Tai food is one of my favourite. I went here two years ago and wasn't happy but was invited back after my comments. The team have looked at other people's comment and are making a really good job. I love noodles and King prawns which...More

Never really done Thai food before. We were on a 2 week all inclusive holiday where the food gets a little repetitive. We went here twice as the food was delicious and I would highly recommend it if you're near here for your holiday

We recently moved to El Gouna and we are addicted to White Elephant! We are trying all the restaurants but we continually return to White Elephant. It never disappoints. We are from America and we miss sushi so we often go to eat it there....More

I don’t like Far Eastern food but this place made me reconsider my opinion about it. Tom Yum soup here is the tastiest thing I’ve ever tried! Chef is a professional and knows good food. Meanwhile the waiters lack hospitality and good manners.

Nice Thai food, the food is tasty and atmosphere is nice but weather is too hot.inside. Service is average or below. If they improve the service I think they can be one of top restaurants in El Gouna. You have to try tom yum soup.

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!
