Carry-out

Excellent Chinese food, well cooked with fresh veggies. Loved the Tofu. A must try when in Carmel. We took carry-out for dinner. Just that despite having said medium spicy they ended up adding a lot of chilies which kind of burnt our Palate.

This is a mainstay for us; we love the wide variety, fresh ingredients and exceptional service. This dining experience included 3 excellent dishes for 3 people. The sweet & sour pork is SOO tender, the sesame beef mouth watering for sure and the prawns with walnuts are certainly unique. As always, the service was superb; friendly and very efficient which...

Me and my family spent 2 nights here for dinner. The reason? we love to eat rice and this is the place to go in Carmel. The place is small and its packed with people during peak hours so if you're late you have to sign your name and wait (probably the longest waiting time is 15, 20 min if... More

One of the best Chinese meals we have ever had! Easy to order over the phone and was ready to pick up when we got there. Tony's Special Chow Mein was superb.

Probably the best MooShu pork on the Peninsula. Pork pot stickers a bit on the pink side (makes me slightly nervous) but they have a veggie option as well. Efficient and polite wait staff and kitchen. Decent portions and reasonable prices for Carmel (thank you Tommy's Wok). Perfect for take out or a very informal dinner. Very busy and noisy... More

Best chicken fried rice I've ever had, lemon chicken was fresh and also the best I've had. Fast service and inexpensive. Highly recommend.

A great wee place in Carmel. Takes a bit of finding, but when you do, you'll be glad. A good selection of dishes for lunch. Hot & sour soup was excellent. Staff very helpful: I heard one girl in particular dealing very calmly with quite a fussy diner. All in all, very good

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. Tommy's Wok is... 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
