Superb food and service

It may not look much from the outside but the food is amazing. Everything is fresh and tasty and the service very attentive. I would not hesitate to recommend this place. One note of warning - it only takes cash.

So happy to have found this lovely little restaurant, tucked away in one of the lesser known streets of Brighton. The food was wonderful - especially the Green Curry and the service one of the warmest I've ever experienced. Good value to boot! I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant, nor to visit it again.......

Its quite small and i felt that gave the staff the chance to make you feel like your getting special treatment. The Thai green curry was the best ive... More

Decided to try based on Trip Advisor reviews whilst having a weekend in Brighton with my Husband. Firstly the staff are exceeding friendly and made us feel welcome straight away. The restaurant is quite small and intimate and has a lovely cosy feel with the twinkly lights and great choice of background music. The food was the best Thai we... More

What a superbly friendly place. When we arrived I saw my husband's name so we sat down. What a fabulous sense of humour the staff have and it is a family affair. Food is superb.

Really great quality food at very reasonable prices, wish there was one like this near home. Shared a starter platter and then had Pad Thai Prawn to follow - so tasty and cooked to perfection. If I get down here again I will be visiting for sure.

Second time we have visited and both the service and food have been amazing. Delicious dishes with authentic thai flavours. Unassuming from the outside, but a true thai experience in the centre of Brighton. Lovely staff, serving amazing food.

A hidden gem, Tookta's is hidden away up a side street. Thankfully a friend lives close by so we came across it by chance. So glad we did. It is a tiny restaurant and booking would be advisable. The food is wonderful and excellent value. The waiting staff are really helpful and friendly. Will be going back there soon.

The previous reviews hit the nail on the head; the friendly staff, small but atmospheric and intimate nature make this restaurant a very good find. Despite a small kitchen, a full dining area and only 1 waiter, the food was prompt and the quality was excellent. I have never been Thailand, so can't comment on authenticity, but regardless, it was... More
