We were very disappointed. The food was ok but the service very poor. All the other restaurants we have visited have been excellent & the staff very friendly so this came as a bit of a shock. Have had better Thai food back home : (

This restaurant always delivers the goods. Beautiful, tasty Thai food at very reasonable prices, and we liked it so much we went back for a 2nd visit within a few days.

The White Elephant in El Gouna serves the most delicious Thai food and is such good value for money.
