We have been to Tusk several times and it has had it's up & down moments. However, after new ownership a few years ago, Tusk is certainly a go to place now. The setting is comfortable and service is brilliant. We recently met for a birthday dinner and from the time we set foot in the restaurant to leaving we... More

My husband and I came here on a Groupon deal and thought that we could have cooked a better meal at home. The tempura fish was soggy and the prawn stir fry had a very plain flavour of garlic and soy sauce. The menu did not state which dishes were gluten free and the waitress had no knowledge herself. Probably... More

We were bought a Groupon voucher for this place from a friend. We found it easy to get to in an uber and had a wonderful meal. Masa man curry is my favourite and it was delicious. The staff were friendly and provided excellent service making sure you had enough water and rice before they brought you main meal out.... More

Have been to Tusk quite a few times and would happily return. It's a nice restaurant for a low key family dinner or a date as is the perfect balance of not too fancy but not too casual either. The food is pretty tasty! Tried the drunken noodles on Saturday night and thought they were delicious. Awesome how this place... More

Tusk has been around a long time. It's still busy, which proves it's quality. Now squashed amongst the mainly Chinese diners, Tusk stands out as a really solid place to eat. The food is tasty, the service is always pleasant and it does not stretch the pocket too much. The other places around it are all formica tables, fluorescent lights... More

Have been visiting this place for quite sometime. The only reason we go there often is the food. Its one of the best Thai foods in Auckland.

The ambience was good, the tables were crowded(& close at hand) for a Tuesday evening and the food came before the plates arrived/were laid out. But the food itself was exceptional and tasty. The soft crab was exceptional, the flaming chicken looked very attractive - but the flame died before I had a chance to photograph it, the seafood platter... More

We went on a GrabOne Voucher. Lovely service and good food. It has a nice ambience too. Can be hard to find a carpark nearby on a Friday night though.

We had heard so much good about this restaurant for so long that we finally decided to give it a try. When we called to book it as already full until 8.30pm. That was a sign that it could only be good. We were not disappointed, everything was great : fine and varied menu, professional staff, and amazing food !... More
