Eight Epic Places to Eat in Brixton

When it comes to eating well, Brixton does not disappoint. The restaurant are chill, affordable and London-class. Here's our rundown...


Love to eat good grub? We hear ya! Our serviced apartments in Brixton are central to too many epic places to eat…

Unlike most parts of London, the dining scene in Brixton is unpretentious, affordable and genuine. You can get Michelin-starred street food for the same price as a Nando’s and the ability to revel in supporting the local business community while you’re staying away from home.

The choice of restaurants is super diverse like its neighbourhood. Brimming with friendly and passionate foodies, ready to rival that of any other suburban town in Greater London.

Anyway, enough of the waffle. Here are nine places just a short trot from our serviced apartments in Brixton

Market Row


While a known saying in African might be ‘only a fool tests the depth of a river with both feet’, we went all into Chishuru head first and we’re proud to say there was in fact no risk of being fooled whatsoever.


When we rocked up, we had read and heard great things and we were ready to take our taste buds on safari.

Brixton Water Lane

Naughty Piglets

Naughty Piglets describes itself as having ‘an English heart with a French accent’. A true neighbourhood restaurant that serves 29 hungry guests all at once.


Since 2015, this local gaff has been giving you buzzy Bistrot with a bit of that high-end London zing which makes it feel a little more than what you can get elsewhere. It’s intimate, oozing with character and they have a very good wine list.

Brixton Village


This little space tucked away in Brixton Village is a hidden gem that could easily be walked past and unappreciated. It promises to serve you a little bit of downtown Osaka, in the heart of Brixton.


The sizzling Okan restaurant is a place for all your senses to soak up the sounds, sights and smells of their open kitchen. It certainly brought a smile to our faces.

The Blues Kitchen

Everybody say love. LOVE! Be fed while bopping to the blues.


The Blues Kitchen is not just a feast for the belly but also for the soul. We, foodies, love to talk about how food makes us feel, imagine combining that with some soothing, sexy and LIVE blues vibes.


They also have a very talented cocktail bar team which makes the perfect partnership to turn dinner into a little night out.

Acre Lane

The Beast of Brixton

This place throws itself at so many things and it works. The Beast of Brixton serves Korean fried chicken worthy of the gods, as well as roast dinner on a Sunday which is always packed with punters.


And if you fancy a few beers while getting involved, then no sweat as it’s only a few minutes away from our short stay apartments in Brixton.

Atlantic Road


Kricket was founded by uni friends Will Bowlby and Rik Campbell. They wanted to create an Indian restaurant combining British ingredients with the flavours and aromas of India.


The Anglo-Indian concept started out in a 20-seater shipping container at Pop Brixton and due to popular demand now has a permanent site in Brixton on Atlantic Road.

Coldharbour Lane


Nanban has become a huge success in its own right. The word (according to their links) means ‘southern barbarian,’ which is a Japanese word that gives a nod to the arrival of the Europeans into Southern Japan.

Nanban started as a pop-up in 2012, serving Japanese food of foreign origin. They moved into a permanent restaurant in Brixton in 2015, and have since been incorporating ingredients from Brixton Market into our cooking.

Founded by Chef Tim Anderson, if you’re a fan of Japanese (as you should) it’s worth stopping by.

Three Eight Four

This quaint little cocktail and small plate piece of paradise in Brixton is a testament to what the whole scene is about. The food is freshly prepped, the staff super friendly, it’s the ideal place to get a feel for being a ‘Brixtoner’.


Three Eight Four also host a rather scrummy brunch on Saturday’s too which is worth attending with or without a hangover.

What else is going on ya'll?
