Description: Voted 'Best Restaurant' in the Brighton Foodie Awards 2012Good food Guide 2013Food for Friends restaurant in Brighton has been in the vanguard of vegetarian cuisine for more than twenty five years. Set in The Lanes, Brighton’s most happening district, Food for Friends has slowly spread over three shop fronts, developing a labyrinth of brightly lit, modern dining rooms kitted out with stylish minimalism, some overlooking the bustling lanes outside. Cuisine from around the globe is created using predominantly local, organic ingredients, some delivered by bike. Vegans and those with food allergies and intolerances are well cared for here. Wines are organic and mainly vegan, coffee is fairtrade, and an irresistible afternoon tea is served.

Quite pricey and it can be impossible to get a table, but the food and service cannot be faulted. Original vegetarian food that even non-veggies get excited about.

Catering for vegetarians and meat eaters including one coeliac is always a challenge. Getting food that everyone enjoys even more so . Hurrah then for FFF. No complaints at all in terms of quality, portion size, variety of dishes and prices weren't over the top either. No hassle from staff to clear table at end which makes a change from some places. Will be back.

Amazing food, excellent service, brilliant cocktails. There's an adorable children's menu and they make regular updates to their menu to keep it fresh. Anyone who doesn't order the chocolate fondant and an expresso martini is a fool!

When I was a student back in the 90s, Food for Friends was very much Brighton's stodgy, whole-food veggie diner. The main emphasis was on large quantities of healthy food and it was full of people in sandals and curious jumpers eating pieces of roof insulation.

Visiting again in June 2013, I was pleased to discover it's changed. The food was delicious; sophisticated and imaginative without straying as far as pretentious. I had Stilton arancini with a rocket salad which was very good and the children's menu was one of the best I've ever seen.

I'll definitely go back.
