Local joint, very fresh food and enough to satisfy my friend and I. My very favorite is the pad Thai and the spring rolls.

Happy Elephant is my favorite Thai restaurant. Ning always cooks up delicious food whether you like the pad thai, fried rice or curry dishes. This is a small family restaurant with just a few tables, but it's always busy at lunch. It's by far the...More
