Tommy Thai is one of the semi-secret good Thai restaurants in the area. It's unassuming and located in a strip mall close to the Kirkland Costco. The food is quite good, and there is rarely if ever a wait.

Our favorite dishes were the Tom Kah Gai soup (the best around, in my opinion), and the Panang Curry. Both are absolutely bursting with flavor. It's hard to go wrong with anything on their menu though. Prawns with black bean sauce, Pad Kee Mao, other curries and seafood dishes, are all very good. The one low spot is their Pad Thai. It's such a staple, and yet I don't really care for their recipe. Aside from that, you get very good food for reasonable prices and a convenient location. Definitely worth a regular visit.

Bottom Line: Tucked-away restaurant with some of the best Thai food in the area.
