I actually use Pompoko a lot as it's very close to one of the places I work, 2 things that make you realise this is a good place: 1, there is almost always a queue for both takeaway and for tables, 2, Lots of Japanese people eat there.
The food is always exceptional and portions aren't skimpy, I heartily recommend the Miso Soup and also the Tofu Chilli Don.

BYOB, cheap and yummy food, perfect before a night out with friends. All the dumplings are really nice and fresh so you dont feel horrible and greedy after like with some asian food

A trip to Brighton is not complete without a visit to Pompoko - my husband and I are regular customers and absolutely LOVE eating there!

The place is very cosy and you may often find yourself sharing a table with complete strangers, which I think makes it all the more interesting - even in the event of having to wait for a table, it's still worth it! The staff have always been friendly and fast with their service - I'm usually in awe of how fast they get such an amazing meal to your table in no time flat.

The food is consistently awesome - always fresh, always fast and always delicious! Fantastic value with great portions and a wide range of options, we never find ourselves wanting for choice. I never leave without having the takoyaki and highly recommend giving it a try!

Not the place for a romantic dinner to linger over as basic decor and very busy but cosy atmosphere and friendly staff.Food is well presented and good with masses of choice for both veggies and meat eaters alike!!no alcohol but you can byo .great to. Grab something quick and tasty if you are short of time and money!!
