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!

Excellent thai food and staff is helpfully recommending dishes. Always best place for us to visit or take away. Lucky to live in the same neighbourhood. Price is feasable and tastes are delicious.

The White Elephant is a sweet restaurant downtown El Gouna. The food is always tasty, fresh and healthy. The staff are wonderful and very attentive to your requests. I have never had a bad experience yet :-) The last meal I had was No: 28 Kai-Phat_Met_Mamuang..... Chicken and cashew nut..... DELICIOUS (80 Le)

Have been at the restaurant a couple of days ago. Amazing, extremely knowledgeable waiter with the skills of continuous service.
