tooting community


Far removed from the idea of a restaurant as a destination, Rick's Restaurant strives to be very much

part of its Tooting neighbourhood, a favourite local haunt to be visited time and time again. Rick's Restaurant prides itself with

the 2009 Tooting Community Good Neighbour Award, 2009 Wandsworth Green Business Award and

2011 Taste of Tooting Best Restaurant Award.
