I had been to the elephant royale a lot when it first opened and it used to be a really good experience. Staff used to be welcoming, friendly and eager to please. It is now the polar opposite! I'd booked a table for 9, they...More

The place is nice inside. The food was very tasty. However the staff were very busy and not very helpful!

The food was quite nice but a bit expensive. Also, it was not really authentic as it had a lot of carrots in it. The service was quite slow but all waiters were very nice and polute. Overall, nice restaurant and good food.

Beautiful decor and delicious food! Lunchtime deal a bargain. Friendly and swift service. Fresh fragrant and tasty food. I enjoyed my dining experience very much and I'm going back this Friday! Free parking around the back is a bonus!
