Description: 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!

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.

Visited of a evening for dinner, had a starter and a main meal. The meals were of good portions and freshly cooked. It seemed to be very popular with many people eating, the restaurant was very clean and service was exceptional. Thai meals, soups, rices, currys, highly recommended, oh! Good value.

You will definitely not regret eating here. Located in down town, the oldest part of El Gouna this authentic Thai restaurant has not only good food but really good prices. The food is not amazing but it's definitely good value for money spent. You do not need to reserve just show up. The service is prompt and friendly. So take... More

Great service, excellent food and reasonable prices. We liked this place so much that we came back, despite many other good offerings nearby that we wanted to try.

Try out the CURRIES! They are tasty and really good. The staff is a bit slowly, but still acceptable! All in all we can highly recommend White Elephant!

This restaurant has been a keen favourite of ours during our many stays in El Gouna. Prices seemed reasonable and food was good. But on this trip I have visited 3 times and on two occasion either my wife and I had a very poor meal, and the prices have almost doubled. When you try to point out the problem,... More

We visited this restaurant two years ago and returned during our recent holiday. It was just as good as last time. The food was delicious and particularly enjoyed the starters. A lovely restaurant with good service and reasonably priced.
