Hawaii Mom Blog: Red Elephant Thai Cuisine

Red Elephant Thai Cuisine

It's been a while since I've had Thai food, and I've been wanting to try Red Elephant ever since my Aunt recommended it about a year ago.   Big thanks to a friend who was willing to try it with me! 

It's pretty easy to find the restaurant - just look for a red-colored house on Waialae Avenue, between McDonald's and St. Louis School.  There's a small parking lot in the back of the house, and they have a sign outside indicating where to turn for the parking lot - it's right before the restaurant if you're heading East on Waialae Ave.  

The inside of the restaurant is very colorful and decorating with items from Thailand.  Why is there a piano? They have someone playing the piano a few nights a week. 

The food and service here is excellent. The two of us shared three dishes for lunch:

Fried Chicken Appetizer

Pad Thai with Shrimp

Mixed Vegetables with Chicken

The food came out quickly and the guy who served us was friendly.  I liked everything we ordered - the fried chicken came out hot and crispy. The Pad Thai was moist and noodles were soft. I really liked the gravy that the mixed veggies were prepared with. I wish I had ordered rice to soak up the sauce...

The place was empty when he dined here for lunch, but I'm thinking maybe it's more popular for dinner, so you may want to consider making a reservation for dinner just in case. There were a few customers who came in to pick up their takeout orders while we were here.  

I'd say this is one of the better places for Thai Food on Oahu.
