For some highly tasty seafood at even tastier prices check
out the Shellfish Hut (very near Brighton
Pier). You can enjoy a mixed bowl of shellfish for under
five quid, which is something of a find in the city.
Red Veg is a pleasant vegetarian restaurant
which serves up a cracking veggie burger for under a fiver – the
location is along Gardner St along North Laine.
Fancy an Indian? One of the most popular places to visit
is The interestingly named Black Chapati – the
mains are somewhat pricey but with the reputation of being
the best Indian restaurant in the South, it’s got to
be worth a visit.
Along Kemp Town is the pleasant La Capannina which
serves up fantastic Italian cuisine at pretty standard prices.
There’s everything from chicken and fish to pizza and
pasta and the atmosphere is lively. The restaurant is along
A cozy Thai restaurant can be found along St James Street
in Kemptown – Muang Thai is a slightly
pricey eastern restaurant that serves up very good Oriental
Thai dishes. Another pleasant Thai place is The Little
Buddah – despite
the good food it’s actually the “bring your own
wine” feature that’s really cute. Great if you’re
on a tight money-rope but you still fancy getting a few glasses
of wine without having to pay exorbidant restaurant rates.
For fine French cuisine, get on over to The Gingerman which
is situated in Norfolk Square (in Hove).
If you’re visiting from abroad, a visit to De
Vere Grand along Kings Road is a must. Why? You
can sample traditional tea and cucumber sandwiches (an
English traditional snack) everyday between 3 and 6pm.
It’s somewhat pricey but worth a visit for the experience
and ambience alone.
Onto even grander places to eat – Loch Fyne on Western
Road was designed by one of the same architects that worked
on the Royal Pavilion. It’s situated on the seafront
and it’s lavishly spread over two floors. There’s
a great choice of seafood and expensive wines here – but
don’t go there on a budget or you may end up having
to wash the dishes.
