Kricket is permanently closed
You may have heard of Kricket, and you may even have heard it being called the next big thing. Though it’ll do if you absolutely need to satisfy a craving for spice in the area, it definitely isn’t the next big thing.
This is one of the sit-down restaurants located in a shipping container upstairs at Pop Brixton, the boxpark full of food stalls and bars, and here they serve Indian small plates with a twist. Think Keralan fried chicken with a light batter of chickpea flour, or samphire pakoras. While the food is perfectly pleasant, we’ve found it under-spiced and underwhelming. In our opinion, it’s just not the destination-worthy spot people might tell you it is: there’s better modern Indian around town, and better food in Brixton in general.
