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.

Ready for a breath of fresh air in a region of sky high prices? Tommy's Wok is the place. We visited on a Sunday and found the cozy little spot in the back corner of a walkway nearly filled to capacity with locals at 5:00 PM. Table seating is rather tight as the venue is small but that led to... More

Great eat in or take out. A little pricey but, heh, it's Carmel. We're locals and this is our favorite Chinese food on the peninsula

In touristy places, it's hard to find eating places that serve good food at very reasonable prices. Then add good service and pleasant ambiance. Unbelievable, right? That's Tommy's Wok. We were a group of 7 and all of us were pleased with our choices. However, best to order (at lunch) the combos. You get a lot (noodles, rice, meat/veggies) on... More

We fancied something a bit less fancy after sampling Carmel's fine dining, so when I found this we went to check it out- it is in a courtyard so not the most obvious site. It was busy and had a varied menu for eat in or takeaway. Good mix if ingredients. There wasn't much left from our 2 main dishes... More
