We are somewhat saddened to visit this joint on our last day on the island but it almost wanna make you extend your vacation type of food. Big Menu to select from and you just sit out in the garden with the nice breeze you need if staying on this island.

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 of places, but Tukta is always number one for me.
I highly recommend it.

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 friendly to begin with but smiles, manners and a few Thai words made them much friendlier as time went on. Nothing flash about the restaurant but the food is amazing and we would recommend to everyone. It's a pity we can't get thai food that good back home.
