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

Very very poor service and the salad with noodles has lemon and spices and I said without lemon those were the worst noodles I've tasted and I got the order 1 hour after I ordered.

The service is amazing, the free crackers with the sauces they offer when you first sit is just amazing, everything we ordered tasted super, nothing we ordered was bad!

The food tasted so good. We ordered: 2 Beef Oyster Sauce, coconut rice, noodles, 2 spring rolls and a pan of shrimps with pineapples and coconut sauce, when we split the check, we payed a 100 each and we were 4 people. Prices are relatively moderate. Excellent service.

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 : (

Having visited Thailand last autumn we were prepared to be disappointed but we were very pleasantly surprised at the authenticity of the food. The chef is from Thailand which is apparent when you taste the dishes. We skipped the starters and just ordered main courses but massively over ordered. Generous portions cooked as spicy as you request. Service was good... More

Had been told by friends that this is THE place to eat. Such a shame. The papadoms were toasted and burnt The chicken tikka masala was SO HOT it was more like a vindaloo

We always eat here when in El Gouna as its such good valu and terrific, authentic Thai food. We had chicken skewers and Thai pancake rolls and red curry and sticky rice washed down with some delicious local white wine. The curries and rice cost an unbelievable 39LE each and the starter are around 20LE. Its always popular here but... More

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. It's nice that you can choose how spicy you want your food, and the service is good. I don't think we can go to El Gouna and not visit... More
