fresh and good just not spicy enough for me. Pinot Grigio was very cold which was excellent. Each meal was enough for... More

The stand out for us was the tea leaf salad. Otherwise, everything else was just okay. The spice level was good and the service was fine.

Enjoyed a remarkably tasty meal at Green Elephant Gourmet... the chicken and spicy garlic eggplant is highly recommended! The eggplant melted in my mouth, and the sauce was quite nice as well. it was truly exceeded my expectations. Service was quite good, and the meal was reasonably priced. Nothing fancy, however unless you're trying to impress, this is a great... More

This is a little gem. I've never sampled Burmese food and found the menu an exciting adventure. The decor is really lovely and the service superb. The food was good and the portions huge.

When you walk into The Green Elephant, you are greeted by a beautiful smilling Hostess and wait staff. The restraunt is tastefully decorated and comfortable. We have dined here several times and the food is always very good and nicely presented.
