This was our second visit to Tuk Tuk. Our fried shrimp appetizers were great. When I was nearly finished with my beef panang curry entrée, I found a 3" piece of what was apparently inedible connective tissue. It was like trying to chew a thick rubber band. The server returned the plate to the kitchen and they quickly replaced my curry with more beef than had been in the original dish. We appreciated the prompt attention to making it right. I would suggest that the cooks be more mindful of fat and tendon in the beef though. We had a similar encounter during our first visit.

Felt rushed and some of the staff rude. Lights went up and music off immediately at 10:00 pm even when we were signing the bill, clearly getting ready to leave. I understand if we were there much longer. Beautiful ambiance, wanted to get a picture and bartender (or guy closing up behind the bar) dismissed us saying he was busy and called another staffer over who kindly took the roughly one minute to make our experience inviting.

We've been dining at Tuk Tuk for 8+ years and have never been disappointed. Staff is always friendly and attentive and food quality is outstanding. Highly recommend the appetizers... Samosa, Chicken and Beef Skewers & Beef Jerky. Also love the Kra Pow Moo and Prik King. Simon (the manager) is awesome. We no monger live in Atlanta but make sure to stop for dinner EVERY time we visit.

Our dinner was quite good. Our server was sweet and kind and we enjoyed the Thai flavors in the cuisine. The laarb is good - just probably should have ordered it to share as opposed to having it as my dinner. Green curry is OUTSTANDING. Also, don't miss Roti and Chicken Liver. Both very good.

We love Tuk Tuk Thai Food Loft. It’s our favorite special-occasion dining destination. The food and service and ambiance are top notch, always.

Our recent visit was our “between birthdays” celebration (mine is Mar. 1st, my wife’s is Mar. 9th) and although we didn’t mention this to our server Sam, he brought us a birthday cheesecake with candles and a special message. Later, either the manager or co-owner (not sure) stopped by with more special gifts for each of us. This small attention to detail is one of the many things we love about this place.

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.
