    Busy place so need to book, food is very good as is the service. nice atmosphere and would go again. Only slight criticism is it felt a bit rushed and they were very keen to close the kitchen and take last orders far too early

    4 of us had a great meal here, much better than a recent visit to another local Thai restaurant. Food was fresh, tasty and lots of variety. We had visited before a few times prior to covid and good to see it has survived and is still very good. Will be coming back

    Nice ambience but we saw two waiting staff eat something they’d bought from Morrisons and snack at it before serving food. Didn’t wash hands after so not a great look right in front of diners too.

    We had a table for 4. We thoroughly enjoyed our food and wine here!! Really great!! But kind of felt a little stared at when we order 5 starters and only three mains along with rice and noodles! Then we were asked more less to leave as soon as we were done as they had other customers waiting. Thought this was a little rude. Didn’t want to to ask for dessert. Overall it was a very enjoyable evening and the food was awesome! I would definitely recommend the food it was delicious.

From the moment we arrived we felt welcome, the food was amazing and the service was fab too. We didn’t feel rushed at any point, and the staff we friendly and accommodating. Couldn’t recommend more! We will be back soon!

    A lovely cozy atmosphere at this Thai restaurant. The food was excellent - we shared the satay chicken, thai fishcakes, prawn toast and ribs. Followed by Thai green curry with chicken and a delicious beef ginger dish. It was a birthday so we had a complimentary ice cream sundae! Service is very good. Excellent value ! I would highly recommend this place.

    We were greeted with a very friendly local young man (whose name I cannot remember) who seated us by the window we waded through lots of ceiling and artifacts of Thailand even a part of an old Tuk Tuk on the wall before being seated, my food, Thai Green Chicken Curry was spot on, my friend had the noodles but was feeling a little poorly so probably couldn't give an honest review on her food. but overall it was nice and we would come back, although the restaurant was a little tired and could benefit from a little upgrade

    We asked to move to another table away from the door as it was draughty but this didn’t happen despite some tables being available. Food very good but my wife probably made the wrong choice as it was a little too hot for her taste

    It was our first visit to 9 elephants and we decided to go for my partner’s birthday as it looked good online.The decor is great and despite being a Sunday evening there was a good atmosphere. The food was delicious and the presentation beautiful and we really enjoyed our meals. Service was very attentive so all-in-all a great evening out. It’s definitely somewhere we will revisit and we will recommend it to friends and family.
