Nothing terrible, but not special either. Prices were above average. They do have a happy hour, that includes a free cheese... read more

The food was really good. They have this salsa in the back that is much spicier and has so much flavor since I love spicy. The one they bring out is tasty but mild. Carlos' dish is very unique and full of flavor!! It was really delicious. We were greeted and served very quickly and everyone there was very, very... More

The cuisine was better than average yet not what I feel is exceptional. Sonoma County has many Mexican cuisine options. You will leave satisfied as the size of portions are reasonable yet there are other Mexican restaurants in Sonoma County that I've rated higher. Nice staff. Attentive and friendly.

Mexican meals can range from lardy bland dishes to exquisitely prepared tasty cuisine. Tonayan has shown culinary excellence with its two new dishes - Molcajete and Empapelada. For those who prefer the regular fare, Tonayan offers traditional combo items as well. The restaurant was comfortable and clean, the large menu reasonably-priced, service attentive, margaritas well-made, and food portions generous. We... More

We've eaten several times at Tonayan when we visit my son's family in Northern California. Every time it's been delicious and the restaurant staff is always helpful in helping our grandchildren with their specific tastes. I always get the Tijuana Soft taco's. Being of Mexican descent, I really enjoy their rice and beans. The Cadillac margarita's are to die for....try... More

Well, we had a restaurant.com coupon for this place, so we were getting $25 off of a $35 purchase, and decided to check it out. We started with the chimichangitas, and they were very good. Hot and tasty, and delivered just as we ordered them (toppings on the side). My wife enjoyed her dish (carne asada), including the rice and... More

Excellent service in a fairly large space buried in a strip mall. My chile rellenos were warm so I would suspect rewarmed versus fresh. This is the first time I have ever added salt to Mexican food because of blandness

I love this restaurant and feel like it is my hidden secret. Hardly anyone I talk to has heard of it, so I thought I would bring some attention to this wonderful restaurant that is family owned. Once you are seated in their large and comfortable dining room, hot chips and homemade salsa are brought to your table. The salsa... More
