Sauchiehall street’s Tuk Tuk looks to transport not just the dishes themselves but a portion of culture right off the streets of India. Walking through the door, you’re hit immediately will a wall of colour and a bright smile from a server ready to sit you down and let you know how things are done. The crux of it is a tapas-style selection of sharing plates to spread across the table, allowing for a sampling of more of the menu's varied range of curries and street-style meat dishes (although the servings are plentiful, the modest prices make the suggestion of three per person sound advice), and encouraging a casual, comunal kind of eating. Tuk Tuk isn’t set up for the quiet civility of an upmarket restaurant but instead demands the air be filled with the sound of lively chatter and passing plates.
It’s a BYOB situation on the alcohol front but those who do so at the expense of the restaurant’s own drinks menu will be sorely missing out – a glass of fruity lassi or a neon-green Mint Mambo make the perfect cooling agent to sit alongside a hot curry.
