Poor experience-deep fried /terribly overseasoned food/food covered in oversalted bottled inedible sauces. Wanted to enjoy it but food was not good sorry tommy!

We went to Tommy's Wok while on our trip to Carmel. It is a small place with about 10 tables. we were lucky and sat right down and within about 2 min we had drinks and tea. The soups were great, portiong large and we had enough for lunch the next day. A wonderful experience.

We almost gave up trying to find it but after walking around the block a couple of times we happily found Tommy's Wok. Although the restaurant is small (around 10 tables), the service was efficient, the food excellent and prices very reasonable - particularly considering how generous the servings are. Everything - including the soups - can be shared between... More

The food here is quite tasty although they kind of all blend with the same sauces. You will not find a cheaper restaurant in town. The free soup and tea is a nice gesture and the staff are friendly. Check out the cute lingerie stuff in front to work up an appetite.

Have had 3 meals here, 2 of which were take-out. All the dishes have been tasty. The prices are reasonable and the staff friendly. The restaurant is a bit cramped and not fancy, wouldn't be my first choice to go if you need to impress someone or have an important conversation. The menu has some lamb and fish selections, which...

A trip to Carmel is not complete if my wife and I do not eat at Tommy's Wok at least twice. Once usually in the restaurant, and at least once for take out. The BEST orange chicken I have ever had! The food is so fresh and the serving sizes are plentiful. We can easily share if we so choose.... More

I came here strictly based on the reviews I read and wanting Asian food for dinner. If you like PF Chang's (food-wise), you'll love this place. Very small, but this adds to its character. Nonetheless, we were a party of 5 with 3 kids (13, 11, and 7), and we were lucky to get a seat. The pot stickers, hot/sour... More
