We saw all the great reviews on Trip Advisor so we decided to check out the Green Elephant and was not disappointed. All our meals were great. We don't normally go to vegetarian restaurants but I might going to more if they are like the Green Elephant. We went with a group of four and each person ordered something different and everyone loved their meal. Some of the meals they will ask you how spicy you want it, i would suggest getting it a little less spicy then you normally would.

We missed this place the first couple of times we visited Portland, but managed to catch it on a third visit. I had lunch with a colleague and it stood up to its rating/ranking/reputation. The food was good, tasty and felt different, in a nice way, from the same ol' same ol' Thai places. The service was quick, friendly, the ambience just right, definitely one for the vegetarians and Thai food lovers.

It was tasty. I am vegetarian, my boyfriend is not, but we both had a nice meal. There are options as to how spicy you want it. The atmosphere is nice. The quarters are a bit tight, especially if you go when it's busy. Couples and groups of no more than 3 maybe 4 could sit at one table. Nice staff. Parking is always hard for places on congress st.

All the options on the menu are for vegetarians. Imagine! This restaurant is always busy on the weekends so you should get there a little before six. Service is excellent and the flavors are smooth. A four-spice (the top spice range) is not very spicy, so go ahead and give it a try!
