Booked a table for 7 of us in advance as I didn't want to risk not getting to visit Tookta and her fabulous restaurant again. I have been before but none of my friends had. I wasn't disappointed as yet again our evening was faultless. We had mixed starters for 4 and then 3 of us shared a selection of... More

We arrived at Tookta's around 6:30 (opens at 6) to find customers already there and several tables booked but no problem getting a table. Really enjoyed our meal of prawn starters and Pad Thai/beef curry. Singha beers went down a treat as well. Will try to return before too long.

After our one only visit before, I went back here with my partner for our one year anniversary. A quiet Monday night and for the first half an hour we had the place to ourselves. Bliss! Once again the food was incredible. Thai fish cakes for myself and spring rolls for my lady, followed by chicken pad thai and I... More

We visited Tookta's last weekend for the first time and loved it! Really friendly staff, cosy atmosphere and the food was delicious. We will definitely be returning. If you're in Brighton and looking for authentic Thai food then definitely try Tookta's.

We took some visiting New Zealanders to Tookta's for dinner and we weren't disappointed. The food was as good as usual and the welcome, considering we hadn't visited for many months, was very warm and gave a good impression of the place to our friends. They commented on the way home how excellent the food had been - and they... More

This was my 2nd trip to this place and like before it did not disappoint. I had possibly the best curry in years and this restaurant in perhaps a prime example of the beauty of doing fewer things well. It is cosy but we loved the window table and the feeling that you are eating in someone's living room. I... More

This 'Cafe' provides real Thai food freshly cooked and with good service. It is however very small with only about 20 places. As such it can be extremely noisy so it is not a place for a romantic evening. The tables are close together and were a bit sticky from the previous meals and the kitchen which is close by.... More
