A “lovely” but no-frills veggie café, in North Laine, whose “huge portions” (choose a main, two sides and toppings of your choice) and “friendly staff” make it a real hit with the student population – plus others who “wish it was nearer!”

“Staff are great, the music’s cool, and you always end up having a nice chat with fellow diners” – so say fans of this “always busy”, “cheap ’n’ cheerful” North Laine veggie cafeteria: “the essence of Brighton”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
