  • "First time going. Food was great. Ambiance was great. Not loud or noisy. Will be back many times"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Everything was amazing. Only issue is that apps came out before we could have our wine decanted. Normally this isn't an issue, but we were done with our first apps when the wine was decanted. Other than that we loved everything and will be back again shortly!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The beef jerky is one of the best cooked meals I have ever eaten. The whole red snapper is good too and you can freak out your guests with the eyeballs (or take them home to the cat for even more fun)."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The place was nice and colorful. Food was good and our server was really nice. She greet us by saying Swadee kah, she was very sweet and smiling all the time. All the dishes we order were great, the bite size samosas, beef salad and Padthai. Will definitely visit again and recommend our friends."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "They offer a nice variety of appetizers, entrees and a daily lunch special that is served in stacked aluminum tins. The specials are usually quite tasty and give people a chance to try a few dishes. If you like fried chicken you should try Tuk Tuk's twist on this dish. They only offer it on Monday nights. It comes with three pieces, accompanied by three tasty dipping sauces, an Asian mango sweet shredded salad and sticky rice...Yum! Enjoy this neighborhood gem and gathering place."

  • "My new favorite restaurant ! Great space awesome views! Delish views and attentive wait staff! Can't wait to go back. Earnest our waiter recommended the fish and it was delish!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Tuk Tuk is our 8 year olds favorite restaurant and ours too! He chose it as his Bon Voyage dinner with friends before leaving for summer camp. It is great for well behaved kids before 8:30pm. On the weekends it gets a bit trendy and date night after 8:30. The lunch box option allows you to try lots of their menu at 1/2 the cost. Lunch menu is $10 but tastes like $15-20! "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "I went there to have a quick bite and a drink while enjoying the views from the patio. Instead, we sat at the bar (we still had a great view of the skyline) where we had cocktails, appetizers, and entrees that were all so delicious that I've already planned my next visit. I can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We started with appetizers : spare ribs, chickenand shrimp dumplings and chicken satay... All was delicious! Drinks: Black mojito and Mai Tai... Good but not great. Our dinner consisted of fried rice, shrimp, shrimp and calamari entree and curry chicken and shrimp noodle. We decided to try some of the desserts as well. We had the fried banana and coconut ice cream and fried ice cream. We enjoyed ourselves so much we decided to go outside and enjoy the view of the city. The weather was so pleasant we ended up being there until they closed... Yess they had to put us out with another large party that was outside. "

  • "I loved the food the first time I dined at Tuk Tuk. I suggested the restaurant to a friend who had not been to Tuk Tuk, and the restaurant did not disappoint us. The food was delicious, and the service was warm and friendly. We did not have to wait long for our food, even though there were many customers there to eat. It seemed as though we had plenty to eat, including desserts, and the final bill was great. We give it two thumbs up."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "From the friendly, prompt service to the delicious, flavorful food (what a delightful gluten-free menu!), our Tuk Tuk experience was memorable in every way. The ambiance is glorious, and the Thai authenticity is legit! We are already looking forward to our next opportunity to visit..."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Our first visit to Tuk Tuk was a very pleasant surprise. The food was excellent and priced at a level that represented excellent value. Service was attentive. The only thing that detracted from an otherwise very enjoyable experience was that the actual time to bring the food to the table was painfully slow. I would like to believe that this was because our visit was on the Monday evening of a holiday weekend and that the restaurant was understaffed."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Delicious Thai. Enjoyed Spicy Basil Tofu. Veggies were crisp and fresh, flavors were right and clean. My dining companion raved about her green curry. We were traveling, but if we lived in ATL, would go back."

  • "Our server Mani was very attentive and food was awesome!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "My friend and I were in town for our college reunion and I read wonderful things about this restaurant on Open Table. It did not dissapoint. We also looked at Yelp for dish recommendations and so I highly recommend the beef skewers appetizer and the Lychee martini. Both were excellent. I can't wait to come back to Atlanta to try this restaurant again!"

  • "Great drinks, great food, great service, timely, everyone friendly"

  • "We have spent a great deal of time in Thailand enjoying fabulous Thai meals at five star restaurants there. Tuk Tuk measures up to the best of those with excellent imaginative appetizers and entrees, all presented beautifully. The service was also excellent with our server, Mani, being most attentive to our every need. The decor is upscale sophisticated Thai. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Atlanta. "

  • "The food was excellent and the presentation was great. We had a very nice dinner and will be coming back!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "The food was excellent. I recommend the fried shrimp appetizer. Our server was great too, but Tuk Tuk needs to fix the issues with drink orders. It took 30 minutes for our martinis to arrive. We finally received our drinks when we were finishing appetizers (party of two). We would have ordered more drinks, but we didn't want them to arrive when we were finished with dinner."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Spent the evening at Tuk Tuk with friends and I must say we all had a wonderful time. I highly recommend going there for dinner not only because of the great ambiance but also the sultry lit bar, dim lights and candles. The restaurant is slightly hidden because it’s on the top floor in a shopping plaza, but it is worth the hunt to find this hidden masterpiece. They even have a patio to sit and eat that offers a great view of the Atlanta skyline (the rain prevented us from venturing out but next time). The food was excellent; no complaints from our table, and the drinks were on point. Overall they have great décor and service. "

