“Lovely food and charming service”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We were entertaining friends from out of the country and this restaurant was recommended to us.

The food was excellent and the service was really quite charming. With (I think) about 8 tables this is always going to be an intimate dining experience. Certainly one to recommend.

“Great food, felt transported back to Thailand!!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

There's little point in repeating the excellent detail of the many 5 star reviews of the excellent Tookta's Cafe. Suffice it to say, we had the same experience and unreservedly endorse those comments.

“Good food, nice little local restaurant”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

This is a tiny restaurant, there can't be more than 8 tables, two ladies do the cooking in the back, with a waiter. The ladies were very friendly and nice, the presentation of the food was very nice, the food was good and as described, there was plenty. We had the vegetable spring rolls as appetizers, there were 5 of them and they were very tasty, I had the chicken stir fry, the vegetables were crunchy as I like them, service was quick.

Note that this is a cash only restaurant, I realized only after we ordered, thankfully there is a bank machine right around the corner!

“Independant Brighton at its best!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Another classic Brighton restaurant that isn't a franchise that has been squeezed like the proverbial lemon. A petite venue that offers intimacy, individuality and personality. The menu is concise, for a great value and sounded/tasted delicious. The Panang Curry was sensational and was the best choice on the table ;) I've lived in Brighton for 25 years and have never been but will be going again for sure.The Panang Curry was sensational and was the best choice on the table ;) Only concern is that when it is busy, the noise in the restaurant can cause you to raise your voice to talk to those on the table. However, this is merely a positive externality from people enjoying themselves... well worth a visit!

“Well worth a visit, you won't be disappointed.”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We gave Tookta's Cafe a go based upon Trip Advisor feedback and we were not disappointed. Small place with a personal touch. Attentive staff and very clean. Food was freshly prepared and very flavoursome. A small menu but easy to find things we wanted and really enjoyed. Certainly worth a visit. Suggest you book as some people had to be turned away as they were full.
