Critics Review
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.

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.

Really great food (expensive, but good). Not a great atmosphere or service. I appreciate the style of a street food restaurant (and the nature of a Saturday night in Edinburgh) but we were in and out within half an hour - food came far too quickly, all squeezed on a tiny table, staff were anxious that we left as soon as we had eaten so they could have the table back. Felt very uncomfortable. If it had been more relaxed and laid back it would have been perfect. Fitting as many customers into a restaurant as possible is good as long as it doesnt compromise the overall experience. In this case it did. A real shame because the food was amazing

Excellent evening, service a little sporadic but given how busy it was this was understandable. All dishes were excellent.

Overall lovely and service great. However it is slightly misleading to advertise vegan options when in fact they are cooked in the same fryer as non vegan products, making them non vegan. The vegan options were the main reason we booked and had been told over the phone that ALL vegan options were cooked separately. It was disappointing to find this was not the case.
