The waitress tried to charge us 2 taxes on our bill. We thought one was a tip and so we tip her another $5.00. She ran out of the restuarant and asked us what was wrong with the service. Unbelievably RUDE. Food was that good.. Will never go back

Our service was great and the waiter was adorable. Ambiance was romantic and definitely recommended. For the music,,,I would recommend jazz or house and the people were cool. Portions were good.

Worst service ever
I used to go years ago and I just returned from this place. Sunday night, hardly anyone in the place. 8pm and the waitress never came over until we complained twenty minutes later. No attention. Dirty cups and zero concern about anything. The wait staff acting like they were avoiding the customers instead of engaging. The food was ok but I'll only order take out. And maybe I won't do that because this place needs a wake up call. They had the nerve to put a suggestion for the tip. Please! Worst service ever. Never going back. Davyjc

The poor service matches the quality of food. The beef is dry and tasteless. They close very early and are very rude about it - they turn on the light and give you the check and generally rush you.

I wasn't gonna write a review but after reading the negative reviews I felt I had to speak up. I'm Thai. I love Pad Thai. I've realized that Pad Thai is hard to make consistent and I realized that Thai people don't really eat Pad Thai or at least the kind that is served in the restaurants. It's an americanized dish akin to Orange Chicken. With that said I wouldn't judge the restaurant on a dish they probably put on the menu as a courtesy. Nor would I judge a restaurant based on a take-out experience.
Now what I love about Tuk Tuk is that it differs from Thai Town cuisine in that it strives to present Thai food in a health conscious fashion without sacrificing the spice and the taste. Being a Thai person with a western style, it suited me perfectly. No stomach pains and I still gets me rice, which is a great hearty purple rice they serve. Oh and their eggrolls are awesome. Big and delicately fried.

A friend of mine, whom is a really picky eater recommended it to me. Well I was really impressed, b/c I'm a sourthern girl from N.O. So everything I let on my pallet has to be well seasoned and a hearty meal. Well I had this wontong soup with some ot the eggrolls and a small side of curry soup. I was floored when finished. I could'nt eat it all and wish they had a location in Atlanta. It had been 10 years since I had been to L.A., so this was a trip I refused to let go bad. I expected everything to go perfect and it started w/TukTuk. The service is really attentive and the waiters and waitresses were really cute, the aroma makes you wanna eat everything, my Wonton Soup was perfect. I will be back

I skimmed some of the other reviews and everyone keeps talking up the way the place looks. We went for the first time the other night and it was just okay. Only on the west side of LA would a place like this get 5 stars and just because of the way it looks.

Went with a friend based on reviews at this website. Was satisfied with almost everything. Very friendly, young and pretty female waitresses ushered us to our table. It was a candle-lit. Very good ambience with tiny thai autorikshaw models and pictures on the walls.
We ordered a sea food (trout) and a from the wok dish with red rice. I can vouch for its taste. Pricing was very reasonable. Ended up spending around 30$ between 2 of us.
Parking available on a side-street, but could be difficult at busier times of the day.

The best curry I have ever tested might possibly be from Tuk Tuk. Very flavorful!! The vegetable spring rolls and pad thai are good as well. The inside of the restaurant is sooo cute and is a great date place- dark and romantic :)
Very reasonable lunch specials here also.

My boyfriend and I ordered Tuk Tuk take out & were very disappointed. Tuk Tuk had come highly recommended, so we were very excited to try it. My boyfriend always orders the Pad Thai when trying out new restaurants as a gauge of how good the restaurant is & he couldn't eat it. The Pad Thai had strong brackish taste & did not even resemble Pad Thai. He had even requested no fish sauce. My dish was very greasy and bland eventhough i requested medium spicy. We will never order or visit Tuk Tuk again. There are too many other great Thai food restaurants in the city.

After reading all the other reviews I was a little confused. I mean such a disparity! I say manage your expectations. Tuk Tuk is a casual, neighborhood thai food restaurant that has a delicious menu. Love the Papaya salad. And the service can be erratic. But such is dining in Los Angeles. Well worth it for a casual night out or for ordering in.
Called late, 10:15. We needed food for a poker party, 12 guys. The waitress was a little hesitant, she needed to ask the kitchen. Came back, took the order...food delivered at 10:45 - GREAT JOB. I'll call earlier next time.
Love the decor, food presentation and service. Met the Chef, very unassuming but confident. Pad Thai was wonderful, garlic tofu was a bit on the garlicky side but great. The spring rolls were unbelieveable. Will revisit often.

The bamboo bar, arched ceilings, wood floors and tasty color palate blend nicely with the wonerful food and creative drink menu. The staff is friendly, sometimes rushed, it is very busy on the weekends. For a more intimate experience try an off day (Tuesday or Wednesday). On street parking is sufficient on weekdays. For a good discount use your KCRW (10%) card or Rewards Retwork CC (10%). Crying Tiger Beef, Pear Salad & a Singha is my fav meal. Happy dining.

I lived in Thailand for nearly a year and can tell you there is nothing authentic about this Thail food, nor is it fresh, and the ingredients are questionable.
When I ordered take-out, I got a price over the phone but was then charged more than I was quoted.
When I questioned it, they said they'd made a mistake on the phone. I thought it was shady.
A male friend of mine goes here a lot and when I ate there with him the food wasn't bad.
But when I went in alone to have a quick lunch, it was the WORST green curry I've ever had: runny, tasteless and the chicken was rubbery.
I think this place is still in business all these years ONLY because it's the ONLY Thai place in the area.

I know, PAD THAI is such a farang dish to order. I love it, can't help it...I've tried many times to order other things but I'm always left wishing I would have gotten the PAD THAI. Tuk-Tuk does a mean Pad Thai. One of the best I've ever had.
