Reviews for Funky Elephant

There is something amazing happening on that little corner mall. I can't describe how delicious the food is, do one thing come and try it for yourself. If you are in the Berkeley area, it is an absolute must. Authentic, spicy, sweet , salty, simple yet full of flavor and complexity. I recommend you seat outside and try it fresh even if you must in the car, while they open their inside dining.

We had the Pad Thai - an over-cooked, grease congealed glop of noodles served with 2 shrimp past their prime. Nothing special or even tasty in this dish. We also had the beef which consisted of some slices of plain meat, a side of curry sauce, and some green leaves. No rice, nothing else. For the price, I would say this place was a big disappointment.

This was my favorite pad Thai spot end of 2019 to early 2020! However, I haven't been there in a while due to the pandemic. I was in the area and decided to try out their old school pad Thai and I have a feeling they changed the recipe or the chef because it didn't even taste remotely the same. It wasn't as saucy, tasted a bit too fishy and the portion size was a lot smaller. I was really disappointed because it was my favorite spot ever due to being super flavorful and a full review
