My first time in Broadway Market and at Tokova. Not sure quite what to expect from a venue inside a market and when we arrived to a very busy restaurant I was concerned there was no table and service would be slow. Could not have been more wrong. Although Christina and her daughter were super busy, they took time to explain the menu and chat more generally and we never felt neglected. Having the dishes explained with such passion makes selecting which to reject very difficult, but we settled on our six dishes and nibbles to start. Everything was stunning. Outstanding flavours and delivered in the perfect order. The excellent king prawn and octopus was probably the least interesting and maybe lacked the stunning flavours of other dishes but take nothing away from the food for this it was still very tasty. The menu and dinks list is quite small but that just means everything is done to perfection and this place really works well. We loved it and I'm sure you will too.

We had the most amazing plates of food sitting at the counter overlooking the chefs. The owner is passionate about the menu and you can tell that each dish has been carefully created and executed beautifully. The place was lively, fun and buzzing with activity and we will return with friends to try the plates we couldn’t manage on the first visit.

Great food and great atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious.

I especially enjoyed the presa and the chorizo.

As it was a Friday night they were extremely busy and service was a little on the slow side, which was understandable as everyone was trying to have their food before the covid 10pm closing time

The passion at this restaurant is outstanding. Cooking our chorizo over a ceramic pig fire was fun but the pork was the standout dish of the night or the mackerel or maybe the black rice! It was all delicious, as good as you’d get in any West End eatery. GO!

I submit to you, dear reader, that this is not only the best restaurant in Tooting but among the best in London. The food is imaginative, well presented and most importantly, delicious. Quality ingredients are used, many sourced from Spain, and there is a mixture of quite elaborate dishes and simple ones. This week my wife and I had 6 dishes, but my favourite was a fried duck egg with morcilla. Simply cooked but utterly fab. The owner is charming and friendly and clearly takes pride in her restaurant. We like to sit at the bar so we can see the chefs at work - they produce many dishes at a time but they are always perfectly cooked and presented. There is a good selection of wines, spirits and beer. I had a couple of bottles of Basque cider. At 6%, i felt a bit squiffy after but the food soaked it up. Highly recommended.

We recently went for lunch under the eat out to help out scheme to Tokova and found it a wonderful place.
The owner was incredible in explaining the menu and providing suggestions, and was very friendly. All the dishes we had were exceptional - the chorizo and the presa were the highlights. Highly recommended.
