Tuk Tuk is a new Indian restaurant in Tollcross, which has opened across from the Kings Theatre. Tuk Tuk specialises in Indian street food – the type of food sold by vendors and at railway stations all over India. Dishes are small and the restaurant recommends 3-4 dishes each.
In fact, this was a mistake. The dishes are small but not that small and we found that we had too much. We ordered lamb kebabs, Bengali fish cakes, ginger chicken, butter chicken, minced lamb with peas, baby aubergine and potato and okra cooked in yoghurt.
I thought that all of the dishes were pretty good but the Bengali fish cakes, the ginger chicken and the okra in yoghurt were outstanding.
Excellent service and a very lively atmosphere – minimalist decor, no flock wallpaper here, and cheerful Indian pop music. The only think we didn’t like was the salty lassi, something I normally love. It really was far too salty. BYOB – with no corkage charges. We were about £35 for 7 dishes, lassi and nan bread. We will definitely be back.
