Amazing food, friendly and helpful staff. We took our meal to the Cooper Community Center, just down the road in Volcano to enjoy it. They have picnic tables (and a nice farmer's market on the weekend) We didn't want to wait.

The food here was delicious, and the staff were friendly and accommodating. We wanted to check this place out, and the dishes were flavorful and the portions were big. It was the perfect lunch to fuel us up for a big hike at the national...park. Strongly recommend for a meal on the go.More

Sadly, the overall food quality at restaurants on the big island is generally poor - so the bar is set pretty low. However, Tuk Tuk was excellent by any measure. Could have been spicier. I had green curry with chicken. Good size portion. Only complaint...is that I wish it had more chicken and less eggplant. Flavors are great. Spring rolls very good. Little pricey for a food truck.More

Stopped for dinner after making it to Volcanoes National Park. Line to place order (usually a great sign)! Ordering was limited since many items or ingredients were sold out. Ordered summer rolls with shrimp. Fresh and delightful even though no basil was found. Entrees included...Masaman curry with jasmine rice, Penang curry with brown rice and Thai basilMore

We were introduced to Tuk Tuk through vloggers, Adventures with A + K. Amazing Thai food. It's past the entrance to the park on a side street. Ask questions. They are happy to help you make a choice. You won't get it wrong because it's...all great.More

I opted for the pumpkin (kabocha squash) curry over brown rice. Solid and tasty choice. The 2 others in my family had Pad Thai and were pleased as well. The wait time was short and the portions are very large so plan accordingly. Definitely a...good place to stop whilst visiting Volcano National Park.More

We've eaten Thai all over the world and this was some of the best we've ever had. Very fresh and excellent flavors. Just get there early because it's so good that they sell out.

Was looking forward to this stop since reading about it in some guidebooks. It did NOT disappoint. Pretty pricey, but the food was delicious and abundant! Super friendly service. They can sell out of things so get there early. We arrived at 1pm and they...were already low on fried rice.More

We ordered pad thai, pad see ew, banana lumpia and thai ice tea from this darling food truck with the friendliest guy taking orders. The wait was short and the meal was definitely on the pricy side but we got a ton of food- easily...enough for two meals each. Warning- these guys are not messing around with spice, we're usually up for a 3 star meal and ordered 4 out of 10 and it was blistering, volcano hot! The pad thai was truly awful tasting, the pad see ew was OK and the banana lumpia was delicious. Next time I'll try the curries and maybe have better luck. I really wanted it to be better.More

If you like to wait over 1.5 hours for mediocre food, this is for you. Mediocre, cold food. No service, long waits. Terrible

Perfect place to stop for lunch when visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park! The staff is very friendly and helpful. We got the summer rolls, pad thai, and cashew shrimp, all were delicious and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend!

We arrived around 2:30 and placed our order, were told it would be around 40 minutes...an hour later they let us know they could only make half our food because they were out of noodles AND rice. There weren't any other items we wanted to...order that didn't involve these basic Thai food items so we ended up leaving and finding another Thai truck further down the road. If you go here place an order ahead of time as that seems to be the secret to getting food before they run out.More

The pumpkin curry and pad tai were truly outstanding. Hot and fresh. Check their hours and go early, as they run out of items as the day goes on. We would've gone back the next night but it was closed that day. Highly recommend!

I believe they do but not sure how it is prepared given that some people don't like cross contamination. I would look at there menu as I know they did have vegetarian dishes.
