Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had dinner with a friend at this venue,after drinks nearby and is one of our favourites in this area. They have moved a few doors down from their old premises. I had chicken satay and the 9 elephants prawn fried rice and my friend...had the vegetarian fried rice. Their meals are full of flavour and when you ask for extra spicy they deliver the goods. We both love thai food served with extreme heat :)More

Its been a few years since we last dined at this Thai Restaurant. They have move a few shopfronts down the road from when I last visited. The food is always extremely tastey. I had the lunch time special of chicken stir fry noodles which...was delicious. I had some takeaway prawn fried rice and satay chicken which was also very good. This place is already busy so best to book as its not a large venue.More

The meal we had was quite nice, but it was definitely not the best Thai I have had. The meals were simple and did not have a lot of flavour. We were a little restricted on our choice of venue as a lot of places...in Docklands are were closed, some permanently. The Nine Elephants was convenient as we were stay almost next door. The staff were friendly and we were served quickly, the price was fair, but I don’t think I will be back.More

Pad see ew was quite salty but the beef was cooked to perfection. $16 which is a bit on the steep side, I guess.

Popular little restaurant with good, quick service. Good variety on the menu, pays to book when there is a concert on. Delicious, fresh fare, good priced wine too.

We were all rather hungry and ordered lots... Here are 3 dishes that met my expectations; - Green Chicken Curry - Fried Fish with Tamarind Sauce - Pad Thai (Vegetarian) Love that they reserved our normal table for us. Only little gripe, the servings were...all rather small.More

I have been dining at this restaurant for years and let me say it has amazing Thai food. 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 insects everywhere. Our group was constantly killing them and found them in our food. .I actually couldn't finish my meal. I was assured that they were not in the kitchen but coming through the front door? They were very good about this and replaced our meals with a freshly cooked meal for takeaway. Unfortunately it is with regret that I have to do an honest review even though its was a favourite eating place of ours.More

Quite a simple and small place that is known for Thai Food. Ordered Fish Cakes, Fried Rice and Spring Roll. Everything we ordered was decent, nothing exceptional though. Bookings would be great. Service was quick and efficient. Good options for Vegans and Vegetarians.

Good menu and well priced. The quality of the food was slightly above average for the "local Thai restaurant!!" Great location. Right op Marvel stadium and within the free tram zone. Great atmosphere in the village too. Will be back for sure.

It’s difficult to find the restaurant as it’s located in an office building. Surroundings was quiet and most shops are closed. Food is generally nice and authentic especially the nine elephants fried rice. Restaurant space is limited, so it’s usualy full.
