Food for Friends
The restaurant caters for people with special dietary needs, there are vegan and gluten-free options for many dishes on the menu, as well as freshly baked vegan and gluten-free breads, cakes and scones every day.
Really impressed with the menu for vegans especially the dessert menu. The owner was really great with all our allergies, went over and above. Will definitely be returning.
Wonderful food for veggie and vegan alike. Recommended fine dining for foodies
As always the service and food is good.
Always recommend if asked where we eat as vegetarian.
Really good, nice meal, perfect service, I will come back
Wonderful food! The service was very friendly and efficient and made me feel very comfortable (which surprised me considering the circumstances). The food is a little pricey but definitely worth it. I’ve never had a bad meal here.
This vegetarian restaurant always manages to to bring an extra special twist to any vegetarian dish.
I ordered the vegetarian burger and fries, it wasn’t any old burger and fries, the bun was a artisan bun, the fries had grated Parmesan on and the tofu and butternut squash burger was full of flavour.
This is the first meal out we have had since lockdown has been lifted. We felt totally safe and staff were great at keeping their customers at a safe distance from each other. We observed lots of cleaning of tables etc. We will most certainly be back very soon.
Amazing food great service. Will continue to go as much as I can
We were so looking forward to a post-lockdown meal out but were disappointed by the lack of Covid-19 prevention measures at the restaurant. You would have been forgiven for thinking that these were normal times (which would have been nice except that it left us feel uncomfortable and really doesn’t set the right precedent).
Despite there being hand sanitiser on the reception desk, we weren’t offered any on arrival and none of the staff were wearing masks. At one point the waitress leaned over me to point out an item that was no longer available on the menu, forcing me to move out of her way.
There was a half-hearted reference to downloading their app and adding details for contact tracing but it wasn’t actively encouraged.
On top of this, we found the food in general to be bland, especially the Sri Lankan curry which lacked spice.
That said, the cocktail was delicious and we enjoyed the onion pakoras.
Unfortunately a disappointing experience. We really hope the restaurant takes note and implements some of the measures we’ve seen at other F&B outlets, where staff are wearing masks, social distancing from patrons, wrapping cutlery in napkins so as not to keep touching it and frequently sanitising their hands.
Wonderful place, staff were amazing, food was delicious and for a good price. Absolutely would not hesitate to go again.
This is my favourite restaurant in Brighton! The food is incredible and staff are always so friendly and helpful.
Amazingly tasty food! Brilliant service. Would highly recommend!
Amazing evening! Fantastic food and great service. Who could ask for anything better. 😍
Lovely food & fantastic service, don’t miss this place and have a visit & I am sure you will go there again!
Wonderful friendly staff who are very attentive and helpful.
Great food too!
Amazing vegan and gluten free options, the most delicious vegetarian food we've had!
Great food, with so many delicious-sounding choices on the menu. I had a sublime Scotch egg. My daughter had a gorgeous pasta dish. Helpful staff, and lovely ambience. The cocktails were a must-try delight.
The best meal I have had. A small well constructed and considered and executed menu. All dishes we had we perfect.
Really enjoyed the food- slightly disappointed that the menu hasn’t changed for a while. Also poor beer selection
Excellent food and service. Slightly expensive but you get what you pay for and couldn’t fault anything.
Super food in a fantastic location. Will definitely be going back.
Disappointed with the veggie burger. Brioche bun stale.
Lovely food. Beautifully prepared and presented. I try to go to this restaurant each time I visit Brighton and am never disappointed. I do think the loos need a refurb though.
The food was not good at all! We expected a proper vegetarian food!
The dishes did not have a lot of flavor and I think that there are many other vegetarian places that do much tastier food for a fraction of the price.
Very friendly, professional and welcoming staff. Pleasant surroundings and decor. Tables not on top of each other so nice bit of privacy.
Food was excellent. Well presented and very tasty.
Wonderful lunch and service as always, food delicious thanks
Loved our experience to celebrate my 30th birthday, thank you for a special evening. We always make sure to book to come when we’re in Brighton. Would recommend to all veggies, vegans and meat eaters alike.
okay. not a big fan of the food, not enough options. probably wouldn't go back but the staff were nice and helpful.
the saving grace for this place was definitely the dessert. I had the burger for a main and found it dry and tasteless.
I've been going to Food for Friends for many years. Unfortunately I think it's changed hands since the last time I went a couple of years ago and its just not the same.
The food wasn't to the same standard, it was very mediocre, although the crispy Thai cauliflower was beautiful, and the banana bread desert was a triumph.
I don't think I'll be going back again, it's not particularly good value for money and having booked a table on a Sunday evening, the staff were waiting for us to leave at 9.15. What a shame!
Service generally slow.
Menu on website not matching in restaurant.
First choice drinks not available.
Asked for low-alcohol beer, brought zero alcohol beer.
Water on table often ran out - had to ask for more repeatedly.
Good food, but not really fine dining.
Overpriced. Nice location.
Good choice, large portions and very tasty. We all enjoyed our food, service was good but nothing special. Fairly busy when we visited but food didn’t take long at all.
My only complaint is the toilets, run down, messy and not particularly clean. Cupboard doors not in tact revealing messy under sink space. Definitely not checked/restocked despite the hourly check sheet.
Good service from a friendly team, and a pleasant ambience. However, I felt disappointed with the burger and thought it was much overpriced and over salty. The burger patty itself was tasty though. The oyster mushroom scallops were delicious but the portion was small. The tofu side was excellent.
I treated a vegetarian friend for her birthday. We shared small plates. It was quite difficult to find sufficient choice for her as she avoids spicy food. We had to request a spoon for serving twice. I was impressed by the birthday truffles with a candle.
Great lunch. Friendly welcome, although early we were shown to a nice table straight away. Very nice waiter, looked after us very well. Cocktails we had were delicious and food tasty and plenty of it. Have been here a few times over the last two years. Will definitely come again.
Fabulous food, very imaginative menu and great service. Would recommend to anyone visiting Brighton!!
Another fabulous meal at Food for Friends. It’s now become a place to visit every time I’m visiting Brighton. Delicious food, very generous portions, great atmosphere and staff. What more could you ask for? See you again soon FFF!
Quite simply the best meal I have ever eaten in a restaurant.
we will stick to Terre A Terre, better all round, the whole thing was very disappointing sadly
Amazing Valentines meal. Such delicious food and amazing service. Will be going back! Can’t fault anuthing
We have been to Food for Friends before and have always enjoyed ourselves there. As it was Valentines I thought it would be ideal to go here. There was a special Valentines cocktail available which we both tried, it was delicious. My wife had the olives to start while I had the Thai cauliflower. We both had the burger for our main. The food was delicious as usual and the service was very good. If you want to go for a reasonably priced delicious vegetarian meal then I can thoroughly recommend Food for Friends.
