Our favourite for fine flavours - British tapas menu based on local produce. Stunning flavours. It is recommended to take a bar seat by the kitchen, if available. A selection of meat, fish and vegetable dishes that have never disappointed. They do magical things with local produce. Advance booking (up to a week in advance) is a must.

The quintessential Brighton restaurant. Entirely unique and quite wonderful Indian home-cooked vegetarian food. The Dhai Bhel Puri is fantastic, the curries and dhals are all great - and you can ask for a half portion of two, to make up for a full portion. Advance booking recommended, as it is normally busy throughout the week (even though they will always do their best to squeeze you in). See also: Planet India in Hove.

Metrodeco have an amazing selection and range of teas of all kinds, from herbal tisanes through white and green teas to a great range of black teas, in a quirky and off-beam-glamorous setting in Kemptown village. There is also very good - and enormous - cake, on a daily range basis. Nice destination if you are going for a wander on a sunny day and want to stroll eastward. The interior is off-beat vintage mismatched glamour; very Brightonian.

Planet India in Hove is well worth a visit even if you've been to the Brighton 'mothership' - perhaps especially so, if you love (as we do) the uniquely Brightonian, warm and welcoming, quirky and strangely glamorous, super-friendly atmosphere and home-cooked Indian food served there. Planet India in Hove has its own vibe, and comes with marble pillars, a glorious mix of raj and contemporary Indian fusion decor, disco cherubs in the ceiling, a bar that is promising to be a, if not the, new and uniquely hidden gem, and a *great* thali Tuesdays through to Thursdays that leaves no tastebud unexplored and is very good value. A la carte otherwise. All vegetarian. Yum!
