About

Kudu is a friendly neighbourhood restaurant in the heart of Peckham.
Our menu is shaped by the seasons, creative plates that combine the very best produce with a splash of imagination to give familiar dishes a playful twist.
Our South African roots inspire our food - whether that's slow cooking in a potjie pot over hot coals, or baking our delicious Kudu bread. ​Sourced as much as possible from local suppliers, we celebrate hunters & foragers and gather what we can from our own herb garden and vegetable plot.
​Kudu is a couple team- Amy Corbin & Patrick Williams - brought together by our love of good food and a closely held dream to create a special place where we can share our favourite dishes with friends, family and neighbours.

Incredible meal, the kudu bread is a must have! We sat at the counter which I recommend for 2 people. This is my second time and won’t be the last

We went for lunch and initially were a bit disappointed at the smaller lunch menu - but we needn't have been! We ordered the onglet (for 2) and veg braai to share and every single bite was so mindblowingly amazing. One of the best meals we've had in London so far. Will definitely be back for dinner. The service was very lovely too.

What an amazing place !!! The food was so so good everything we tried was delicious. Full of different and surprising flavors. The bread, the asparagus, the onion Tatin, the Onglet... Moreover the restaurant is so charming and romantic. The ambiance is very nice.
I cannot wait to come back.

A great find. The food was excellent - really different tastes, beautifully presented - great to see the chefs at work behind the bar and loved meeting Elsa the dog who came in right at the end of the evening. Don't worry if you are not a fan of dogs in restaurants - she isn't there most of the time, but we left late and are dog lovers any way - and she is beautiful!

Unexpectedly fabulous and unusual food. Perfect bavette steak with extraordinary mushrooms and delicate vegetable purée amongst the highlights. Also excellent smoke-infused cocktail as aperitif. Would go out of my way to revisit.

On a cold winter’s night it was rather exciting to draw the entrance curtains ... and enter the hubbub! The food and service were good to very good - up there with 5 or 6 other places in Peckham - but the atmosphere was a massive treat.

Thank you I had a lovely time. Brunch menu was a delight. Eggs were well cooked. My avocado mash was nicely seasoned. All is well in the world if your Sunday kicks off to a start like mine at Kudo.

We sat on the high table (2-seats) of which there were 3. Not suitable for people with short legs as seats & table fixed at height. We took the middle so away from noise of main restaurant which was positively buzzing. There is seating along the bar area also. Our waitress from Poland was very knowledgable and very pleasant which always makes eating-out enjoyable. Food was close to Michelin standard- highest praise I can think of. We ate more than we should as we couldn’t decide what to ‘not say no to’! We were very very full as each dish is supposedly for sharing so we had the kudu bread with seafood dip (meant for two sharing) + Parmesan churros (cause we were greedy) salmon plate & mussels plate, then the onglet (beef) which was for two sharing plus a bottle of Prosecco which complemented all of the dishes. With 12 ½% service charge added bill came to £111 & change - worth every penny. Still salivating 2 days later. Yum

A real treat to walk off the street in Peckham to this little oasis of South African cool. Really low key style that is so relaxing. Great service without being overbearing and the food is sensational. We weren’t going to have the bread until the waitress suggested it, and what a mistake that would of been to ignore. The whole experience was delightful and refreshing!
