Very nice food especially the crackers which were done freshly on the day. Beef satay and fish cakes were delicious. We enjoyed the appetizers more than the main dish.

We visited Elgouna for the 11th time in January - each time we visit we eat in the White Elephant and have always had great food - the two visits this holiday did not disappoint. This time the menus had changed so we took a while to decide what to have because we usually try to select something different and... More

Everytime we come to Gouna, we stop here to eat Thai food. It has always consistently been good for us. However, this time, the most-loved dish that we always get, the Larb Gai salad (ground minced chicken with spices and cilantro) was different. The ground chicken was not just chopped up, but it was actually a bit old and mushy... More

The food is absolutely amazing. We had a seafood and chicken tom yum soup each along with a portion of Thai fish cakes - 6 huge fishcakes that are a meal in itself and are better than any tasted in Thailand! For mains we had fish lightly tempura battered nada chicken green curry with sticky rice. What really impressed us... More

The food here is good, the service is friendly but a bit confused. There are cats jumping on the table, they were a bit annoying, otherwise it was a good place to eat.

Had dinner in that restaurant, prices are reasonable for El Gouna, dishes are in around the 40s EGP with few dishes around the 70s. The food was delicious and the service was very good. Portions are average. The restaurant is owned and operated by Thai people.

We were recommended this restaurant by a couple we met on the plane who own an apartment in Abu Tig Marina. The waiters were wonderfully attentive and explained about the chef being Thai. The menu is not too extensive like other restaurants Downtown and offers truly great Thai food. Their food tends to be on the spicy side, which is... More

We were recently on holiday in El Gouna and went to this restaurant and it was really great. The food was very good and the service was excellent with friendly and helpful staff. I will definitely go back when I go to El Gouna again!
