Out with my parents and we decided that we fancied a cooked brunch for a change. We thought we'd pop in here as it looked quite nice, was quiet (will get to that later) and actually had a full veggie breakfast option. It was really quiet...maybe this should have been a giveaway...but we were hungry so in we went. Getting... More

I made a booking to come here as i had been in the past and had great food. We walked in and it was empty. The floor is filthy like a well used nightclub and the whole place looks dirty. After being ignored for 5 minutes we left and went to a great Greek Restaurant which was packed just up... More

This is the dirtiest restaurant I have been in for many years! Your feet stick the the floor, thick dust on skirting boards and the toilets-yuk! No soap, hand dryer not working, the doors look as though a dog has come in from a muddy field and shaken itself all over them- and whatever you do don't look up unless... More

I felt compelled to leave a review in the hope that the owner might pick it up and realise the consistently slack service by staff that oscillate from being too busy and under-resourced to too pre-occupied elsewhere - but it feels previous reviews concur with this already. Dear owner - get a grip! - you've got a good place here,... More

I last visited HK several times in 2012/13 with a friend who used to live in the neighbourhood and have always enjoyed the ambience and food. Called in yesterday, it was Saturday night and the place was nearly empty???? We stood around like lemons whilst the bar staff chatted amongst themselves and waiting staff ignored us, should have left then... More

I went to Hove kitchen on a Sunday afternoon at 3pm. It was not crowded inside and we (my son and I) were able to find a table. The service was quite quick but wrong drinks were brought. I ordered a roast as that was all that was available - the slow roast belly of pork roast was average. While... More

When this restaurant opened, I would've rated it as one of the best in Brighton. The food was delicious, the service outstanding and the choice of local food-brilliant. Therefore, I couldn't have been more disappointed on Friday night when I took a visiting friend to eat there. Having raved about the quality and atmosphere, I was really disappointed to find... More

I had a mediocre brunch here today. The Full English was ok but certainly nothing special. I made the mistake of going to the toilet: the two toilets did not flush and, without going into detail, they were disgusting. I was there very early on Sunday, so have to assume that it had been like that since the day before.... More

Don't offer table service if you can't handle it. Could have spend hundreds today but instead, had one and left. Once again, management to blame. Although apathetic staff standing around chatting doesn't help... Sort yourselves out.

Waitress split a glass of red wine over my friend, we were not given any money off the bill. The food is overpriced and not that great. Lots of better options very close by.
