Passing by late and saw this place open. I love the laid back " comfortable " dining furniture. The menu extensive and service quick.

We ordered delivery tonight for a red chicken curry, beef in oyster sauce and a few appetisers. Everything was so fresh, and there so much of it! Definitely worth the little more $$ for quality and quantity. This is my new go to Thai place.

A couple of weeks ago a Thai friend ordered our dinner from here. The best Thai food we have had in Cairns. We are going to definitely go back soon. Food was fresh, tasty and delicate.

Tried this place because of the stellar reviews. Wasn't bad, the pad thai was way too sweet for me though! To me I could taste the sugar. That is my personal opinion however so others may enjoy it, it is very popular among Cairn's locals...More

I have eaten at Poemphun Thai a few times and on each occasion have been pleasantly surprised by the quality and freshness of the food. The menu offers meals outside of your usual Thai line up which is refreshing. The herbs and veges are always...More

Decided on a night of no cooking, so we decided on Thai. Poemphun had good quick take away service, and the sit down restaurant though not being the most romantic of settings back on to the car park, seemed clean and suitable for a meal....More
