Featuring an extensive array of Veg-friendly Thai food!

At Thai Elephant in Tempe, you'll be hard-pressed to find more menu items at any Thai restaurant in the entire Phoenix metro area!

In fact, there's way too many menu items to list in the space provided here, but suffice to say there's no shortage of Veg-friendly items (each available with a tofu option) including such treats as eggplant, ginger, garlic, pineapple, fried rice, cashew nut, Thai peanut sauces, curry sauces, noodle dishes, soups, and more!; each with a wide assortment of Veggies.

There's also numerous appetizers (Veggie rolls, fried sweet potatoes, and corn cakes), as well innumerable salads.

Appetizers $4-$5
Soups/Salads $5-$9
Entrees $9 ($7 at lunch, and includes Veggie rolls)

A great, vegan friendly Thai place. I usually get a curry with tofu.

Wow...I felt like an elephant after eating here! I couldn't stop eating the yellow curry with tofu, it was so delish. Chunks of bright orange carrot, potato and tofu marinated in yellow curry and sweet coconut milk were a taste bud treat. I grudgingly shared this entree and the drunken noodles with tofu that the server finally allowed me to order "Thai hot" with my husband, who also loved both entrees. The thai hot was pretty spicy, but by no means unmanageable. We also ordered the appetizer combo plate (yes, thanks, very hungry), which had a fried corn potato cake and sweet potato something or other, complete with 4 different dipping sauces that all tasted fresh and unique. We dined with some carnivore friends who also loved the yellow curry, but with chicken. Service was attentive and helpful at explaining the menu items. Reasonable prices and nice ambiance...loved it!
