We live in a little village 15 mins drive away and the other Chinese restaurants that deliver are poor to average. So it takes a bit of effort to drive to collect instead of getting a delivery but it is completely worth it. We have...had a takeaway from the Elephant about 3 times now and it has never let us down. Had one on Saturday (20/2/21) and it was amazing. With other takeaways there had always been one dish that fell short, one that was OK and the rest were good. Everything was spot on with the Elephant and we will continue to return and can hopefully eat in when covid permits. If they could deliver to Lidlington (even at a higher cost that I would happily pay) then it would make life that bit easier.More
We wanted a general Asian takeaway but had some bad experiences with takeaway deliveries in the past (we live in a village), so decided on The Elephant based on previous reviews. We called the restaurant directly and the service was very friendly and efficient. We...were given a delivery estimation time and it actually arrived 15 minutes earlier. I prefer that to the other way around so was impressed!
The food was still hot and great choice and portion sizes. Overall thoroughly enjoyed it and would go there again.More
I called on the phone and enquired about vegan food, the man on the phone clarified the meaning of the word and then assisted me with what I could order. We ordered 4 items for £17 at lunchtime for collection, it was ready in 20...minutes and when I arrived they were very friendly as I paid (non-contact for covid) and took the food. It took us about 15 minutes to get hoke but the food was still steaming hot and tasty when we plated up. Really really delicious food, the chips were amazing! Only one slight comment - I would’ve preferred a wetter chow mein but that’s likely personal preference. My father had chicken balls with sweet and sour sauce for £7 and the portion size was very good.
This is definitely my new Chinese takeaway!! And when things have settled later in the year from covid, I will certainly be attending the restaurant with friends. Thank you Elephant!More
First visit and may be our last the table we given was wobbly and the door wasn't closed propeley at the front even after the staff closed it so you can imagine froze to death all night long and quality of food didn't match the...ratingMore
We went to Elephant as a family and we had a really nice time. The restaurant was empty. The food was very delightful and mouthwatering. There was complimentary Prawn crackers. The restaurant was very clean and had a nice design. The staff were friendly and...kind. We didn’t not have to wait a lot for the food so that was nice and the food was absolutely delicious. It was a nice and calm atmosphere. This is the first time we went to this restaurant and we had a nice experience and we will be surely visiting there again.More
