Stopped for a family dinner on a Friday evening. No problem getting a table. The restaurant is attractively decorated. Had two delicious appetizers, Steamed Delight (dumplings) and another with some sort of fried mushroom dumplings in tofu skin, then fried. Wonderful dipping sauces. My daughter had pad Thai with shrimp and chicken. My wife had seafood pad Thai. She loved... More

My husband and I have been to several thai restaurants over the years, and this is definitely a great one. We had the chiang May noodles (I think that's the name) with red curry sauce, delicious! Slightly spicy but so much flavor and a good portion. The chicken satay with peanut sauce is fresh and the Thai iced teas are... More

Very reasonably priced, good quality food. Nothing spectacular but its always good and reliable. Service is good, ambience is good. Very above average type of place. Nothing spectacular, nothing terrible.

Ok Thai food. I say "OK" because I judge a Thai restauarant by their pad thai and their Red Curry. Overall, I found all the curry dishes served here to be too watery, as if watered down. And their Pad Thai seems to also be thin on sauce too. I live in Andover, but prefer to drive to Lowell or... More

Hands down the best thai food I have ever had. I sometimes go out of my way to pick it up when we are in the mood for Thai and don't want to settle for closer restaurants. Get the duck panang - you'll thank me!

I have hardly not liked any thai place - Thai Sweet Basil is so close to my place and it is next my gym, but still did not make the cut :) I still love Tuk Tuk Thai inTewksbury! Dishes were either fairly bland or too sweet for my taste - but I have eaten here only once and may... More

Standard Thai dishes, nothing special, reasonable value. Did pick-up. There's a new Thai restaurant downtown, which will create competition for this one.

I like getting take out here. The food is delicious and I always go back. Many different choices and staff is friendly. Their pad thai is delicious and can be ordered many ways. My favorite is shrimp.

This was our first visit in spite of living in the area for years. Nice quiet atmosphere, pleasant and quick service, spotlessly clean with excellent food. We will be coming back here often.

Love this place - very unassuming front and location, but inside they make some truly delicious stuff. Some of the first Thai food I ever had was here, and it's definitely somewhere I try to go when I'm in the area. Curries are great.
