It's a small restaurant at the end of a strip mall, but don't miss this gem. The owners know their Thai food. I love just about everything they make, especially the Panang Curry. It's pricey in my opinion, but the food is very good.

The food at Happy Elephant is, no doubt, delicious, but it is the owners that really make this place special. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. They explain food to you and also share their own stories with you. It is always a wonderful experience when you go here. We like it so much that we have actually asked to purchase kitchen items so we can have a piece of the restaurant at home with us. To date, I have a set of elephant salt and pepper shakers, and a boat from their appetizer plater. It is fitting that "happy" is in their name, since you will leave happy every time!

I had the pumkin seed crusted chicken that was delicous. The waitor was so nice and personable. Would highly recommend this restaurant. They have wooden elephants throughout the restaurant.

excellent thai food... ordered during a noon-hour rush that promised to be a bit of a wait. --went to my car in the parking lot to pass the time, checking something under the hood. talk about fast and friendly service! --in just minutes, barely time enough to give the engine a good look-see... practically running, the young, happy elephant lady came outside, all smiles, delivering my take-out order right into my hands.(!) never did that happen before. --anywhere. totally impressed with the personal touch, i returned several times more to enjoy other menu items, especially chicken dishes, always enjoyable, always prepared well. love that peanut sauce...! happy restaurant, happy customers!
