I highly recommend this place for many reasons. First of all the cuisine is top notch. I didn't have such a tasteful indian food in a long time and I am obsessed with Indian food! The ingredients are all fresh which gives the dishes the authentic flavours, menu is large and they have plenty to choose for everyone even if... More

Returning to Elevant after 2 years. I rember dining there well over 10 years ago, when they were in the same building but on street level. The room is modern/funky not the kind of Indian you see in UK. It was very pleasant, waitresses speak English and some Finnish. Portions were large, and my lamb was succulent. No need for... More

Elevant offers plenty of gluten free options and those are marked with G in their paper menus (but not online menus yet). The food is very tasty and the restaurant is very atmospheric and popular.

From my experience Elevant is really a nice restaurant with a big menu. Many dishes have photos so it`s much easier to choose what you want to have for dinner. Besides, Elevant has quiet pleasant atmosphere, nice staff and surely delicious cuisine!

From the dramatic entrance, up a spiral staircase, with amazing smells of Indian spices, into the cosy square room of the restaurant. We found the staff friendly, attentive and helpful. The food was fantastic, and we ate here two out of our three nights, which is quite high praise given the choice in Tallinn. A good selection of dishes, and... More

I really enjoyed going to Elevant, the service was very friendly and the food was awesome! They offer a wide variety of dishes and the price is not high.

Good Location in Tallin, you can eat quite a lot for relatively small price. We were 3, we had 3 good vegetarian curries with rice and were full in the end. Not that spicy. Also the bread is great.

Elevant was one of the first Indian restaurants in Tallinn. It used to be quite good. Now I had not been here for almost 3 years. It looks worn-out and it is worn-out. Menu has not changed. As there are several new Indian restaurants in Tallinn, this one is probably the worst. Even fast food chain CHI serves much better... More

it was one of my favourite lunch places in Tallinn. With its unusual interior design, good service and excellent food, it's worth every penny!
