It’s not often that you get surprised by a Sunday lunch. Kricket Brixton might be better known for their innovative Indian inspired food but they also do a cracking Sunday lunch.

We experienced this for ourselves at their Brixton branch recently. Being the earliest customers in their pink clad restaurant under the arches, we settled in for a flavour journey.

On Sundays, they have a set menu with a choice of several starters and either roast beef or spiced pumpkin for the main course.

Although it doesn’t include the famous samphire pakora, there are some other choices.

From the selection, we had Bhel Puri, Butter Garlic Black pepper crab and som Masala duck hearts. No where else has put all these ingredients together in these combinations. 

We share the starters as there are no rules. Just dig in anyway you fancy. Every dish is a combindation of ingredients delivered in a totally new way.

The bhel puri is a plate of crunchiness drenched in a tamarind and yoghurt dressing. Following that, a bowl of crab served with crispy shards of papadums to be used as spoons to scoop up the rich seafood. In between, a morsel of grilled, spiced duck heart, which was both unusual and a delicious.

The star of the lunch is the Sunday lunch served on a metal thali platter. Medium rare slices of aged beef sirloin, flanked by some tremendous roast potatoes and the long list of sides. Also on the plate are beef raan, a rich, slow cooked unctuous braised beef, hyderabadi aubergine, beetroot poriyal, butter spinach and a pot of marrow bone gravy.

For a roast beef dish, it is a triumph. The central characters, beef and roast potatoes, are superbly executed. All the rich and spiced sides marry well and brings a bit of extra TKK

There are a couple of choice for pudding, if you still have space. We had a lovely halwa ice cream with the shortest piece of shortbread, with a cup of chai. A fitting Modern Indian end to a fab lunch.Halwa ice cream KricketObviously, the other diners have cottoned on to Kricket’s Sunday lunch as the place was full. I’d highly advise you to make a booking and not just turn up. You’ll love it.
