Sauchiehall Street restaurant specialising in street food, tandoor and curry dishes from across the Indian subcontinent in a casual setting.
Nestled amid the hustle and bustle of Sauchiehall Street, casual and colourful Tuk Tuk’s mission statement is to introduce street food from the length and breadth of the wider Indian subcontinent to Glasgow’s diners. The menu draws from 'roadside plates', 'street curries' and 'tandoor kitchen' to serve dishes you don’t often see. They succeed in that pursuit. The roadside plates in particular offer a departure: the cool and crisp puri yoghurt bombs live up to their billing as a local favourite, and the mild kick of the Bengali fish cakes is complemented by fresh mint sauce and crunchy slaw. The street curries offer familiar dishes like butter chicken and dhal makhani, while the lamb kolhapuri – tender meat in vibrant gravy – and well-marinaded saag paneer are both winners. There’s no booze served (you can bring your own for a very reasonable 50p recycling tax) but their own non-alcoholic refreshments, the lassi or Mint Mambo, are sensationally refreshing – sticking to just the one is near impossible.
