Food was really good but service was questionable. We had a large group (26) so expected a bit of a wait but some of the waiters had a terrible attitude. A number of people waited for 20 min for chips even though curry on table. When asked where chips and naans were we were told if you don't like it... More

We are regulars at Baba Elephant. Why? The standard of food never changes, the staff don't change and the manager always makes us feel special. If you go at five thirty you can choose an 'early bird' special and it's well worth it. Not too expensive if you go later! Try it!

There were three male members of staff serving, and the standard of care and efficiency was very poor. There was a young lady who carried out her duties promptly and with a smile, but the male waiters looked as if they were doing the job as a punishment: grudgingly and dour. Although the food was OK the service was such... More

Four of us were here last week & we had the 'Specials Menu' The food was average. We were served quickly by a very solemn waiter. The prices are very reasonable. Not a place I would particularly recommend.

To start positively the choice and quality of the food was very good with a number of speciality dishes to keep the interest for return visits. However, it is a big restaurant, which didn't have the intimacy or atmosphere of most Indian restaurants. Loud music at times, noisy conversation and uncontrolled children running around adding to the whirlwind flow of... More
