    ‘Chef choice’ was a very good decision, we would recomand for the experience. The restaurant is rated as one of the best in Brighton, therefore our expectations were higher. The food was too oily for our taste. Good ration qualty - price. Very nice atmosphere, good service.

    Friendly staff who care about your experience. The food is excellent, follow the advice of staff and you’ll get the right mix and quantity of dishes. Had a nice night out, I’d suggest the atrium/conservatory area is the best place to sit.

    The small plates and coctails were delicious and novel. We were upstairs and experience a bit spoilt by the low ceiling accoustics. Will def go again soon and will ask for music to be turned down low as lots of raised voices made conversation difficult.

    We really did not enjoy the food here. The combinations did not work for us at all, within each dish or together side by side. If you are still going, definitely sit inside, not in the conservatory which is cold, has no atmosphere and I think, (possibly wrongly), gets much poorer service attention.

    Absolutely the best meal out I’ve had in years. Every dish (small plates which are actually medium!) was delicious. We were practically kicking our plates. Good wine list too. Service was spot on with lovely friendly staff who were not intrusive. The space is very lovely too. Cannot recommend highly enough as not our favourite go to vegan restaurant in Brighton

    Fabulous food, delicious cocktails and friendly and polite staff. It was a shame the kitchen was overloaded that night and we had to wait a long time for small plates, but they were worth it when they arrived and the staff were really good at keeping us informed and apologising for the delay.

    We had the set lunch menu, which was delicious and good value. The service was good and the conservatory we sat in was a really nice setting for our meal. The background music was perfect for an overall enjoyable experience. We will return.

    Great service, amazing cocktails. Food was good overall but there were just a couple dishes that didn't pack much of a punch when it came to flavour. Order the red hot chilli pepper cocktail. One of the best I've had in a long time

    It was really delicious, but a little overpriced for essentially veggies with a twist , there was barely any protein source and after spending £180 for 4 people (including 1 bottle Of wine) we were all hungry again a few hours later

    I love the Roundhill pub & their cafe at the Needlemakers so I wanted to love Kokedama. The food was nice but we left hungry. We asked how many plates to order and were told 2-3 per person so we ordered 5 plus bread but this was about half as much food as we'd have liked. Even if the portions were bigger it still wouldn't have been satisfying because of the type of food it was. It was basically a series of vegetable side dishes. If they were served alongside a proper main course I'd be raving about how great the food was but a lot of the plates are a single type of vegetable plus some other flavours. Nice but not a meal even when you pair a few plates together. Maybe we missed out on some better plates that would have tied it together but it's hard to know what you're getting based from the menu descriptions and our server didn't try to steer us differently. I'm really sorry to give this feedback because I wanted to love it but I can't recommend it. I hope the restaurant does well and that the menu is developed further and maybe we'll try again in future.
