I go there often. They have good pad thai, but I really like the drunken noodles. Don't ask me why they are drunk, but it's a great dish and you should try their egg rolls as well. It's a small family owned restaurant and the...More

I love this place. The baristas are great (one got second place in the Barista Contest), the coffee is made right and the atmosphere is very inviting.

Elephant Hut is named after a herd of elephants that King Mongkut of Thailand offered to President Lincoln during the Civil War. The restaurant presents a modern but authentic approach to royal Thai cuisine, served in an art gallery of paintings done by skilled Thai elephants. The menu is inspired by culinary wisdom found along Thailand’s Floating Markets, rivers and canals, where farmers and merchants sell produce and prepare foods from small wooden boats. The dishes are prepared with royal, street and boat recipes dating back to 18th century Bangkok. Picture an abundant farmer's market filled with home-made foods, vibrant flowers, and exotic fruits," said chef and owner Pi Kasemsant, who is a descendant of King Mongkut of the musical "The King and I" and the film "Anna and The King."
