Great Thai

My friend's and I wanted Thai and have been wanting to check this place out. We went at lunch time. The place is pretty large on the inside and nicely decorated. We ordered 3 appetizers, white spring rolls which are summer rolls, fried egg rolls and chicken satay. All were good but I felt the... read more

They have excellent noodle and rice dishes. All meals come with a complimentary soup. The best is their potato soup served on Fridays. You can also order a large bowl. Their friend sping roll is very tasty.

Tong's Thai Restaurant provides quality Thai and Chinese food at reasonable prices. On a recent visit we enjoyed Yam Ta Lay (seafood marinated in lime juice with Thai spices), delicious white spring rolls, and Kang Keo Wan (vegetables in green curry). Specify your desired level of hot pepper when you order. Full strength is not for the fainthearted. The decor... More

Extensive menu with lots of lunch specials with both Thai and Chinese dishes. I've only been once but I would definitely go back. Parking lot is small, but there is additional parking in the adjacent lot. The Pa-Nang red curry was excellent and the leftovers were great.

Many visits 1st review. Tong's has never diappointed regardless of my menu choice. Service missed the mark a few times but I think we all entitled to a bad day sometimes

Nice staff but very average food which had us both gasping for water as the dishes were very heavily laden with salt. Nowhere near the standard of our local Thai restaurant and nothing like the food we ate in Thailand itself, the offerings were bland, devoid of any of the subtleties that make Thai food well done, such a great...

Quite a period piece of architechture which gives it a unique atmosphere. Th menu is varied and the quality is very good. Staff are helpful and friendly. Big problem is lack of parking.

Went there for lunch-- finally some decent Asian in San Antonio! Soothing outdoor environment with a pond and surrounded with plants. Good service and excellent food. Ordered Panang curry and shrimp fried rice--- 4 star spice as was requested. Thank you for a very good meal!

If you're looking for authentic tasting Thai food, this is IT! I've never been to Thailand (yet) but I've eaten my way through most of the Thai restaurants in San Antonio and have found nothing that compares. The food is fresh and served hot. My favorite, the Thai Bowl is a mix between a noodle dish and a salad with... More

This is well worth the trip from downtown hotels. It is about 15 minutes in traffic up Broadway to Austin Hwy. The service is very friendly - it is relaxed and welcoming. The atmosphere is really dated and is probably a left over from some previous incarnation of the restaurant. There is plenty of staff. The place is clean and... More
