You should absolutely go to Tommy’s Wok when in Carmel. It was recommended by a friend and totally delivered. It’s a small, no frills restaurant, but the food is incredible. We had the hot and sour soup, pork dumplings and Mongolian beef. It was all awesome. The place is small and as others have mentioned, it filled up at or... More

The best egg drop soup and manchurian beef ever!!!! And I'm from New York, so that's saying a lot. We were in Carmel for three nights. We ate there twice, that's how good it was. We even brought leftovers to our hotel fir dinner tonight. Food was so fresh, lots of veggies, and barely any starchy thickeners like most take... More

I boldly say and standby what I say that Tommy's Wok is the best Chinese restaurant on the Monterey Peninsula, not to mention Monterey County! The food preparation is excellent. It is as close to being authentic Chinese cuisine as you will find for most American palates. You will not be disappointed with whatever selection you make from Tommy's menu... More

Generally, I don't go out of my way to express negative comments on a restaurant . However, I was quite disappointed after reading all the positive comments . OK...the egg rolls were OK but the curry chicken was spice less with some form of rubberized chicken pieces . The chow mein noodles were burnt . We basically through it all... More

Tommy's Wok has always been a solid stand-by restaurant. Traditionally the food has always been made with the freshest of ingredients, very accommodating to special requests and relatively good value for money (particularly in comparison to other restaurants). Tommy's Wok is now the only Chinese restaurant in town and I can't help but think that their standards have slipped just... More

Very hard to find for tourists but since I used to live nearby I find it easy to return on every trip to Carmel. Great way to dine in Carmel on the cheap. Never been disappointed in the food. Not a fancy atmosphere but you feel like a local. My guest had awesome potstickers. I ordered shrimp hunan gluten-free and... More

This little place fills up fast, so, get there early if you don't want to wait or call for reservations if you have more than to to four. Service is good, menu is pretty extensive, atmosphere is less than great. Order take out if you don't like tight spaces. The fried rice was good but could have used more salt... More

It's the only real Chinese restaurant in Carmel and one not to miss which you can easily do. The easiest way to find it is to go to the Wells Fargo Bank, walk past the ATM's and into the back door by the kitchen (they do a huge take out business from there). It has limited seating and without a... More

Really yummy food and good prices. They don't take bookings and it does get very crowded but don't be put off. The portions are large and can easily be shared between people, we over ordered!

Excellent service and food. Not expensive and portions are big, we order sweet and sour chicken, chicken chow mein and brocoli beef, for us it was perfect. Many choices on the menu, very busy place. I recommend this place.
