I've been to this place many years ago and the quality of Thai food stuck to mind to the extent that I had to revisit it again. I will surely recommend this place and come every time I'm in Gouna

Six of us visited the White Elephant and were all impressed with the quality of the food - tasty and hot although the local definition of curry strength may not be quite as hot as expected

We loved this restaurant, we ate there 3 times during our holiday. The food is delicious and so reasonably priced, definitely worth a visit. The staff were really helpful when we were trying to choose from the menu, explaining meals and recommending meals.

We found this restaurant in Downtown El Gouna a five minute walk from our hotel the Dawar el Omda. The food was superb and very reasonably priced - so we went back several times & loved it every time!

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!
