ASK THE CHEF – Tim has been the head chef since tuk-tuk's opening in 1999. If I've ever had a problem with my meal it's handled immeadiatly. The food isn't like the food at Palms or Ruen Pair, it's better. High quality ingredients, fresh vegetables and seafood, that can't be said about any of the Hollywood Blvd Thai Restaurants.
Thai Spinach? – WOW is it good. I'm a vegan and I can't get enough of this stuff. Tuk Tuk thai on Pico Blvd offer some of the tastiest veggie treat in all of Los Angeles. Take my word for it, you won't be disappointed.
Refreshing – It's great when a restaurant doen't pretend to be something it's not. LA restaurants are starting to take on this cities personality, and that's bad. Tuk-Tuk is inviting, well priced and the service is far better than many of the $50 per person eateries that are poppong up everywhere around town. The high quality ingredients and wonderful presentaion makes this a meal that's worth coming back for. Again $ again & again....
Good things to say – Have you ever noticed that we only write letters/reviews when we have something bad to say? I'm to blame for this as well, so consider my hand slapped. I like tuk-tuk on Pico. I've never had their delivery, only lunch. I love the decor, the service and mostly the Pad Thai. It's unarguably the best in town. I read about someone not liking the thai tea...that's crazy - try it!
I've been going to Thai House for the last six months and enjoying myself. A neighbor told me about tuktuk thai just down the street, I tried it. "Where have you been all my life"? The food is better, the waltresses are great, the chef even came out and talked with us. I still love the space at Thai House, but the decor at tuk tuk is cute, yellow slanted walls and a curved blue ceiling. Beer and Wine, but a great selection to choose from.
Above Average – Almost every city has a glut of bland uninspired Thai restaurants, and LA is no exception. It's nice to find a place that stands out, which Tuk Tuk does. The decor is stylish and the food above average. I had the beef waterfall, panang curry, and mekow noodles with Tofu. All dishes were well prepared and spiced appropriately. The wait staff was very friendly but the service was a little slow. They were full on a Monday night which is always a good sign.
Having grown up in SE Asia, I'm always skeptical of nouveau asian cooking. But I was pleasantly surprised by the food at tuk tuk. The curries, (esp. the duck) were outstanding - you can tell they use real coconut milk instead of the cheap watered down 'santan' they use at other more trendy thai restaurants in town. The salads were good, & the beer & wine lists add to a fine meal.
aunty Tim – I work at a local retail shop and have been enjoying this restaurant for almost five years. The owners an staff make me feel like it's my home away from home. Well, better than home actually. Aunty Tim, the Chef, always says hello and the waitresses are the sweetest people you'll ever have the pleasure to meet. Thank you for making the daily grind something to look forward to everyday.
Thai in Beverlywood – Just moved to this area. Hate it. The only thing that keeps me from taking my own life is tuk tuk on Pico. I look forward to the delivery boy, always shy, polite and puts a smile on my face after a long day in Los Angeles. Friends keep telling me this town grows on you. The Papaya Salad from tuk-tuk can grow on me anytime. That way I wouldn't have to wait 35 minutes to get it.
Satay & pad thai – tuk tuk has hands down the best chicken satay & pad thai that I've ever had. I love the decor, blue curved ceiling, yellow slanted walls. It make me feel like I'm riding in a tuk-tuk in Thailand.
