We visited here on a weeknight around 9 pm; they stay open until 10 pm. There was only one other couple dining when we arrived. The menu is quite varied and the prices are very reasonable. We often order spring rolls, but their spring rolls contain shrimp. They have vegetarian rolls, which they said were fried, so instead we opted... More

Went for an early meal with my young daughter. I had the chicken noodle soup and gladly paid an extra $ for more vegetables. It was fresh and delicious. My daughter ordered the chicken teriyaki with vegetables. There was not a piece of white meat on the plate and it was all over cooked. The cost of her meal was... More

Visited here with my friend from nearby Weston...she had eaten here before and assured me that I would love it. It turned out to be a delightful evening with great Asian Thai cuisine. Some of the usual Thai cuisine you know and love...but also interesting, extremely creative, and best of all....delicious options. Many vegetarian choices as well as chicken, pork,... More

The menu is very varied, with an interesting selection of dishes. Our food was very tasty and the service was very quick. I was actually surprised that it was so quiet the night I visited.

Met a friend for dinner and truly enjoyed the various options to try. The waitress was very attentive and made sure to clear our plates as soon as we were finished. They are also good at accomodating changes to the entree. For instance, my friend is allergic to garlic and they made sure to avoid putting garlic in the dish... More

We have typically eaten at or gotten take out from Tom Can Cook every few weeks as it's just down the street from home. The past few times we've gotten food there, we've had some issues, and thus I'm not as big a fan as the last time I reviewed it. First, I agree with some other reviewers who mention... More

I am shocked to have to write this negative of a review. From being ignored for the first 15 or so minutes to getting food with "chicken" that tasted like soggy paper, this was a miserable experience. Tom Can Cook has a great name, but for us, that was about all that was great about it.

We tried three Thai dishes and all them were good. Tom has a special Pad Thai dish which was delicious. We also had a "make your own" dinner which in our case had shrimp and chicken with basil and spices - excellent. The green curry with chicken dishes was just OK -- could have been spicier. The service was friendly... More

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!
