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.

Had to repeatedly ask for coffee and then the bill - we had to be at the Kings Theatre for a 7.30 performance and coffee arrived at 7.20. Such a shame that had to happen as the meal was great. I understand you may have been busier than usual because of Valentines Day but the lovely coffee had to be rushed - will be back though! Why don't you do a pre-Theatre menu offer?

Had looked forward to coming here but overall, we were somewhat disappointed. The food in the main was average - the prawns were good but given they were £2.60 each, they should be. Service was not great and staff appeared disinterested - no water offerered, and I had to go to the counter to pay the bill - I still don't know if this is policy or not. Not a patch on Mother India's Cafe - the only thing in common being the concept.

Good food, lots of choices, beware: spicy curries are really spicy. I recommend the mint mambo. On the downside, portions are relatively small, 2 items + rice/naan make a decent sized plate.

Food was lovely Felt we were being rushed off our table . All starters came same time as main course which made our table overloaded with food .... no space and made for us to be spilling things . We questioned why it all came together .... reply was ....because that’s what happens here . I have been here twice before and has never happened . Long wait to ask for member of staff for juice etc . Customer service very impersonal ... we had 3 kids with us and no offer of desserts or sweets ..... we spent £125 and gave a generous tip . Unfortunately won’t be back again with my family .... really disappointed ☹️

The food was delicious, love the laid back casual dining experience. Unfortunately we live 2 hours away and would love something like this in Aberdeen. We will definitely be back next time in Edinburgh. Would highly recommend.

Restaurant Response

Hi Michael, We are sorry to hear that you weren't happy with your recent visit to Tuk Tuk. As per my knowledge, your table was reserved for 7:30 pm till 9:00 pm where as you came in at 7:45 pm (15 Minutes late without notice). We do understand people could get late sometime for many reason. But we did mention it to you before we got you seated that we will require table back by 9:00 pm as there is a big group coming at 9:00 pm. I agree we have asked you around 2 times to get the table back and that too after 9:00 pm which we got back at 9:08 pm while the next party was waiting to get seated who has booked the table for 9:00 pm. We thank you for your feedback and we have taken it on board. If you have any further comments you would like to leave with regards to your visit please email us at [email protected] we would like to hear from you. Many Thanks Tuk Tuk Indian Street

Food was really tasty but quite pricey for the portion size. Our table was right beside the door and everytime people came in (which was very frequent) we got hit by the cold winds.

I really enjoyed the food but found it all really spicy. I would return but know I need to ask for yoghurt with everything.

Whilst the food and service were outstanding the temperature of the room was unbelievably hot! I felt feint at some points. While it’s cold outside, it didn’t need to be that hot inside.

Only small criticism was we were a large group and struggled to find space on table for all our food orders - apart from that was absolutely fantastic - great food, great service, great atmosphere and amazing value for money.
