Bring Tom back to cook!!!

This was my first Thai place back in 1999 and it was the best. As far as I know Tom doesn't cook any longer. Quality of food has also declined along with the service. I am to go there tomorrow and meet up with the friend who introduced me to Tom's. She hasn't been in 12 years and I hope she isn't too bummed out. I also hope we don't get sick. That sucks that they're so nasty and can't keep it clean. Tom needs ... view more

Love it!

I absolutely love this place. I fell in love with it the first time I ever ate here. One time I ordered 5 Stars, and after placing 1 carrot shred in my mouth my eyes were watering!! But it was still so good!!

I would really like to give more stars but....

I am a huge fan of Thai food and I've been to dozens of Thai restaurants in the city. Thai Tom used to be my favorite but I had to give it up. The panang curry and phad thai were super good and I really wouldn't go above two stars unless you're a masochist. However, every time after I ate there, I would get stomach aches and wouldn't feel good at all. Then I read on the Seattle website that posts sanitary reviews of ... view more

Worth the wait? Maybe

I've been to Thai Tom twice, and it's great but when I ask myself how much I'd like it if it weren't for the long wait, I think it would be just slightly above average. People tend to follow the herd, whatever's popular, and if you inconvenience yourself to wait, you have to justify that to yourself if you don't want to feel like an idiot, so I think people over-estimate how good the food actually is.

old favorite but sorry can't give you five stars

As an UW alumnus I've eaten at Thai Tom many times. For a student it was cheap and delicious food. I loved sitting at the counter wrapped around the cooking area and watching the cooks send up huge flames. Most of the times the food was fine. You go in, get seated, and get out within 30 minutes. For those people/reviewers that said the wait is long...did you not see the restaurant only has enough seating for 20 s... view more

I got lucky, it seems.

Okay, I guess it was my lucky day when I went because: A. I didn't see one g**dam* crockroach. However I am vegan, and a crockroach wouldn't keep me from some fine vegan Thai food, since good, really good vegan food in restaurants if hard to come by. B. I did not get the True Religion Jeans Server or the Pony Tail Stink-Eye Server. How many servers can this small place have. I only saw one, and she was awesome, smi... view more

Horrible Service, Cockroachs in bathroom, food is average

This is the morning after Thai Tom and our stomaches are in pain.....\r \r First off, I never really write reviews but I feel compelled this time around...\r \r Waiter:\r \r There is this tall long pony-tail m0f0 that works there. Never have I ever wanted to physically h i t a waiter. Jesus Christ, this guy makes service at your typical Chinese Restaurant seem 5 star. He can't really speak english, he rolls yo... view more

Oh my god !

Before I write this review, I read all the reviews that people posted in the past. I slowly realized that there is a famous waiter at this restaurant who I met today.\r \r When I first looked at him, I thought he was a good looking guy and I was expecting a great customer service from him. You know what? I was totally wrong. Yes, I was wrong at all. \r \r I called him to order my dish, and he yelled at me, \r ""... view more
