This place used to be one of the best Thai places in the area. The food and service have gone down considerably over the last couple of years. After a visit when we waited a long time to get our food, which was cold when it arrived, we said we would give it another chance. We went back the other... More

Grubhub messed up our order so I called the restaurant and I think I spoke to Nick? He was super helpful and got our food out to us right away. The green curry and the pad Thai was bomb. Plus he brought us two Thai teas to make up for it which I can't believe I'd never tried. The yellow... More

I had multiple times dinner at this place and also ordered take away but something changed. I wanted to get some take away. First the phone didn't work but I thought this is ok and I just drove there. But when I arrived it was kind of strange. Nobody greeted me and I saw a bunch of kids (I guess... More

Dear Friends who eat frequently at this Thai cuisine restaurant in Thousand Oaks, CA invited us to meet them. I met my husband there, and we plan to return based on the cuisine we ate, for example Tofu Curry. However, the big "elephant is the room" is slow, inept service. There is no question about Front-of-Room earnestness and wanting to... More

This is the second time eating here and it was even worst than the first. Horrible customer service (two ladies next to me waited 30 minutes and one of them still did not get her food...and it was the lunch special). They finally just got up and left after repeated attempts to get food. Our food did come out within... More

Hard to believe service this bad happened in California. The drinks order took 20 minutes and was wrong, one of the starters was forgotten and turned up 20 minutes after everyone else had finished thiers despite several reminders to the staff. One main course was delivered to the table well over half an hour before anyone else's turned up. We... More

We just ate at the White Elephant and our experience tonight was abominable. We have been regular patrons since we were introduced to this restaurant. In the past six months we have gone to this restaurant at least monthly. In the past six weeks we have had two experiences with terrible service - but tonight was incomprehensible. After waiting nearly... More

My husband and I shared the beef salad with a light dressing, a green curry chicken with snap peas and a great pad Thai with shrimp and chicken. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted so good we filled up fast and requested a doggy bag!

We had a variety of dishes and all were prepared very nicely and the food quality was excellent. The soups, curries, and the sticky rice were all very delicious. I would definitely go back again when in the area. Our servers and waitstaff were friendly and attentive. A very nice experience.
