We are a family of four, not big eaters as such. What I mean by that is that we prefer quality over quantity, and I think Tuk Tuk gets this spot on.We wandered in thinking its Thai food, being tuk tuk... however the food here I thought was outstanding really. You can tell this place takes pride in what it serves because the food is fresh, spiced perfectly we will definitely visit here again. Fully recommended. We spent 45£ and our boys left very happy!

Wandered in by chance during Airborne and Wow! Such wonderful flavours beautifully combined to make a fabulous meal. I’m gluten intolerant and the menu clearly listed a variety of options free of various allergens/vegan options etc. We were tempted by the tapas type dishes but went for a main. I had the lamb biriani, my friend the tandoori platter. Cost was very reasonable. Cleanliness good. Decor smart/modern. Will be returning More...

Visited Eastbourne for the day and have to say this is one of the best Indian's I've had in sooooooooo long. It was unbelievable, everything full of flavour and cooked to perfection. Service was really friendly and attentive without being overbearing and annoying. Will be coming back for more despite an hour and a half train journey, without fail More...

Really nice restaurant with lovely Indian food. It’s a really good concept and a bit like tapas with an Indian theme. Quality of food is excellent, very well prepared and lovely flavours. The restaurant recommend three dishes between two, and I think this is spot on. Service is very good and attentive. Probably a little more expensive that the regular Indian place, but service and quality make it worth it. I will be returning soon. More...

Food is really nice, the staff friendly and attentive & they have a good selection of gluten-free dishes for those of us who would love to munch our way through the entire menu but would suffer big time for it. If you find yourself getting a little warm because some spicy treat is maybe a tad warm, then some of the mango lassi is a super-delicious way to cool things off More...

If you are vegan and like Indian food then this place is for you. They have a vegan menu that is offered when you are seated; I’d recommend the Vegetable Kaidai! More...

All full of flavour!If you like sagaloo, there is a spinach dish near the bottom left side that is delicious.Service is great, they are happy to answer questions as the dishes are different.Enjoy More...

Superb restaurant and I can't believe it's taken us so long to visit. Comfortable, relaxed venue, well priced, and delicious food. We don't eat out often, but many restaurants we come away full but a bit overwhelmed with the sugars, salts and fats everything is covered with. Tuk Tuk, it was like eating good, home cooked food. Staff were really friendly and service was perfect. More...

After a long time of watching this restaurant. My wife, and I, finally plucked up the courage to give this place a try.  We were not disappointed.The restaurant is very clean. Tables lightly set and the chairs are comfortable. Lighting is pretty good. No problem reading the menu. The toilets are compact and exceptionally clean. This was a very pleasant surprise. An area that many an Indian inspired restaurant leaves out. The kitchen is partially open plan so you can see some of the food being prepared and, that the cleanliness extends there too.The bar area is in the corner and on show too.The menu itself is pretty clear, concise, and brief. Not a lot here to get yourself complicated with. That said. If you are of Indian or similar background. There are lots of items here that you would be familiar with. Maybe some you would even get excited about. If you are new to the concept of Indian Street food, and been tempted to give it a try. This is the place for you.It is important to understand what this restaurant is aiming to achieve. They are trying to introduce and build upon the Indian Street Food concept. This is really a variation of Tapas. You are best to select a mixture of dishes and sample pieces of them all, over conversation and drinks of your choice. Very informal. To build on the Indian street atmosphere, the artwork is Bollywood posters, and the flatware is traditional stainless steel plates and beakers.The food is good quality and, indeed tasty with good presentation. But although inspired by Indian Street Food. If you think you will be transported back to the tastes of Mumbai or Delhi. This is not going to happen. The food here is based on, and not a reproduction of traditional Street Food. It is created to a little more of a European taste. It is not fiery hot. This does not detract in any way from its quality or origin.We had a good mix from the selection. Of note, I will say the Dosa was very good, but a little expensive for what it is, and in comparison to other likewise restaurants. That said you can’t get one anywhere else in Eastbourne so it’s a cornered market.We met the owner who was very nice and showed a real interest in all the guests that came in while we were there.Our visit was better than expected, and we did enjoy the food. I’m sure we will be back in the future. More...

If you want Indian Cuisine in Eastbourne you would be foolish to walk past this restaurant.I dined with a colleague and the food and service was faultless. If you can't decide on what to have, they offer a great solution in Indian Tapas. We chose 6 different dishes, along with sides and none of the choices that we had made were a mistake, all nicely presented and as expected. I was particulary impressed with the steel cups used for the drinks, we were informed by the management that these, rather than glass are commonly used in the area of India this restaurant represents.

We loved the atmosphere. The food was delicious. You made our day with the tasty variety of dishes. We had a luncheon feast with three starters. The veggie food was excellent, washed down with delicious Cobra beer. We hope that you open a restaurant in Hastings for our friends there.

Very tasty lunch. We had 6 dishes between the two of us and struggled to get through them, however, we were brave and managed.
Everything we ordered was very tasty and it is a really nice mixed menu.
Would definitely recommend for lunch or dinner. Also really good for bigger parties and for single diners as you can order as much or as little as you want.
Wine was a really good price too.

Great food, great service. OK so whose bright idea was it to do street food in a restaurant setting? Don't care. So many times it just doesn't work.

Here it does. In every aspect. You also get treated as though you are the only customer in the place. I should point out that over 80% of the tables were occupied so it wasn't as if the staff were sitting around. And they are friendly and helpful too ensuring that you understand what you are ordering.

Will go again. And again. And again.

Ridiculously delicious food. I dont live in Eastbourne but I will come back here just for this food. I stuffed myself so bad I cant move was so tasty:)))) funny that bad reviews here are from Indian people. I witnessed Indian man sitting down and ordering one tapas? Seriously?! And being rude witn owner cause he would be happy probaly only if he fed him for free. I've ordered 3 tapas and a beer. Made me super full, cause theyre quite big for tapas and spent same as I went to Nando's or Wagamama. I'd pay double for this taste. Happy it wasn't expensive :) More...

Tried for first time yesterday, great atmosphere, loved the music in the background! Service was great, was looked after right away. They had a solid variety of indian style snacks to choose from. We tried gol gappa, 3 way chicken, channa masala, and chicken egg roll with mango lassi. We thought it was delicious and very reasonably priced. Wish I could've ordered more but I just had a footlong hot dog outside. But in all, excellent food, service, and atmosphere! More...

I'll order less next time as the total bill for the 3 of us was higher than I was expecting for a lunchtime snack, but like all tapas style places, if your eyes are bigger than your stomach you can end up spending more that you expected.
