Here are our picks of the best way to taste the world in Brighton.
The Blue Man: Walk through the doors of this authentic North African restaurant and the amazing aromas from the kitchen make your mouth water. This cosy little restaurant gives you a sense of Tunisia or Morocco with artisan crafts decorating the walls and a North African feel inside. Beautifully spiced dishes (not too hot) include tajines, couscous and the amazing merguez sausages.
Smokey’s Restaurant: Step quite literally from the British Seafront in to the heart of the United States. Smokey’s is a classic American Restaurant serving up mouth watering favourites found in the roadside diners across the USA. Beautifully cooked food with real Smokey flavours and generous portions all served in a vintage American styled restaurant opposite the West Pier.
Coast To Coast: From the US memorabilia on the walls to the American rock and Motown sounds, Coast To Coast on Brighton Marina is a real slice of the US. Using quality ingredients they serve up a mix of real authentic American classics which are delicious and a good size, served with a smile all in an authentic atmosphere.
Bom-Bane’s: Tucked away in fashionable Kemptown, this hidden gem epitomises the spirit of Brighton personified; quirky, wacky and totally entertaining. Serving up great, home cooked Belgium style food all served with a smile and a song.
Rodizios Preto: This is a unique Brazilian dining experience, offering over 15 cuts of meat, slow cooked over a traditional Churrascaria adding real depth of flavour. The sizzling skewers are then carved at your table and served with traditional Brazilian side dishes such as Feijoada a dish made with beans and pork. A real treat for a meat lover!
China China: This may not be the fanciest of the many Chinese restaurants in Brighton but this no thrills, no fuss, restaurant is certainly highly regarded and offers consistently good food at very reasonable prices. You know you’ve found the right place when most of the tables are filled by nationals of that country.
Estia: Using old family recipes the chefs at Estia bring the taste of Cyprus to your plate in Brighton, all home cooked using fresh local produce. From the truly excellent Meze to delicious stifado and klefiko there is a vast selection of authentic dishes on offer and they even have Keo beer.
There are simply far too many exceptional restaurants in Brighton serving English/British food to pick out the best. From perfect steaks at The Coal Shed, to gastro pubs such as the Jolly Poacher and fine dining restaurants like Graze and Sams of Brighton - there is a mouth watering choice. Not to mention the great British classic fish n chips where again you are spoiled for choice.

Kambi’s: Priding themselves on quality and taste, Kambis is possibly the best Lebanese restaurant in Brighton with fantastic Mezze and Shawarma dishes. With a superb choice for vegetarian, vegans and meat eaters there’s something for everyone. Quick, delicious food served by friendly staff and as it’s a BYO, it’s excellent value.
Bali Brasserie: Although the decor inside is similar in style to that of an 1980’s cruise ship, it’s actually quite quirky and the Bali Brasserie serves up mouth watering Malaysian cuisine with contrasting flavours of sweet, sour and spices which jet you off to tropical climates.
La Choza: La Choza is Brighton’s first authentic Mexican restaurant. Serving real, authentic Mexican street food, it’s real must if you want something healthy while giving your senses a real treat.
