There is nothing not to like - great food, fair price, friendly staff. Packed by 6:30 on a Monday night says it all!

We started experimenting with a Vegan diet a month ago and are we happy to have found this restaurant !! You won't miss your favorite meat dish here.

Everything we ordered at Green Elephant for our recent dinner was excellent. In particular we enjoyed the Panang Curry with Tempeh, though the Peanut-sauced vegetables and tofu were a close second. Outstanding gluten-free options, and great service.

This restaurant really knows how to tie flavors together. A good restaurant is not about the components, it's about the end result and the flavor. Was skeptical going in but I really liked it. Service was really good too.
