When the original Hoppers opened its doors in 2015, the intimate Soho site fast became one of the most popular and well-known restaurants in London. The Sri Lankan eatery’s popularity has blossomed, with the group opening a second site in St Christopher’s Place in 2017 and a third in King's Cross in 2020. Now, the restaurants also offer meal kits, takeaway and even have a shop where you can purchase truly authentic ingredients alongside cookbooks, cocktails and more. 

The interiors are inspired by the Sri Lankan coastal journey from the capital Colombo to the historical Dutch town Galle, showcasing hand-woven fabric wall panels and cast-iron-framed glass lanterns. The menu features firm favourites such as banana chips, hot butter squid, egg hoppers, chilli cheese dosas, crab kari and Kalupol roast chicken, alongside a plethora of chutneys and sambols.

The excellent Sri Lankan food on offer here is accompanied by a choice of colourful cocktails, including the arrack attack, made with arrack, house ginger beer and coriander seeds. There are punches for something a little lighter, such as the Serendip spritz composed of white port, arrack, white tea, jasmine and basil seeds. Shorter cocktails like a Sri Lankan take on the espresso martini are also available, as well as house beers made in partnership with Camden Town Brewery, and a to-the-point wine list with all options available by the glass or bottle. Those seeking something softer can opt for a masala buttermilk, green papaya soda, house ginger beer or lighthouse swizzle, made with green mango, mint leaves, cinnamon and soda. 

Hoppers King’s Cross is housed in the same building as Taiwanese steamed bun merchants Bao, another JKS investment. The two restaurants share an alfresco dining space, with outdoor seating now a common feature of restaurants in the area – nearby German Gymnasium, The Lighterman and Granary Square Brasserie all boast terraces.
