Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have been eating at TUK TUK since they first opened doors in Newtownards and I have never been disappointed. The food is exquisite, the service is first class and they're all so friendly. On the one occasion that I had to cancel, very recently,...they very generously refunded my deposit, when I wasn't expecting it back because I had given them 24 hours notice and they were able to rebook the table...Thanks TUK TUK.More

Oh dear, this is the first time I am compelled to write a less than brilliant review of TukTuk. Standard seems to have dropped slightly for the lunch menu, and the quality of the massaman curry in particular. There were two of us who ordered...massamans and for some reason there was hardly any vegetable in the massaman curries! Service was good as usual, but I was unfortunately able to notice this negative decline in the quality of the massaman, as I have been ordering it for several years at TukTuk so I know how it is normally served with lots of glowingly fresh vegetable in the sauce, not just mostly chicken as on this occasion....note to owners to watch the consistency of food quality and maintaining your normally high standards!More

Got a takeaway and it was just as good as eating in the restaurant which was unreal. Definitely the best restaurant in NI without a doubt - so fresh and tasty. Love it so much!! And very reasonably priced for the quality.

In Ireland visiting relatives and had the pleasure of a family get together at Tuk Tuk. First thing to mention is you can bring your own alchol! this is a dangerous thing in Ireland! This makes the restuarant more afordable instead of getting charged 18...to 20 pounds for a bottle of 2 pound Pino Grigo you can bring your own so it makes the place very affordable. The service was outstanding. The ambiance great. The food a bit of asian fusion, that being said it was outstanding. Usually I would sample all dishes served but being a family reunion after 40 years apart and a lot of chin wagging I overlooked the sampling. What I saw on the plates all looked good and everyone said their meal was oustanding. I had my favorite Thai Basil Chicken which was on par with the flavor of my many meals in Thailand. I would recomend this place without a doubt!More

The food in this place is second to none. Since it opened it has become our number one place to get a takeout from as it is healthy food and super tasty. Unfortunately (probably as a result of the increase in food costs) it has...become nearly unaffordable. I got a mixed meat Thai red curry with jasmine rice for takeaway the other day and it cost £18! Just for a single portion. Sadly that may be the last Tuk Tuk for us in a while.More

The food here is extremely delicious. Very authentic Thai food, from our experience. Didn't try the Vietnamese/Malaysian food this time. Having travelled a lot in South East Asia, the food here, took me back to my travels. Good spice where necessary. The service was excellent...and the prices weren't too bad. (Not like Asia prices unfortunately) Will definitely eat here again, or recommend to anyone.More

Visited here yesterday for lunch. We have been 3 times in total and Tuk tuk always is outstanding, I had the glazed chicken and my partner the chilli beef. Really delicious and my partner’s sweet potato fries with salt n chilli were amazing. Vietnamese coffee...is also the ultimate way to end the meal. Other than the fantastic food the one thing I want to highlight is the amazing service. The staff are so attentive and welcoming and their passion for the food is great! I’ve seen they have a private dining area too which I hope to book for some friends and family occasions soon! XxMore
