We have a Thai place within 5 minutes of our house , We drive past that one to go to Thai Phoon ... Everything is fresh & cooked to perfection , the Curry dishes are out of this world. The portions are very good. The Duck menu is extensive but a little pricey. The Curry dishes with Chicken or Shrimp... More

Had the Panang Curry Medium and Thai Tea, absolutely delicious! The meal came with free hot and sour soup and spring roll which were both excellent. The spring roll reminded me of Lumpia (Filipino Spring Roll) where I am from. If you are in Crystal River, come get some great Thai Food here!!!

Food has been consistently excellent for the 9 years we have been eating here. Moved here from Chicago, it is as good if not better than most Chicago Thai restaurants.

Local paper had a full page review on this restaurants and it had good reviews on TA, so we thought we would try it. It did not meet our expectations. We tried Double Delight. It had broccoli, carrots and lettuce to go along with the shrimp and chicken. It came with a pint of rice. There was lots of lettuce... More

We try to eat here often, they have the best Thai food in the county! Their shrimp dishes are all good and you can get them mild, med or hot. Good appetizers also.

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.

Thank FLTC
