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 busy and loud so hard to hold a conversation. Not sure that piped music is needed when it is so busy. Maybe worth giving customers info on what are likely to be quieter / less busy times. Food nice but something on the menu to show what is hot and what is cold would be great. Many thanks to staff though for excellent service.

Excellent food at good prices, with BYOB keeping the cost down. Friendly, fast and efficient service. The place was very busy when we visited which gave it a lively atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely food, but too much! Waitress said the portions were small and suggested 2-3 per person, but we found this way too much for five people, both in the mains and the sides. Felt bad at food left over. Very loud too, so difficult to have a conversation, but service good and byob, so overall enjoyed the night.

Like this restaurant and very convenient for the King's Theatre. Our waitress was so helpful and friendly even chasing our desert as we had left ourselves a little short of time for the theatre.

Had such an amazing dinner here. The food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was great..especially being BYOB. It was the best curry and paneer we had ever had.

Great food as always. Though I thought some ‘extras’ expensive eg glass for two of our group to have thimble of wine cost £2, pompadom pickles cost more than the 4 pompadoms!

We visited before going to see a show at the Kings Theatre and as it was across the road it was ideal for a pre-theatre meal. It was casual and atmosphere was great and the staff were very friendly and efficient. The food was really tasty and came in good size portions. There was a good variety for vegetarian options. The only criticism we had was that the waitress recommended we have 3 or 4 dishes each as they were 'tapa' size portions. We didn't take her advice and were glad because portions were a good size and we would have had a lot of food wastage. It would also have gone from a reasonable priced meal to very expensive! Would highly recommend and we will be going back!

We have been twice now and really enjoy Tuk Tuk. The only thing I can fault is the noise level - the restaurant can be very very loud, making it difficult to hear your own party. (It was particularly challenging for family with hearing issues.) Maybe you could add some soft furnishings to absorb some of the sound? Otherwise brilliant food, service, and definitely good VFM. Will be back again soon!

For your future reservations, we would appreciate if you can request for a table in King's theatre section or the back room section which is comparatively less noisy. It will easily resolve the issues which you have faced this time. Hope to serve you again in the near future Regards Guest Relations Manager
