Superb!

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!

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.

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

Food and service was great. The ambience really added to the experience. They had good music.... reggae and jazz playing at a Thai place how much more crazy than that can you get.

We have passed right by Tong's for years, but decided to stop in today looking for something different. The food was delicious! We order a chicken Sa-tay appetizer which was grilled perfectly and came with a very delicious peanut sauce and a light, flavorful cucumber sauce. We order Pa-nang and a dish they call "Spicy", and they were both delicious.... More

Looking for some good thia, but ended up with two pea size rocks in the fried spring rolls. The tom yum soup was ok. Had to finish our diner quick because Mosquitos inside restaurant were eating us alive!!! We've been to several thia restaurants and sorry to say we will not be back to this one.

Let me explain the title; "A review that took 25 years to write!" My previous visit to Tong's Thai was approximately 25 years ago, right around the time it opened. For who knows what reason; It's been that long since my last visit. (I've made up for it in the last 2 weeks; with 2 dinners and 1 lunch) I... More
