[Review] Smile Elephant Kapitolyo


Smile Elephant is a Thai restaurant located at W. Capitol Drive, Kapitolyo, Pasig. This humble and unassuming restaurant beside an emission center offers great and authentic Thai flavors. If you're craving for Thai or wanted to try something new, you won't be disappointed!

What we had that night:


Fresh spring rolls (₱185)
I love the rolls but the dip not so much. I think I like the Vietnamese version better haha.


Pad Thai (₱225)
Aaaah long time to Pad Thai! A lot of people say their Pad Thai is already very authentic, but the one I had from Thai Curry House (Minnesota, US) is still tons better. Maybe because this one has too much togue and scrambled egg hehe. Don't get me wrong ha, this one's very delicious din naman. 8/10


Lemongrass chicken (₱205)
Good thing we dared! It looks sooo unappealing on the menu. I almost thought they're crickets. But holey moley this one's delicious. It has real dried lemongrass sticks fried along with the chicken and the flavor is just really really great. Haha. Just don't mind how it looks. 9/10


Grilled pork neck (₱230)
Not a fan of grilled things but the hint of cilantro on this one made me change my mind. My husband didn't like the cilantro though! 7/10


Mango sticky rice (₱110)
I would've liked this but it's warm and the mangoes aren't sweet. 6/10

We also ordered Pandan tea (₱80) and it was okay. Lasang pandan gulaman haha. Not gonna rate haha

Will I come back? Yes for Lemongrass Chicken, Pad Thai! Would want to try their Tom Yum soup and Thai Milk Tea as well! :D

They only accept cash payments and have no service charge, yey!
