Chicken kebab starter was not breast- slightly chewy/ rubbery bits of thigh? For main, chicken Banbu tempura was soaked in sauce which was too vinegary,so soggy not crispy. I had heard good things about the food so was very disappointed. My kids both had chicken katsu - they said it was not nearly as nice as Wagamama's katsu. The whole... More

Poor meal here last night. I've been before over the years but this time it felt lazy and jaded. The tempura was cooked in overly old oil and was deeply uninspiring. The miso soup was casually throw together - I've not had a worse miso soup in a Japanese restaurant ever. And it's not as though it's dirt cheap either.... More

A really lovely meal in Seven Dials . Had selection of sushi, noodle dishes, tofu & daikon salad, other tofu dishes - really lovely. Simple decor but a really lovely meal when visiting Brighton & just round the corner from where we were staying.

Found this little gem and went with a few friends. Tried various different things off of the menu and they were very catering to my celiac friends needs. Delicious food, prompt service and i would highly recommend, although we were lucky just walking in as it was busy, so would probably book

I dined her as a party of 19 for a hen-do in May 2016. We ate fresh delicious food, drank lovely drinks and were served by accommodating staff. What more could you ask for? Thank you.

Went for sushi but we're very disappointed. However if you're interested in some of their mains, they have a lot to offer. We tried the salmon teriyaki and were pleased with the fish- veg was very bad(looked like overdone frozen veg). Sushi selection was small and what we got was nothing special.

We visit Brighton 6 or so times a year and often choose Murasaki for high-quality, fresh, delicous and reasonably-priced Asian fare. The location, just off 7 Dials, is also advantageous. The staff are very courteous and the Murasaki Bento is a treat.

Excellent little Japanese restaurant. On our 3rd attempt at eating here we finally got to try it out. Wonderful dishes on the menu which were thoroughly enjoyed by myself and my boyfriend. The plum wine was a rather nice and different drink to try. A very nice setting but I imagine on a busy night it may feel a bit... More

This place used to be the best place Japanese restaurant in Brighton several years ago but unfortunately I will be staying well clear of this place now, overpriced for the food they produce and always short staffed. On my last visit I was given tempura vegetables which were very greasy and the chicken yakitori was a poor imitation of the... More
