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.

Great food and amazing portion sizes. Korma is possibly the best I have ever tasted. Cannot believe I had never been before. Staff really helpful and made sure we enjoyed what we had. Would definitely go back again

The food was, as always, really delicious, and the staff friendly and inviting. However, it has to be said something a bit off-putting happened when we came to pay. The bill was provided bit didn't appear to have the Government "Dine Out" discount taken off. We double checked to ensure the restaurant was participating (by looking again online) and that our booking was valid for the scheme. When the waiter returned with the card machine I asked if we could have the discount - this was met immediately with "oh you want the discount?" and he went off and produced the new bill. Totally understand that the scheme is newly in operation and I would normally be willing to give the benefit of the doubt, but we were unfortunately left with the feeling that we wouldn't have received the discount had we not asked. As you know, this is not how the scheme operates - in other restaurants it is simply automatically included on the bill - so this experience really felt a bit disappointing.

First dinner out since lockdown and couldn’t have enjoyed a meal more! Service from staff was excellent as was the food. Most importantly, staff and surroundings made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Social distancing between tables was well thought out and we all felt very safe. Thank you Tuk Tuk!

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.
