i like this place.
i tracked it down after reading the other great reviews.
i wouldn't say it's the best thai food on the island as others have (the staff seem to be burmese anyway) but it's consistently good. It's nice to know you can go here and not worry about what surprise is in store for you today.
i've been quite a few times, theres never really many customers. probably because of the location. tucked away off the road down near chalok. I can't really remember what I have eaten here.
The one thing I do remember is the milo and banana shake. Love it.
Atmosphere is quiet with a couple of kids running around and a tv always on, in a outdoor but undercover setting.
staff are nice enough.
also they have some cheap western egg n bacon options for breakfast. some places charge double what these guys do for 2 eggs and a bit of bacon on toast.... 60 baht or something

I've lived on Koh Tao off and on for ten years and have been eating at Tukta for most of that time. The quality never changes. My friends and I often order takeaways too and they deliver to anywhere on the island. Try the prawn cakes with the gorgeous green spicy sauce, the Massaman is to die for too.

Living on the island, I eat at Tukta at least a few times a week. It has an extensive Thai menu with great prices, and the food is delicious. As a vegetarian I have lots of options, and the staff are very accommodating when I want to modify my dishes (no sugar/ no MSG). When it's busy it can take a while to get your food but that's to be expected since everything is made fresh. The atmosphere isn't incredible, they definitely spend more time making good food than decorating. I highly recommend the spicy vegetable salad and stir-fried green curry. I never get bored of Tukta's food.

Love the food at this place. It is basic and not so pretty here but the food is amazing. We went as a group and ordered for the table and shared, a really great way to try the whole menu. A must if you like Thai food
