A wonderful spot for Thai food! We shared the Ban Xeo (Thai Crepe) to begin our evening, and it was excellent! Stir fried shrimp, chicken, bean sprouts, garlic sauce, folded into a crepe. Although listed in the appetizer section of the menu, I could easily make this my entree. Soooo good!
I had the Pad Thai for my main course and it did not disappoint. Some of the best Pad Thai I've tasted! My man friend ordered the Combination Lo Mein, and he said it was excellent, as well. He liked it better than my Pad Thai. I didn't get the chance to taste his, since he finished every morsel on his plate! The portions are generous, too. I finished my meal with a Boba Milk Tea, one of my favorites.
The atmosphere of Tong's Thai Restaurant is cozy, yet airy, perfect for adults, families, or large groups. The decor is fun, Oriental chic. The service was excellent, provided by our waitress "Kay" (not sure of the spelling of her name)! We will be back! There are so many things to try, and I especially want to have some of their Sushi.

Food are not so good, salty and very pricey for the location and restaurant appearance. paid $17.00 for one of the dishes because it has shrimps. Ask for a sauce and the sauce bottle is broken ( big time chips) and still serving it, almost cut my self. Definitely not worth for the money paid. I should have taken a pictures and sure you will agree with me. Paid $ 70.00 for three people. What did we eat? we actually came out from there hungry.
The only thing I like is the Bobba (pearl drink) and the parking lot, they have a guard who looks after your car. I guess it's not really a nice location...

The Tom Yan Koong soup was our starter and was excellent! I had the Pa Nang. It tasted very authentic and had a good strong Thai flavor to it. The spring rolls that are served with the plates are really good too. I wasn't too happy with my lumpy and cold rice though. But that's ok because the other food made up for this small disappointment. All of us at the table loved the Iced Jasmine tea. Everyone should try this cold beverages when visiting the restaurant. The serves was friendly and the atmosphere quaint.
Have experience with several thai plates such as the red and green curry plates, the pad thai and a couple others. All plates were excellent. The cheese rolls are great as well as the bubble drinks. My husband likes their thai iced tea. service might not be great but the food makes up for it. I like to atmosphere is nice too dim lights and an aquarium. I am comparing their food to the thai food my husband and I have eaten in Germany.

The food here is really good, my favorites are the Spring Roll, (it's soooo delicious), Pad Thai and Orange, Sesame or Special Beef. The beef is deep fried and gives it a nice texture. Again, the food is good, however the service is very, very, very slow and customer service is not one of their specialities. The waiters are not especially friendly or accomodating and quite frankly lack personality. I've also noticed that the portions have gotten smaller and smaller over the years I've been eating here. Overall, I recommend this restaurant, but be warned that the service is not great.
