Their lunch menu is awesome. So much food for a decent price. My only issues was with their hot and sour soup, specifically the amount of black pepper in it. I'm not sure if this is how they regularly make it or if this was a mistake and they accidentally dropped a whole jar of black pepper in the soup... More

Carmel has so many fabulous restaurants but just a couple with Asian cuisine. This little place has no 'decor'! But, the food is really good, the servers hustle and get it right and the prices are fine. I'll definitely go back and will order take out as well.

Booked a table for 7.30 & when we arrived it was chock a block. We were a few minutes late, & even though we rang ahead to say we were delayed, they gave away our table so had to wait 10-15 mins. The restaurant is just one room with a handful of tightly packed tables. Service was brisk & majorly... More

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.... More

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
