Unfortunately this establishment did not meet our expectations . The staff is incredible which is why I’m rating it 4 instead of a 2-3. If you want excellent service in a nice atmosphere this is your place . If your looking for 5 star foods keep looking . The food was overcooked and our bread was at least days old . The bartender made my first martini with gin instead of my premium vodka I ordered . When my husband returned it the bartender stated they were out of kettle one vodka. ( so he made it with gin? ) Not that big of a deal but when it’s over 12 .00 US dollars you want it made correct . By the 3rd attempt at trying to get it right . We finally moved our seat to the bar so we could help instruct them on the proper mix .

Fusion food restaurant... different menu and staff is kind enough to explain you the dishes... Take your time and understand the menu before you order... ambience is good..price is a bit high though...overall, great experience...

Flying elephant once used to be the most favorite hangout spots for Friday's and Saturdays. Most recent experience was too bad. We asked a private table as I stay at this place quite often, this was refused abruptly quoting that it's a club night and that outside seating is not allowed because of the crowd.To my surprise I found that we were the only crowd of people on that night literally no one else was n the bar. I went and asked the manager if now we can sit outside, again he said people will come this was 11 in the night . By this time just not even one person had come to this place. Coming to the food the menu has changed and the quantity of food has drastically reduced. They seem to have revisited the whole drinks menu with the pricing higher by 10% compared to 2019. The staff used to be friendly and dynamic which has changed now.

You can spend your whole evening with your friends or alone just getting along with the vibe of it. Dancing space is bit cramped. otherwise, it's wonderful. Pocket friendly too.

Everytime I eat here, have been treated like family, sometimes better than my family would. Always feel welcome, and a good place to unwind after a stressful day. Chefs are attentive, and will aim to get your food exactly how you ask, and have never let me down. Loads of variety and multiple cuisines to try. The flying elephant is well managed, and among the best trained and professional staff of any restaurant I've experienced.Thank you once again for making my birthday evening memorable.
