Had a chicken stir fry with basil and chilli and my wife had pad Thai. Both cooked with fresh vibrant ingredients and well balanced flavours..

Came here on the recommendation of friends who used to live above it and who'd had many a takeaway from there. Definitely the best recommendation we've had in a long time. A great experience from start to finish, the service was warm and friendly, the atmosphere welcoming and the food amazing - I especially recommend their penang curry. Although its... More

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
