Good food and great value for money

We reached here for lunch just after 2:30 pm on our first day but could not get to eat there as it had just closed. We then had dinner on the first night followed by lunch the 2nd day and we really liked the food. The prices are reasonable and service is also good. For dinner we ordered some... read more

After a family wedding the night before, many of us gathered at a relatives. The host decided to order from Tommy Wok's for the group. We have eaten at the restaurant several times on previous visits and once again enjoyed the food. Needless to say, we have a little bit of everything, but my favorite is always the Cashew Chicken,...

I would actually rate this restaurant a 3.5, if the site allowed. The service is surprisingly very good for a Chinese restaurant, but the food is average at best. SERVICE: The lead waitress/manager (Caucasian lady) is very sweet, hospitable and works fast to handle the constant flow of customers. FOOD: Average at best. Coming from San Francisco Bay Area, we...

This was my second time dining here. The atmosphere is plain, but the food is not. Very tasty and reasonably priced in Carmel. We had the sizzling rice soup, mu shu chicken, and Singapore rice noodles. The service is not chatty or snooty. It is fast and efficient. Overall a good, casual choice.

This Chinese restaurant is located on Mission between Ocean and 7th, in Carmel where it is hidden down an alley but well worth looking for. The dining room is small but well managed. The food was excellent and service was quick. This restaurant has been the best Chinese restaurant in Carmel for the past 7 years. If you like Chinese... More

We tried Tommy Wok for a quick Chinese food fix. We did appetizers rather than a full meal from the take out menu. Multi-ingredient won ton soup was excellent. Pork strips also good. Food was ready when promised. Will be back for their entrees.

We love a fine dinner and a good bottle of wine, but we can also appreciate a more down to earth meal. We first tried Tommy's several years ago and lunch at Tommy's was such a delightful surprise that we returned a few days later. We recently returned to Carmel and again went to Tommy's for lunch. We shared broccoli... More

We stopped here for lunch based on good reviews in TA and other sites. What were these people thinking? The service was pleasant for a Chinese restaurant. The food was so bland and the beef was so tough, that we were sure we were in the wrong place! The hot & sour soup was good. That's all. Every thing else... More

We arrived into town early evening after a long day. Not feeling like going out, we decided to get some take out from Tommy's Wok. It can be a little hard to hard. Its in a little courtyard on Mission between 7th and Ocean. A small place, and it was busy when we arrived for our order. Despite that, it... More

It is really tough finding good quality Chinese/Asian restaurants - I am talking about a cut above the rest. This restaurant is a hidden gem. Make reservations or suffer the consequences of a very long wait. We went two nights in a row - yes it is that good! Forget the small space (smaller than you think) and the non-existent... More
