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!

“Excellent food, wine overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

We went here for a meal and were not disappointed with the food. Authentic thai meals at good prices. Try the deep fried ice cream for a dessert a definate favourite with our party! The wine was over priced, equivalent to 15GBP per bottle whereas the same bottle of wine in the Sphinx (a couple of doors down ) was 6.50GPB. We went to the Sphinx for a pre dinner drink which worked out much cheaper. The food however cannot be faulted, nor can the service, friendly and attentive without being over bearing.

“Authentic Thai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2011

Very good value Thai food at this restaurant with a good choice on the menu. Some dishes could be ordered with sauces of different strength - I tried mild as I was not sure how hot it would be. The meal was tasty but probably medium would have been the right amount of spice for me. Presently having building work done so visits to the WC's are across a building site - but the loos themselves are intact!

“Lovely Authentic Thai food and nice staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

This restaurant was one we thought we would try after a recommend on tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed, lovely food atmosphere and setting. It can be busy, so sometimes it may be advisable to dine earlier or book!
