My father-in-law once bought two ‘authentic’ Samsung tablets from a guy on the street and, uh, let’s just say that he didn’t get his money back. You won’t need your money back at KaoSarn, which serves simple, satisfying, and authentic Thai food from a small cafe in Brixton Arcade. We like to hit it up when we get cravings for comforting South-East Asian food, and it’s also good for an afternoon pick-me-up. The moo ping pork skewers are a winner, and make sure the minced chicken larb salad is in your order too.

Negril serves Caribbean comfort food up on Brixton Hill. It’s far enough away from the main drag to feel calm, and has one of the best patios in SW2.
Brixton’s Naughty Piglets is a dream of a neighbourhood restaurant with great vibes and modern French food.
Other Side Fried
This is the best fried chicken sandwich in London and one of the best burgers in town, full stop.

Som Saa was once a pop up in London Fields, and is now a full blown restaurant near Spitalfields that’s become a new London Thai classic.
Spicy Basil in Kilburn doesn’t look like much from the outside, but trust us and head inside for great Thai food.
There are proper waits for Kiln’s high-octane Thai dishes, but it’s absolutely worth the wait. Grab a seat at the bar, get the short-rib curry.
