The menu struck me as more Pan-Asian than strictly Thai. Service was fine, the atmosphere was lively and the prices weren't bad. I wasn't wowed by anything in particular, but it was a nice enough place to eat. Better Thai places out there in less trendy neighborhoods, though.

Having a terrific Thai restaurant in my neighborhood is wonderful. Such an excellent, attentive staff heightens the experience. All the ample and tasty dishes are beautifully prepared and presented.

Friendly and Efficient Service. Do not stay in Long Island City and not visit this venue. Great menu, helpful service and just a pleasant place to eat in New York!

Food is very good. Not fancy, affordable, wonderful Thai! This is the best restaurant in LIC. If it says spicy...it is indeed spicy.

My friend lives in LIC and when I visit her (and her family) we always indulge our culinary senses with dishes from Tuk Tuk. My very favorite dish is Tom Ka Gai (coconut milk soup with chicken), which is so authentic I felt as if I was back in Thailand. It is hands down the best Thai I have eaten... More

I love so many places here in LIC, but Tuk Tuk is my favorite! The flavors are so fresh, and the food is never oily and never seems to be sitting around waiting for a home...The staff is lovely and the prices can't be beat, and note, when a dish is marked as spicy, it is actually spicy.

As one of few restaurants on the easily accessible Vernon Blvd. Tuk Tuk enjoys excellent location and a fairly decent menu. With the dearth of dining choices in the area (most places are catered to the brunch crowd) Tuk Tuk has a strong hold on the South-East Asian cuisine lovers of Long Island City. But this stronghold is attributed more... More

... but you can take a subway, or walk, there! Long Island City is close enough to Manhattan to pop on the 7 train, just one stop into Queens, and satisfy your Siamese cravings. I happen to be a duck fanatic, so I'm usually inclined to "test" the menu with a duck dish. I deferred from the more usual Tamarind... More

Whenever I want to fulfill my craving for Thai food I go to Tuk Tuk in LIC. I live about 10 minutes so I go out of my toe at here. My favorite dishes are the golden purse, pad Thai noodles, beef massaman curry, chicken skewers, and wonton lover soup. Their dishes are fragrant and tasty. Prices of their dishes... More

Visited this with my wife, granddaughter and her fiancée since they had eaten there before and it was conveniently located to their new apartment in LI City. Service was good and food was typical Thai with the Pad Thai and lots of vegetable and meat with vegetable dishes in sauces from mild to very hot and spicy. We had several... More
