Good amount of food for the value

We walked in to order take-out, which was an easy process, as someone helped us right away. We sat on the back patio, which has a few tables and chairs while we waited for our food to be prepared. We saw a number of people come in to pick-up to-go orders and the restaurant was fairly full... read more

We ordered enough for six to go. The woman taking the order that it would be ready in 15 minutes. I responded.. "Was that 50 minutes..." No ,15 minutes " and it was. The reason it was so fast is the fact it is wok cooked over Blazing hot fire that can cook an enter in less than a minute.... More

Clearly family-run, small off the street restaurant that does a lot of take out. We had Kung Pao, pot stickers, spring rolls and hot and sour soup. It was all done well for a reasonable price, especially considering Carmel being pricey.

Working in Carmel, it is hard to eat out on a buget. I probably eat here at least twice a month. Food is very good and reasonable! My favorite is the Orange Chicken Combo Plate. For 10 bucks you get a lot of food. I usually can't finish it and take the rest home for dinner or late night snack.... More

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 Hunan... 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
