Decent, but nowhere near what the reviews claim. I have eaten in many Thai restaurants in many different countries, the best I have found was in Denmark & Thailand. I can assure you that although their food is good, it's nothing exceptional. Limited choice of Thai foods, which is unfortunate. More asiatic (Chinese & Vietnamese) than Thai, in my opinion.

This Thai restaurant is easy to access on the way to Versailles Gardens. The food was average, but the service was unfortunately very unfriendly and arrogant. I had small flies on my salad leafs and the reaction was "Oh" and much later a whispered sorry while taking the plate away. But no intention to make up for it or anything.

l'elephant d'argent is my evergreen Thai in Paris and surroundings. Over the last 6 years I have regularly visited the restaurant on my visits to Paris and the quality has been consistently very good. It's a little gem tucked away in a side street off the main square in Versailles, but always full - every day of the week. So... More

I went with my office colleagues for lunch. The food was yummy and the spice & chilli level were totally kept under control. Quick service made it even better. Definitely recommended.

The food is pretty good but no flexible in menu. No Thai staff who can speak Thai language. Any way I give Overall 4 star!!

Been to this restaurant many times. Very tasty, properly spiced Thai food. Small restaurant, so need to book at busy times.

This Thai restaurant located in rue des deux portes is one of the most authentic in its area. It is mostly patronised by locals, who usually see a lot of value in IT. Booking here is essential, even during the week.

What a treat to find excellent Thai. Spicy, tangy, and full of flavor. Make a reservation, especially if you want outdoor seating. Nice ambience. Red curry was amazing!

We stopped for a lunch and enjoyed very nice Tai food. Please try the shrimp soup! Is little spicy, but you will love it! The seafood plate with basil and shallots is also very nice.
