Excellent food! We arrived just before they closed for lunch, but the service was still top notch. The beer was really cold, and the food amazing. Huge portions (I couldn't even finish my pad thai). The lamb pad thai was excellent - and a nice New Zealand touch. My husband loved the spicy crispy pork. 3 beers, 2 meals, and an appetizer for just under 100. For the quality it was well worth the cost. This is type of place you want to eat at more than once!

Wanting some good Thai food and going on the recommendations from other diners we went looking for this restaurant. It is a little hidden away off the main road but worth the effort to find it. The décor and the staff uniforms made you feel like you were back in Thailand. The entree of Thai prawn cakes and the Satay Chicken were both delightfully flavoured. The mains consisted of Tom Yum Soup and the Tamarind Prawns and they did not disappoint as they both tasted wonderful and there were no leftovers. The staff were very attentive and service was prompt. If in the area and wanting Authentic Thai Food make sure you dine here.

The food is scrumptious and the the staff are very patient and friendly. Welcoming atmosphere and moderate prices. In Auckand Central Blue Elephant is undoubtedly a must try.
