Food is very good but restaurant atmosphere not something I would recommend. It is very small and usually crowded. You can feel rushed at times. Recommend the food as take-out!

If you're on a budget while visiting Carmel by-the-Sea, you've noticed that you don't have a lot of choice unless you get a deli sandwich to eat at the park. Tommy's Wok is the solution! Good Chinese food at reasonable prices. Pretty authentic, you'll see visitors from China eating here.

I having been coming to Carmel for years . My culinary treat is all the restaurant cuisines that Carmel has to offer. Coming from SF CA where there is no lack of Asian food, I didn't think that Carmel would have the best Chinese restaurant! Yes, I have to have my Tommys Wok when I crave Chinese food! Why can't...

Stumbled on this place and glad we did. We had lunch off the lunch specials menu and liked the simplicity of having the soup and rice along with noodles with whichever main dish you ordered. Quick service also.

Tucked away in a small corner of Mission St., Tommy's Wok offers a great selection of Chinese Food and Dim Sum. We went during their lunch hours, so we ordered lunch specials. For the price you're paying for a lunch special, you get quite a bit in your plate. The food is cooked well and tastes great. I would have... More

A friend of mine told me about this place. I'm glad that she had, because I never would found it on my own. It holds about 35-40 people, and place is always packed for dinner. The is a front and a back entrance, but you can't tell which is which. People order take-out from the back, where you can find... More

I have eaten here a number of times before on trips to Carmel. A nice mix of asian cuisine and good service. It seems that prices have gone up a little since last year but good value for Carmel.

The food was ok, but not outstanding. We had the beef/broccoli and the Mongolian beef. Both dishes had rather tough beef and there were no knives provided. There's an additional charge for brown rice which we were not informed about and the fortune cookies were hard and stale. The food came out quickly and service was pleasant though not overly...

Small restaurant and very basic atmosphere but there food was very good and very reasonably priced. If you are in the mood for authentic Chinese cuisine, I would recommend eating here. We would definitely eat here again.

We had a lovely meal here. Restaurant is very basic, very good service. Not like the other restaurants in Carmel, which are mostly fine dining and very expensive. This was good basic Chinese food at a reasonable price.
