About Us

Inspired From The Streets of India

Tuk Tuk was founded in 2012 by the director, Rizvi Khaleque. Our Edinburgh flagship restaurant is known for its colourful interiors, serving small plates of delicious Indian street food. Tuk Tuk is inspired by the food hawkers of India, where we do with a mix of rustic roadside and railway station dishes. Millions of street food vendors make up the colour, sounds and smells of India.

They nourish the appetites of busy office workers, sweaty rickshaw-wallahs and hungry school children throughout the day. Our menu pays homage to these roadside culinary geniuses. Our food is the simple earthy, lovingly prepared food of the people and represents the tastes of India today.

We pride ourselves on being the pioneer of Indian street food culture and delivering exceptional customer service. Using fresh ingredients and authentic spices we have a selection of delicious dishes for everyone. Our philosophy is all about experiencing and sharing good food.
