Square Meal Review of Khamsa Brixton ?

It’s rare to find a restaurant focusing solely on Algerian cooking, which is what makes Khamsa so intriguing. Surrounded by pizza joints on a characterless stretch of Acre Lane, the restaurant has clearly been put together on a budget: witness the glossed white floor tiles, hanging drapes & functional furniture. However, it’s the good-value cooking that does the talking. Food comes packed with boldly spiced North African flavours, providing a real culinary adventure. Start with a choice of seven salads to share between two – perhaps kamounia (spiced chickpeas topped with Algerian merguez sausage) – then move on to a creamy pot of braised chicken with sultanas, spiced with cumin & paprika, & thickened with ground almonds. The chef makes excellent sweetened pastries for dessert, while the smiling host provides speedy service.

    A Table For Two :: Khamsa

    Khamsa needs not to boast. It’s a neighbourhood establishment. A part of the community. Started by a husband and wife team a few years ago, it’s clear to see that this intimate Algerian place has heart. Although, it’s more than one of those well worn locals you go to every Friday night. If you tried to come here for dinner though, you will probably be out of luck since the small split level restaurant only hold about 40 covers in total and is rarely open on both floors. The restaurant is popular but the owners clearly don’t want to compromise on quality for the sake of making an extra buck...
