Description: 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!

“the food was delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

The atmosphere was great, we felt as if we were in a restaurant in Thailand itself, the food was perfect and the staff was helpful as they had huge variety and didn't know what to choose

“Really disappointed!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

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

“A little gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Really good Thai food at a very reasonable price. We have been coming here for four years when we visit El Gouna and it never fails to impress. The food is always good and the outside seating area is really nice. If you want to be sure of a seat outside then book, if not, you may have to sit inside. The sizzling dishes are really good and should be tried. Well worth a visit for a good value meal. A delivery menu is available which is good if you are staying in self catering accommodation.

“Tasty food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Good choice on the menu, quiet busy at times, a little slow but food is cooked fresh and worth the wait.

“So So”

Not bad for Thai food in Egypt but even though I miss having Thai food, I'm not sure I would go back.
