We went there together with our son and his wife. We would never have found it, but our son knew the location. The restaurant was about half full, but our lunch took about an hour after ordering to be served. Nevertheless the food was outstanding.

The venue is pleasant and the staff very helpful. While it was a very cold and wet night it did take some time for the dinning area to heat up. The dinning menu is varied as is the take-away version. If you like spicy meals...More

We visited and ate just after they'd opened and while the menu choice wasn't as comprehensive as we'd have like it, we enjoyed our food immensely. We look forward to our next visit.

Waited almost two hours for our food. Staff inattentive with no explanation of delays. I have never waited so long for food before and while the food was nice, it was extremely disappointing. It was our first visit too, which made it even worse. Put...More

More than three months ago, when Tuk Tuk Thai first migrated from a food truck to a full service restaurant I reviewed it and said the food was great but they didn't yet have a liquor licence - and, to be honest, there were some...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.
