THREE ELEPHANTS' JOURNEy
Opened in July 2019, at the heart of St Kilda in front of the grandeur of the old French Embassy with the vision to share the diversity and unique flavours of Sri Lankan food in Melbourne. Sri Lanka has culinary roots spanning more than 2500 years with ingredients selected for their medicinal, healing and nutritional properties. We pride ourselves to be able to offer the same wholesome meals whilst adding the Chef’s own variation and style to create new themes. Our unique blend of herbs and spices are made exclusively for Three Elephants and are ethically sourced. We also support Australian farmers and source all our fresh produce locally.
Story of chef Laki
Traditional Sri Lanka is rich in culture with culinary roots spanning more than 2500 years. Ancient wisdom is still present in lifestyle with most ingredients in food selected for their medicinal, healing and nutritional properties. The island nation has observed relentless upheavals throughout the ages with some influence on the country’s cuisine. At Three Elephants & Co, we offer the same diversity seen today and celebrated everywhere.
The seating capacity of 50 includes a lovely courtyard eagerly complementing the poise of the Embassy’s facade as well as the cosy indoor and dynamic street ambiences. Notable items in the menu are a section inspired by street food and a selection of wine that pairs well with the entree and main meals.

Through his cooking, Laki shared his childhood experience with the people of Birchip, which will always remain his second home. Laki carefully selects seasonal produce to create the most wholesome and flavoursome meals, adding his own variation and style to develop a truly unique experience. Three Elephants & Co is the beginning of a new journey.
