Bringing its own funky Caribbean spirit to South London, Rum Kitchen Brixton is a buzzing venue to enjoy Caribbean staples like jerk chicken and a huge rum selection, all against a backdrop of reggae and dancehall music.

The Rum Kitchen menu pulls together all the Caribbean favourites, with plenty of colour and spice. Nibble on jerk wings, island-spiced fried squid and sweetcorn fritters, before moving on to signature jerk chicken served with additions like gravy, sweet potato mash and pineapple. There are towering burgers, and larger plates with mouthwatering flavours like red snapper, West Indian veg curry, and shredded salads with exotic fruits.

A massive selection of imported rums are served from the bar at The Rum Kitchen in Brixton, which go into the celebrated cocktail list filled with signature creations. There are also beers from Jamaica and Barbados, and plenty of soft drinks too.

With its live Caribbean soundtrack and shabby chic style, The Rum Kitchen Brixton is an essential choice for diners looking for an energetic eventing in South London. Brixton Tube Station is just 2 minutes' walk away.

    The waitress was good, but the food was poor. We had to wait ages for our order and when it came it was incorrect, and the some of the fish dishes was not cook through and raw in the middle of the snappers. The cocktails were very weak. The staff was friendly and the manager was accommodating. The after music dance area was nice.

    The food and service were good overall, although we would've loved to sit in the booth as it was vacant. The one issue we had was actually the music, i.e. the volume of the music, which didn't allow us to have a conversation. I think that needs to rethought. The music was great, but not for dining. I think it should be kept rather low so that people can catch up and enjoy their food and then later in the evening you can 'pump up the volume' for the party. This is really important because we found it difficult to enjoy the experience because of that.

    Food was nice & music was good. Service a bit slow but overall a good night.

    I booked for a table of 4 at 9.15pm, we were not seated until 9.45pm as our table was not ready. As if that wasn’t bad enough we then had to wait another 30 minutes before the waitress came to take our order! We continuously asked staff passing our table if we could order and we were told time and time again that someone will be with us soon. Our drinks then took another 30 minutes to come and the food followed not long after. The service was so poor that I felt like leaving but I stayed as we had all made the effort to come out that night.
    We all ordered a jerk bowl which was super spicy. If you cannot handle spice then steer clear but if you can then you’ll love it.
    Once it got to around 11pm the atmosphere was vibrant and everyone had a great time dancing to music. Although initially we were disappointed with the terrible service, the end of the night made up for it and it was a really good night out.

    The food, drinks and vibes were excellent. Only negative was that the venue was closed early by the police cutting our night out short.

    Services was poor did not get our drinks till we nearly finished our food.
    Over crowded couldn't find the seating area because everyone is crowded at the bar
    Soho Rum kitchen is way better

    Our waiter Darren was amazing considering the environment of it being busy, music, people dancing etc. So with that kind of customer service it was good. Some people waited longer for their drinks and food but that is normal considering the amount of us at the table. Overall great !
