London – Courtesan
69-73 Atlantic Road, Brixton SW9 8PU
This super retro stylised dim sum and tea parlour found right in the heart of Brixton is not to be sniffed at, the mood, the vibe and the Dim Sum are all wonderful, with the whole concept beautifully harping back to moody, atmospheric 1920s Old Shanghai.
Beautiful jade velvet booths, dark wooden tables, silk Chinese lanterns, traditional vintage Asian prints and flickering candles in abundance, all set the scene of those wonderful intriguing times gone by, bringing them right up to date.
The menu is pleasing and offers a wide choice of delicious Dim Sum presented and served in various traditional options. With a good selection of seafood, meat and veggie options to choose from and with the addition of other tasty little Cantonese treats on offer, you won’t leave hungry and you may even have tried something new!.
But it doesn’t end there, every Friday and Saturday night, feast your eyes on the intimate cabaret and burlesque performances laid on especially for restaurant guests. The entertainment even carries on late into the night, for those that don’t do early nights! Well it is Brixton after all, what else would you expect! Excellent.
Step back in time, relax and enjoy a fun and tasty meal, sip on cool cocktails or long and sleek glasses of sparking fizz and enjoy the top class show and it’s all in one venue. Cool, hip, fun and just perfect!
