My wife and I love Tookta's Cafe. We have now eaten here three times, and the food on each occasion has been delicious. The restaurant is small and cosy and quite quirky in its decor. Every time we have been there, the owner, Tookta, has come out to chat to her guests. Well worth a visit if you love Thai... More

This is a real gem of a restaurant set in the back streets of Brighton. Beautiful, authentic Thai food cooked with love: the best I've eaten outside of Thailand. It is small though so book to avoid disappointment.

It's a bit of a walk to get to, but it's so worth it. We were welcomed by the waiter who immediately gave us a big jug of water. The menu offers a few starters, just some different types of currys and some stir fries. We ordered the fish cakes, which were tasty but nothing special, though the sauce was... More

My husband and I adore Tookta's. We live in Eastbourne but will happily drive here for Thai because it is the best in the city. This is the most authentic Thai food we have eaten outside of Thailand, simply delicious. The ambience is cosy and intimate and the service is fantastic - Tookta will come out and chat to you...

We were entertaining friends from out of the country and this restaurant was recommended to us. The food was excellent and the service was really quite charming. With (I think) about 8 tables this is always going to be an intimate dining experience. Certainly one to recommend.

There's little point in repeating the excellent detail of the many 5 star reviews of the excellent Tookta's Cafe. Suffice it to say, we had the same experience and unreservedly endorse those comments.

This is a tiny restaurant, there can't be more than 8 tables, two ladies do the cooking in the back, with a waiter. The ladies were very friendly and nice, the presentation of the food was very nice, the food was good and as described, there was plenty. We had the vegetable spring rolls as appetizers, there were 5 of... More
