One of the few contemporary Thai restaurants in the PJ vicinity – myElephant, by DooDee is cosy and normally packed to the rafters with young people and families as well. Its strategic location in PJ and free parking is a real bonus that has served myElephant well because eventhough this restaurant is no longer new, it can still pull an evening crowd. Maybe it’s the fact that the place is so cramped and short of space, that it looks perpetually full. Great marketing strategy I say!
Apparently, the Chef, Nikom is Thai. His hometown is Chiang Rai (northern thailand) and this in itself, is a big plus. It’s getting harder and harder to find Thai chefs in Thai restaurants these days if you ask me.
I find the Thai food just OK … Of course I have had better Thai cuizine but the convenience of location/parking (we being PJ folk ourselves) and the the affordable prices at myElephant, makes this place hard to resist for a mid-week, fuss-free, zippy, wholesome Thai dinner.
