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!)

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

There are too many good things to say about this wonderful venue, but I must insist you try the Fried Ice cream. My son cannot go past without asking if we can just have it. And yes you can. On a hot day or evening there is nothing nicer than ice cream prepared in this special way. All the food... More

We're on a bit of a mission to get people to spend more time in and around downtown - and if you need a really good reason, then go to White Elephant. Authentic food, atmosphere and service; couldn't really ask for more. Well, you could - but you'd be disappointed. Seriously good value.

Was very impressed with the food, very authentic. The service was a little lack lustre but not a big deal as your on holiday so there's no real rush.

Really enjoyed the food here, very authentic and freshly made. Was a little bit disappointed with the service though. We seemed to wait for ages before anyone asked what we wanted to drink and were never asked if we wanted a dessert, so not sure if these were good or not. Would revisit just for the food but staff need... More

Not much to say about this restaurant. Its Thai and some Japanese. There is a Sushi menu. I had a three course meal consisting of a crab soufflé with pineapple dipping sauce. Not bad but fairly mundane. Main course was a good fresh made Thai red curry with prawns. I will say that this was properly made from scratch and... More

My husband and I always visit this restaurant when in El Gouna, as we really enjoy the food, and we were not disappointed on our last visit. The prices are very reasonable and the drinks prices are cheaper than in many other restaurants in the area. I love the fact that you can choose how spicy you would like your... More
