We (Khamisi & Daniel) grew up together in South London, after meeting on the first day of school. Our chemistry in the kitchen is based on 20 years of friendship, and a shared passion for feel-good food.
For us good food has to come with good vibes! Drums & Flats was created to do more than just serve people good food, but to share the energy, passion and pride that our culture, and community gave us.
We started Drums & Flats out of our parents’ kitchen’s, testing recipes on our friends and family. After countless days and nights spent perfecting each dish, we decided it was time to take our food on the road, and share it with the people of London.
Following a series of pop-ups across London, we opened our first permanent site in 2017, before moving to Boxpark Wembley in 2018. We are now based at The Smugglers Tavern on Warren Street, open Tuesday – Saturday. BOOK NOW.
Drums & Flats is a reflection of the food, music and culture we grew up around. We call it South London Soul Food. Inspired by the flavours that we grew up on, and have come across over the years. We serve food we’re truly passionate about. It’s food that makes you feel good inside. It’s not pretentious or exclusive, but it’s packed full of flavour and culture.
