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!

Went to this restaurant last night. Despite being busy we were found a table. Prices very reasonable for El gouna. Portions not very big but very tasty. 3 levels of thai spice. Would visit again before we go home.

Excellent food, all served on time and hot. Everything was freshly made and tasty. Service was sometimes lacking and it wasn't that busy but otherwise very good and very reasonably priced. Would recommend and I believe from other travellers that it's the best Thai in El gouna!

Service very slow, you have to chase to order drinks and get menus The starters were very good, lovely The mains were disappointing, very hot, we ordered the food 'mild' and it was hot hot hot, when we commented on this we were told "this was Thai mild" I wouldn't go back here

The food is superb, excellently presented, and proved to be one of our favourite restaurants this year. My wife had spiced sizzling prawns that smoked and smouldered so much the waiter was forced to hold her plate as far away from himself as possible! I tucked into barbecued duck curry served with plain rice, and with deep fried bananas and... More
