The most authentic Asian cuisine I have tasted. So flavoursome and chef can make dishes less hot if asked as everything is freshly cooked! Just love this place

Tucked away in William Street this is a gem for Ards. Hand written menus, lovely atmosphere and great service add to the whole experience. I'd popped in for lunch on Saturday and decided Tuk Tuk was going to be my Monday night treat! Satay chicken...More
