My friend had a pretty traumatic insistent where she chocked on some food and couldn’t breathe. We had to assist her to cough it up. Not one staff member helped or even came over to see if she was ok or what happened. Pretty appalling staff.

First time at Tootoomoo and we enjoyed the homely spicy food; the street shop ambience is Ok although early on a chilly evening the frequent takeaway delivery ins and outs did not help the dining area to stay warm. Ok for a good value quick meal, the food and service were both good.

Precios no incluyen el IVA (lo descubres cuando te traen la cuenta) y te añaden el cargo por servicio. Lo que podría haber sido una cena excelente por 30 GBP se convirtió en una buena cena por más de 42 GBP.

Great little spot to grab a bite to eat. We ended up sharing some starters and dim sum and it was great tapas style set up. Really good value.

Very good service but the food was nothing special - disappointing. There were very limited vegan starters but plenty of mains, although the brown rice contained butter, unexpected for Asian food.

Great menu and brunch deal, staff weren’t super friendly and it took a while for them to refill drinks/take food away.

I loved the first time here and have been again a couple of times.
The food is always delicious and service very attentive.

The place is veeeeeery small and it's hard to get in and out of your seat if the place is crowded. That is the only downside.

Hopefully you can expand soon :)

Small plates with quite a lot of choice for a small restaurant. Quick service and delicious food, especially the Beef Rendang.

Nice place to eat and try out Asian cuisine. Decor could do with an update but one could argue that it is authentic.
Relax environment with good music playing in the background. Could be considered life like and real in regards to the decor, and i could imagine that there are eateries in Hanoi that look exactly like this place. An extensive menu with plenty of choices.

I loved the place itself, small with a few tables so it is a nice cosy local place with rustic decor and a really pleasant atmosphere. It was busy but wasn't crowded and this was on NYE!
The 4 of us had a large mixed tapas selection and we loved all of it, no complaints about the food whatsoever and the price was very reasonable.
The only downside was a moody waitress who was in a rush even though the restaurant wasn't full. I know it was NYE but less haste and more attention to your diners goes a long way in customer service especially in the food service game when tips are measured on service.

Really nice food.
We had the sharing platter and although it looked small at the beginning it was very filling.
The place was relatively small but lucky us there was only one couple when we arrived. I can imagine that if it gets crowded it can be quite uncomfortable as there is not much space. But apart from that loved the food and the decor

Had a Bottomless Brunch here last weekend with 6 of my friends.
Food was incredibly delicious and plentiful... for only £35p.p for unlimited food and drinks, it was definitely worth the price!
Some of the staff could have been a bit friendly, but not a huge negative.
Had a great time!

Good fun! We met our daughter and son in law for a meal. Didn't want anything fancy and this seemed to be a buzzy venue in a buzzy area. Our meal was at 7pm. It was quite quiet when we arrived but seemed to be livening up when we left an hour and a half later. We shared the adventure menu which gave access to a good range of dishes which arrived promptly. As it is "tapas style" there are no starters or mains. Menu is Asian fusion food. Good value. There's more than one of these restaurants so you probably don't need to go out of your way. Décor is basic and tables and chairs are close together but that's part of it's appeal. I'd certainly go again if I was in the area or near another one.

Enjoyed a fresh, well portioned, "tapas" lunch plates with friends. Very friendly service, lovely food - a proper fusion of tastes and styles. Cantina style dining - 2 mins walk from Highbury & Islington. Well worth a visit.

Good service and really good food. The Duck & Watermelon Salad and Chicken Rendang were both delicious.

The restaurant is quite small, so you might want to book in advance.

Would definitely recommend.

We booked because of the good reviews and were not disappointed. Looks a little unusual from the outside and we werent sure we had the right place until the friendly owner came out to chat to us outside. The food was mind blowing. I couldnt believe that simple smoked chicken and vegetarian dumplings could taste that good. There is a lot of bonkers humour throughout the menu names and atmosphere with the veg dumplings called "potstickers". It was incredibly reasonable and on the weekends you can eat and drink as much as you like for 35 pounds!!! Im not sure how they turn a profit. We are planning our return visit.
ps.... the service is pretty quirky and we had to wait a long time for someone to take orders or pay the bill but luckily we werent in a rush.

Food is very good and you get good value for your money - the beef rendang was authentic and the squid was crispy and fresh. It is tiny though and you are really packed in so it's not the greatest ambience and the service is pretty slow. Still though, the food is worth the squeeze.
