Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

It was a most delicious treat, we had a selection of mezze type dishes and enjoyed every single one. The falafels were moist and full of herbs and flavour, humous tasted nutty and wholesome , aubergine dish and salad was excellent, we had warm stuffed...vine leaves which were fragrant and melted in the mouth. And we had a very warm welcome and service. We will d definitely come back!More

Friendly service and delicious food. The food was excellent and surpassed my expectations. It was of a quality that you would get in a good London-based Middle Eastern restaurant, served here at cafe prices making it excellent value. The falafel, hummus, aubergine and vine leaves...were all outstanding.More

This was the best falafel i've had in a very long time. Someone recommended it to me as a good lunch spot and it did not disappoint in the slightest. Excellent food, lovely atmosphere, and run by a friendly bunch of people. I'll be back!

Well this was a find! Cancel anywhere else you’ve booked - like we did - and eat here. You won’t regret it. Great tasting home made style food at a ridiculously good price. You can pay stupid amounts more for utter rubbish - this is...the real dealMore

Second visit here. We had the basic falafel platter. Wow! Fantastic, best falafel in Brighton and very good value as a large meal. The staff are friendly and helpful. The toilets are spotless which is unusual in a cafe. Well done, we will be back.

Decent cheap eat. We wanted somewhere for a quick bite and not too pricey and this place ticked the boxes. Tasty food, hallumi fries were excellent.

Delicious food and large portions. There are loads of places to go and get lunch round here but we were delighted to have chosen this place. The portions are huge and we could have easily shared a plate between two of us. For some reason...none of us chose one of the many falafel dishes - something to try next time? Delightful friendly staff - next time we're in Brighton this will be on our list to re-visitMore

Crisp, moist, delicately flavoured and tender falafel. Lightly creamy tahine that coats the tongue without smothering your mouth in fat or acrid betterness. Smoothly textured houmous aromatic with garlic and lemon without scorching sulphur heat. And need I mention the chili sauce? Fruity, smoky, warming,...silken. A must.More
