Tuk Tuk review
9/10
Upon entering the restaurant my friend and I were greeted kindly and shown to a quaint little table with plates and cups in the middle. I really loved the idea of this restaurant; think tapas with an Indian twist. The menu consists of many small, reasonably-priced dishes, and it’s recommended to get about three per person. As we hadn’t been here before, the lovely staff clearly explained how the menu and style of food worked before we made our choices. We ordered from the ‘Express Tiffin’ Lunch deal menu, and also picked their recommended side dish of ‘Dahi Kachori’ which arrived first. The Dahi Kachori was a real mouthful of flavours, a puri (deep-fried bread) filled with yoghurt, spices and chutneys. When I ordered I was a little apprehensive about whether I’d like it as it was served cold. However, I’d probably recommend it to anyone visiting as it ended up being my favourite dish.

A great pre-theatre dinner venue in Edinburgh for people of all ages. My 10 year old loved it! Food was delicious, the staff were attentive and lovely. We’ll definitely come again!

I have eaten here many times as it is one of the great no fuss Indian eateries, and along with my family we have never had anything to complain about. Great food, nice variety of flavours.If you are going to the Kings Theatre then this is a perfect pre-show alternative. BUT...I'm so disappointed that the mixed grill has now been taken off the menu. A sad day for us carnivores.

Our server split some food on my wife’s jacket and then tried to unsuccessfully clean it. I was expecting the restaurant to take responsibility and comp our meal (or a portion of it) - however they didn’t. Overall, food is good, service is iffy and the place is really loud/noisy.

First time at Tuk Tuk and was very pleased - we were well looked after by the lovely front of house team - very attentive even on a busy Friday night. We’ll definitely be back.

Three of us dined. Would have preferred starters to be served before mains rather than together as mains cold by the time we got to them . Overall good food and excellent value

You have got your food down to a fine art. The service was poor though. We had to wait 15 minutes just to order and a further 25 minutes just to get our bill. What annoyed me more was the waiting staff were busy and management were standing around doing nothing and even looked at our table a few times. When I did ask a manager for the bill he asked a server to get it! Come on learn some decent management and employee engagement skills. Will not return based on that fact alone... I hate employers who make their staff work hard and think they are to good to muck in!

Slow service/ ignored by one ‘manager’. Finally tho the food quality and price almost made up. A v noisy group made it a difficult lunch for my older guests. Could be 5 star!
