Most people seem to love this place and certainly its a bit unusual/quirky being in someone's front room. The team are nice, I thought the food was a bit, well, normal. Not much choice and I like that but it tasted like I had done it and certainly not like it does in Thailand. Certainly nothing special and nothing bad,... More

Went to Tookta's after reading on this site that it was very good. I wasn't disappointed. The service was excellent, the place was not full but busy and the food was exceptional. I like my food spicy and it certainly was-I had the mixed starters shared with a friend which was a very generous portion then he had chicken pad... More

Deliciously tasty meal, beautiful little "front room" restaurant, Warm friendly welcome from the owner who treated us like her personal friends. I came here on a recommendation and I haven't stopped telling people about it. I would advise anyone who goes to Brighton to go to this restaurant, you won't regret it. Top Tip: they only accept cash, NO cards.... More

We visited as a group a week ago. We booked the table in advance and could still only get in for 7 pm which is a good sign. The service was great from the outset. Our friends had told us the food was excellent and it was. The menu is compact and easy to understand. We took our leftovers home.... More

We visited this Cafe on 13 February - it was as good as always! It is quite small - really like a living room feel. The service is great as is the food. I would highly recommend it.

This is my third time at Tookta's Café - but definitely won't be my last. You are treated to a very warm welcome - the lovely Tookta even remembered us. The food is freshly cooked and very homemade making it a unique experience. The menu is limited - but that is because they let the quality of the food do... More

Slow...slow...slow service but a warm welcome. The restaurant was warm and welcoming. The food was edible and hot...but Thai it was not...and it was not nice; it could have come out of a tin. It reminded me of the dreary cafes you used to find at the seaside...you had to eat something but there was no pleasure. It was not... More

we had a splendid meal in this little cafe. It was warm on a cold windy night, the food was delicious and fresh and very good value for money. The menu was wonderfully uncomplicated - which I found very useful in a thai restaurant. We had a very relaxed evening - and the complementary tea and biscuits were greatly appreciated!

Tried Tookta's before and wasn't very impressed, thought maybe my choice of food, so when my other half wanted Thai I thought Id give them another chance as they still get good reviews. Well on a cold , wet and windy evening we walked up and the first thing on opening the door is a sign saying " cash only"... More
