Consistently good food and cheap prices with fast service. The only issue I continue to have with Toko Baru is the lack of an ecofiltro for customers who request a glass of water. The only option is a bottle and an ecofiltro I assume would...More

This is a great place for gluten intolerants! I love their falafels, curries are great and sweet potato chips. Dishes come with great sauces, portions are pretty big and the prices are good for travellers' budget.

Very large portions and after a long hike, it was appreciated. We had the lentil falafel and the chickpea falafel. I really preferred the chickpea falafel, but both were fine. Not bad, not great. Just substantial and filling and inexpensive. I thought the food would...More

The curries here are excellent. I recommend the chicken tikka madras. They do also have Indonesian curries as well as falafel, which one of my friends had and loved. The main meals are a decent size so I wouldn't recommend a starter. They only accept...More

Toko Baru was founded in 2008. The menu is quite eclectic and can be described as pan-Asian and mid eastern. Toko Baru strives to serve a great quality meal for a fair price. Toko Baru has become a staple among locals as well as the expat and traveler community in Antigua. All food is prepared locally and Toko Baru prides itself on some very tasty meals like the Shoarma Kebab- The choice of how to eat the meal lies with the customer- the options are: in a Pita Bread- in a wheat tortilla (as a burrito) or on a plate with Rice.All meals are served with our sauces- a yogurt garlic based sauce, a fruity sauce – and a very hot version of a Sambal sauce (made out of local chilies).
