What a pleasure! Wonderful vegan wine. Possibly the best chocolate dessert I've ever eaten--Chocolate Orange Mousse Pie, and my husband loved the sorbet trio. We weren't in the mood for anything too spicy, so the steamed veggies with peanut sauce really fit the bill. The decor was very pleasant, the service was outstanding, and the restaurant quickly filled with a variety of people having a wonderful time. I was worried about finding good vegan food in Portland--I didn't need to worry. Three cheers, Green Elephant!

New all-vegetarian restaurant in easy walking distance from anywhere in downtown Portland. Has received many enthusiastic reviews. I find the food pleasant, but a little boring and not incredibly flavorful. The curries (so-called) are not spicy at all. It probably appeals to a wider crowd by being mild, and one is glad and grateful for any vegetarian restaurant in this town, after all. Entree portions are nice and large. Dessert portions are far too small and I can make better vegan cheesecake than that at home. Overall I recommend the soy nuggets appetizer and the peanut curry.
