“A mainstay within the ever-changing Brighton scene” – this “simply decorated” Lanes fixture of four decades’ standing is “a favourite amongst the city’s many vegetarian restaurants”. “It can feel a bit squashed sometimes as tables are close together, but it’s always worth a visit” thanks to its “absolutely gorgeous, stunning, colourful food”.

“Super-busy” these days, this “closely packed” Lanes fixture has become a “veggie paradise” since opening almost 40 years ago, earning high ratings for meat-free and vegan dishes that please open-minded omnivores almost as much as its most natural audience.

“One of the must-try places if you’re up for a guilt-free meal in this leftie-Mecca of a city” – this Lanes fixture “has matured over the years into a sophisticated, not-to-be-missed veggie paradise” serving food that’s “always interesting and challenging”; and staff are “welcoming and very chatty too”. “Trying to go there without making a reservation means you can write off most of your day: it’s super busy and you’ll need to wait for at least an hour!”
