The pokey atmosphere in no way reflects the quality of food churned out by this place. It is quick, cheap and really tasty. There's a lot to choose from and the pictorial menu certainly helps with decision making.

Visited this place on the basis of the rave reviews on trip advisor. We weren't disappointed. Food's great and terrific value. BYO booze and paying in cash downstairs when you order tell you you're in a cafe, but the food knocks spots off some of Brighton's fancier , more expensive, Japanese rivals.
It feels like a proper authentic experience, we went because of the reviews, I hope you do too.

This place is Brighton's best kept secret to Japanese cuisine From the outside it looks like a typical backpacker hang out, in need of a little tender love and care and a far cry from silver service dining. However inside, you will find Pompoko filled with travelers, students and groups of people of all ages all chowing down on some tasty delight or two! The great thing about this place is that's it cheap, for around £5 to £10 you will be full, satisfied and raving about this truly authentic Japanese treasure! Truly scrumptious!

Wow!!! Definitely not what you'd expect. Would recommend this place to anyone/everyone. Have driven past it countless times and have never noticed it until a friend took me there. Very busy little packed restaurant. For the table we had: Spring Rolls, BBQ Spare Ribs, Ebi & Tempura Prawns and Gyoza Dumplings (my personal favourite). I then had the best ever Pork stir-fried noodles (Yakisoba). My friend had Prawn Shouga Yaki Don (which got thumbs up all the way). Service was prompt and as tables were leaving, so they were being filled again. Will absolutely be returning here and I suggest you do too.

Our second visit to Pompoko and not disappointed in the least! Food is tasty and very good value for money if you are on a low budget! It is not a place for a "romantic" meal as the service is very fast and their always seems to be people queuing up for a table. We have cleared our plates of food on both visits, so they must be doing something right!
