Good sized restaurant with an actual tuk tuk inside! Large menu with all the standard Thai choices. Full bar. We visited on a Monday night during happy hour when there were numerous apps at half price. We had crab rangoon, chicken rolls (like a spring roll), calamari, and potstickers. All came with unique sauces. The calamari were thick rings which... More

Great food, even better service! Super fast and attentive. Not sure why this place was dead on a Saturday evening when we went, perhaps because there was no menu posted outside as other restaurants. Will definitely be back.

I've had lunch twice at Tuk Tuk, once having Pad Thai, and the second time Thai fried rice with fried chicken. Each time the cost was about $10 including tax, and the portion was very ample. Food is freshly made in the woks in the kitchen, which is open to the restaurant. I think Tuk Tuk may largely cater to... More

This restaurant has been around for awhile and always has good food. I like Thai food and have been to Thailand many times...and I know what it is supposed to taste like. Tuk Tuk does very well considering that they have to use local vegetables and cater to local tastes. The curries are very complex and can have a lot... More

This restaurant makes good Thai food. It's not a fancy place, and the food isn't gonna blow you away, but they make good thai food. This place is a good value for the dollar. They are quick, give nice sized portions, and have never screwed up an order after eating here for a decade. Their Pad Thai is solid, and... More

My favorite is the Pineapple Rice. It is loaded with shrimp, chicken, pineapple, other veggies and spices. An order is $10-11, and makes two meals for me (take-out). I ask them to hold of off on the 'hot' spice - the other spices are enough to make it very tasty. Can't comment on the rest of the food, because I'm... More

Can't say enough how friendly and courteous the staff was here - they also were prompt and extremely accomodating. This is like an open cafe with the college town feel, yet their very late hours prove they are willing to go the extra mile to welcome the theater crowd with a solid option for dining at those hours. I did... More

This is our default Thai place. The food is good. You can't complain about the service. The pineapple cod is awesome AT the restaurant. Here is why we really love it. It's affordable, reliably good, and the deliver. Every time we land from back east or abroad, we call as we leave the airport and the food comes piping hot... More
