Good place to have lunch in Docklands. Really tasty Thai at reasonable prices. Can be a little slow with service

Amazing food. The first dish I had here was the curry fried rice which turned out to be the best curry fried rice I ever had. Just delicious.

Small, but good food. Table was wobbly, easy fix that would make the experience better. Got basil dish. Even the very mild was petty hot! Glad I listened to the advice of the server. Would come here again!

Service was good. Gets some footy people after the game as it's located near Etihad, but it wasn't a rowdy bunch. Small restaurant, right at the end of the other restaurants in Village St, but worth the visit. Coconut prawns and soft shelled crab were delicious entrees. The massaman curry was also very good. Only dessert option is coconut icecream,... More

Celebrating the history making Melbourne win over St Kilda (first time in 14 matches). Situated in Village St, Nine Elephants is a fantastic find. At first it seemed the service was really slow, but the situation changed as soon as all the new guests were settled, things returned to acceptable. The food is great, tasty, hot, and you don't have... More

Sadly the restaurant lacked the atmosphere of other resturants we visited in Melbourne. We went about 7.00pm in the evening and only one other table was being used. Food was nice, but not spectacular. Service was excellent, so... More

Went to this restaurant after reading a trip advisor review. Rice paper rolls are a must must try. We had Pad Thai and red curry too. Beautiful ambience and great service. A must try place.

We often book Nine Elephants before we go to the football or a concert at Etihad. It is a quick walk from the stadium and the food is great! Definitely give it a go if you like great Thai food!
