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.

The curries are tasty, however the starters and delicacies that they have advertised only resemble the dish in appearance but don't taste great.

Great food and very fast service. Only small annoyance was having to keep getting the waiters attention to refill our small water glasses - would have appreciated a jug of tap water to be left on the table

We booked for 8 and had to wait. This was disappointing because we were aware of the relatively short window we had to eat. As a group we felt rushed at the end.

Very noisy, I couldn’t hear the waiter, who was also very pushy and made us order too much food that we then couldn’t eat but still paid for it! I won’t come back as I think that for the money I paid, I could have gone to a nicer Indian restaurant
