The people make what otherwise is a solid Thai restaurant. Super friendly family running it. Great to get the mango and sweet rice dessert, but we so rarely have room. Also their lettuce wrapped chicken appetizer is great, but not on menu and you need to ask for it, ahead being best.

My husband was stationed in Thailand for a year and loved the food there. Most places we try are disappointing to him. NOT Tong Phoon! Very good food, great service. We will be back! As we left I said, "I'd definitely eat there again!" My husband replied, "Tomorrow night?"

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 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
