Lovely restaurant and good food. The service is quie slow. Would make a difference if the wait time was shorter
Lovely ambience and delicious food. I wish the affogato was that big in all resteraunts everywhere! Will definitely come again to try the burger.
Far too much barbequed tasting food on a small menu -
The tofu starter was murdered / thats hard to do!
In the main, vegaterians do not like their food to tast like cooked meat products
The steamed green vegatables was a hit even tough a bit over salted
Good just took for ever to come - bread over an hour. Odd excuses but clearly mains had been sitting for ages cos was dry a d cold. Manager great at attending to us but the food prep was so bad - compared to great experiences before.
The food was so good and good value. We really enjoyed ourselves, and would definitely recommend.
Been eating here over the decades whenever we visit Brighton and the food keeps on getting better! Superbly tasty and very well presented, modern vege cuisine. Helpful, pleasant staff. Lovely atmosphere.
Friendly service, good ambiance. A good choice of food which was prepared quickly and tasted delicious! Used to go here in the 80’s and it never disappoints. Will be back .
Fantastic food - huge portions. Very friendly service and good vibe.
Good food for vegans. Wine pricey. Friendly service. Noisy and too hot.
It is very loud in the restaurant & I was disappointed with the quality of food. The cauliflower florets were so heavily coated & fried you couldn’t hardly find the cauliflower. Not healthy for sure!
Lovely food, especially the sweetcorn ribs. We felt rushed to leave at end because they needed the table.
Never fails to provide fantastic food. Great service, the menu doesn't do justice to the meal that is served because the meal is much much better. Go for something you wouldn't normally try and you will be surprised.
Really enjoyable evening, good food and staff. Will be back!
Quite a limited menu. Not quite the wonderful choice we’ve had before. Food was still tasty. A little bit hasty clearing plates.
Always amazing, we have been many times and will continue to in the future. Perfect for pre theatre and date night.
The food was as good as normal (excellent) but for the first time ever was let down by the service. The waiter was completely overrun and as such the dishes took an age to arrive. The restaurant wasn’t especially full, so this was a let down. The waiter himself was good and kept up a professional front but could have done with at least 1 more colleague.
One other point, can you bring back the Sunday roasts!
We are BIG FANS of FFF & Botanique - but this visit was a bit dissapointing ??? The waitress was lovely and q. helpful but we ended up paying another 10% on our bill as we asked if it was inc. in the Bill and she said no - but afterwards we looked at the Bill and it had been inc. - I don't think it was deliberate and so partly our fault as we should have studied the bill more closely before we left. Our main dissapointment was the food - which we've always adored - two of our starters had way too much batter round Halloumi Sticks and Thai Cauliflower- which is a fairly recent change and my main Frittata said Spinach but got potato in a pea puree instead = Lots of carbs & fat. We eat here as its A)Vegetarian B) That its healthy. Please can you return to the healthy less deep fried ------please.
I enjoy it every single time and it’s the only place I come for dinner when I come to Brighton as it’s so good. Thank you for the lovely Birthday plate!
Really enjoyed our meal - lots of atmosphere and a great menu! The staff were lovely!
Food For Friends is a favourite. Didn’t disappoint. Food was delicious, chilled vibe, service is friendly, slight wait at the beginning of the evening to get a first round of drinks in, otherwise all good. Lovely to be able to bring a vegetarian friend to the restaurant for a truly delicious meal
Always like the ambience of food for friends and did not disappoint. Service was not intrusive but attentive
Mary/Susan were great! Food and service was unreal
The best restaurant ever! Food was amazing, stuff so nice and helpful. Best experience
I was really excited to finally try Foods for Friends with my partner. The wine and the starters were amazing, service was really good too. My disappointment though was on my mains, I had pumpkin risotto, and as soon as it got to my plate all I could smell was onions. Because of too many onions I couldn’t taste the pumpkin, I could only taste the onions.
Great service, the waiter was wonderful and very attentive. My mail meal Spinach, pea & leek chickpea frittata was superb but my started Bao bun felt cold and bland. It needed some spice. The quality of food is not bad just found it bit overpriced. However they did came with a surprise birthday sliced cake for my partner which he loved it.
Incredible food, fast service and a lovely atmosphere
The food was delicious and the service was delightful too
Lovely food, great service and they provided a beautiful birthday cake for my wife at very short notice.
The service was superb! The menu was very limited, possibly due to Covid restrictions, staffing issues or supply? It was not how we remembered previous visit; so, we will not return soon.
A delicious vegan supper. Menu was interesting and varied and when the food arrived it was delicious and beautifully presented.
Sweet corn ribs were amazing!
Excellent service, very good food, nice ambience.
Wonderful meal and especially the cauliflower small plate which was so good!!
Very friendly and helpful staff also so always a pleasure to eat here
Great vegetarian and vegan food. Fantastic Margaritas too. Not the cheapest restaurant in town but very good.food and service in a nice setting in the lanes.
Excellent vegetarian food which will also please non vegetarians and anyone who likes imaginative food.
I've lived in Brighton for over a decade and this was possibly the best meal I've ever had in this town. Insanely good. We wanted the recipe for everything we ate. Fantastic waitresses who smiled and knew about the food they were serving and went above and beyond to make us comfortable. A memorable night out. Thank you!
Lovely food, good choice, substantial portions, delightful service, good value.
Beautiful atmosphere and great service. We found the food quite salty and dry which was a shame. The food didn’t have a great deal of flavour, a bit disappointing really.
Had a farewell dinner with 3 colleagues. Food was delicious - as shown by the empty plates and lots of compliments to the staff and chefs. Definitely recommend Food for Friends, in fact I'm having another farewell dinner with family on Sunday, at Food for Friends' new restaurant "Botanique" in Hove!
I had a lovely meal for my birthday. Food was very tasty. Not very much variety for a main course if you didn't want a small plate. Lots of salads! Small plates were larger than I expected perfect for sharing if you ordered a couple.
Ordered two starters and two mains and was delighted with every choice.
Friendly staff, lovely ambience, comfortable chairs (something you expect but don’t always get!) and thought provoking food that I now want to try and copy.
We will definitely come again.
