One of Brighton's gems! With hundreds of eateries in the town, Food For Friends is worth a visit (or three!). I have only been twice (sadly, as I have now moved abroad) but both visits have exceeded my expectations. On my first visit during lunchtime I ordered a pink lemonade and a fig and ricotta salad with a sweet dressing.... More

Visited again last Sunday and chose the Sunday roast. A sweet potato with cheese wrap on a bed of red cabbage with roasted veg, potatoes, Yorkshire pud and gravy. Huge portion and so delicious. My husband and I are not vegetarian but love the range and flavours of the dishes served here. Excellent service and atmosphere.

This restaurant holds a firm place as mine & my partners most favourite restaurant, ever. I was recommended to go by a friend, so as a surprise I booked a table for myself and my partner for one of our anniversary celebrations. The first time we tucked into one of FFF's meals, we were overwhelmed! We couldn't quite understand a)... More

This restaurant needs more FF's in its title/name like "Fantastic and Fabulous". My husband and I don't live in the UK but once a year we travel to Brighton so we can eat in Food for Friends. This is our 10th year, we love it that much, do I need to say more! Thank you for existing and for creating... More

I visited the restaurant for a lunch with a friend. We had lots of little dishes to share. Everything was delicious, served quickly and with a smile. Even if you´re not a vegetarian, it´s a great place to try variety of food.

If you enjoy vegetarian food this restaurant is a must. My partner and I both had the coconut curry and it was exquisite. It was cooked to perfection. The service and ambiance at the restaurant were just right. Very reasonable prices too.

Will not be visiting again, cant even remember what we ordered. Some of it was good, too much flowery description and not enough about what you get. What we got was a long wait for cold food and overcharged for wine. Which was eventually sorted.
