Satay sticks in the West End

Indonesian restaurant Toba opened this week in St James’s Market just off Piccadilly Circus from Pino Edward Sinaga, a former manager at the Chiltern Fire House and Annabel’s, Richard Caring’s private members club in Mayfair.

The move into London’s West End marks a significant step up for Pino, who has operated a street-food outfit called Pino’s Warung in a Camden railway arch for almost four years.

Inspired by Pino’s memory of his late mother’s cooking, Toba serves a menu of classic Indonesian dishes including beef rendang, chicken satay and nasi goreng.

Diners are welcome to bring their own bottles during the soft launch, while Pino plans to introduce a selection of wine and Indonesian cocktails in March.
