“food fine, cramped restaurant”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

the waiter serving us was spot on, polite, professional and not at all pushy but happy to help with the menu. food was fine too, i'm marking it down as the restaurant itself was very cramped, there were a lot of "tables for two" in while we were there and the tables were less than an inch apart, for some people i appreciate this will be part of the places charm but it's not to my taste!

Thank cloggygirl

“Small, slow, but well worth the wait”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We tried to order food to go over the phone on Labor Day weekend but no one answered and we thought they might be closed for the holiday, nope just crowded. The restaurant is tiny and some knuckleheads thought it would be a good idea to bring their group of 17 to the small restaurant. It took over an hour to receive our to go order but it was awesome. The Singapore Noodles green bean chicken were amazing.

I highly recommend it, but be considerate and don't bring your posse as the small dining area and kitchen can't handle the volume.

“Food I crave once I'm back home”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Chinese food. The best eggplant dish ever! Evil Prince Shrimp anyone? We order it to eat there and we get an extra order to take home for the next day! Not a large restaurant but a great authentic one. We are always happy with everything we get. This place is back in a little cubby and it's definitely worth finding.

“Not Pet Friendly”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Went to Carmel since it was rated as one of the most pet friendly cities..our hotel was wonderful. When researching
restaurants which are pet friendly. Tommy's Wok was one on the list..however when we arrived with our two lil poodles they said they could set us up with a table outside at the back door along with the trash and parking lot to Wells Fargo...needless to say we did not eat there nor will we recommend it to our friends.If you are not "REAL" pet friendly..then do not advertise that you are.

“Less than sanitary conditions”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We have eaten at Tommy's Wok many times but we have never gone to the back door for carry-out. It was a real "eye opener". Swarms of flies hovered by the open door to the kitchen. Food littered the floor of this tiny kitchen. Another door off the patio revealed a woman sitting on a stool paring vegetables in less than sanitary conditions. Later in the evening one of our guests had to leave a theater performance because of "montezuma's revenge". Beware!
