Tuk Tuk Indian Street Food has taken its total number of restaurants up to three with a launch in Edinburgh’s Old Town.

The Drummond Street site joins existing locations in Edinburgh’s Tollcross and Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street.

The BYOB brand is known for its lively atmosphere and playful interiors, offering an ‘authentic’ selection of small plates inspired by the ‘bold and punchy flavours’ of Indian railway station and roadside dishes.

With a focus on vegetarian and vegan dishes across the menu, hero dishes include; bun samosa, saag tofu and beetroot bhajis alongside the signature wallah staff curry, chicken lollipops and puri yoghurt bombs.

The new Edinburgh site has 90 covers including a 35-cover group dining space. 

Working closely with award-winning Edinburgh design agency S+Co, the space has been configured to create a sociable dining room full of personality with the brand’s bright and bold oranges and greens.

Recycled materials are at the heart of the restaurant; off-cut British timber waste has been used to create the tabletops and the statement bar has been designed using Kenoteq’s K-Briq made up of over 90% recycled construction and demolition waste and recycled pigments. 

The signature Tuk Tuk orange is a focus on the biggest of three hand-painted murals across the walls. Bollywood film stars are cut out across the venue with a neon sign designed by Solas Neon in the window to welcome diners.

"I’m so proud to be opening a third Tuk Tuk. The last few years have been a rollercoaster in the hospitality industry, so this feels like a particularly special achievement," says owner Rizvi Khaleque. "We’re excited to open our doors for customers to enjoy our authentic menu filled with flavour and spice and soak up the lively atmosphere."
