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!

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.

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.
