Pop Brixton's trendy Indian-fusion spot moved from a shipping container to its first bricks-and-mortar restaurant, in Soho. (They are seeking a permanent home in Brixton, too.)
Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
“Living up to all the rave reviews… and then some!” Rik Campbell and Will Bowlby’s “fun dive, off increasingly gaudy Shaftesbury Avenue” (the Soho successor to the wildly popular Brixton prototype in a shipping container) is “a whole new ball game!” offering “a great experience, even if it’s mad and rushed”. The “design is simple but sophisticated”, with much of the seating on stools at a long counter; and the “profoundly original dishes” – “derived largely from Mumbai street food but either elevated a notch or transformed imaginatively” – is “spicy without being overpowering” and “quite exceptional”.
Kricket Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Unusual Indian small dishes. Friendly service."
"Really enjoyable experience, great atmosphere, levels of service superb. Food really, really good, could spend an afternoon there."
"Was floored by the food. A bit one dimensional. Was expecting more. Too similar to a run of the mill curry house. Lacked the vibrancy I was after"
"Mad, rushed, single-theme dishes need sharing; great if always rushed experience"
