A very clean quiet cafe that serves both western and local foods. Staff are friendly and one doesn't have to wait too long for foods to be served. Foods are delicious and affortable. If you need a quieter place to get together to chit chat , this is the most ideal place.

Environment is nice and spacious(not crowded like other places). Thus, have more privacy and feel more comfortable. Lighting is just fine with beautiful decorations around. Love the elephants picture too. The mushroom soup is the taste of real mushroom, not artificial one. French fries need a lot of improvement(tasteless). Salmon and fish and chips are of average. Prices are reasonable... More

There is wide range of choice. The establishment is bigger than most as it took up two shoplot floor so it's really great for gathering with friends and family. The menu has nothing extra ordinary to offer though.

Price for meal has increased slightly over the years. Food a little too salty in general. Good atmosphere, not to quiet nor noisy. Good place for a family meal of course! Staff were all very friendly. Service could have been improved by clearing empty plates more quickly.

Foods are okay and I liked their mushroom soup most. Price is quite reasonable and the service is pretty okay. Worth a try.

I used to enjoy Elephant's and would come with friends regularly. Having always come away with a pleasant experience I decided to take my English fiancé here. Some issues. 1. A man and his wife and 2 noisy kids walked in. Prior to that it was only me and my fiance in the bistro. The said man was clearing his... More

Good western food, with good services. Was there for Mother's Day Dinner with the family, a big grp of 12, and all the food was correct. The pricing is quite reasonable for western food. Do make bookings, especially during occasions week.
