Great little place for lunch and dinner. All dishes are very fresh and spiceyness prepared to order. Restaurant is in strip mall and not very large. Probably 40 seats at best. Family owners travel back to Thailand regularly for ingredients.

I'm a westerner married to a Thai woman for 25 years and anyone that writes that the food is authentic doesn't know. You will never find red and green bell peppers in any Thai food, nor will you find carrots. Bamboo shoots are reserved for a few select dishes as are snow peas. So what was in my Thai Basil,...

Greeted by a very friendly host in a nice quaint resturant. One of my favorite Thai resturants! The waitress was very helpful guiding me in a selection for dinner. Fantastic choice which was her favorite. Nice healthy break from the run of the mill food! Definitely will return.

I came to Crystal River for many things -- ok, mainly one thing: manatees. What I didn't expect to necessarily find was delicious Thai food tucked away in a non-descript shopping center. Thai Phoon offered absolutely delicious, authentic thai food, chock full of flavor and spice. One of the many delights we encountered in Crystal River.

We stopped in for dinner at Thai Phoon in Crystal River, FL. We had to wait about 20 minutes to get a seat, it was a full house. After a slight mix up with who came in first and was next to be seated, we sat down. The food and the service were top notch, the owner was part of... More

We visited this restaurant in the hopes that they would have a variety of options for my vegan daughter; thai restaurants are usually very vegan friendly, but not this one. It turned out most of their sauces are prepared in advance, so only 2 of their entrees were available without egg or fish sauce. Really good restaurants don't have all... More

Visited the restaurant to have dinner and the food was wonderful as usual but what was going on with the staff?! They were yelling at each other! Very inappropriate. Bad vibes all around. Another day tried to order a take out and they never answered the phone despite being open. Called about a half hour later and was able to... More

Thai Phoon lives up to its reputation for excellent Thai dishes. The menu is extensive including Chinese dishes. My wife had wonton soup and said it was one of the best she had ever had. The Green Curry and Pad Thai were prefect, While the atmosphere is not exceptional it was fine for families.
