Very clean restaurant with nice décor. Very friendly staff. Outside landscape needs maintenance to create a good first impression. The food......we came into the restaurant at about 5:30 p.m.. I had the Hot & Sour soup which was good. The rest of the Buffet was cold and tasteless. Their recipe book needs some big time help. The good things about... More

The service has good. They didn't have coffee ready and brewed a fresh pot for me. The kids drinks were refilled when needed. This was a small buffet with limited dishes that were replenished when needed. I just didn't think the food was very good.

Nice family owned restaurant. We really enjoy the lunch buffet. Not very large, but really good food. The Crab Rangoon is one of my favorites. Roomy, wonderful staff, and a quiet place for lunch or dinner. Reasonably priced.

Terrible oriental food but the locals love it. Iffy service, kinda grotty. I really have given several tries. Too expensive for the food unless you want to eat a mess of crab legs that arent very good.

It's been a staple in South Haven for years. All the locals know Tom and we love his food. They even catered my graduation party.

Tom's is unlikely to win any prizes for best Chinese cuisine on a national scale, but on a local scale it's actually one of the better restaurants in town. We often go there for lunch. If you get the buffet, make sure not to miss out on the Chinese doughnuts.

I have family in SH and recently went to visit. We were looking for a place that had good food, everyone would like and had easy access (we were taking my 92 year old Aunt) Tom's was her pick, she'd often gone in the past and missed it. The service was good, Some of us ordered off the Menu, others... More
