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

Had a sate and soup, served without delay. Quality of the food is great and dishes are of reasonable Thai origin. The only minus point are the cats in the restaurant that are also laying on the chairs and the tables.... Beers and wines were cold and service was very attentive in getting them replenished. All in all a good... More

The fried rice was a little over fried, and the shrimp noodles only had 4 shrimps. Cheap, nice restaurant. I will definetly... More

Cheap and you get a lot of food, so you will not walk out hungry after eating here. I ordered fried noodles with shrimps, and I got a lot of noodles but only 4 shrimps... There was little taste in this dish, but my boyfriend had a lovely duck with curry and cashew! We would come back :)

Tried White Elephant this vacation... Food was good, but nothing special. Excellent value for money. We were 3, ordered a starter and main dish each with some drinks, and ended up paying less than USD 40 for all of us.

My husband and I went to this restaurant after a friend recommended it. On arrival we received a very warm welcome from the waiter. The seating was comfortable and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Now to the important bit, the food. It was, as the title of this review states, amazing! We both had a starter and a main and... 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!
