Unsurprisingly, Satay Bar serves Malaysian and Indonesian satay dishes. The clientele are mainly young and funky Brixton-ites, having a swift drink and meal before going to the revitalised Ritzy Cinema round the corner, or kicking back for a longer drinking session with friends, although hearing conversation is difficult above the loud music constantly playing. The decor is simple with plain wooden tables and dim lighting, but it's clean, fresh and colourful. The brighter bar area is a great place to perch on a stool, sample great cocktails and watch the frenetic activity of the friendly bar staff. Energetic waiters rush between tables in the rather cramped dining area (where you're often quite literally shoulder-to-shoulder with diners at adjoining tables), serving the reliable, if not earth-shatteringly imaginative fare. But it's excellent value and a great choice if you're in the area.
I have been a regular brixton bar-fly for a while now and the Satay seems to be the only place that remains consistent. I'm not sure about the R&B music though- over the last year I have heard more contemporary music The Fridays are nice-some girl DJs play like they are in their living room! Much nicer than stony-faced macho dj types! The food is tops- I love the giant prawns in mango chutney.mmm!
I think the Satay Bar is a real gem in the heart of Brixton. Two minutes from the tube, this Indonesian/thai restaurant serves quality food in a really cool, laid back environment. The staff is competent and attentive and the cocktails are a treat.
The Rendang Ayam chicken is my favourite dish but it's not the only reason why I would go back.
