This restaurant is amazing right down from the service to the menu ! I love it when my mum comes to brighton as she is a vegetarian we have eaten here many times and can not fault it . The complimentary sparking or still water is a really lovely touch to. Can't wait to come back

Went for mothers day and took the family. The atmosphere was lovely, the decor was lovely, the food was lovely but it took a while. We seemed to be waiting a while for drinks and food. but when it arrived it was fantastic. Overall we were there for two hours once we finished dessert. We don't regret going though.

Myself and partner visited in March 17. The food was nothing short of excellent - tasty, wholesome vegetarian food served by excellent staff and good wine all at a reasonable price. We went the following night too - so a lot of praise for these guys. Wish they had a branch close to our home.

We thoroughly enjoyed a sharing platter. Lovely flavours - plenty for two and a mango, avocado, halloumi and cashew nut salad. Friendly staff and delicious food. Been many times; consistently good. Drinks are expensive, but this is central Brighton.

As famous as this place is for its long running status as a pure veggie restaurant in Brighton as well as its amazing food, it's tucked away in The Lanes of Brighton and easy to miss. With genuinely warm and enthusiastic service (from the excellent Kayla) and a concise and accomplished drink list to accompany the food, it made for... More

I came here with my dad when he was in town a few weeks ago, and we were not disappointed in the slightest. Greeted with smiles and comfort. The service was impeccable and all of our waiters had a great sense of humour and enjoyed interacting with us! Our food was perfect, it arrived swiftly and was devoured within minutes.... More

Been meaning to go here for years and wasn't disappointed- went for a quick solo dinner after a work trip and had the coconut aubergine and sweet potato curry which was delicious. Good service - attentive but not overbearing.
