Great service and food so thai authentic. Also great for groups- they were able to accomodate 9 of us on a walk in even if the place is almost full. Great food- our second time around after scalloping. Definitely will be back for more. Panangs are great or any curry food. My daughter ordered Pad see ew - a little... More

I wrote a review about the Thai Phoon after my first visit a couple years ago and had only great things to say about it. Since then I have been through Crystal River a few more times and each time, I make it a point to stop here to eat, whether for lunch or dinner. Each and every time, I... More

My husband and I had lunch at this restaurant and it was excellent. The appetizer of a spring roll, sauce and coconut soup was excellent. I ordered chicken panang and my husband ordered Thai basil, medium heat and both were so good and clean, the vegetables were crunchy, sauce perfect. Definitely will go back!!!

They shut down whenever they feel like. They don't adhere to their hours. Especially when the snowbirds are in town. They'll often tell you that the kitchen is too busy for take out. The food is great if you can actually get it. Too bad they have terrible service.

Food had good flavor but there was a long wait to get it to go. Originally they told me they werent able to do a to-go order. I was shocked. How does a restaurant not do a to-go? Overpriced & not likely to recommend.

This Restaurant on big parking lot looks very simple, but the thai food offered there is really good: A big variety of asian specialities and very very well prepared and cooked for a fair and reasonable price

The food is always fresh and good. I am far from an expert on Thai food, so I cannot vouch for their authenticity. That said, I have never been disappointed with anything on the menu. The ambience is so -so. The hospitality can be lacking at times but for the quality of the food and reasonable prices I don't consider... More

We wanted to try another Thai Restaurant and had seen a lot of good reviews. The soup and egg rolls were delicious. I got double delight which was good but had a lot of onions and peppers in it. My husband got the pad thai which was very good and had lots of shrimp. Service was good

Thai Phoon is located in a strip mall, it does not offer warm ambience, but the food keeps up coming back each year. We stumbled upon this place 5 years ago while visiting family in Crystal River, and have gone back every year since! Excellent menu, and truly outstanding cuisine! Don't judge a book by its cover if you want... More
