I've never had Thai before, so this was my first experience. It was good. You could pick how spicy you wanted you meal based on 1 to 4 stars. It was inexpensive and restaurant was nice.

Visit this restaurant almost weekly. Staff is extremely friendly and the food is consistently excellent. Prices are reasonable especially lunch time specials. Highly recommend this place.

We had 2 dishes. Sweet and sour chicken and L21 (I forgot the name). I asked for hot and dish was good -very peppery. S&S chicken excellent. Nice choose for lunch.

We chose this restaurant based on TA reviews and weren't disappointed. We were staying at the Four Points hotel down the road and wanted to find some good Thai food. The outside of the plaza leaves much to be desired, but once inside it doesn't matter. The restaurant was clean and inviting. We were greeted warmly and seated immediately. Our... More

We are certainly not experts in Thai cuisine, but if Tong Phoon is any example, we'll be working toward that end. On walking in the door we were greeted with smiles and pleasantries. We were quickly seated and promptly served. All the food ordered was outstanding: crab rangoon, summer rolls, pork tom yum, ped talay, panang curry with beef and... More

This is the best Thai Food in the area - by far! Everything we've tried has been excellent and the presentation is just as important as the taste - top notch! We've been eating at this restaurant since it opened and have yet to find one better - Pang, the owner, is incredibly friendly and the food is the best!... More

We loved our lunch so much we went back the next day for another round of their wonderfully fresh, perfectly prepared food. Seriously, this is first rate food. Between the two lunches, we had around 7 different meals plus 3 different appetizers - all excellent. The service is very good and accommodating. Appropriate pricing. Don't let the run down appearance... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside because it's in an old strip mall but inside is immaculately clean and the service we had here was really outstanding. The food is also good though I am far from an expert on Thai food having only eaten it a few times. We look forward to going back again and would... More
