Went for dinner. We had the red curry beef, pad thai pork, chicken satay and a recommended appetizer of fresh vegetable rolled in a clear noodle to be dipped in peanut sauce. The server's recommendation was delicious. Our food was all prepared quickly and served...More

The portions even for us big guys are right sized. The staff was wonderful. Even gave me a sample of a cold saki when we started talking about the wine list.

Thai Phoon Is one of those places in a small strip mall that surprises you with very good food and service. It is locally owned and run and is enjoyed by many Crystal River locals.

I saw the great reviews and we were planning on visiting Thai Phoon next week. Then today I found out that you were cited for 41 health inspection violations the last week of January. We've decided to find somewhere else to eat. How sad, because we love Thai food.

Really as a chef and winemaker, got the back stage pass...all looked good to me. Everyone has a bad day...all I can say is prep area clean, and food prepared to high standards.

I don't own the restaurant, just eat there frequently. Call them and ask...or just go down there and try their food. Check their hours...however. They do make authentic Thai food...
