Thai Elephant Restaurant - Thai Restaurant/Takeaway
1 Town Hall Square, CF71 7DD

Vegans ordering food here should be very careful. Not all dishes labelled vegetarian are actually suitable, as the curry paste used in all the curry dishes and some of the stir fry dishes contains shrimp. They also use the same oil to deep fry meat and vegetables, so avoid anything that is deep fried and make sure any tofu in your dishes has not been deep fried.
