Traditional Thai Cusine…..a dinner pick for a saturday night…Now Why would I refuse ?

Centered in Melbourne’s harbour coast >>>> authentic to the very nature of Thai’s coastal regions, giving you the taste of the purity behind the coconut.

Nine Elephants, a warm and cosy centered outlet set midst the bustle of docklands on the evening of a weekend, creating the ambiance of a spot of peacefulness is simply what sets out a cuisine that sets your buds on little tap dance. Keeping it to its very self, Nine Elephants sets itself apart, an authentic per serve basis dinner, that sits quite light on the taste buds for those who enjoy the calm moments, and on request,  pleasures those with like the idea of fiery redness.  Red Curried Beef, an absolute wonder… Blended to suit the taste-buds of those who like that hint of spice, dwelling into the sweetness of coconut milk, a combination that leaves very little back in the bowl, a perfect accompaniment of crispy roti severed with thickened satay sauce. Now, you can’t even deny yourself from such pleasure. The soft ambient lighting , cosy warmth, and the delightful cuisine – whats more to please a group of excited friends catching up on a cold Saturday’s night?

While offering a well featured menu, Nine Elephants can certainly work on its service levels. Probably, not the worst possibility of what one has to offer. However, definitely a spot worth working on, especially with regard to ensuring their barkeeper to know their wine….. Well, I suppose you can’t always expect the best…. Nevertheless, a definite experience worth a certain visit, and come on, its centered by the harbour, why wouldn’t you ?? Give it a shot =D
