The Green Elephant Vegetarian Bistro was created in 2007 and opened as Portland’s premier haven for mindful dining. Established by chefs and owners Dan Sriprasert and Bob Wongsaichua, the Green Elephant offers to its friends and patrons a degree of culinary balance that is often elusive in today’s world; compassion and indulgence, health and gratification, food for vegetarians and carnivores alike.
The inspiration for our food began in Thailand and grew to include many Asian influences as Dan and Bob sought to bring a spirit of equality and inclusiveness to their menu. No borders. No hard lines. They united ingredients and flavors from Thailand, Malaysia, China and India into a meat-free menu with something for everyone.
The Green Elephant sources and provides as many local products as possible. We offer unique cocktails, local beers, a full wine list, hand-mixed teas, and coffee roasted locally.
We invite you to join us with your best formal attire or in your favorite pajamas as it is always our pleasure to provide you with our Asian-inspired vegetarian cuisine.
Made with love.
