We were recommended this restaurant for its good food, cheap price - and that it didn't make its patrons sick (other restaurants in Downtown El Gouna don't share that reputation!) I've seen it mentioned on other Trip Advisor postings as a recommendation for eating in El Gouna - would really recommend it as it was great food and very popular!

I had a massam curry which was nice the chicken cashew nuts could have done to have more nuts but other than that it was all very good. With 2... read more

Stooped off for a late dinner. Food was good and as requested (spicy hot). Bit slow to serve but no big deal as we had plenty of time. Will we go back? Yes!

We always eat here when we visit El Gouna. When we came on New Years Day, it was completely packed but luckily we got a table. The food was good enough, but some dishes just didn't have the flavors they usually had. The Tom Yam Soup tasted old and just reheated. The Red Curry was quite bland and tasteless. The... More

Since moving to Gouna, I've been trying a lot of restaurants & this one is my favourite so far. The chef is actually Thai, the staff are lovely, the food is so amazing, I crave it when I'm hungry. Highly recommend you try it out.

You can choose between Thai spicy and mild spicy. For me personnaly the mild version was even too spicy. Second course was less than mild (which I ordered). Without the spicy, it was a bit fade.
