The food was delicious and the rice perfect, cannot fault this place and it was some of the best food for the value. This place really isn't for larger parties but groups of 4-5 can easily be accommodated. Also they do takeaway collection. Dishes are around £5 and very filling. Service was extremely fast and very polite. Went here on... More

I went here for the first time recently at around 3pm and had no trouble getting a table. There is a very quick turnover which is good however it feels rather rushed as many people come in to order takeaways so isn't really a place to leisurely eat in for too long. The food came very soon after we ordered... More

This restaurant is great value for money. The food is good for the price, nothing outstanding, small restaurant with crowded seating but its all about atmosphere, and this place has it. So don't expect the best Japanese food, but its worth a visit. Its a BYO as well, so don't expect to buy alcohol here.

It costs about a fiver a bowl, it's full of rubbish and sugar and everything bad for you but it tastes good and the staff are usually nice and helpful.

I used to really like Pompoko, it's always quick and cheap, food quality is nothing to shout about but nice enough most of the time. It's a bit hit and miss, today I went there for lunch and I was looking forward to a beef rice bowl but unfortunately today was a miss day, the beef was very chewy, the... More

This restaurant come highly recommended right across Brighton, and with it's central location you have no excuse to not go when you visit. It is small and gets very busy but the food is out quickly and is delicious.
