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.

Garlic naan was amazing. Would also recommend the masala chips. It is also a BYOB which we didn’t know before. Would definitely go back.

The restaurant was very noisy. We were 2 people but sat at a table surrounded by big groups so couldn’t even hear each other talk/the waiter explaining the menu to us. The food was good but we felt that 1 hour was not long enough and felt very rushed. We would have liked to order desserts but were handed the bill and told they needed the table back (we hadn’t finished eating) The food was good but would not go back on a Saturday night again, especially not if only allowed 1 hour.

The food was excellent. The atmosphere was good as was the value for money. The service was average. Here are my thoughts: In most restaurants, you get asked for your drinks first then your food order. In this case, we got asked for our drinks and food at the same time. Then 5 minutes later, some colleagues got their drinks and others (including myself) didn't. The food then arrived, however some dishes were still cooking and didn't arrive for a few minutes (peshwari naan for example). Eventually, the remaining drinks and food were served late. I've never went to a restaurant where my drink has been served after my food has arrived.

Amazing food and very reasonable prices. However The 1 hour sitting time isn’t great, feel very rushed to eat and finish your drinks within the timescale. Wouldn’t go a miss extending that by 30 mins just to enjoy the experience more

By far the best Indian food in Edinburgh. The whole experience is great, it's not your traditional Indian fare so don't go expecting a starter and a main course, the food is great and the Wallah staff curry is outstanding.
