Review: Bottomless Brunch At Tootoomoo, London (To Tickle Your Pan Asian Tastebuds)

This blog has evolved massively from that late night in the middle of March 2 years ago when I pulled out my laptop bleary eyed, had a snoring 6 month old sleeping beside me and I instinctively decided to start writing a blog.

I couldn't imagine not having this blog now. It's not only my happy place. It's the place where I wind down. The place where I get to use my creativity. It's the place that I have all of you! I have your amazing support when I need to wear my heart on my sleeve (the latest open letter to my lady squad is the perfect example). It's also the first place I think to come when I want to shout about something - whether it be the latest restaurant I've dined in, my travel recommendations, hotel reviews, kids fashion you just HAVE to know about and all of my favourite recipes. There's a joke in my office that I am the queen of recommendations too so it's not just on the blog. I guess you can say I'm just a sharer :)

I visited a brunch place a couple of weekends ago, which was so amazing I was always going to share it with you. However I have to admit that the thought did cross my mind to just maybe keep this one to myself. I feel like London hasn't been let in on this secret and I want to make sure I can always book a table - I only counted 9 of them.


Tootoomoo are a group of restaurants in North London with a mouth watering Pan Asian menu and a selection to cater for any preference. They have a dine in option as well as delivery service. On the weekends they do a bottomless brunch. Now ya'll know how much I love my bottomless brunches so as soon as Tootoomoo got in touch, told me their deal and asked me to come in for a review I rallied my best friend and we were there. I was lucky enough to visit the Islington restaurant which is cozy hideaway on St Paul's Road. It's colourful and the awesome decor makes you feel like you could be sitting in a joint in China or Vietnam eating yummy street food.

Bottomless Brunch At TooTooMoo

Here's the deal on the brunch. You can chose from four options depending how long you want to order for and if you want drinks or not:
  • 1.5 hour food & drinks - £35
  • 1.5 hour food only - £30
  • 2 hour food & drinks - £45
  • 2 hour food only - £40
We had a 1.5 hour slot (90 mins). The time started from our first order. Now here's the best bit - in your time you can order anything on the menu - asian tapas, main plates, sides ANYTHING! As well as anything from the bar which has a huge selection of cocktails, mocktails, wines, beers and soft drinks. I kid you not ANYTHING! The only caveat is that they take last orders early. So for our reservation it was 70 minutes in to your time so its not a true 90 minute slot but if you order wisely you will need that 20 minutes to digest, believe me. 


The food. Oh the food. It was delicious. It was fresh. It was tasty. There were too many options to choose from and although we had to stop ordering food before our time was up because my belly was telling me it couldn't possibly fit in any more, my mind was wishing I could experience more. My best friend and I are both vegetarians so if you are a meat eater there are even more options to explore and you will totes have a dilemma on your hands when it comes to menu selection.






We enjoyed multiple rounds of Tootootapas consisting of vegetarian spring rolls, vegetarian potstickers, edamame and kapa sushi maki (sushi rolls filled with cucumber). If I was pressed to pick a favourite I would say it was the vegetarian potsticker which is a fried dumpling of Tootoomoo goodness but they were all so so yummy.

We were almost too full after the tapas selection but we fancied trying a main so we pressed on and ordered a tofu Szechuan chilli with vermicelli noodles on the side. This is a dish packed with tofu, Szechuan pepper, cashews, crisp veggies and a 'to die for' sauce. The noodles were the perfect accompaniment.





Last but not least I need to mention the drinks. Most bottomless brunch places in London offer free flowing prosecco but these guys include their whole cocktail menu. They can be served by the jug if you all fancy drinking the same thing or if you want to try different things they can do individual cocktails too. Between us we tried the Mojito mixed with rum, lime. fresh mint, soda water and crushed ice. The Cosmopolitan with vodka, cointreau, lime, cranberry juice and orange zest, shaken not stirred and Caipirinha which is a classic mix of cachaca, fresh lime, sugar and crushed ice. This is only half of the menu and the rest of the cocktail collection looks just as wonderful.


The day that we dined the restaurant was super quiet which is why I get the very distinct feeling that London doesn't know this secret yet. If they did I have no doubts that there would be a queue to get in. We felt like we had a lot of special attention being one of only a few diners during our reservation which was super cool. There was always someone around to reach out to when we wanted to place another order and for me that is key to a good bottomless brunch experience.

My verdict?

This is going to be a big call here - This has been my favourite bottomless brunch experiences in London so far. Not just for the amazing food. Not just because of the excellent service. Or the super cool decor. Not just because the place feels super cosy and you're not jam packed with people spilling out of the restaurant. It's a mixture of all of those things and the fact that it's something very different to what most of the other London brunches offer. I also love that it's truly bottomless - no rules, no restrictions on what you can and cant order. Come with a rumbling belly and be prepared to fill it with endless, tapas, sushi, sashimi, aromatic duck with pancakes, grilled salmon, noodles, stir fries, curries (I could go on and on). Drink allllll the cocktails, OK maybe not all of them but do a good job of getting through the list because they are good and will not disappoint. Be prepared to roll out of the restaurant and not be able to eat for the rest of the day. You will love it!

My final mention will be that even the basement bathroom is cool and I had to include a bathroom selfie in this review just to show you the cool tile patterns :)


TooTooMoo offer Bottomless Brunch in the Islington, Crouch End and Whetstone restaurants and they also have an additional location in Highgate that offers takeaway, collection or delivery.

North London is my hood, and this is definitely my latest hot tip. Do you have any for me?

  5. Looks like a lovely place, and the food looks delicious. I was dubious about the paying for time concept, as never done it. But I can see that it works well, and I love that it includes any food and any drink. wonderful.
