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.

Very good food, authentic, different from standard high street Indian food. Would love to see a dosa on the menu...

The food is excellent, particularly the butter paneer. The selection for vegetarians generally is really good. The atmosphere is ruined slightly by it being quite loud but that largely just down to the size of the restaurant.

1 hour reservation is too short, we need a minimum of 1hr 15 mins to avoid being rushed.

Due to high demand in the weekend, we are always busy with large number of early reservations,Therefore, time slots are allocated for individual tables. However, for your future reservation, you can always request for extra time allocation which will potentially resolve this issue.

Amazing food and service, an hour for the table isn’t really long enough for a busy Friday evening, ideally would have liked an hour and a half but weren’t rushed out!

Too noisy. If booking ask for table in alcove or up some steps. Myself and friends all left restaurant hoarse. Beware chicken biryani contains bones put me off. Garlic Nan odd looked like pesto on top. Would I return probably not. Perfect venue for stag or when party.

Thanks a lot for the review about your recent visit at TukTuk. I am sorry to be informed about your experience. I have provided your feedback to the relevant department and this complaint will get investigated further down the line. For noise issues, I would like to recommend for your future reservations, please ask for quie section while booking eg: king's theatre or back room. Chicken biriyani is on the bone as it's quite unique and has been mentioned on our menu inside the restaurant and online. Garlic nan don't have pesto, has got fresh garlic and coriander paste as per as your concern. Additionally, Tuk tuk always has been people's favourite when it comes to big party bookings. Hopefully we will serve you again in future and will assure you to have a better experience Regards Guest relations manager
