Albeit “casual” and “relaxed”, this “shabby chic” South Indian in the Lanes (with offshoots in Kemptown and at the station) is a “great find”, and the “award-winning selection of craft beer and great array of alcohol-free brews for drivers is a great bonus”.

A “very relaxed Lanes curry house with an interesting menu” that explores south Indian cuisine, plus a good selection of craft beer. “It’s not a posh joint but the smiling service helps make it a great place to visit.” Launched in 2014, it now has a Kemptown offshoot and a kiosk at the station.

“Very basic” but “buzzing” and “very friendly” Lanes café serving “a small range” of “proper spicy dishes”, “with an emphasis on the slightly lighter side of Indian cooking, and good for veggies too”. Also now with a ‘Kemptown Kitchen’ and kiosk at the station.

“Basic but friendly” Lanes café praised by fans of its “different” Indian dishes (“light and strong on veggie options”), although it also has its critics, who feel it’s “nice enough” but “masquerading as something special”. Also at the Temple Bar (121 Western Road, Brighton, BN1 2AD) and with a kiosk at the station.
