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!

Friendly service, good food for good price

we enjoyed the place very much it had many vegetarian options and a nice range of appetizers that are worth the money. It's a very good place to dine and the price range allows that one tries many things and pays the same amount that you could pay in other restaurants. We liked very much the... read more

Good was great, and cooked within 15 minutes of us ordering. We ordered a selection on spring rolls, wantons and chicken satay to compliment our meal. For mains we ordered a beef green curry and chicken noodles in a coconut sauce. Very tasty meal. A little bit expensive for takeaway but we're on holiday so it doesn't matter.

One of our regular favourites: whether starting with a soup or with a salad, whether going for one of their various curries or whether opting for a sweet and sour dish, we've never been disappointed! You decide on how spicy you want your dish (even for a very spicy lover, medium is fine: it will live you up without putting... More

We ordered take away from the White Elephant Thai restaurant and the food we received was absolutely delicious (only it didn't match what was on the menu).. To be fair we ordered using numbers assigned on the menu rather than pronouncing the name of the dish over the phone and as it turns out the take away menus are somewhat... More
