Tuk Tuk Restaurant

I had a delicious lunch last week at Tuk Tuk Restaurant in Natomas, which serves Thai cuisine in a serene and elegant setting.

As with many Thai restaurants, the menu at Tuk Tuk includes a section that allows you to add a choice of meat to any of the numerous listed dishes, and the "meat" choices include tofu. On the Tuk Tuk menu, this is the wok section, and it includes a nice variety of stir fry options. Many of these options include curry, so I asked whether there is fish sauce in the curry at Tuk Tuk, and the server told me that they do not put fish sauce in their curries.

That was great news, so I decided to order the Prik King, which consists of string beans, roasted red curry paste, ground peanuts, and the tofu that I added as my "meat" choice. It was served with jasmine rice, but brown rice is also available for an extra 50 cents. I asked for a spice level of mild to medium, which was a little more mild than medium, but very flavorful. The lunch portion was a little on the large side, but I was up to the task and finished every bite of this tasty dish.

Tuk Tuk is located at 4630 Natomas Boulevard, #150. Their phone number is 916-575-7957, and their website address is They are open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.


When I began this blog, I didn't know how long it would take before I ran out of restaurants to write about. I'm afraid I'm starting to reach that point. I still have a few local restaurants that I want to visit and blog about, and I'm sure I'll find out about others. But beginning this week, I am going to move to a once-a-week posting schedule. New blog articles will appear every Monday, which will give me an opportunity to share information with you about all the really great vegan restaurant meals I hope to have every weekend. If you have suggestions for restaurants that I haven't blogged about yet, please let me know.

Hi Pam,

I'm going to send you an email with some restaurants I haven't seen on your site yet. Also, I find new veg-friendly restaurants two ways: & On yelp, enter "vegan" as a search term within the desired city. This can be a time consuming process but I have found some great info this way.

Hi! I recommend checking out Baagan in Roseville (all vegan).
