Ate here on last night in Carmel. Did have to wait for a table -20 mins or so. Inside its tightly packed with tables and rather noisy. Wide variety of choice. Service is prompt but it seemed like it was a very much a fast food style service to get you in & get you out as fast as possible.... More

By searching on this website, we found Tommy's Wok! This restaurant is hidden down a small side street near the Wells Fargo bank. It is busy but we put our name down at the door and only had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. The food was brilliant and portions on the generous side. My daughter ordered sweet... More

You may have to wait to get into this small eatery, but, its well worth it. First a note to people from the UK, Normaly at a chinese you would order a starter, a main and a side portion of rice. Dont do that here! We were left with more than half of our food left over. One of the... More

This places tucked away down a small court but worth finding. We were a group of 7 and started with 2 big bowls of soup which was very tasty. The princess prawns are amazing and the rice and chow mein are nice too. Not so sure about the duck dish but that was personal choice. It is only a small... More

We spent a lovely evening in Carmel and found this restaurant through Yelp, I think. Not far off the main street, this small Chinese restaurant served up some excellent food. We had the sizzling rice soup- delicious and light, and the crispy Hunan fish. Not sure exactly what the latter dish was called on the menu but it was lightly... More

We came here for an early dinner and loved the delicious food and ultra quick service. A few minutes after we sat down there were lots of people waiting for tables (they don't take reservations).

We ordered the egg rolls (yummy!) potstickers (good but a bit doughy on the inside) Mongolian beef & basil chicken to go. The food was fresh and the sauces were outstanding. Lots of veggies in the basil chicken & good flavor. Hubby liked the Mongolian beef but it came back to visit him the next day with a bit of... More

My boyfriend and I stopped in Carmel after going to Point Sur Lighthouse and were starved. We parked on the street and walked around a bit before seeing the restaurant. It was delicious! We both like spicy food, so I got the lunch portion of Orange Chicken and he got the lunch portion of Kung Pao Chicken--came with fried rice,... More

The only bad thing is that it is always very busy. The food, the prices, the service are phenomenal!

Carmel has no street numbers. Tommy's Wok is a true "hole-in-the-wall" food establishment (I hesitate to say 'restaurant'). If you can find the Wells Fargo Bank off Ocean, and park in their lot (running the risk of the dragon who patrols for non-banking patrons), then the Dutch door to the north of the parking lot opens the gateway to Tommy's....
