I wanted to go here for a long time and finally went the other day with my sister - who has been vegetarian for over 30 years and never been to a veggie restaurant! The food was outstanding and great service too. I will definitely go back. We also went with non-veggies who said they were really impressed and would... More

I return to Food For Friends as often as I can! The food is AMAZING - a real treat both for the palate & the eyes, but what impressed me even more than that is the way in which each customer is treated as important, whether they are there on their own or as part of a group of six.... More

I went with my partner and his Mum who wanted to treat us to lunch as we had just moved house. She is a vegetarian and we are often going to places that are meat-centric so it was such a pleasure to be able to go somewhere where the vegetarian was just as happy as the two meat eaters as... More

This restaurant is one of our favourites, as non vegetarians this is quite an achievement. The food is outstanding with taste sensations the likes of which we very rarely have the fortune to experience. The only down side is the fact that it is a 3 hour drive from home. Please open another one in the West Country!

Food for Friends has been a favourite of mine for a while, and I always eat there when I'm in Brighton. They have a variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes which makes eating out much more enjoyable for those who don't eat meat, and a nice change for those who do. The food is amazing (I even bought the cookbook),... More

The place was packed on a Saturday afternoon but the staff (with the exception of the lady front of house who was very snappy with the staff!) were amazing. Food was lovely - small tapas type plates all of which we had were lovely - though the deep friend aubergines were a bit greasy. Nice wine, great atmosphere...would definitely return.

On a wet Monday in Niovember we decided on the spur of the moment to go to Brighton for a walk by the sea. In the event the weather was so bad we headed to Food for Friends one of our favorite restaurants and the only veggie place we ever visit. We hadn't booked (it was monday lunch-time) and even...

We came across this place by chance on a weekend in Brighton. If you want to eat 5pm-8pm Thursday, Friday or Saturday you must book.I have been a veggie for many years and it was a pleasure to eat where veggie is not the option but the priority. The food was very, very tasty in pleasant surroundings and friendly service.... More
