Intimate little restaurant close to main shopping street. Don't be put off by all the building work further down street at the moment. You don 't see it once inside. The staff are great, polite, attentive and really personable people. Great communication. Replied to email request on day they were shut. Please note *cash only* but you don't need much!... More

My wife and I went here on the off-chance......It was packed, but luckily 2 unreserved@ seats. Most other diners clearly returnees......Really nice friendly service.....simple menu.....Outstanding food.....A gem of a place (note, cash only, but just off Western Rd with plenty of cash machines).

I've started noticing on Tripadvisor that people are giving 5 star reviews to restaurants that are just nice places to eat. And Tootkas is one that falls into that category. The place itself is nice enough- being small doesn't necessarily give it atmosphere, the tables are small and close together and there isn't anything inside to suggest that you're in... More

Visited this small restaurant one evening in September with group of six friends. Good food and service despite being really busy, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We had a variety of dishes in the menu all of which were tasty and well cooked. Would definitely visit again,

Had a meal here early Friday night in a group of four. Had expected great things from the TripAdvisor reviews but the meal was fairly ordinary. Nothing inedible, my Tom Yum Prawn soup was lovely as a starter (and not too spicy), and my Duck stir fry was tasty (duck was very tender), but I was expecting to be wowed,... More

My wife and I ate here on a Friday evening. Lovely little place not far from Brighton town centre. Food tastes as good as it always does when in Thailand which few, if any, other Thai restaurants manage in England. Good service, nice atmosphere, good prices, great food.

This was my first visit and I will certainly return. Everthing we ordered was very good, home made and fresh. The restaurant is intimate and softly lit. The staff were welcoming and charming. The menu is quite short, and doesn't contain any surprises, but all the dishes we ordered were very good. My companion chose the green duck with duck,... More
