The chef and staff are wonderful! Friendly, quick service, personal and introduced themselves to me! The food was excellent and tasted just like a home cooked meal. I devoured it! Just the right amount of spice and heat and so satisfying. Can’t wait to eat at big elephant again!

Absolutely incredible, flavors and spices were seriously top tier. From the first to the last bite you can tell the time put into perfecting an authentic, delicious meal—nothing was dry and the meat fell straight off the bone. I have always wanted to find a family owned and operated Indian cuisine and I’m glad I stopped by, well worth it to stop by even if you’re just a tad hungry and grab a samosa (best I’ve had) or their rice and lentil sides. I hope people appreciate them as much as I do, and to the chef - never stop or change anything for the chicken masala. I can tell the love that went into making it.

I will start by saying that I am not vegan or vegetarian. Many places just take meat out of the recipe and call it good, when it really is just missing something. And nothing makes me want to eat it less than fake meat made out if vegetables and gluten. Big Elephant serves meat and vegan entrees, but I want to talk about the vegan menu. These vegetables are the stars of the show! The jackfruit curry, the spicy eggplant, the cucumber salad/garnish...i finish my lunch and immediately begin thinking about how much I would like MORE Big Elephant Vegan for dinner. And what I will order next week for lunch. I wish I were kidding. If the more people made vegan food this good, more people would love vegan food. Eventually, I may get around to trying a meat entree. But right now I enjoy looking forward to eating my veggies. Thanks, Big Elephant! See ya next week!
