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.

Our group had an absolutely fantastic night a Tuk Tuk - the perfect place for a team night out. The food was brilliant, the staff were so helpful and BYOB meant it was really good value. I have already recommended the restaurant and we will definitely be back! Thanks Tuk Tuk!

Food was excellent. Only thing that would have been better was for the fish cakes starter to arrive before the curry mains - just didn't taste the same after a big bit of spice!

We were a group of four pensioners so not maybe the typical demographic for the place but the food was very well produced and the portions were fine for us. Following the guidance on the menu sheets helped us make good choices and the sharing of the plates was good fun. Perhaps it was a bit tricky when one person was waiting 10 mins while others were eating their main course and their dishes were not what suited the customer. However overall we were more than pleasantly surprised and had a great early evening meal together. Well done. Donald

The food was delicious and the menu is great however, 1 hour for 2 people to eat a meal and share a bottle of wine is not long enough. My friend needed something checked in the kitchen when ordering and we were still rushed at the end to pay & leave. A waitress then started banging chairs setting up tables next to us and a more senior member of staff walked past us a couple of times counting tables and staring over. We felt very uncomfortable and will not be back

I'm only giving 3 stars for value for money due to the price of poppadoms/chutneys which we were not told would be a charge when asked if we wanted them. Also, £1.50 each for recycling, what does this mean? Needs to be explained on the menu

The food was good but the service wasn’t great. The waiter brought us the receipt without asking him for it and then he came again 2 minutes later with the card machine asking us to pay..We didn’t really like it as we still had drinks and that made us feel that we need to leave

I have always enjoyed this restaurant as it served nice food and was byob. The restaurant has now added recycling charges of £3.50 per person (even though we didn't leave our bottle for the restaurant to dispose of) This equate to over £10 corkage charge. I usually enjoy the food as well but yesterday my curry was luke warm and my garlic nan was cold. Not what I was expecting!

Thanks a lot for the review about your recent visit at TukTuk. I am sorry to be informed about your experience. I have provided your meal feedback to our kitchen and food service department and this complaint will get investigated further down the line. However, I am assuming there must have been an error made at some point as our recycle fee charges are £1.50 person, definitely not £3.50! So I would humbly request to you to write back to us at [email protected] with any copy of evidence so that we can look into this for a resolution down the line. Hope to serve you again in near future and will assure you to have a better experience, Regards Guest Experience Manager

We are regulars but don’t normally visit on a Saturday evening. Despite being very busy, service was slick. Food excellent as usual.although my friend didn’t like the potato pakora. We’ll ask for a table away from the entrance next time - bit chilly at times and lots of people queuing to get in
