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…
Brixton Water Lane
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.
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.
Brixton Water Lane
Maremma, where Tuscany meets Brixton.
This cozy Italian spot is the perfect place to unwind with a glass of vino and a plate of handmade pasta. Their menu is a love letter to the flavors of Tuscany, with hearty dishes like wild boar ragu and creamy burrata.
Plus, their warm and intimate ambiance will make you feel like you’re dining in the heart of Florence!
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.
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.
Eat of Eden
Looking for a little slice of paradise in the heart of Brixton? Look no further than Eat of Eden!
This vibrant eatery offers up a delicious array of Caribbean-inspired vegan dishes that will leave you feeling nourished and satisfied. From jerk tofu to sweet plantains, their menu is bursting with bold flavors and wholesome ingredients.
