Food was the best we’ve eaten in ages, we are still in awe of the mind blowing vegan feta 😍 Service was fantastic, staff are lovely, attentive and polite. We can’t wait to come back again :)

I thought the aubergine burger was very disappointing. My daughter had a great salad though. Chips were excellent. Difficult to feel comfortable with lorries driving within inches of our table, understand the need for this but the reality is a bit unpleasant. The staff were gracious though hardly attentive. We were not offered any condiments etc and the space feels impossible to beckon anyone over in as so away from the centre.
I will probably return when we can be seated inside but maybe not.

As always another stunning meal and warm, kind service at Food for Friends.
Obviously at the moment, we can only dine outside, so of course there is road noise and people passing by, but you're in the hustle and bustle of Brighton's Lanes. It's a great place to be! Loads of people watching.
If you can, ask for a table on the sunny side.

Absolutely love this restaurant and have been so many times before took a friend here yesterday and was so disappointed. I know the weather cannot be controlled but as we were mid dinner the heavens opened no umbrellas and nobody came out to try and rescue the food (we were one of 2 tables at the time) so ended up with a full plate of food which was soggy and no longer edible because of the rain but charged full price. We would have been happy if the food was taken instead and boxed up but we had to go inside to ask for the bill massive shame as I couldn’t wait for my friend to visit and try the food!

Really good feed. Just a shame that there were no heaters so that it became very cold very quickly. Waitresses were lovely! Decently affordable for a nice, vegan restaurant

Who says veggie food has no flavour? Not diners at Food for Friends that's for sure!

I’ve recently had to cut out milk and soya due to my small baby’s allergies and the staff were really helpful pointing out what would be safe to eat on the menu. Several options and very delicious food. Bit chilly outside and they had blankets to hand! Will definitely go back!

The food was nice enough but there wasn’t a lot of choice of mains; I’m guessing this is because they’re trying to serve food outside and it’s not really set up for people to be outside.

The service was excellent though and we got blankets when we were cold.

Absolutely loved it. Were sat outside due to Covid restrictions which was lovely as it was a hot sunny day! We were so excited to eat once we'd had a look at the menu - as two vegans it can be hard to feel excited about the food at restaurants sometimes as it can be very predictable but there was an array of delicious vegan options that we found it hard to choose between!

Would absolutely come back. The service was great - all the staff were so lovely and courteous. Really enjoyed it <3

We really enjoyed our meal at Food for Friends. The outside seating is in a really nice spot that catches the evening sun. The food was presented very nicely and tasted just as good and the service was great. Thank you!

Staff is amazing and very helpful. The food is also nice but they’re a bit salty on their own. I think it will be amazing with wines. We’ll definitely go there again.

This restaurant is next level. The food is out of this world and I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Even sitting outside in the cold to eat! It’s sooooo worth it!
I recommend the Thai cauliflower for starters if it’s still on the menu when you go!

Excellent food and generous portions too. The service was excellent, with polite and knowledgeable staff. We had to sit outside and it felt like being in zItaly, with the Lanes all around us and people milling past. A great experience.

Gotta say I was pleasantly surprised at just how good this place is having loved in Brighton for the best part of a few years. I started on the way out "its criminal we haven't been here".

All in all fantastic food and the service was sublime well done to the team here

Everything was great with the exception of the Negoni I ordered. It was not mixed enough to chill it. It was served with a slice of Orange not zest. My roast dinner was cold.

Service, starters and table was excellent.

So many places through theCovid crisis make customers feel as though they are imposing. Staff can be regimental about safety. None of the above is true for Food for Friends. Looking forward to returning in the new year
