    Thai Elephant opens tomorrow in Santa Rosa Beach! It's in the old Enzo's location in the same shopping strip as the Post Office on 98. They had a ceremony with monks to bless the restaurant today with family and friends present. They are ready to welcome you with their hospitality and yummy food. Good luck to them in their new location and thanks for insisting that we stay for the buffet today. We were honored to be included.

    I've never been to a Thai buffet. Not sure I would want to. Love our Thai restaurants.

    This is the same great Thai Elephant restaurant that used to be in Miramar Beach--now relocated to Santa Rosa Beach. We used to make the trek to the Miramar location whenever our "need for Thai" overpowered us.

    My wife and I hit it today for a early dinner. I had their panang beef curry, and my wife was permitted to order "off the menu" for her favorite soup. Both dishes were (as we would expect from Thai Elephant) outstanding and pretty authentic. (I lived in Bangkok for about twelve months). I don't think we'll find better Thai on the Emerald Coast, and it's LOCAL....! While we were dining in, a number of other customers were dropping in to pick up their take-out orders.

    I'd recommend you give them a try--and be brave, go for "Thai hot.....Number 5!" (And if you don't understand the reference to #5....... go to the restaurant, and learn!) :)

    We just returned from dinner. Great to have good Thai nearby. The fluorescent lights are a bit much at night. Otherwise, good spot. It's small and almost every table taken.

    My wife had po taek. (I prefer tom yum, for Thai soup)

    We went again, this evening. Same great food. The chef indicated they use as much fresh produce--grown my local Thai families and local suppliers-- whenever they can. I believe them--very delicate freshness, flavoring and nuances in their soups and curries.......

    Holy vege
    Holy vegetables, Batman! We've been there. Good reasonable Thai food. A welcome addition to Sowal, for sure. The yellow curry is fantastic. Pad se ewe was ok. Still need to try some of their soups and other noodle dishes.

    Great dinner, glad to know there is a place to eat that is reasonably priced and quality food (tired of high priced tourist food eateries).
    Ordered Pad See-EW (yummy) & Pad-Pak both with chicken
    I would recommend a visit to Thai Elephant. I am going to try the lunch specials next time for $8.95. Same items as dinner but served with spring roll.

    We just ordered to-go..
    Fiancee ordered the panang:just chicken and greenbeans, no bell peppers..
    I ordered Thia beef salad, it was really good. But the only thing I don't recommend is the ice coffee, it was a day old.
