A backpackers delight!! Excellent Food, cheap prices!! Jan 06, 2011
Being from Brighton I felt it my duty to share with you all the little hidden Gem that is Pomoko! The residents of Brighton would consider it to be a well kept secret and all passing through who have been there wouldn’t hesitate in passing the location of it on and regale to all that this quaint Japanese restaurant, is without a doubt the best in Brighton.

Fir starters the food is amazing, utterly delicious and widely varied. Offering delights such as Veg or meat Noodle Stir Fry’s, Miso Soup to Tofu Chilli Don it really does offer a great menu that will leave you full and satisfied, with the name Pompoko ingrained in your mind for all time.

The great and best thing about this restaurant is that is soooooooooooo cheap. For £5 you can get a large dish of your choice (pretty much) with rice. The extra nibbles like spring roles and Ebi fried prawns are a couple of pound extra and are well worth it (yummy)!!! For £10 per person you can eat like kings for night, leaving the restaurant feeling smug and satisfied that your travel budget has no been abused.

You can also bring in your own drinks including alcohol so it’s a great place to drink and eat with friends and newly formed mates on the road for a fraction of the pub price sin the UK. This really is a bonus as not many places in the UK allow this.

The service is extremely friendly, efficient and fast too, you’ll easily be served within 30 of ordering if not before. It does get really busy in there but is worth the hustle and bustle and juggling to get a seat, which is situated either outside, downstairs on their upstairs section which is not visible from the road. It's good to know too, if the bustle isnt for you they do take away!!!

Overall, I would say if your visiting Brighton at some point do not miss the chance to have a really memorable meal and experience at Pompoko. It gets 5 stars from me!!!

This is so true! Pompoko is one of the best places to eat in Brighton. Being a student too as you say, it makes a small impact to your wallet yet the food is still good - and it is served quickly, I don't think I've ever waited longer than 10 minutes at most.

The only downside to this restaurant is that some evenings between 6-7 it can get very busy, so much so that people queue up to go in. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the pre theatre people as the theatre is just across the road, but for me, it gives me even more reason to go. If people are happy to queue, you know the food is going to be good.

Definitely recommend
