Tooting’s Tangia is an independent and family run Moroccan restaurant that prides itself on serving up some of London’s finest Moroccan and Mediterranean dishes with a modern gourmet twist. Mitcham Road is a quiet spot, and by bringing the bold flavours of Moroccan cooking to the south west the team behind Tangia are shaking things up. Here the food is at once comforting with hints of fine dining – the perfect blend for a restaurant in Tooting.
Tooting’s finest Moroccan restaurant is run by Losine Khezour, whose passion for cooking led him from his native Morocco to France and then to London. He spent time cheffing in the Royal Overseas League, moments from Buckingham Palace before making the leap into opening his own restaurant with Mitcham Road’s Tangia, serving an innovative mix of classic Moroccan and Mediterranean food with a gourmet flair honed serving British royals and servicemen in central London.
Tooting’s Tangia takes its name from the traditional tagine, a clay pot in which stews are prepared Moroccan-style. These stews form one of the cornerstones of the menu at this Mitcham Road eatery. Aside from stew, there’s also steaks and fish to satisfy the carnivorous appetite, or dishes which lead with roasted vegetables for vegetarian diners. London has a number of great Moroccan eateries, but few can boast such serious pedigree in the kitchen as well as uniting Moroccan and Mediterranean flavours. Find this Tooting restaurant moments from Tooting Broadway tube station in the south west.
Visited last night for dinner with my family. Great food. Tagines were tasty. Amazing steak. Good service. Would highly recommend visiting. Will be coming back again.
Great food and friendly service- one of the best places to eat in Tooting. The owner is really welcoming and warm. Terrific tangines. Wide choice to choose from.
Second visit and we will be back again. Great food, lovely setting, attentive staff. The menu is varied too. We could come here every week and not get bored. Highly recommended.
