Tuk Tuk serves authentic Indian food of the highest quality. The portions, including the starters were large and absolutely delicious. We would recommend this restaurant to anybody visiting Valletta.

Delicious food. Lots of choices and the waiter gives you a choice of mild, medium or hot on all dishes. Very popular place. Service was fine. Only down side was the loud mouth cockney sat at in the corner.

There weren't any children when we were there, perhaps because it was a weekday.
