I first ate at Tukta ten years ago. They had a place near the pier then. Their new place is much bigger and nicer, but doesnt have a sea view. It has an open kitchen. You can go and watch them cooking if you like. The food is the best you can get on Koh Tao. Ive tried a lot... More

One of the best places to get Thai food on the island. Friendly staff (especially when they recognise you after a few visits) and the food is awesome but cheap at the same time.

We ate at Tukta Thai about 4 or 5 times during our 7 night stay on the island and were never disappointed with the food. Some of the best we had in Thailand and so cheap that we always rounded the bill up a bit (even though tipping is not common where we come from). The owners didn't seem overly... More

The food here is great and not over priced for local standards, just a shame the staff seem so uninterested. Slow service with bad attitude lets down the wonderful food. The curries in particular are wonderfully rich and full of flavour.

Easy to find if you first get a map from hotel/hostel. At least it was on our map that we took from the hotel. The sign is quite small on the road but if you are walking by or just driving slowly you can't miss this one. Good, reasonably priced food. We tried a few Thai dishes here and they... More

Brilliant, cheap, and authentic. Doesn't look like much when you turn up, but we had some of the best Thai food here. Cheap and quick, you can't ask for much more! The do a lot of veggie options. There is a lot of meat on the menu, but a good amount of veggie options, which kept us happy.

As just about everyone says, great restaurant, really authentic and food yummy. Genuine taste of basic Thailand which does extend to the loo I'm afraid. Go before you get there and have a great time! Try the frog curry, I wasn't brave enough!

We were recommended to try this restaurant and after also reading the reviews on trip advisor went there last night and we were certainly not disappointed. The food was good home cooked fresh, tasty thai food and excellent value for money, we will certainly eat there again before we leave Koh Tao.

I was eating in Tukta almost every day – lunch, dinner or both. Food is delicious and quickly served, but most importantly it is probably the cheapest food on the island. The restaurant is run by a few ladies, you can see them preparing your food. The restaurant is very basic, but the food tastes like homemade :)
