Whether you fancy
good ol’ Spanish tapas, some lovely Thai tucker or the finest
Caribbean cuisine, there’s a restaurant in Brighton to please
your taste buds.
If it’s cheap but delicious international food you’re
looking for then check out the Nile House [map]
on Preston Street, a newly established Sudanese and African restaurant.
There's plenty of choice here for meat eaters and vegetarians alike
and most meals are reasonably priced, many under £5. However,
you will need to take your own alcohol as this eatery does not have
a drinks licence.
For Far Eastern cuisine take a trip out of the city centre to the
neighbouring town of Hove, where you’ll find some of the best
Thai and Indonesian restaurants around, including Aumthong Thai
and the Bali Brasserie.
Situated on Western Road, Aumthong Thau [map]
is hard to miss due to its eye catching bright blue exterior.
Here you’ll find a good selection of seafood and meat dishes
along with noodles, curries and vegetarian options. There’s
also a good choice of desserts, if you’ve left room for one!
Bali Brasserie [map]
is hidden underneath a block of apartments on Kingsway Court but
it’s well worth taking the trouble to locate. This large eatery
comes complete with staff dressed in traditional costume and an
authentic menu of Thai and Indonesian dishes.
There is also a whole spectrum of Chinese restaurants in and around
Brighton city centre, but if you’re looking for something
a little more exotic why not opt for a little Jamaican tucker? The
Tamarind Tree Café [map]
on Queens Road is Brighton's only Caribbean restaurant, which
serves Jamaican food made with the finest traditional ingredients.
With reggae music playing in the background, wonderful decor and
cheerful staff, this is a place where you can really chill out and
have a laugh with your mates. This restaurant does not serve alcohol
so you’ll have to take your own.
Moving swiftly on to Mediterranean cuisine, the Ipanema [map]
in Hove offers a menu of Greek, Spanish and Italian food on a warm
and cosy atmosphere. It’s a great place to enjoy a birthday
celebration or special occasion with friends and family as the staff
don’t mind at all if you want to join in with the live music!
For French cuisine with a difference pay a visit to Crepe Dentelle
on Preston Street, a relatively new kid on the block but quickly
becoming a firm favourite. The restaurant is candlelight with French
music playing in the background, and a menu of frogs’ legs
and traditional crepes that together create a somewhat romantic
Other international restaurants worth a look while you’re
in Brighton include Genghis Khan's Mongolian Barbecue [map],
where your meal is cooked before your very eyes and Fountain
which serves Lebanese and Persian cuisine.
There is also a good offering of Spanish, Mexican, American and
Indian restaurants in the city centre and out towards Hove.
