We were in the area and looking for a place for lunch that was quick and inexpensive. This place was it. The lunch specials for $11.99 were very good and we would return. The service was great, too.

A cheap Thai place, with the usual fare. Apparently the locals use it for takeouts - saw a few come in to pick up orders. The decor is about as basic as it gets. I had a duck curry and liked it. Beer choice included...More

I had higher expectations. The food is average but if you don't feel like eating Italian food you can go and grab a bite.

Tuk Tuk Thai is located in a good spot if you're headed to Club Fugazi for Beach Blanket Babylon. The staff were pleasant, the service good, and the cuisine was good, as well.

Very casual eating. Good Pad Thai and Panang Curry. The service was very good. The serving of checking satay appetizers was a nice size.

Tasty Thai food for a very good price. I had pork with mushrooms and garlic sauce. If I had it to do over i would get vegetarian. Location is also good, right next to Little Italy and Rogue beer bar

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
