As soon as you walk into Tooktas Cafe, it feels warm and inviting. There are only about ten tables, so it has a feel of coziness and intimacy about it. Flickering candles light the small room and makes the place feel romantic in an understated and low key way. Staff were very friendly and service was extremely good. We had the shared platter to start which was lovely and fresh and consisted of prawns, veg, prawn crackers, sesame toast and some chilli dipping sauce. I then had green thai curry with jasmine rice, which was divine...and definitely had a kick! I opted to take the chillis out, but they definitely made the curry flavorsome! My husband had a beef in oyster sauce stir fry which I am told was very good also.
This place is very good. It's down to earth, Cody, intimiate and has a really good feel to it. Staff make it excellent. Most definitely returning.

“A true pleasure !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2011

My wife and myself had the pleasure of a visit to Tooktas last night, November 13th and were served a meal that was pure joy. As previous reviewers have said it is a truly great little restaurant where they make you feel really comfortable and the whole experience is a delight. The main meal is not much more than you would pay for a decent takeaway elsewhere, but so much better. We can only say a big thank you !! We can't wait to revisit Brighton to try it again.

“Lived up to all the reviews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2011

My wife and I love Thai food and with this in mind, we visited Tookta's on a Sunday night . Don't expect a fancy establishment with candelabras and flash decor- its a down to earth restaurant where you could almost be sitting in someone's home. Indeed the waiter and later, the owner herself made us feel entirely at home and was more than pleased to seek our opinion on the food and have a chat.

The place was pretty busy- the only downside being that as a couple, you can't book a table. First things first, the food is superb. Extremely tasty and probably amongst the finest Thai food I've tasted.

We had starters and mains and drinks and the bill came to about £27 - excellent value and service. After our meal, the owner came out to talk to us and sat for about 15 minutes telling us how it all started and the role that Trip Advisor had played in the rise in prominence and popularity of the restaurant!

A thoroughly enjoyable evening. We'll be back.

Delicious food, very reasonably priced and a cosy candlelit location. Friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Best restaurant we went to in Brighton.
