i do a fair amount of traveling and always try to search out good Thai food. This place has really good Thai food. The portions are large and everything is very fresh. My favorite is the basil with chicken. I have eaten 2x i the past few weeks and have zero complaints.

We ordered: Thai Basil Chicken, Spring Rolls, Tom Kha Soup, Shrimp Green Curry, Chicken Pad Thai, and Wonton Soup. Our favorites were the Green Curry and the Wonton Soup. Everything else was decent in my opinion...everyone enjoyed their food. We... More

This place just moved from Miramar Beach to Santa Rosa Beach, FL and we are glad they did. We finally got back into town after being gone on vacation and had to try Thai Elephant. We shared the Green Curry with Chicken and the Pad Thai with Chicken. Both were the best we have had anywhere on the Panhandle. The... More

Yum! Awesome Pad Thai! Great place for locals to eat away from 30A craziness. Delicious Red Curry Vegetable as well! I can't wait to go back and try some more!

Fantastic restaurant for locals/tourists. Family cooking Thai food. Prices very reasonable and not tourist prices. Being a visitor to Destin, we saw the restaurant driving along Highway 98 to and from Panama city beach. If you don't like the sweet thai sauce on the pad thai noodles or other dishes, tell your server so they can vary the sweetness for... More

So I normally test a Thai restaurant by the Pad Thai - but I am stuck on the Green Curry. Really great flavor. Been here to the new location twice in 2 weeks

Very friendly and good food but a bit limited in the selections. My grilled vegetables were served drowning in a soy sauce like juice, the tofu was not stir fried but rather tasted previously friend then placed in my dish, it was cold too and overall not appealing. I ordered medium spicy and that came out right but the dish... More

BEST COCONUT SOUP EVER! This place has incredible thai food! Everything I've ever had here is delicious! I eat here often with my boyfriend & my friends. They will do almost anything you want & they can make anything vegetarian. Very very friendly staff. Highly recommended!

This place turned me onto Thai food. Great food! I liked the spicy level on 3. My wife liked a 1 or 2. I have gotten Thai hot (5) and I was crying
