On the old Babette site, the Kudu team are bringing live fire cooking to Peckham, with this braai restaurant, which opened in August 2021.
Harden's survey result
“A simply stunning South African braai restaurant” – Amy Corbin and Patrick Williams’s “cosy and classy” yearling (opened in September 2021) delivers “some of the best food in a long time” to excited local reporters, “with confident, bold flavours” (“a special shout out to the delectable peri peri butter and monkey gland sauce”). “Superb service too (catered for the veggie and the vegan in our group without batting an eyelid, and without sacrificing flavour!)”.
On the Nunhead site of Babette (RIP): this latest part of Amy Corbin (yes, her father) and Patrick Williams’s Kudu empire is – as befits Patrick’s South African roots – centred on the braai – so expect lots of open-fire dishes. It opened in September 2021, too late for survey feedback.
For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
