Four of us met for lunch a couple of weeks ago. The wives all told us to check it out and see whether it was worth joining us. The unanimous decision was that it is worth it. Really good Thai food is difficult to find in the Panhandle, and this restaurant is a welcome addition to the dining scene. The... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal! Staff are very friendly, welcoming and appropriately attentive. Would highly recommend. It is now called "Real Thai Fusion". Worth checking out!

Quite confusing as the name is different now and the name Thai Elephant is on a place in Santa Rosa Beach. I don't think the food has changed at this Miramar beach spot. It is pretty good, and a very reasonable price for lunch. The soups are nice and I like the red curry. The other Thai ,( east of... More

Been here a few times now. Service is always prompt. Thai Iced tea is good and authentic. Basil Chicken is excellent EXCEPT they don't use fresh Thai chilies, they use dried or paste in the sauce. I really wish they would use fresh chilies as I order my dish Thai Hot and with the dried (whatever they are using) most... More

i do a fair amount of traveling and always try to search out good Thai food. This place has really good Thai food. The portions are large and everything is very fresh. My favorite is the basil with chicken. I have eaten 2x i the past few weeks and have zero complaints.

My family enjoyed the restaurant. It was basically empty which was a little scary but we went based on reviews. We ordered: Thai Basil Chicken, Spring Rolls, Tom Kha Soup, Shrimp Green Curry, Chicken Pad Thai, and Wonton Soup. Our favorites were the Green Curry and the Wonton Soup. Everything else was decent in my opinion...everyone enjoyed their food. We... More

This place just moved from Miramar Beach to Santa Rosa Beach, FL and we are glad they did. We finally got back into town after being gone on vacation and had to try Thai Elephant. We shared the Green Curry with Chicken and the Pad Thai with Chicken. Both were the best we have had anywhere on the Panhandle. The... More

Yum! Awesome Pad Thai! Great place for locals to eat away from 30A craziness. Delicious Red Curry Vegetable as well! I can't wait to go back and try some more!

Fantastic restaurant for locals/tourists. Family cooking Thai food. Prices very reasonable and not tourist prices. Being a visitor to Destin, we saw the restaurant driving along Highway 98 to and from Panama city beach. If you don't like the sweet thai sauce on the pad thai noodles or other dishes, tell your server so they can vary the sweetness for... More
