My wife and I usually stay away from Thai restaurants because she is from Thailand and they usually aren't very authentic; not Tong Thai! I had the beef noodle soup and she had the chicken Lard Na (gai) and they were both delicious!!! The ambiance was very nice and the people working inside were all Thai and lent to that... More

The reason is because it is the best! I've eaten here for years, it's my favorite restaurant! The pepper seafood or the chicken larb are great. These people know you, treat you like family. House rolls are a delight. I can't go long without my Tong's fix. Prices are good, rice is always cooked properly. Just good eating. I once... More

My friend and I shared the spring rolls and each had a bowl of beef noodle soup. The spring rolls have a distinctive, crunchy, flavorful breading and are delicious wrapped in lettuce. We added lots of onion, cilantro, fresh basil, lime juice, and bean sprouts to the tender beef soup. The bowl was huge - I took half home. Love... More

I have been to Thailand a couple of times and Thong's Thai is very close to the real thing. Can highly recommend the Tom Kai Gai and the Satay as appetizer. Excellent service from a very friendly staff.

Tongs has actually been featured on the Food network and wins best Thai restaurant most every year. That should probably tell you something. Ive been going for 25 years and never get tired of it. They also have a Sushi bar and bubble teas.

Hands down one of my favorite places to eat on the Northeast side of San Antonio. Great staff, Amazing sushi bar, Delicious food and Perfectly refreshing Jasmine and Bubba teas. I think I've tried just about every dish on their menu and have never been disappointed. Their lunch specials are your money's worth!

A S.A classic and a must try! Please order the cucumber salad you will be a happier person in life! I'm daydreaming about it now. The spring roll and lemon grass chicken were both flavorful and very filling. You can call in your order and just walk in and out if you're in hurry
