One of my favourite restaurants in Brighton, every meal under £5 and can BYOB. always busy and you don't stay in there very long but it's always fab. The curries and dumplings are the best

I went here as a cheaper alternative to Wagamammas and it didn't disappoint. A lovely environment and awesome little restaurant. The menu is really nicely set out with a good range of choice, food was really nice and was very quick. The price is so good and will be coming back for sure.

Whilst the price is not particularly high, the quality of the meats is poor. Overcooked, everything in batter and with sugar to boot. Whilst marginally better than your standard Chinese resto, eating here wont do anything good for your health, and you may leave feeling like a bomb has been dropped in your stomach.

Been here many times, and often order favourites that I know and love. But I love to try more or different things from time to time! The Dumplings are always a winner! The food is very tasty, and cheap. The service is quick and it is the kind of place you will pop into for a quicker meal, or of... More

Stopped in here at the weekend for dinner . The food is very reasonably priced and was very tasty and the staff were friendly. We sat inside and paid a couple of pounds extra to bring in our own drinks and it had such a lovely atmosphere. I would definitely recommend the pumpkin curry, it was absolutely delicious.

Pompoko is great as a student- its cheap, delicious and fast! I always have the sweet and sour prawns with rice, and it is always delicious! They have an extensive menu, and food is cooked fast and service is efficient. Its cheap- around five pounds for a main dish, and offer a filling and tasty meal. The staff are usually... More

Doesn't look like much from the outside, or the inside but the food is great! Japanese street food at a good price! They are always busy which is a good sign but you don't have to wait for you food for very long. Authentic food, quick and clean, would definitely recommend.
