Great Taste for Street Food Concept
Tuk Tuk provided you with different Thai dining experience that you may want to try. Our family loves Thai food and tries so many Thai restaurants in Atlanta. Curries are not only Thai dishes that most of Thai restaurants try to sell or emphasis. Thai food offers varieties and cultural experience. Tuk Tuk displayes and choose their menu list well. Thai desserts are some thing that are not the same as American style desserts; however, they have a lot to offer as far as sweetness is concerned. Try tapioca pudding. It's delicious. It's no doubt for us to go back again and again for next eat-out dining.

Overall great experience
Food was delicious with a variety of vegetarian options. We brought a baby with us and it was no problem at all.
Service was fast and really friendly.
It was my third time there and I can only recommend it.

Food was very good...loved the roti with green curry, fried rice, Penang curry and of course, the lychee martini. I definitely recommend this place!

I met a guy for a first date here recently and we sat out on the balcony. While the date didn't fare well the food and service were very good. They allowed us time to chat, but when we were finally ready to order, they were front and center. I've been to Tuk Tuk several times and have always liked what I've gotten. They have a nice enough wine list and some funky cocktails. The ambiance is fun but not over the top. I've been here with a large and a small group, on a date and with a buddy to catch up. I don't think this is the best restaurant to which to bring kids. I look forward to going back.

Thai the right way!!!
The food was great! I love the feel when you have to ride the elevator to the top to the restaurant. I ordered a Thai Tea for my beverage (flawless). The Tom Yum soup was tangy, yet savory, but also hearty all at once!!! I the beef skewers were cooked to perfection and the chili sauce that comes with it is the perfect compliment. And last but not least, the panang curry chicken was the best I've ever had anywhere!! The spice have it the perfect kick; however, it's not enough to diminish the flavor of the dish. All in all, this place is definitely a hidden gem and they have definitely made me a customer for life!!!

Great Saturday on the balcony
Had a 6:45 reservation Saturday made on Open Table. Even called to confirm it directly with the restaurant as I was taking a date and wanted to request an outside table with a view of the city. Arrived at 6:43 and the two women at the reception area said they did not see my reservation. They also told me they were not sure if we could have an outside table, but from what I saw the balcony/deck had open tables. After I pressed a little, and told them I had not only made the reservation on open table, but also called to confirm the balcony table, they were able to seat us outside.
Andy was our server-he was great...even brought out a trio of extra spices for our dinner. Enjoyed good service and a wonderful dinner once we were seated.

Excellent food. We had party of four and i tried all meals. Uniformly good. Different fare from most thai restaurants in atlanta.

Great Food, poor seating
Great location, awesome food and nice service is how I would rate this restaurant. I am sure the view from this third floor restaurant would be great. However, the seating arrangements are such that unless you are the lucky few that get seating in the balcony, there is no view. Half of the windows are blocked by the bar, and what remains is available only to folks who could grab the couple of tables in the patio :(

We Will be Back
Took by Fiancé out on a date; He loved this place. the ambience was wonderful, and the food was amazing! Server wasn't as attentive as we normally like, but overall it was great!

Date-night at Tuk Tuk
I took my boyfriend here for his 21st birthday using the Tuk Tuk birthday email coupon (free entree on your birthday). He loved it, and he's a big Thai food fan; we both thought it was the best Thai we have had. I wouldn't say it was romantic scene, so we'll probably go again for a lunch instead. The desserts are very unique, so if you're tight on money like us, I would suggest skipping an appetizer and choosing a dessert.

where's the hostess?
My friend and me, and another set of guests were just waiting in the lobby for a good 5 minutes before anyone came to seat us - and this around 7:15pm which is peak dinner time. I think I saw the hostess bringing a takeout meal to a couple at the bar but then she was just visiting with them at the bar - she should've noticed the two sets of guests just standing there in the waiting area, wondering where anyone is.
Also it was hard to tell who our server was b/c there were 2 or 3 different ones. And they weren't always around either - when our 3rd guest came, we ended up asking the server at the next table to get our server but I think she forgot b/c it took a while before anyone came.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Real Thai delightfully done
Food (small plates) were universally excellent. Observant but not hovering staff. Porch at sunset a romantic spot.

