I love this place, it is authentic and simple, yet with great attentive service and tasty food. Menu has variety it is reasonably priced. Fresh and very flavorful items will let you be back for more. Location downtown is not having spectacular views but it's convenient with nice ambiance. Thumbs up!

I have visited White Elephant multiple times with friends or family and it's always good experience and not ruining the budget at the same time. Great choice of soups, salads and thai curries. Strongly recommend tom yum soup, crab pineapple sauce and fried rice with fresh pineapple and shrimps

After having the soup we ordered the green curry and the 'chicken cashew' dish wich was the most expensive chicken dish on the menu only justifiable by the fact that it contained cashew which is pretty expensive. However what we got was a plate of chicken and a couple of cashews (5-6 halves to be precise, equalling 2-3 full cashews).... More

I've been visiting this restaurant for 7 years now and it is still one of my favorites. The Thai food is very authentic (Thai chef, rare to have foreign cooks) and of great quality. The curries are very tasty and the quality of the food is very consistent -- often a problem here! I can only recommend this restaurant 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!
