Super fast service!

Very casual, setting. There was a wait to be seated as this seemed to be the busiest restaurant in town. The waitress would take orders while people were waiting and I swear had food on their table within 6 minutes of being seated! There are a few veggie options that can be ordered vegan - we enjoyed veggie chow mein and a veggie tofu dish.

Pros: Fast service, Indoor and outdoor seating, Friendly staff

Alright options

Vegan options are not clearly labeled. Food is not bad, but not great.

tremendous vegetarian/vegan food, just hold the chicken broth

As someone who grew up on home-cooked Chinese food, there have been very few Chinese restaurants that I can tolerate. And now that I'm vegetarian, the situation is worse. But Tommy's Wok had reasonable prices, it was in walking distance of the hotel, and people said it's vegetarian-friendly, so we tried it.

Everything we had was AMAZING. The homemade vegetarian potstickers had a delicious dip and were some of the best I've ever had. We got the eggplant dish, which I usually don't like as much as my guy because of the eggplant's slimy greasy thing. This eggplant was fried before being sauced, so somehow it seemed less greasy?! There was a tasty sauce and the eggplant had crazy good crispy bits. Never had anything like it. #obviouslynothealthfood

And then we had a mushroom spinach dish, which we thought would have little slices of mushrooms in with pile of spinach. It was the reverse! Nice sized chunks of mushrooms with some spinach underneath. We feared the mushrooms would be bland, but they were full of flavor.

They even had brown rice!

We give Tommy's Wok's vegetarian food an A+, would give 5 stars, but not allowed. Just remember to tell them not to use chicken broth!

P.S. It's a small place with some outdoor seating - easy for 2, 4 or more probably stuck indoors. The service was also great. This is probably the best deal for a good meal in Carmel.
