Very nice experience here. Relaxed, friendly staff and amazing food. Limited menu, but I always see that as a good sign which means everything is freshly cooked. Go here if you like curry!
Tonight we enjoyed another fabulous meal served by helpful friendly staff. Would highly recommend. We will definitely be back again very soon. Thank you Tuk Tuk.
Excellent experience. went not knowing what to expect. We both had starters and mains which we had never heard of before and they were all excellent. Was bit more than I expected to pay midweek but considering the dishes we had (Large Prawns) probably well worth it. Small bistro with excellent staff and food. Already booked again.
Amazing food and great service. Definitely worth a visit. Main course took a while to come but they were very busy and everything is cooked to order so we didn’t mind.
We had been bought a gift voucher for Tuk Tuk for our Wedding Anniversary by my sisters. There was a lovely atmosphere when we stepped into the restaurant, different lanterns hanging from the ceiling. A waitress was telling a table of ladies about different dishes. Very friendly staff took our order and gave us advice on some of the dishes we asked about. They looked amazing, beautifully presented and tasted wonderful all 3 courses. We will definitely return with our family the next time.
Best Thai food outside Thailand!! I came here with high expectations from what I’d been told, also having travelled extensively through Thailand and done a cooking course out there I had set myself up for something pretty special. Tuk tuk delivered and then some!! I can’t recommend this place highly enough, I will be back very very soon and am planning to take the extended family in a fortnight when they visit from England! Keep up the great work!!
Was a bought a voucher for Tuk Tuk as a birthday present; and was my first visit. The staff were very welcoming, the restaurant was clean however would advise booking as the Bistro is not that big and was full when we were there. The food, albeit a little spicy, was fantastic. Bonus was that the Bistro is Bring Your Own; and would have to say that I will be back in the not too distant future.
Excellent night at Tuk Tuk, we were celebrating my daughters birthday and had a great night. The food was excellent and the desserts were unusual, also excellent. We had been looked after really well by Pamela and James, who answered ‘all’ our questions about the food and the restaurant. Thank you for a great night, see you all again soon. xx
cant fault the food or the portions for adults or kids only gripe we had nobody mentioned the specials and we didn't notice the board as we heard other diners mention it as well its above the till and having one toilet does not help yes its a small place so you have to respect the lack of room but the food is really top notch
Sim and Monica were fantastic in explaining the dishes to us and even though we have been many times it’s nice to be reminded and experience new dishes. Especially as this was my husbands birthday a special effort and celebration was made. Can’t wait until we go back. Thank you, Elizabeth Finlay
