A very busy Saturday night in the restaurant but this did not impact on the quality of the food. A first visit for a few in our party and they have said it won't be their last.
Food,as always, excellent. Staff very attentive and friendly disputed being busy. Need to book in advance to be sure you get it. Great experience overall.

Delicious food with a good range of menu and specials. Food cooked fresh but well worth the wait. Staff very attentive and friendly. Will definitely be back.
So excited to see a new restaurant in Greyabbey on the Ards peninsula, particularly one whose (excellent) reputation goes before it. The original Tuk Tuk restaurant in Newtownards has had excellent reviews. Set in a charming, beautifully-renovated, building in the High Street, the staff and ambience were welcoming. The menu looked interesting and authentic. My wife ordered Chicken Satay Skewers to start which was good. I ordered Malaysian Curry Puffs which were excellent - as light as a cloud! For main, my wife ordered Penang Curry which was disappointing - it contained a very measly portion of chicken. A couple at a nearby table, who are regulars at Tuk Tuk, were also disappointed with this dish - not up to its usual standard. I ordered the 'Special' - Crispy Beef with soft noodles. When my meal arrived, I noticed that it contained about half a dozen interesting-looking chillies. This didn't worry me too much as I enjoy medium-spicy. The crispy beef was very tasty. In my second mouthful I included a whole chilli. Well! My poor wife thought I was having a stroke! For a full 10 mins I bilged and swilled with cold water. With iron resolve I resisted the urge to leave the restaurant and go outside to howl at the moon! Having recovered my composure, I carefully moved the remaining 5 chillies to the side of the plate and mentioned their ferocity to the passing waiter. He dismissed my concerns saying: "They're relatively mild dried chillies - we have some really fierce ones!" I wish I'd invited him to eat one there and then. To check that I hadn't bizarrely lost my tolerance to spicy food I asked my wife to try a tiny sliver of one of the offending chillies. Her reaction was similar to mine. I remain convinced that the chef had accidentally used a mis-labelled bag of birds eye chillies. In summary: This restaurant is a welcome edition to the choice of eateries in the Ards peninsula and its food is probably pretty good. However, beware inadequate warnings regarding spiciness/mistaken ingredients.
Starters of fish cakes and chicken satay skewers .... Delicious. Loads of flavour and a generous portion without crowding your plate. Main courses: took advice and reccomendation from very helpful knowledgeable young guy who served us. We had specials of salted chilli sea bass. This dish was delivered with sweet potato fries. Presentation was excellent and taste to match. My main was Thai Tao Bohn chicken with fried rice (hope that is the right spelling)... It was spectacular. Full of flavour in every bite. Rice was recommended by waiter who was spot on with both courses. Highly recommend Tuk Tuk in Greyabbey. Excellent food, excellent surroundings and excellent staff.
My first experience of this restaurant - a busy Saturday night with lots of customers and a good atmosphere. I had a salad to start,but the dressing was much hotter than I expected and I had to drink lots of water. The main course, a duck dish with noodles, was lovely with subtle flavours. All in all a positive experience, and i'll certainly go back. Because the restaurant was so busy, service was a little slow, but that gave us time to talk so our group didn't mind that. Staff were attentive and friendly I think the menu could be improved by highlighting the "hotness " of the various dishes more clearly - there is information there but you have to look for it.
Went at lunch time during the week so it was very quiet bit staff were lovely. Starters were great. I opted for one of the specials which was on the board (no price shown). I got about 7 bits of salted chilli chicken and fried rice. It was ok, I honestly expected more taste wise. However when paying the bill I was charged just under £15-for the chicken alone. For a new business in a small village, and at lunch time where the portion was small and taste was just ok, I was astounded and honestly so disappointed with the cost of this meal. I would go again but I'll make sure to order something else....and check the price. When compared with other places and take aways I would have been better off getting a meal from a takeaway, it would have been half the price and double the portion with the same level of taste if not better.
Food is a real treat great atmosphere, noisy in the busy Restruant not a problem. Great choice of food for our Vegan guest explained options and was very well catered for and we still had our meat options. Service was v good but due to freshly cooked food there was a slight delay on the main courses. However the starters were quick and the mains came together which was great. BTO is a bonus too!
Very slow service arrived no seats available had to move another couple. When we were seated we were told menu would be explained along with Specials as no one could see the boards a young male staff hardly new about the dishes babbled his way though our choices would need more training as we had friends with us who had never been before it was dissapointing we enjoyed the food but seemed to under pressure as was full house that nite
