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 food and service was excellent but the restaurant was cold. Unfortunately this meant the food got cold quickly.

Shiva was fantastic. The food was amazing as was the mangotini (as we can't drink alcohol it was a good substitute) The only thing I just wish you were busier but thanks covid! First time visiting but I will definitely be back.

The food and service at TukTuk is still delivered to the same high standard but due to no fault of theirs the Covid restrictions have taken away from the atmosphere, Please don’t let that put you off if you want an authentic Indian street food experience!

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