We gave Tookta's Cafe a go based upon Trip Advisor feedback and we were not disappointed. Small place with a personal touch. Attentive staff and very clean. Food was freshly prepared and very flavoursome. A small menu but easy to find things we wanted and really enjoyed. Certainly worth a visit. Suggest you book as some people had to be... More

Tookta's Cafe is the proof that you don't need a highly sophisticated menu, plush surroundings or expensive fare for people to feel as though they have had a good meal. The food in Tookta's is traditional Thai cooking at its best - savoury, spicey and delicious. Stepping into the restaurant is like walking into someone's lounge - it is small,... More

This is such a lovely intimate thai restaurant just off Western Road so away from the hustle and bustle of the more popular North Laines. The staff and owners are really friendly and welcoming and the food is incredible - very authentic and always cooked fresh on the day. Definitely worth a visit although Fridays and Saturdays can get very... More

Walking through the door to Tookta's cafe I was immediately transported back to my visit to Bangkok. I enjoyed every second of being in there. The dining area is quite small and seats about 18-20 at a time, which means you'd be advised to make a reservation to ensure you get a seat. For such a small space there was... More

Trip advisor strikes again, we're new to Brighton, followed the reviews about this restaurant and they were spot on, Only they missed about the superb personality of the servicing staff and head chef, who obviously enjoys coming out into the restaurant and having a bit of fun with her customrers, very thai and very appreciated. All food was beautiful, very... More

Lovely find tucked away off Western Rd. Food was fab. You could watch the chef chop and cook each meal. Mixed platter for starter melted in mouth. Curry and stir fry very tasty and fresh. Lots of ginger. Wine list limited and music suspect. Good service and full - book a slot or you could be disappointed for the 9... More

This is very local to me and I’ve been here numerous times over the years. I’ve never had a bad meal! Tookta herself is absolutely delightful and she makes everyone feel so welcome, nothing is ever too much trouble and the Thai food she produces is as authentic as anything you can get this side of the Andaman Sea. I... More

Booking essential, so many people turned away on a Saturday evening. I absolutely love this place and the food is simply delicious. Returned to this beautiful little front room restaurant with the good lady wife; her first time. After all that she'd heard about Tookta's, she was expecting a good meal and wasn't disappointed. Mixed starters and the chilli prawns,... More
