Amazing Thai food & very friendly service!

Booked very last minute on a Thursday night during a visit to Brighton. Did our first night out in an expensive seafood restaurant and wanted to cut down the cost on our second night so we visited Tookta's - wish we'd spent both nights here! The food was incredible.

I came here for dinner with my parents last Saturday. The food was delightful! Proper Thail, just like you would get in Thailand. Big portions as well. Definitely recommend booking as it is a tiny restaurant, just like being in someone's front room for a dinner party! Also be warned that you have to order two courses on the weekend... More

We are visiting Brighton and found this restuarant online. It is one of the best meals we have had in a long time and the service was outstanding. The food was very tasty and the owners and waiters made us very welcome. If down in Brighton again we would definitely visit again and would recommend to others

This restaurant was chosen as a pre-birthday dinner by my boyfriend as I really like Thai food - it didn't disappoint. Not a big place, but good, prompt service, and delicious dishes. Would love to go again.

Very cosy and intimate restaurant. Menu wasn't very extensive but the food was excellent and very good value. Restaurant interior was much more tasteful than in the pictures I've seen here. Watch out, they only accept cash!!! No cards, Apple Pay etc!

This is about the sixth time we have been and is our favourite Brighton place to eat. This is like going to a friend's house who happens to be an utterly brilliant cook. We were booked for 7:30 but we wanted to eat earlier. The staff were very accommodating and fitted us in at 6;30. The restaurant is small; seating... More

Lovely quaint little thai cafe, Tookta herself is a wonderful cook with a big personality so make sure to say hello! We go here at least once a month to satisfy my craving for her squid starter, spicey, salty, fragrant and a rich curry. A small menu of punchy flavours perfectly cooked and presented, around half a dozen types each... More

Both my partner and I have been to Thailand and have missed the authentic flavours that so many UK restaurants fail to achieve. This restaurant is the exception. Flavours that are fragrant, balanced and not over pronounced. Friendly service...a shame it is so small inside as I'm sure it'd be packed however large the room.
