I have been dining at this restaurant for years and let me say it has amazing thai food with real spice. A few weeks ago I had the nine elephants fried rice which was amazing and contained delicious crispy pork belly. This is the first time it happened but at lunch time on Friday there were small flies everywhere. Our... More

A bit out of the way in Docklands but this place serves great Thai food and we've eaten enough to compare.Very busy at lunchtime so book or you'll miss out. Staff very friendly but can be a bit flaky when under pressure.

Even though this place is hidden away it is well located in Docklands on the CBD fringe. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. You can choose your level of spiciness the food is delicious.

A group of us were on a business trip and wanted to find somewhere to eat on a weekday evening, close to our hotel. We didn't book - but no problem at all. We were seated without delay and served drinks in no time at all. We chose the banquet for 3, as it gave us lots of choice -... More

Seven of us on a tour of Australia staying in Melbourne, decided to try "Nine Elephants" for dinner. Not only was the food good, but they allowed separate checks for the two couples and individual checks for the three other people. They were very accommodating with everything and we were all appreciative of the positive attitude and the food.

Great Thai here. Lovely curry and stir fry. Not too oily or sweet and generous servings. Great price too. We will be back. Booking recommended. People were turned away due to being full during our meal. You've been warned!

Was heading to Etihad for Australia - Japan match & wanted something near stadium. Was pleasantly surprised by very fresh, tasty food in pleasant small restaurant - as opposed to the packed out mega joints nearby. Beef mussaman curry very tender and crispy pork belly with veg & basil nicely spicy. Well worth is it if you're in that part... More

I ordered take away and I found the food to be very, very good. The Tom Yum was an excellent mixture of hot and spices. So many flavours without being over powering. The Larb Gai was also an excellent combination of tastes and I recommend it to anyone who likes that extra chili hit. Thank you.

Stayed nearby and got takeaway. It was truely awful. Ordered a pork belly Thai salad - it was scraps of lettuce with diced, deep fried pork (inedible) - not nice, definitely not authentic. The prawn cakes were crumbed and deep fried (also inedible). Rice dish was ok, but again had hard bits of deep fried pork in it and it... More
