I visited to take out. The menu was huge and took some time to settle on what to order. Chose spring rolls and pork chops. Excellent food! I'll be back again!

This was a "stumble-upon" experience. The owner served us personally and was more than helpful in explaining some of the items on the menu that I questioned. Get the spring rolls but get them "fresh" rather than "fried". A unique experience for me. I also had the Tamarind Duck - a crispy skinned duck with a moist, tender interior. The... More

It would be easy to walk past this reataurant in a street of many, but having a hankering for SE Asian food the menu looked varied enough to service a fussy eater like myself. The chicken spring rolls were absolutley unique. Moist and tasy and the sause that went with it was sweet and flavoursome. Simply delicious! The crispy coated... More

I have only had Thai food a few times, so I am not an expert. BUT, our food was fantastic! We got two dishes, both were about $10. Mango Curry Chicken was perfect blend of sweet and spice flavors. Spicy Chicken with peanuts and Prik Pao Sauce was perfect with just a little spice. Everything was very fresh. Noodles and... More

Awesome noodle bowls. I had the Udon Noodle bowl and it was magnificent. Spice it as hot or mellow as you like.

I was introduced to this restaurant by a local when I was in Waltham, MA on a business trip. I'm not very familiar with Thai food, so I didn't really know what to expect. I was able to customize my food (I didn't want it to be too spicy) and got exactly what I wanted. The food was incredible! Great... More

Average thai restaurant on Moody Street in Waltham. The Somai was not fresh made but previously frozen and warmed up. I could do this at home. The Pad Thai was average.

If you find yourself around Moody Street in Waltham during lunchtime you're in luck: there are loads of great places to eat. Tom Can Cook is one of them: a homey little restaurant serving up Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Thai fare that's usually tasty and quick. The bi bim map is great when you eat it there but doesn't travel... More

If you have never traveled to downtown Waltham, MA and gone up and down Moody Street, you should. It is filled with nice and comfortable independently run restaurants. Tom Can Cook is one such "diamond in the rough" serving up typical Thai cuisine in a simple setting. The pad thai is excellent and the spices can be turned up upon... More

I no longer live in Waltham, but this place is one that you may long for when you are away. The Pad Thai is amazing, and the Crispy Pad Thai is a special treat I haven't found else where. We would also get the spicy Triangles with peanut chicken satay, all outstanding.We used to eat here probably 1-2 per month... More
