Thai street food comes to Christchurch.

If you’ve never had Thai street food before, let Tuk Tuk take you on a culinary journey through the vibrant streets of Bangkok. We serve up the sights, smells and flavours of street-style cooking from the heart of Riccarton!

Tuk Tuk’s signature dishes include Yum Tuk Tuk Pork with Roasted Peanuts and Lemongrass; Kaeng Som Curry with Thai Prawn Omelette; and Larb Kai Spicy Chicken Salad.

The Side Walk menu offers a mouth-watering selection of tasting dishes straight off the bustling streets of Bangkok. You’ll find larger meals on the Street Hot Wok menu. Vegetarian favourites include the Hot Wok Smoky Cabbage and Wok Fried Bean Sprouts with Tofu. As you’d expect their dessert menu is full of rich, coconut-flavoured delights.

If you’re looking for toned back Western-style Thai food, this is not the place for you! Instead, be prepared to taste the atmosphere and flavours of real Thai street food.

The food was delicious as always and the spare ribs were to die for...they should be on the menu permanently not just as a special

First time we have been here. Was not impressed with the food at all. Meat was dry and tough. Our son ordered Chicken Satay dish, when it arrived it was full of vegetables with barely any chicken. Would not return.

Staff very friendly n welcoming. Food comes quite fast n it was delicious. Our dessert was ice cream with sago pudding which was nice on it own. We would have preferred however to have larger portion of sago pudding without the ice cream as that is more Thai n something which we love.

We ordered the chicken pad thai, eye of the tiger and the green curry. All were delicious! The portions are generous and the food is flavoursome and spicy! The staff were helpful and attentive and our meals came out very quickly. We enjoyed dining at Tuk Tuk and will definitely come back again to try the rest of the menu!

We had yet again another great meal at tuk tuk Thai. It was my 30th birthday and we had a super easy decision in choosing to go to tuk tuk Thai, as we have always loved the food there and new it was a safe decision for a delicious meal!
The service was just the right balance of helpful and ready to answer our questions and give helpful advice as well as giving us our space to enjoy the food and conversation.
It was such an enjoyable night for us, our first night out together since having our twins a few months ago.
Thanks yet again!

Great going for a meal at 5pm...there is no-one there and we had fast service and quiet spaces - except for our group. The food was delicious and the service was great. Recommended. I have been at Tuk Tuk during a busy time and is a great place for food.

Wow! What a great experience! We loved the food! The pork skewers recommended by the waitstaff were the highlight of the evening! Also enjoyed the Chef's Special of Spicy Chicken with kaffir lime leaves, etc. (will try the beef next time!) and the Green Curry with Chicken. This is authentic Thai food - perfectly balanced between sweet and spicy. Excellent service!

Food sizes were great seviced was very rushed we were asked if we were ready to order after 10min of sitting down. We ordered a few things but the nicest was the noodles and bbq pork off the kids menu, the pork skewers were very raw and we took them back they didnt make us pay for those. Just double check your food before you eat as everything is very rushed hence the under cooked pork. Over all food wasnt to bad thank you

Great food and pleasant surroundings. I trusted my fellow diners to select the food and wasn't disappointed. I don't usually like Sweet and Sour but the Wontons were really nice. The chicken in the cashew and mushroom dish was delicious as well. The waitresses were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
