Innovative menu all sourced locally and merits a Michelin star !
Great no waste ethos. All items are gluten free - a real bonus for me.
Fresh and delicious however a tad pricey.
It was my first visit to Kindling and it was a wonderful surprise to walk into such a fantastic restaurant.
The staff from the very beginning were excellent and recommended some great dishes.
The desire is excellent and a lovely place to spend an evening.
The only disappointment fir me was the sexy cabbage. It was not as quite as sexy as I’d hoped it was a little to tart in taste but that’s just my view otherwise the food was lovely.
Thank you so much and I will be back soon I had a lovely evening.
One of the best meals I’ve had in Brighton for a while
This is my new favourite restaurant!! Seriously good food, that I can’t stop thinking about.
I mentioned that it was our anniversary and we were spoilt with extra dishes and being seated by the chefs (who are awesome).
Only improvement would be to turn the lights down a little!
Thank you for such a wonderful evening
Simply the best.
I cannot rave about this place enough, it's one of those places we'll not forget.
On arrival we sat around the kitchen area, and from the offset the service, atmosphere and food were fantastic. Holly, Toby and Ben were the friendliest people, and we got to experience a really intimate side as we could see them preparing everything. The wine was exquisite, the food unbelievable, and this was possibly the best dining out experience we've ever had...
Honestly, this restaurant is incredible. The food was phenomenal (and I’m a food snob!), the service was great and the atmosphere was equally professional and homely. I would definitely go back here again the next time I’m in Brighton.
The food here is ridiculously good! it is small plates of really incredibly tasting food. All locally sourced, fresh, clean, gluten free naturally (it's the exception they use something contain gluten) and just wonderful! We had ex-dairy cow steak which was INCREDIBLE!, pork, fish, the best Hispi cabbage I have ever eaten....the list goes on. The flavours are so cleverly put together. Holly and Toby are a great team. They know what food is brilliant together and they know how to make it sing! Beautiful place and an incredible experience...incredible seems to be the word of the moment - but others fail me, honestly brilliant!
Kindling is always on point and one of our go to places as locals. Short but excellent menu and outstanding cooking and service. Bit quiet on Sunday lunchtime but that didn’t bother us. Think they were rushed off their feet on Saturday eve and over Eat out to Help out.
Great food great service. Would return, fantastic all round dining experience.
Food was nice but menus was very limited with just 4 starters and 4 main courses to choose from, and 3 of the starters were fish.
Lacking in ambience and the place felt a bit cold.
No complaints about the quality of the food or the service, just not fantastic experience overall.
Incredible food. Felt full but light after and I can still taste the steak dish days later - it really was memorable. Serving the quality of food that would be 100 pounds a head in London but came in at 50 with wine and a cocktail. An amazing find.
Lovely food, friendly attentive service. Just a shame the chairs weren’t more comfortable!
Excellent meal augmented by sitting at the bar and having a wonderful interaction with the two head chefs. Lovely wine too
Booked this to try try a new restaurant and what an amazing find! The food is stunning, incredible flavours, wonderful combinations and very reasonably priced. Exceeds some of the top “foodie” restaurants in London.
Excellent meal - well thought out, constructed and delicious food. Lovely non alcoholic selection and staff were super friendly. Highly recommended and look forward to going back!
We dined at kindling on the 31st August and despite it being what I'd imagine to have been a very busy bank holiday service, our dinner at Kindling was faultless. The food was absolutely stunning (Katie being a veggie was also blown away by her food) whilst being complemented with brilliant, professional and easy going front of house staff. Would highly recommend booking at Kindling to anyone before it becomes one of Brighton's hot spots!
Amazing quality food!! Would definitely recommend and go back for a special occasion
The food in this place was fabulous, kindling should be in London, every mouthful was an explosion of different flavours and textures.The service was good and both waiter and chefs very helpful. I would highly recommend Kindling and only wish I lived nearer
A fantastic experience. From the moment we were greeted at the door, to the advice on food and wine, to the food itself- the whole evening was fabulous. Not huge portion sizes (fine for me), so worth adding sides if you like bigger portions. Simple, clean decor, lovely ambience and beautifully presented food with multiple layers of flavour. Definitely will be back.
Absolutely delicious! Great to have a new high quality restaurant in Brighton!
Its a must to visit this restaurant...we sat at the bar and was able to observe the chiefs ...we thoroughly enjoyed our food...great to look at as well as get...the staff were very attentive
If ever we visit Brighton again we will definitely visit
I had high expectations since Kindling is a new venture by the Food For Friends team. My expectations were exceeded. Fantastic smokey food and flavours with excellent knowledgeable service. We had a pork chop and ricotta gnudi, which were both perfect proving they can do both meat and vegetarian well.
Delicious food and wonderful service. A great experience, we’ll be back!
First visit and great food. Creative trout starter and amazing 500g Sirloin off the specials board. Will definitely be back!
Beautiful food, well presented. Most dishes were comparable with Michelin star restaurants. Felt safe but not “fenced in “ as so many restaurants do nowadays. Highly recommend.
Lovely meal, friendly staff, recommended. Quality ingredients, beautifully cooked.
The service from BEN was fantastic. explained the foods in detail and was always there straight away when we needed him. The food is amazing and I would recommend to anyone!
Amazing food and service
Despite the short time they have been open Kindling has quickly made its way to my top restaurants in Brighton.
Lovely staff and ever changing menu!
A great addition to the restaurant choice in Brighton. Innovative menu well executed and served with style .Loved the "amuse- bouche" and "petit fours" ,nice touches Do not really like dogs in the dining -room ,no matter how well behaved ,otherwise faultless!
Food was fantastic, all of the waiting staff were really friendly and fun. The lovely touch on the end with the anniversary drawn in chocolate was a nice surprise. Also being in eat out to help out made what I think is already a great value fine dining experience even more easy on the pocket. Would hurry back again in an instant!
Amazing new find in Brighton! Fresh local produce put together in new ways. Lovely service and you can see it all being made in front of your eyes at the open kitchen. Nice for dates and special occasions. We’ll definitely be back to try out their changing menu and specials.
Fabulous evening meal at Kindling. Our first time there and the food and service were great. Delicious charcuterie board and squash and ricotta to start. And exquisite sea bass and chicken main courses, but the star was the broccoli side! Divine! We haven’t been out since before lockdown and it was so lovely to have a romantic evening out, which felt really special.
The sea bream was an amazing main course dish while the scallop ceviche was a fantastic starter.
Wonderful food wine and service as usual!
Great food - great location. This was our first time at Kindling and would definitely recommend
Food was delicious, the staff were friendly & attentive, we had a fantastic time!
Really great restaurant with interesting but simple menu. One of our group was gluten free and she could still have anything on the menu which is rare. The staff were really welcoming and really clued up on both the food and wine. Would definitely recommend.
