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!

Value for money. Cheap, but not at the expense of quality. Very good food at a good price. Make sure you check out the ice cream...I will say no more.

I love this restaurant, as a resident of El Gouna on and off over a decade this remains to be my first choice place to eat. I can guarantee I will have a good meal as long as the place is not too busy. The food is fresh and plenty of choice from the menu even for a vegetarian as... More

Very tasty food in a friendly atmosphere. This is third year that we have visited the White Elephant and this year we made three visits. The first was at my wife's request and the second was at a request from my 14 year old son on his birthday. We even called in for some delicious Thai tea our last day... More

This is our third time in El Gouna and we always look forward to eating here. We have tried most things on the menu, but our favourites are the salads, the fresh mango juice, all red curries and the mango and sticky rice dessert. However, since everything is freshly prepared, things might take a bit longer than one might expect.... More

Well, I am a person who has been into spicy food all his life and I always used to complain at restaurants that it wasn't really spice after all despite what the menu says. "The White Elephant" definitely was a pleasant exception. My superb fresh and exotic red sea fish was as spicy as spicy could possibly get. Really up... More

Now it took soo... More

The food was very nice on our visit to this restaurant. The staff were lovely and very friendly. Definitely worth a visit, we will be going back on our return to El Gouna.

The food here is very good and if you like it spicy, this is the place. You can ask for dishes to be mild, medium or hot but beware hot is really hot but still the flavour floods through. The starters are rather large and may spoil the main course for some people. Good for sharing. Nice staff but no... More

Our 4th visit to El Gouna but 1st All Inclusive. Which meant that we ate out a few times but not as much as normal so we went back to the places we know are fantastic. High on the list was the Thai. We have ate here a number of times over the years and it was, as usual, to... More
