The place is not so easy to find. When walking from Ocen down 7th, its to the right and somewhat inside an alcove.
We got the Cheese crab puffs - which were a bit oily but flavorful and came with a great dip/ sauce. The Basil chicken was good . The shrimp fried rice had a burnt over heated flavor.
To be said was this was dinner time and the place was buzzing both with all tables full up inside the small space but also take away orders so the cooks could have been over worked ( at other times maybe they do a better job). Given the obvious popularity of the place, its likely that our experience was not typical. Portions are good and prices low for the area.

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 they open in San Francisco? The restaurant is hidden off the main path . The locals keep this treasure hidden. I hesitate to turn people on to it. Tommy's is small and I personally don't want it to be the hardest place to get into once the word gets out ? So if you do go mums the word.

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.
