White elephant is a descent place to visit and enjoy Thai dishes as well as Sushi. It is not the best Thai food I had,but their starters (I tried the prawns) are good. The stir fried beef along with fried rice (while not the best) were quite good. It is the best option for your Asian/ Thai food night in... More

My wife and I had one of the worst meals in recent memory. Terribly oily food with horrible aftertaste. The quality of the ingredients, preparation, and presentation of our dinner was never to be repeated again. Yes, the price is low compared to other places (but not that much lower) but it is not worth it even for free.

Me and my friends had a very nice meal at white elephant some of us were trying Thai food for the first time and we all enjoyed our meals , food was very nice with reasonable prices, staff weren't friendly but it might be because the resturant was full that day and they were busy, recommended.

We always visit the White Elephant, several times, when we go to El Gouna, the food is always good, and very reasonable. The staff are very helpful and always friendly.

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!
