Tuk Tuk is a go-to for Thai but this is the first time the service has been as bad as it was - particularly waiting for a drink - which we received our second one after we finished eating. Nice waitress, apologetic, and the food was great as always, but it really dampened what was supposed to be our Valentines dinner because we couldn't get a reservation on Valentines day. I'll still recommend Tuk Tuk - of the many times I've been there, this is the first I've had an issue, but I'm hoping they see this and decide to take heed that if it continues on another trip it could well damage my view of them as my go-to Thai place.

This was our first visit to Tuk Tuk and we loved it. The service was excellent and we were very pleased with all of the Covid precautions they are taking. We started with the Tuk Tuk Martini and the Boston Mule and an order of calamari, I could see these martinis sneaking up on you! The mule was a little too sweet but the calamari was light and crispy, the dipping sauce was very tasty. For our entrees we had Pad Thai (chicken) and Sautéed minced pork with Thai sweet basil and garlic, topped with a fried egg served with jasmine rice. There was not a morsel of food left on our plates! The pad Thai you get at your local restaurant bears no resemblance to the fresh, authentic dish served at Tuk Tuk. We are ruined for take-out anymore. We can’t wait to go back.

CAN I PUT LOWER THAN A ONE.

I AM LIVID. WORST RESTAURANT EXPERIENCE IVE EVER HAD!

We got a reservation at Tuk Tuk for 9:15pm on Valentine's Day a week before Valentine's Day. We were so excited to go eat there because the menu looked awesome.
The day of Valentine's Day, I found out that I had been exposed to someone that may have covid. So we called the restaurant in the afternoon and told them the situation. We tried to explain that we were NOT comfortable for ourselves and the others in the restaurant.
They said because we reserved we would have to pay a $40 fee for the cancellation. We tried to explain that $40 was part of our budget for dinner. We asked if we could just most the reservation to sometime next week so we could get tested. The response was are you showing up today or paying $40.

We asked and tried to have Simon (the manager) understand the situation but I have never talked to anyone in any business with such a rude and demeaning attitude. Frustrated, we asked if instead of the reservation, we could just place a to-go order on the phone and pick it up. Rudely we were denied that option too. We'd literally be buying the same amount of food.

So we came all the way to the restaurant with double masks on the entire time. Our plan was to explain the situation to the waiter and just have them make a quick to-go order there.

We got there at exactly 9:15. We wait and wait. But no waiter. Finally we see a waiter at 9:38. 23 mins from when we got seated.

She says the restaurant is closing in 20 minutes and the kitchen is closing in 5 mins. We ask her if we can place a to go order and she immediately says of course, so no idea why that option was initially shut down. We finally get the food at 10 when they're closing. Horrible experience.

Also, the restaurant was practically empty the whole time. Why can't you cancel the reservation initially. Are you serious?

This is ridiculous.
EXTREMELY RUDE MANAGER - SIMON.
Why have reservations at 9:15 when you're

First time at Tuk Tuk. Really nice atmosphere. Food was good, though nothing special. My wife, who is admittedly particular about the leanness of beef, was dismayed at the fat in her beef and had to remove a few unsavory chunks of fat from her mouth. Both the fried shrimp and the curry shrimp (which was submerged in a bowl of panang curry sauce) still had the shells on the tails) which necessitated either deconstructing the breading to remove the shell or fishing the shrimp out of the sauce bowl to remove the tail shells. Portions were reasonable for the prices. The server was extremely sweet, but extraordinarily slow. We waited 30 minutes for our appetizer and more than an hour for our entrée. A nice experience overall but not nice enough to incentivize a return visit.

I brought my husband here for a early dinner date and it was great. We had a reservation for 5pm right when they opened back up for the dinner crowd.

The space itself was relaxing and artsy. We went up to the 3rd floor where the restaurant was located and waited to have our temperature checked. The high ceilings and open space were beautiful. We got sat right by the window and had a great view of the city. 😏

We started off with the calamari ($9) for an appetizer. The calamari was absolutely DELICIOUS!!!! Do you hear me!? The crunch was just enough and mango sauce I dipped it in made it even better. 😋 My Thai tea ($4) was sweet and creamy just like I like.

For my entree I ordered the 1/2 chicken and sticky rice ($18). The grilled chicken was cooked to perfection. It was so juicy and flavorful, I would definitely recommend this dish to anyone with tastebuds because it was that amazing. My husband had the Penang curry with jasmine rice ($16). He said his meal was banging too he just wish the portion was a little bigger.

Overall this place is amazing. Great priced items and the ambiance is so relaxing and chill. And did I mention the food?! Amazing....I can’t wait to go back and try out some more dishes.

I have passed by Tuk Tuk hundreds of times during my runs and on my way to and from work and other places. I’ve always been interested in going but found the perfect opportunity recently. The food was delicious. I am especially grateful of the safety measures that they have in place. The server was extremely helpful in navigating the menu and picking a selection that would not aggravate my allergies. I will definitely go back!

Overall, food is always good and was good this time. However, the service was terribly slow. Not only that, but instead of our waiter checking in, he only dropped in to apologize with a free appetizer for the slow service. I would have just rather have had more consistent follow up with the waiter before a resolution was provided.
