‘Italian tapas’ is a recent invention of London’s restaurants and a prerogative of Venice only in Italy. Here it is done with inventiveness and good ingredients. How can stuffed mushrooms be amazing? But they were and so was the duck spread and the tagliatelle spinach and almonds. One criticism to the menu was the lack of meat/fish dishes (only 2 amongst 20sh). Service was attentive. The place is cosy as all Brixton village restaurants are but the owner should sort out the extractor fan because by the end of the dinner our eyes were read from the fumes coming from the kitchen and the clothes totally smelly. Excellent value for money though. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Great it’s the only word that come to my mind. Great food: veggie and vegan, dishes prepared in front of you. Amazing fresh juices. Great location: full of colours and paintings, an outside seating area. Great people: that works there, very attentinve and passionate about they place they’re in. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Jamal is a real personality it seems in and out of the kitchen. He had lots of stories of food and beyond, was personable about the Brixton area and was a real delight to talk with. The cous cous is the best I’ve had in London, and the Tajines are exceptionally good value (we shared one between 2 and it was enough). Great quiet vibe, a real hidden gem. Can’t wait to return.

Modern small plates created using British ingredients and the ancient techniques of smoking, curing and preserving.
We’re not sure how to best define or label our cooking. Modern British Tapas? That’s a start but still, it doesn’t give much away. Generally, we try to avoid it, leaving it up to the six words up top to let our guests’ imaginations roam.
Born out of a chance encounter back in 2014, we ended up working in The Shed in Notting Hill. Their template, small plates of delicious British food, left a lasting impression on how we think food could progress further into the twenty-first century.
We love the simplicity of seasonal and local ingredients. These aspects motivate us as well as bringing in other global flavours, ingredients, and cuisines. In this way, we try and reflect the diversity and multiculturality of South London and the UK through our food.More
