    Fantastic vegetarian food. I'm a meat eater but don't miss it when I eat here. I've been several times, the service and food exceptional. The sharing platter to start is amazing. Well worth the visit

    Fabulous welcome, great choice of fine vegetarian and vegan food, and the proof is on the starter, main course and pudding. Hearty AND delicately flavoured food. A hard double act to pull off.

    The chips, scotch eggs and hummus trio are amazingly feeding... and finely crafted at the same time. Plus the staff is very well aware of baby trolleys and travellers backpacks.

    A place I will always return to - great food full of fabulous flavours and friendly staff! Recommend it 100% (reluctantly as I want to be able to get a table on my return)!

    The food is just amazing. A great selection - we dine as a group with just one vegetarian and we all happy. Great lunch time options available.

    Afternoon tea is amazing. Freshly made scones are to die for and loved the tea selection (go for the teapigs liquorice and peppermint - trust me)

    Really great food and service. If the weather's nice, sitting out in the alley way is a really pleasant break from the crowds in the area.

    I didn't realise it was vegetarian when I came in, but the staff were really friendly and their recommendations were spot-on, especially the beetroot spaghetti.

    Great for lunch but if you come on a Saturday, get here by about 12.30 if you don't want to wait for a table. Try the asparagus and egg yok starter.

    Vegetarian and Vegan restaturant that isn't at all uppity or pretentious. Not the cheapest but very reasonable for the quality of food and service, as well as a good selection of real ale... and even

    Gluten-Free Brighton: Seasonal, and a bit priceier, but they always have really good gluten-free options.

    Very tasty food, but expensive and small portions. Mezes are false economy, and we were charged a further £2 for more pitta to go with dips. Prepare to spend.

    Sit down vegetarian/vegan. The salad I ordered was yummy, but didn’t live up to the hype of reviews.
