I love this restaurant for fast, tasty Japanese food at great prices! You wouldn't want to linger long, as someone will be vying for your table - that's how they keep it so cheap in this central Brighton location. Great for the Dome, popping out from the library for a tasty nutricious & healthy meal; great after yoga, or whilst browsing the Lanes. Let's hear it for Pom Poko!

Pom Poko offers the best value Japanese food in Brighton.

I've been loads of times and the service is always great. Never long to wait and the food is yummy. They have quite an extensive menu for what it is. It's very popular though so when you go you might have a wait if it's a weekend. That should show you it's worth it. Turn around is quite quick though. Definitely worth a visit.

Pompoko is quite small but if there is only two of you going there is usually somewhere to sit straight away. It's like a Japanese cafe as opposed to a restaurant.

The food is soo cheap, big portions and good value. My boyfriend and I always get one dish each which comes with rice for £4.50 and a drink £1 each. So total cost- £11. sometimes we get an extra portion of noddles to share but never finish them because it's so filling! This is only like £4

£15 for two people to eat including drinks for some great Japanese is not bad at all. They only take cash and you pay at the tils which is great if your going with loads of friends and want to pay separately.

I've eaten here couple of times and loved it every single time. The food was great even the spicy one :) The place is a bit small but they serve food really fast so it's not a problem if you have to wait a bit. It's not expensive and portions are huge.

We often go here after work or for saturday lunch. It is very good value, filling and tastes just like being in Tokyo. Love the grilled eel on rice about £6.50. Filled with students, artists and everyone else.
