Good food but overpriced for dine in. About $5 a dish overpriced would be my guess. Decor and dining experience does not warrant the extra price on top of take away. I suggest take away only.

Don’t go for the experience. Sticky floors, very sticky menus (yuck ) stuck doors, dark isolated location. BUT do go for the food! It is everything Thai should be. Fresh, aromatic, colourful and delicious! Every dish we ordered was a winner.

We were dine in and every play was entree except 5$ more. Noodles were good but not special, there are other good restaurants in Townsville

Each time we’ve eaten here it’s been a hit, not one miss so far! A small family run business big on flavour and as I’m FIFO, it’s proximity to the airport is brilliant. Great food that continues to impress!!

Amazing food but extremely expensive wuth small containers they call "large" Lunch deals seem better than dinner. Eg: $7.90 for 4 spring rolls !😐

We moved to Townsville six months ago and hadn't found a decent Thai restaurant until we tried Tuk Tuk last week. We had driven past many times, but don't let the appearance fool you. We've been twice now and the food has been amazing. My...More
