New Thai street food restaurant set to spice up Ecclesall Road

Tuk Tuk Thai Street Food is set to bring the heat to Ecclesall Road this summer when they take over the former home of Mexican fast food chain Taco Bell.

As the name suggests, the restaurant will specialise in Thai street food favourites and, in an effort to help transport you to South East Asia, will even feature authentic Tuk Tuk’s delivered direct from Thailand.

Owner Paul Hague told Exposed: “We plan to transport you to the streets of Thailand, the aromas and tastes (some of the chaos) and the sights. All the dishes will be prepared daily on site with the focus on delivering authentic Thai street food.

“Street food is served in a very informal atmosphere and we want to bring that sense of a relaxed setting to Sheffield whilst serving high quality food and drinks.”

On the menu will be Thai staples Green, Red, Pa-Nang and Massaman curries and Paul recommends some of his favourites Jungle curry, Pad Prik Gang Dang and Kapow if you want a little extra spice.

Paul and his team have been serving Thai food for almost 10 years through Rotherham-based Thai restaurants and they now looking forward to bringing their street food concept to this latest restaurant.

“We are tremendously excited about Tuk Tuk and are working hard to get everything in place for the launch,” says Paul, “we hope we can see you all once the doors open and we can bring Bangkok to Sheffield.”

Tuk Tuk is hoping to be open in July and for updates on their progress (and the progress of their Tuk Tuk’s which are taking the slow boat from Thailand) head over to their Facebook page.
