Tuk Tuk No2 for Edinburgh


Tuk Tuk Indian Street Food has opened its doors to a second Edinburgh site, on Drummond Street. Known for its lively atmosphere and playful interiors, the new restaurant will offer an authentic selection of small plates inspired by the bold and punchy flavours of popular Indian railway station and roadside dishes.

Drummond Street is the third addition to the portfolio which includes the original Edinburgh site at Tollcross and a Glasgow restaurant in Sauchiehall Street. The 90-cover BYOB restaurant also offers a 35-cover group dining space.

Owner, Rizvi Khaleque said, ‘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. 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.’

The venue was designed by Edinburgh design agency S+Co, and showcases 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.

This Tuk Tuk will also add a discretionary fee of 50p per table to all bills which goes directly to its partner charity, Scottish Love in Action (SLA) which is a charity that provides meals to vulnerable children in India. To date the restaurants collectively have raised over £26,000 which equates to 119,845 meals.
