This place has been many incarnations over the years and we have been to all of them. Having a restaurant a walk from home has always been great. We have been here twice since Tuk Tuk opened (never tried them when just the food truck)....More

Stopped by with friends and family from around NZ. The service started very well but slowly drifted off and we found we had to ask repeatedly for the meals we had ordered. The ambience was a little noisy and the door to an outdoor seating...More

A group of us went there for dinner. Pleasant service and realistic prices, but a long wait for the food. The menu is very basic: about 4 standard starters, including good curry puffs, then a fairly short list of run-of-the-mill Thai dishes - for each...More

Out for a drive one weekend and planned to stop at Pauatahanui, and found that the restaurant had changed. But, what a fabulous change. The service was a bit slow, given there weren't that many covers, but the food was fresh and authentic, and great...More

Authentic Thai made with a passion for real Thai food. Nothing worse than going to a Thai Restaurant and not getting an authentic Thai meal as expected. Here at Tuk Tuk Thai we will ensure that every dish is as authentic as you would get back in Thailand. We are very proud of our authenticity, in a relax and friendly environment. Great food with friendly staff and beautiful surroundings.