  • "Great for a date night. Definitely try the beef skewer appetizer. Those are delicious. "

  • "We try to find a different place to celebrate our anniversary and my wife had been here for a business lunch. First off, I liked that the restaurant is on the third floor with some nice views of the city. The menu has lots of unique dishes we haven't found at other Thai places around town. The Kal Yang, very flavorful and just the right size. The surprise was the dessert, my wife recommended the Bangkok snow Cone - strange looking but delicious. We'll be back!"
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Tuk Tuk is located on the third floor of a building in Buckhead. The high ceilings are strung all over with vintage white lights, and the overall Asian feel makes this place both hip and romantic. The food is delicious and fresh, and our server was great too. We also saw the staff accommodating at least three large groups, one of which contained about 4 young children and another of which contained an elderly lady in a wheelchair. There was ample space between tables, and the high ceiling helped make the restaurant feel open and keep the noise level down. Will definitely be back."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We went to celebrate a birthday. The food was okay. Everything tasted a bit sweet. The disappointing part of the evening was when we were charge a $10 fee to serve the birthday cake. For the type of restaurant it was, $10 was a little too steep. I would expect it from a higher end restaurant, not a casual one. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Excellent Food, it's like we took a express trip to Thailand. Great customer service. We will be back for sure. Thanks to our server Ernest for taking the time to recommend his favorite dishes."
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "Tuk Tuk is consistently yummy, but not my favorite Thai in town. I'm not sure if that's because it's so authentic, and my tastebuds prefer Westernized dishes. That said, I've never had a bad meal here, and the vibe is always lively and fun. The patio is perfect for romantic dinners or for group events - we once had a really large patio party for my friend's birthday here, and they could not have been more accomodating. "
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "We really love this place. The food is flavorful and delicious and there's not a bad choice on the menu. Service is great and the portions are adequate. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and other foodie diners."

  • "Tuk-tuk has a small lovely patio with a view of downtown. The food was so good that i went there for lunch two days in a row this week! Pad-thai is outstanding!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Tuk tuk was very good. We started off with some cocktails which were great. The calamari was quite tasty. It was more fried than I typically like (heavy batter), but it didn't taste greasy. It was light and crunchy. My husband got the Pad Kee Ew with tofu. The suace, noodles and vegetables were great. The tofu was a little rubbery. The veggies were cooked perfectly, however. I had the chicken satay and a beef broth soup. They were both great. The satay was perfectly cooked and had great spices on it. The soup broth was great."

  • "Born and brought up in Singapore and having visited Bangkok while living in Hong Kong, I was really impressed by the quality of the food. The American Thai waiter was AWESOME and gave us good tops as to what to choose. Marinated pork skewers, chicken satay, chicken dumplings were huge appetizer hits. The deep fried red snapper with the chilli-lime sauce and mango salad was out of this world. Pad Thai Woon Sen was good. The ice shaving dessert (can't remember what they called it, we call it ice kachang in Singapore) was very authentic and a low fat alternative. Must go if you're in Atlanta! Especially if you are starved for Asian food living in a city like Charlotte...."

  • "Made reservation through opentable for early Sunday dinner. First time dining experience was A+++. Food was full of flavor and meal portions was just right for the money. Service was fast and friendly staff. Will definitely come again with a group during peak times to see if they are consistent. Adequate parking and free. My only con is that the water glasses and silverware were not very clean. Had to trade out a few times. Overall it's one to add to your foodies list."

  • "I had a dinner with a former business associate and he suggested this restaurant. The food was very well spiced without being over powering (some add heat for the sake of heat). The service was good, attentive without being intrusive. We are able to discuss several business issues over a relaxed atmosphere and could hear each other without problem. We had 2 different appetizers that were excellent. I had the Salmon which was very good. The Salmon was slightly over cooked but not dry. I would definitely recommend this for a small business dinner in town."

  • "One of my top 2 Thai restaurants in the metro-Atlanta area. Great ambiance w/ fantastic food. You're not going to find another restaurant with a better appetizer selection. I highly recommend the beef tenderloin skewers, beef jerky & calamari. The Tom Kha Kai (chicken coconut soup) is the best that I've ever had and I've eaten Thai food all over the world. A must have!!! I also love the Massaman Curry w/ chicken and the Deep-Fried Grouper. In terms of cocktails, their Black Mojito & Kra Pow are must haves. It's a great place to celebrate a special occasion. I've had my last 2 birthday dinners there and have been thoroughly satisfied."
