Docklands is, unfortunately, a bit of a dead area. However, there seem to be a few excellent restaurants that are hidden down this neck of the woods that make it worth going to. Nine Elephants is one of them. Positives: The food. I tend to always try and find something strange to eat, and the 'Nine Elephants Spaghetti' certainly looked... More

Food at 9 elephants is excellent with plenty of choice - they can even modify most dishes to suit all your dietary requirements. Service is good and fast and the set up is welcoming. Only reason for a 4 star rating instead of 5 is the seating. They have a lot of smaller tables and it looks like they've done... More

We stayed around the corner and had takeaway from Nine Elephants. Food was good and the restaurant looked like it might be also good to visit.

We read a few reviews about this restaurant, particularly the rice dish. We were not disappointed. Our meal was amazing and the special rice was amazing. We will return. Great food and value for money.

A real boutique and authentic Thai restaurant unit located in what seems to in a quiet street. Luckily we made reservations as the place was full and busy when we got there. The dishes ordered were mild but spicy for our taste buds. This is no joke as colleagues who would normally enjoy a spicy meal also commented if not... More

This restaurant was absolutely lovely. The food was to die for, so tasty and I took the advise of ordering the Nine Elephant fried rice from another reviewer. Best advice thankyou so much, it was delicious. My husband and I enjoyed it very much and will be returning. The only small criticism we did have was the waitresses need to... More

A friend and I dropped in for lunch as I was going overseas for 3 weeks. We both had the Basil, Garlic, Chili Pork Stir Fry with Jasmine Rice. This was a lunch special for $13. We both also enjoyed a Draught Singha Beer for $5 each. The Thai girls at this venue are very friendly and know us from... More
