Great food at a great value!

Four of us decided to give this place a try. Glad we did. Got there at about 6:00 on Sunday night. The place was packed (it is quite small, however). Were seated within fifteen minutes. Fast service. We all ordered different entrees. All were excellent! Definitely worthy of a return visit!!

The food was decent, nothing to rave about. Typical Chinese fast food place. Too crowded to eat in so we opted for take out. Staff able to take an order, but not what you would call customer service oriented.

I have never complained about any of the businesses in my area until now. I am a local and have always raved about the delicious Chinese food here. I was disappointed and shocked to find the staff rude here during lunch the week between Christmas and New Year's eve. I casually walked in to find the restaurant full and busy... More

Small, upscale but casual (it's in Carmel!) and good Chinese food.

Tommy's seems to have a strong following from locals, which is always a good sign. For Carmel, the prices were great, but we didn't expect the food to be so memorable. Both the Wonton Soup and the Orange Chicken were amazing. The atmosphere is no frills but enjoyable. We definitely recommend for dine-in and especially if you are looking for... More

Get take out. Servers forgot we were waiting, noise level made conversation impossible, waiters kept forgetting what we ordered. Food was fresh and delicious. I'd eat food again, but never sit in the restaurant.

This is a good value for families who like Chinese food. Portions are generous, prices are reasonable, the service is quick and the atmosphere is casual and relaxed. However, don't expect memorable meals - it's the same food you'd get at your local Chinese restaurant back home. The staff is efficient but not personal or engaging. At the end of... More

Cramped tables, noisy. Get in and get out is the order of the day. MuShu chicken tasted okay, but too oily, & pancakes were cold. Appetizers below par, greasy eggrolls, potstickers were overcooked. Chicken in soup and several entres was rubbery. I've been here for dinner and lunch. This is not a fast wok cooked meal as the name would... More
