    We enjoyed our dinner at Tuk Tuk very much. Our server was prompt and helpful. We ordered the spinach wrap appetizer and were amazed at the burst of flavors. It's a must try! We also had the beef tenderloin appetizer and it was juicy with an interesting dipping sauce. The whole red snapper was our entree that we split. We cleaned that fish down to the white bones. It was large enough to split since it came with a mango salad and side of dressed cabbage slaw. We will be back!

    Best practice for dining over the weekend is set a reservation. Luckily, I was able to book one last opening for a party of three at 8p an hour before arriving. This was my first visit and immediately I knew I made the right choice simply because parking was great for a downtown location. In addition, the modern Thai decor was appealing and the scenic views were great. Out waiter Ernest was superb and most importantly the food was amazing. Portioned at the perfect amount the food was flavorful and filling. Samosas, Pad Zee U, Lad Na Talay and Kao Pad Goong Chiang were all great.

    The menu had so many voices I loved it was a major decision. We had spinach appetizer, one beef and one chicken main course, then splurged on the shaved ice. It was amazing. Great combo of flavors and color, sweet/salty, crunchy, creamy, and chewy. Ultra yummy!

    We've been dining in Atlanta on visits to our children in college here for over 12 years. Tuk Tuk Thai Food Loft had the best Thai food we've found here. The tuna salad dish was unexpected and not recommended (basically a 'tuna salad' with canned tuna. ALL other food great, we ate from each other's plates and even ordered more to try the variety. An enjoyable evening by all, good food, good service, good time!

    Tuk Tuk provides authentic Thai cuisine that explodes with flavor to your palate and senses. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience and will definitely come back time and time again. The Monday night fried chicken was AWESOME and I highly recommend it and the Kanom Jeeb (chicken and shrimp dumplings). I love great food and this place is definitely a winner!

    Had dinner with my daughter and a coworker. (i forgot our waiter's name)...so sorry, but he was really wonderful and extremely helpful with the menu, made great suggestions, explained things well. the food was, as always, fantastic. Beautiful dishes, pretty to look at and loaded with flavor. it was raining so we sat inside. it has a nice ambience for romantic dinners, the many small ceiling lights under a dark ceiling give it a night sky twist. i used to live nearby and frequented often, but having moved further away, this is just an occasional treat, however, i do keep coming back, despite the myriad of other choices available. Highly recommend it.

    I had a Thai dish that I'd only ever saw before on a menu in Thailand, so this is not simply a pad thai kind of place. The food was great. My only complaint was the service was kinda slow, and the place wasn't that full at the time, so it didn't seem like it should be slow.

    I went to Tuk Tuk Thai because I had heard many positive comments about the place and I am a fan of both Nan and Tamarind. Tuk Tuk Thai was a really hollow imitation of a good Thai restaurant. I chose to go on the heralded Monday Night in order to enjoy the house specialty. Well, it was sad. Imagine a sad little restaurant in the middle of a dying town in the middle of Georgia somewhere. Add mismatched tables, really poor service, and food that tasted as if it was prepared four or five hours before service. My recommendation is to spare yourself this ignominy. Way too many great Thai restaurants in Atlanta for this one to survive, in spite of the great location.

    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.

    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!
