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.
We would definitely come back! Homemade food and great service
Very friendly and efficient service. Loved the chicken pastilla starter, which was a good size. The chicken and olive tagine was delicious. I don't normally like couscous as I find it rather bland, but the one served here was full of flavour. A great experience!
Excellent evening, warm welcome, excellent food and service, great value. We booked for Valentine evening and had a great experience. Highly recommended to anyone wanting Moroccan food
Really lovely food, and attentive staff. Beautiful interior decoration, too! We really enjoyed having our 3rd anniversary at Tangia :-) Nicely located a short walk from Tooting Broadway.
Excellent food and service. Staff made us feel very welcome as always this was my 5th time at Tangia and I will definitely be returning. The Tagines are only £9.95 each on a Tuesday and are more than worth it I had the seafood tagine whilst my partner had the lamb tagine. All food is always cooked to perfection.
My daughter treated me to a meal last Tuesday evening at Tangia. I chose a really delicious lamb tagine. It was my first visit and I felt truly welcome and comfortable in nice surroundings. All in all it was a lovely evening. Highly recommended.
Lovely restaurant in the heart of Tooting. Beautiful food, amazing service, lovely atmosphere. Tangia is a fairly small restaurant but it's authentic and I would recommend to anyone. The chef and owner came out after we'd eaten and introduced himself, such a nice touch!
Saturday evening was our first visit to Tangia but it will definitely not be out last! All the staff were friendly and the food was delicious. The owner (and chef) came out from the kitchen to meet us which was a lovely touch.
Lovely restaurant serving fresh food! It was our first time at taNgia and I think that detail was noted as the chef came out to us at the end of our meal to check if everything was ok and if we had been before. We were also given complimentary sweet treats! We ordered flat bread with hummus and vegetables to start, and a mixed grill for the main. The meats were so tasty and tender. I will definitely be going back!
I have been here several times with friends and have always rated it very highly. Yesterday I went with my family and my experience was different. The waitresses that served me were good and no issues there. Every time previously I have gone the owner comes and talks to his customers and you really feel the personal touch that is important in a small restaurant. This time he didn't even though we we're only two tables there. The slow cooked lamb tagine that I ordered was not soft like it has been on previous occasions. Whilst still good food, no ambience or music. I guess I'm more disappointed because I know what a great place it usually is.
