“Exquisite stylish asian dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We were in Brighton for a weekend and found this gem tucked away .
Having travelled throughout south east Asia and my partner and friends also from Asia we were wowed by the standard of food attention to detail and knowledgable staff.
You walk in to a calm elegant dining room of peace and calm .
The furniture is stylish and classy. Water feature and Buddha' s are accented by high end glassware, napkins and cutlery. A varied fresh and authentic menu of Gujarati , Thai, Malaysian and Korean dishes are supported by high quality sushi and sashimi with the latter having their own chef.
Good quality wines and draft Kirin beer!
The toilets are modern features of Japanese zen and remind me of the mandarin oriental hotel chain but with a freshness of modern flair.
Exceptional food incredible atmosphere , 3 courses for 4 with drinks worked out at £25 each all in.
By far the best food in Brighton.
My only regret that everyone else will find this and I will not be able to get in.
Please don't tell anyone else about this.

Good evening,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of Rickshaw! The fact that you have travelled throughout South East Asia and can make such a fantastic comparison with our food means a lot! A lot of thought has gone in to the wine list and we can say that the Kirin beer is very popular!

We hope you will visit again soon and look forward to seeing you.

Kind regards,

The Rickshaw Team

“Great new addition to Brighton dining.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We ate here on Friday 25th July, the restaurant had recently opened and offers a selection of Asian food, ours was delicious and served in an original and contemporary style. The waiting staff were on form and went about their work with smiles and charm.
The restaurant is unusually spacious and comfortable, I love it when there is space between tables, on the upper floors there are further themed eating areas, the whole environment is stylishly designed and pleasing.
I wish them well and will definitely return.

Hi,

Thank you for your lovely review! We are glad you enjoyed the food, design and atmosphere at Rickshaw. A lot of dedication went in to the spacious design and we are glad this added something extra to your evening. The Chinese and Japanese themed rooms upstairs are excellent to book for large parties, as well as a more intimate dining experience.

We hope to see you again soon!

Kind regards,

“There on opening night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We were in Brighton for my wife's birthday weekend and we had been shopping in town on 12 July. We walked past this restaurant and it was their opening day. We were curious to see what it was like and the staff were very welcoming and showed us around. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and the ambience for romantic dinner is very good. The toilet rooms are nicely decorated and clean! It all looked very nice so we booked a table for the evening as it was a special weekend. We had a lovely table next to a window. It was a warm evening but we could open the windows next to us and look out onto the street. Our host was a lady called Adriana and she was extremely friendly and helpful. Our waiter was also very polite and friendly. Adriana was very attentive throughout the evening and we noticed she was friendly to all the other diners too. My wife has special dietary needs and Adriana was helpful with the menu making suggestions of dishes for her to have and checking with the chefs about the ingredients. This is always an important thing for us. The food was lovely, very tasty and fresh. The menu was varied and interesting. The food looked and tasted delicious! Our evening was made very special and we really appreciated the service. Well done to Adriana and all the team on your opening day! We wish the restaurant every success and would definitely return next time we are down in Brighton.
