Unbelievable bad ! Like the Egyptian economy the prices raised enormous and the quantity of food is 50 % reduced. We came here regularly for 7 years but tonight was for sure the LAST time. I advise all the people who come to Hurghada NOT to go to this place instead go for the descent Thai Garden outside the Marina.... More

Excellent sevice, friendly staff who won't hesitate to volunteer advice "or warnings" about the order should one be not familiar with the Thai culinary.

We've liked this place for years. The Thai food is still superb but the sushi was a little dissapointing this time. The portion sizes fixed considerably since last year and therefore did not represent value for money.

Ordered take out. Good quality for Thai food in Egypt and fair prices. Portions are big and food is fresh. I can recommend it.

I wasn't very hungry when I visited the Resturant to try it out. I have orders my favourite soup tum yum and chicken spring rolls. The soup was tasty yet the portion was small. The spring rolls came 4 in the plate which was fine but the taste wasn't good, my personal opinion is that either fried in an old... More

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!