John the Manager is so amazing!
John the Manager is so amazing! We have known him for years and Tuk Tuk is our special "go to" spot because of the service and food!!!

Sleek and modern, and oh so tasty
When we first arrived we noticed a variety of people eating here, from families with little kids to romantic couples to a large-ish group of college students. I suspect they were all here because the food is great. We began with satay kai (chicken), which was delicious and was served with a zippy peanut sauce. We had Ba-Mee Moo Dang (pork and noodles), Kow Mun Kai (chicken with ginger), and Pla Sahm Rod (Asian white fish). We also ordered a Roti Ke-yow Whan (bread with a curry dipping sauce). Everything was pleasing to the eye as well as the palate. The only disappointment was not being able to order the sparkling lychee sake. It's on the menu but has not been available for months. The lychee martini was a fine substitute.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had requested to be seated away from high traffic areas of the restaurant. My request was honored and we were seated at what was probably the best table in the restaurant. Thank you!
The food was excellent and well presented. The waitstaff were attentive and extremely pleasant.
This was a first visit and I will be back. But considering the high ceilings and resulting high noise level, I'd consider it best as a lunch spot, not a romantic dinner spot.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and drink selection was good. The waiter did an excellent job in selection the drinks and food. Hard place to find looking for the street. Very romantic.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of my favorite spots to grab a bite or cocktail in Atlanta. Chef Dee Dee's menu is full of surprises with some Thai street food recipes that you can't get anywhere but here. I recommend a sampling of small plates. So fun! They have an excellent bar - a nice outdoor patio overlooking the skyline, and the service is always terrific. Don't miss the homemade beef jerky and sticky rice. They also have all the classics - masaman, panang, pad thai - if your in the mood for your go to Thai dish. It's spacious, nicely designed and is also great for large parties. The food is beautifully presented and every bite tastes as good as it looks. The bonus - It's super convenient and there is lots of free parking. A must try.

First time and loved all the different favors perfectly combined...

Favorite for Business Dinners
Tuk Tuk is my favorite midtown business dinner restaurant. The prices are reasonable and the food is delicious. Fit for foodies. The fried snapper is fabulous, and if you ever have an opportunity to have the Chef's Special (muscles, shrimp, and calamari), you won't be disappointed. I always request extra heat on the special and they never disappoint. When the weather is nice, it's great to eat out on the balcony b/c of the fabulous view of the midtown skyline.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
tuk tuk was good good!
we had a spectacular time! everything was so good and the service was really authentic!

Our appreciation and thanks
We including our guests from out of town found Tuk Tuk to be the best Thai restautant in Atlanta. The food was great, service was excellent and ambience was very pleasing. We'll visit this restaurant often and will recommend all our friends to try out Tuk Tuk at least once.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
You can't miss with Tuk Tuk. Consistent food and service. Great!
9/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Solid Thai option
My favorite Thai is Mali in the Highlands and though this is "different'" I would say the quality is comparable. I live closer to this restaurant and I would definitely visit again. The prices are reasonable, the staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is lively.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing Food, Phenom Service
This is the second time that I dined @ Tuk Tuk. I sat outside this time. The weather was perfect and the food was divine. The staff are very knowledgeable about the menu and do a fantastic job making recommendations. The beef skewers, roti, panang curry and Lychee martini are divine. I will definitely make a 3rd trip there.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have loved Thai cuisine my whole life, and over the years I have turned my wife on to it as well. I researched Thai restaurants in Atlanta and came accross Tuk Tuk. The food and atmosphere was everything I expected and more.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superb Thai Gem
Tuk Tuk is truly a gem. Thai-style street food that is incredibly tasty and the right portion sizes. The ingredients tasted farm fresh, the variety of items was wonderful and the preparation was superb. The Asian White fish is incredible! And the service was as outstanding as the food. I highly recommend this true gem to the Atlanta restaurant scene!

