SquareMeal Review of Kricket Brixton

Gold Award

Will Bowlby and Rik Campbell first launched Kricket onto an adoring public at Pop Brixton in 2016 before re-locating to an equally loved permanent site in Soho. Now they’re back where their success story first started with this new site under the railway arches by Brixton Market (they opened a flagship site in White City in the summer of 2018).


The new Brixton branch is larger than Soho and incorporates a separate bar where you can sample punchy cocktails such as the rum-based Dark Matter ahead of a table in the colonial-meets-industrial dining room (all dark-wood tables and house plants) – although as this Kricket takes bookings, you won’t have to wait to sit down.


As in Soho, the short menu has a core list of Kricket classics joined by dishes that change every couple of months. The now legendary Keralan fried chicken, dusted with pepper and served with a tangy curry leaf mayonnaise for dipping, is worth ordering whether this is your first visit or your fifteenth. The crunchy bhel puris also make a welcome appearance with their swirl of tamarind stickiness, puffed rice and dollops of yoghurt.


Elsewhere, Goan sausage pao are like intensely meaty mini burger buns with a mild afterglow of chilli heat, while a colourful bowl of juicy tomatoes livened up with hints of spring onion, ginger and sesame is one of several veggie options – although like all the cooking, spice levels are toned down for Western palates. A smooth lassi-style mango parfait is the sole dessert.


Pocket-friendly, cool and complemented by fun and chatty staff, this branch of Kricket is a welcome return to a buzzing Brixton restaurant scene it helped to kick-start.

As with all of the Kricket group, the food is sensational; innovative, refreshing, light but packed with so much flavour. I've been lucky to visit each of their spots now and it's rare to say that on each visit, despite where I go, the food quality is consistently incredible. Never have I thought I'd be able to convert so many meat lovers to samphire pakoras, and had to have seconds or thirds of the dishes each time (100% NOT complaining). I took my Portuguese friend to the soft launch of their Brixton restaurant and as always, they didn't disappoint. The venue is very well decorated under the arches which reminds me of the original Pop Brixton venue and the service was excellent. They didn't have some of their beers on being a soft launch and the one I was recommended was quickly changed after the face I pulled when first trying it. Despite a delay in the food with it being a soft launch and an influx of people which no doubt impacted the kitchen, everything served was hot, beautifully presented and tasty as I come to expect. I love trying new places and cuisines in London but even now, after my unheard of 5th visit to Kricket, I look forward to my next as I know I won't be able to help myself.
