Not the most well kept or updated place, but the food was homecooked and amazing! Plus, at a completely reasonable price. I will definitely return.

My son had a craving for Asian food, so on a whim, I took him to Tonn's. I couldn't recall if I'd been there before and it looked a bit sketchy (when I noticed the front overhang with the restaurant name had actually been hand painted onto the canvas). But I learned a long time ago not to just restaurants... More

The food was good...Don't get me wrong. I was a bit worried walking in and seeing tea and soy sauce for sale that looked like it had been there since the 80's with all of the dust on it and the ripped up couch that greets you as you walk in.Never the less I ordered under assurances from a local...

On July 13, 2013 my friend and I dine at Tonn's Restaurant in Mankato. I had read the reviews and always wanted to go there, so this was a special birthday treat. I had the Spicy Chicken and my friend had the Mock Duck with Mushrooms. The spicy Chicken lived up to its raves but that Mock Duck was a... More

When you walk into Tonn's you're struck by two things immediately - the odor of sweet incense and a very comfortable living room style couch butted up against the wall. A television in the corner was turned on to a Cambodian variety show. Tables are lined up near open metal shelves loaded with supplies and boxes. And out from the... More

Tonn's Restaurant is hidden in downtown Mankato right next door to the well-known breakfast establishment, The Wagon Wheel. The outside may be deceiving, but once into the building you're greeted by a wonderful, and one of the most amazing women ever. Inside the restaurant is an atmosphere decorated with elements that portray the culture of Cambodia. In a little corner... More

Bring your appetite because you HAVE to have one of Tonn's eggrolls with with your meal. They are good size and so tasty. I'm also a fan of the spicy chicken. I'd say it's about medium heat; however, by southern Minnesota standards it may be a little hotter than that. I think it's just right! This place is located in... More

Tonn does it all herself. She will prepare a few hundred egg rolls from scratch every few weeks and freeze them. You can buy them frozen for $10 a dozen to take home. Just pop in oven at 350 for 20 min on each side and they are just as crispy as they are at the restaurant. Great snack! Did... More

Appearances can be deceiving look past what you see and you will be treated to some wonderful Cambodian food. The sesame and the spicy chicken are outrageously good and tasty. Saturday soup is a real treat not to mention the best egg roll I have ever had anywhere. Tonn is a wonderful woman who works so hard for everyone that... More

A good place to eat out with friends. Good food for reasonable price. I got the chicken friend rice with chicken curry and that tasted yummy. Eggroll was awesome.