Enjoyable experience and the food was good too. Thanks

Great Food, Something Different
I saw a story about Tuk Tuk on a local TV food show called "Atlanta Eats". The restaurant looked like it had a very cool atmosphere with fresh unusual Thai dishes that the Chef talked about growing up eating in Thailand. Recipes her Grandmother used to make. It all looked so delicious on the show I just had to try it. And I was not disappointed. It was really great. Everything I hoped for. And the group I was with, loved it. I'll definitely be back. Plus it's fun trying a lot of different small plates. I highly recommend you try this place if you like Thai/Asian cuisine.

Tuk Tuk Boogies
We learned of this restaurant by watching Atlanta Eats. After several efforts to make the 40 mile trip into Atlanta, we finally made it. It is well worth the distance. Our dining experience was excellent from start to finish. We were very pleased with the food, the service, and the ambiance. This is a restaurant we will re-visit in the very near future and beyond.

Among the very best Thai places
Among the very best Thai places in the city. Believe the hype.

Yummy Food, Great Experience!
We were with a Thai Food aficionado -- not only did we love it, but he did too! We had 3 appetizers and 4 entrees - all were fabulous! Service was attentive and helpful, but not at all intrusive - a great balance!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in a rush to get to symphony after being in awful traffic....our server was amazing.....got our drinks immediately...and the food was perfect....always enjoy!

I really love it place! Great
I really love it place! Great atmosphere and good food! Will go back again.

Not your regular strip mall Thai restaurant - excellent and interesting choices to eat from whether tapas-style (the ribs are great!) or regular main course style
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Alternative to Tamarind Seed
We frequented Tamarind Seed many times in the past because the food is excellent but after being turned away when we arrived 10 min before close, we sought out an alternative for Thai. We gave Tuk Tuk a try and needless to say we were not disappointed.
Initially we were a little worried because we made reservations online and arrived minutes early, was seated promptly, then sat for at least 10 minutes before the waitress approached the table. Once she began serving us we didn't have any other issues with service as the food came out quickly (< ten minutes) and there was another friendly guy approaching the table at least three times to check on us. The food was very tasty and very well priced, will be back.

Great food, excellent service.
Great food, excellent service. I've taken a different group of friends each time we have been there and every time people have said how much they enjoyed it.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great night out!
As soon as we entered we received great customer service! The food came out quickly and everything was great!
I would recommend the small plates. The Ribs are the best i have ever tasted!!! Great for foodies! Perfect for Date night.
If you love Great Drinks, try the Black Mojito. It was A great night thanks to the staff and the great food!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Yummy but tricky!
Tuk Tuk has tasty, dependable Thai food & good service. However, don't be lured in by the $8 lunch specials sign they keep parked out front. There is only 1 'special' & it never changes - it's the fried rice.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Bell runs it well . Ate at
Bell runs it well . Ate at bar fun as always great food service. Feel at home.

Loved it (again)
We met another couple for an early dinner. We had the pad thai and chicken masaman curry - both very good. For an appetizer we had the spinach leaves with peanuts - also delicious. Our server did a great job.
The only thing that was difficult was the noise level as time went on. A couple of us have a hard time hearing conversation with a lot of ambient noise, and the open design of the restaurant made a large table of jolly friends particularly loud. Otherwise, we love it here, and we'll certainly be back.

Tuk Tuk Paradise!
I adored this restaurant! The ambiance was perfect for my Great Aunt and I to enjoy our traditional Pre-Thanksgiving dinner. This restaurant gave the feeling of warmth and welcome. Our server, Sarita I believe, was fantastic! I found her to be sweet, attentive, knowledgeable, and overall a joy to have as a server. She really enhanced the dining experience by helping us navigate the menu and finally come to a decision on food (which was so hard to do)! The menu was fantastic as my Aunt and I sampled many things from the appetizer menu and the entrees were delightful. She had the Fried Snapper entree and all I can say is that the dish was fresh, light but filling, and crispy not oily. All around the food was everything I hoped for and more!
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
I used to live nearby and frequented this place. Now I'm way out in the suburbs, And I still go back. Great food, great service, and a great view.
