Tuk Tuk Bistro – Thailand Cuisine in Ho Chi Minh

Tuk Tuk Bistro is one of famous thailand restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City. They are located in 17/11 Le Thanh Ton Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City. It’s recommended to make an appointment before as they are really busy at dinner time. From the outside it looks as a small fancy restaurant, but once you go in it’s a 3 storey restaurant. First floor and second floor are air-conditioned so it’s better for chill. Third floor is an open-air seating with many fans to help cooling down the temperature. I got to sit at third floor, and it was a little hot at that time.

Their menu has ‘chili’ sign next to the dish name. It shows how spicy the food is. We (me and my husband) ordered chicken green curry fried rice because it has only 1 ‘chili’, fried rice with shrimp paste and deep-fried tofu with tamarind sauce.

Their foods are good. My favourite is the tofu. It’s a homemade tofu and the sauce is really good! Fried rice with shrimp paste also delicious. It comes with pickles, dried pork sausages, omelette, lime, caramelized pork meat, mango salad, chili and crispy whitebaits. Pour the lime over fried rice before start eating.

As for chicken green curry fried rice, it’s really spicy for us! And it has only 1 chili sign on menu. I don’t think i will order a menu with 2 or more chili sign. The taste is actually really good, my husband likes it. I ate 1 spoon and that’s all lol.. too spicy for me.

After we finished eating, we just realized something. . . we didn’t order thai ice tea! How come we go to thai restaurant and didn’t try their thai tea 😦 They have red milk tea and green milk tea! I should try it next time.
