Always full of people this place, and it's easy to see why as the food is very very reasonably priced and of great quality too! Real tasty. You can bring your own alcohol in for £1 too so no need to an expensive drinks bill

Great little place in Brighton. The bbq eel Domburi was delicious. The service was really fast and the food came on time and hot. It was also very affordable. For 10 pounds per person we ate and left very happy.
