Ugh, another throw-away dish from Tuk Tuk. The beef quality was bad and the sauce was plain and boring. There was plenty to go around though!

Spicy curry with green chilies, coconut milk, bamboo shoots, Thai aubergines and lime leaves. Set Menu A £11.80 per person
Tuk Tuk Noodle Bar, London ENGLAND

Yuck, this green curry was gross! It had a thick, gloppy consistency and was utterly unappetizing. There was also an odd bitter taste that I couldn’t figure out. Definitely one of the worst Thai curries I’ve tasted.

Stir fry vegetables - Tuk Tuk Noodle Bar
Fried tofu, mushroom, green bean, carrot, peas, bamboo shoot, baby corn, broccoli. Set Menu A £11.80 per person
Tuk Tuk Noodle Bar, London ENGLAND

This was a pretty boring and pedestrian dish. The sauce was on the thick side and it was bland. I am glad that they included several kinds of fresh vegetables though, and the fried tofu was a welcomed addition.

Mixed appetizer platter – Tuk Tuk Noodle Bar

Mixed appetizer platter - Tuk Tuk Noodle Bar
Thai fish cake, calamari, chicken satay, salt and pepper spare ribs, spring rolls and prawn crackers. Set Menu A £11.80 per person
Tuk Tuk Noodle Bar, London ENGLAND

Oh lord, this plate was large! And unfortunately, everything on it was overcooked, dry, rubbery and disgusting. The only thing that was actually ok even when it was over-fried was the prawn chips. They still had a great crunch and good flavor. We kind of just picked through everything else, took a small bite and that was enough. That was probably for the better because this was just WAY too much fried items for two people especially since there was plenty more food yet to arrive. It made me sad to look at the large pile of uneaten food on this plate though. I guess that’s why the set menu was so affordable – they sacrificed quality for quantity.

Wow, this set menu was a great deal! Unfortunately, the food was horrible. This soup was probably the highlight of the meal. Everything else that follow was poorly prepared and odd tasting. Hmm, I would say that maybe I’m just used to American Thai food but I’ve spent a month and a half traveling through Thailand so I have a decent idea of what authentic Thai food should taste like. And this wasn’t even close! 😦
