Featured Brixton Restaurants
1. Sushi Revolution Japanese restaurant in Brixton 240 Ferndale Road - SW9
Two ex-Sticks'n'Sushi employees have opened this 'sushi and more' spot in Brixton; expect a "rebellious twist" to the classics.
2. Bellefields Mediterranean restaurant in Brixton 9 Stockwell Avenue - SW9
Ex-Bonnie Gull chef James Mathieson heads up this new restaurant, located inside and on the ground floor of Brixton's Design Store, owned by family architect firm Squire & Partners; opened in April 2021, there's a cobblestone courtyard for alfresco dining.
3. Naughty Piglets Steaks & grills restaurant in Brixton 28 Brixton Water Ln - SW2
Joe and Margaux Sharratt’s “distressed-chic Brixton/Brockwell Park fixture” continues to win “top marks” for its French-inspired “small-plates at reasonable prices” (“if I lived next door I’d get rid of my kitchen!”). The “friendly, chatty and informal staff” and “South London style” also go down well, although the occasional reporter is “not so sure about the natural wines”. The same team has opened a sister venue at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Other Palace theatre in Victoria (see also).
4. Salon Brixton British, Modern restaurant in Brixton 18 Market Row - SW9
“Ambitious modern British cuisine” – an “interesting” menu of “trendy but unfussy dishes that are well-prepared” – plus a good list of natural wines win consistent high praise for Nicholas Balfe’s “buzzy spot in Brixton market”, although “it can get a bit manic”. The team has opened a second venue, Levan in Peckham (see also).
5. Boqueria Spanish restaurant in Brixton 192 Acre Ln - SW2
“A really interesting menu” of “wonderful modern-style tapas and sharing plates” contributes to “a Spanish gastronomic experience” at this “vibrant” duo in Battersea and Clapham. “The young staff are always so friendly and welcoming”.
6. Rosa's Thai restaurant in Brixton 36 Atlantic Rd - SW9
The “lovely Thai food” at these reliable cafés is “impressively authentic given that they are a chain” – “excellent value” and “fast”, if occasionally let down by “iffy service”. Founded in 2008 by Saiphin and Alex Moore, who inherited the name of their first East End site, the group has 18 branches in London and expanded to Liverpool, Manchester, Reading (delivery only) and Leeds following the sale of a majority stake to US investors. The couple also have two spin-offs, Lao Café in Covent Garden and the new Chinese noodle bar Hoh Sek in St Katharine Docks.
7. Kricket Indian restaurant in Brixton 41-43 Atlantic Road - SW9
2017 Review: “A brilliant and totally different, fresh and wonderfully subtle fusion of southern Indian and European food” is “served up with a smile and music in a metal container in Brixton” as part of a “fun” and “funky” community project; a Soho branch is set to open in the autumn of 2016.
8. The Rum Kitchen Afro-Caribbean restaurant in Brixton 437 Coldharbour Ln - SW9
This Caribbean restaurant group expands to a third London location, on Brixton's foodie Coldharbour Lane. It also has sites in Notting Hill and Soho.
10. CHICKENliquor American restaurant in Brixton Brixton Village, Coldharbour Ln - SW9
Part of the MEATLiquor family, this Brixton branch specialises - as the name suggests - in chicken; wings, bites and burgers.
