Brixton, and the surrounding area, is home to an incredible selection of restaurants, encompassing wonderful cuisines from all over the world. We may not be able to visit these restaurants at the moment. But, thanks to the proliferation of food delivery services, we can still indulge in their delightful flavours. Here’s our guide to the best takeaway food near Brixton.

KataKata – Tasty vegetarian takeaway food near Brixton

Buckwheat galette

KataKata specialises in gluten free, buckwheat pancakes called galettes. Deliciously savoury, they’re filled with fresh vegetarian and vegan ingredients. We recommend the incredibly good value £4.00 simple goat galette. It’s stuffed with mushrooms, herbs and creamy goat cheese and served with a grated beetroot, carrot and spinach salad. The rest of the menu is priced at £6.90. Also worth trying are the vegan affair with aubergine, spinach and mushrooms and the Caribbean twist with jerk tofu, sweet potato, mushrooms and aubergine. The £2.60 fresh ginger and lime tea is a ferociously fiery number that complements the lovingly made French/Cameroonian food. In the mood for pancakes now?

Rosa’s Thai Cafe – Awesome Thai food takeaway near Brixton

Thai massaman curry

A quick visit to Rosa’s Thai website—sadly the only way to visit the establishment at this time—reveals the popular brand has used over 400 tons of coconut milk to serve over 6 million customers since opening a market stall on Brick Lane in 2007. Using traditional Thai recipes to make seasonal British ingredients like wild mushrooms and Jersey Royal potatoes sing, Rosa’s hits the mark with dishes such as £11.25 butternut red curry, £10.75 chicken and cashew stir fry and £12.25 massaman curry.

Posh fried chicken that really is finger lickin’ good. The £7.50 buffalo burger is a masterpiece of fast food satisfaction. The buttermilk and honey batter is unctuous and crisp, the chicken is moist and juicy and the spicy buffalo sauce mixes with cooling ranch sauce and sour pickles to complete the package. Best enjoyed with £3.50 crunchy, French fries coated in Cajun salt.

500 Degrees – Traditional pizza delivery near Brixton

Sourdough pizza

As the name suggests, this Italian restaurant prepares its divine sourdough pizzas in a traditional wood fired oven reaching temperatures in excess of 500 degrees Celsius. This creates a crispy dough with a soup-like tomato, basil and milky fior di latte cheese base. Recommended toppings include the £12.95 Italian spicy pizza with nduja, ham and red onions or the £12.85 Napoletana pizza with anchovies, Kalamata black olives, capers and oregano. For our money, the best pizza in Brixon.

Malinka is a lovely little Polish deli on the Brixton Road. It specialises in delicious homemade pierogi (filled dumplings of central and eastern European origin). Each portion includes eight pierogi topped with fried onion for £7.95. We recommend the creamy cottage cheese and potato flavour or the tart sauerkraut and wild mushroom variety.

Longstanding south London cheapo favourite La Luna is now offering delivery of its outstanding Italian fare. Okay, we come clean. La Luna may have been delivering its food for ages, but we only just noticed. Nonetheless, we’re very happy that we can still get hold of their award-winning plates during lockdown. We’ll be having the light and crispy £7.50 Calamari and zucchini fritters, the gooey £10.90 four cheese pizza and, saving the best until last, the silky £11.90 linguine alle vongole (linguine with clams).
