Restaurant description

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.

    Lovely experience we were seated next to some very drunk loud girls and after a discreet word with the manager, the girls were moved to a more suitable table friendly staff and great tasting food

    It was a really nice atmosphere. Good music, good food/drinks & good service. Our waitress was really helpful and good recommendations for the food & drinks. Didn’t feel rushed because of the restrictions, as in a lot of places. Will definitely be back. Excellent value for money.

    Although the dining experience was great, I was disgusted by how we were treated by the security team outside, because I didnt have my I.d. which may I add that there is no indication on the website that you have to carry od with you to dine in. I felt so disrespected, they were loud and rude. Because of this I'm unsure I'll return as I think customers should be treated with respect from the outside

    Best customer service ever, from a young lady by the name of Charlene. The food was exceptional.

    Food was excellent - the prawns for starters are highly recommended. The small jerk plate be aware it is exactly as it says small so if your hungry get a large! Had to wait sometime for our table to become available although we had booked in advance, which was the only negative of the dining experience

    The starter (Shrimp) wasn't what I expected there wasn't much taste or satisfaction after eating it.

    The food was really good! The service was fantastic too. My issue was the fact that ai went there about 9pm, and by then it had turned into a bar/club. So you can’t talk whilst you eat as the music was so loud! And it is kinda awkward eating with so many eyes on your food!
