Was relatively busy, staff rushing about and a bit disorganised. Only brought half the drinks order. sat there quite a while waiting to give food order - back to disorganised. Other half of drinks arrived - wrong order. eventually got it right - a bottle of wine. Food ok - nothing special. Came to the bill which my gut instinct... More

I have have been a regular customer at this restaurant over the past four years. On each occasion the food and service have been second to none. Over the years I have introduced this restaurant to friends and colleagues. All have commented positively on Pavels excellence.

The restaurant was very busy we didn't book but only waited a couple of minutes and we had a table. As it was busy we waited quite a while for our meals but it was worth it lovely food. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend it.

What an awful experience! Having been recommended by locals to visit this restaurant on an overnight stay in Brighton, we visited but to our severe disappointment and we were treated very badly by the staff. Being a vegtarian, since birth, for religious and cultural reasons, I do not expect to find a large piece of chicken in my vegetarian main... More

Loved Pavels. Service was excellent, food was delicious and the atmosphere was terrific. We booked a table, it was a Friday night and really busy. We would definitely recommend a visit if you are ever in KempTown.

I have eaten in many Indian Restaurants and tried many Indian Takeaways and as yet not one comes close to the excellent quality and as tasty as Pavel in Brighton. Brilliant service both in the restaurant and delivery.

Chicken Vindaloo was amazing, and the poppadoms were delicious. Ate there late, but didn't feel rushed at all.

Had a dansak and a Ceylon both Chicken. The meat was so over cooked and dry very unpleasant to eat. The sauces were really nice though but the chicken didn't taste of anything. They must pour the sauce over already cooked meat Also the salad was hotter than the naan bread.
