Very reasonable cafe and very quick service, even when we were in on a busy Saturday lunchtime. Good variety of dishes and served very quickly. Great for a snack or a more hearty lunch than just a sandwich.

We came here for lunch on a Sunday. We had vegetable gyoza, tofu don, prawn don and edamame. The place is very informal, slightly cramped, but with good and friendly service. Our food was average but certainly very good for the price; the sauces were slightly sweet but we asked for some soy sauce and salt and everything was very... More

I often went there when I had to grab a quick bite in my lunch break, they have fresh and fast food and their dumplings are amazing! It's a really small place and they don't have a lot of tables, but you can always order Take out and when it's sunny you can eat it at the Pavillion Gardens which... More

Came here for a quick evening meal. We were lucky to find a table upstairs but it's a very small place so be warned that it might be hard to get a table. However, they do offer takeout if there are no tables. The food was great and was at a great price. They don't accept cards so make sure... More

This place is fantastic, if you fancy a quick and tasty meal. Yes it's always busy, but that's because the food is lovely. This place is a must if your visiting or living in Brighton and Hove.

We've been to Pompoko a number of times now and it has always been great. It's always busy which I think adds to the lively and buzzy atmosphere generated by lovely staff and a room full of people enjoying great food. Our food today arrived incredibly fast and was lovely as usual. 2 main courses, a side and 2 soft... More

Being visitors to Brighton with a local friend, we were guided here by someone who had visited before with the disclaimer "it's about £6 a meal". That was enough to draw me in. We arrived at a seemingly good time as there was a table for four available outside. Ordering was simple. I find it difficult to pronounce certain languages... More

The prices are very cheap for the amount of food and quality you are given! I used to only get their chicken yakissoba but after trying their Tori Chilli Don I always ask for it!!! Also their praws are delicious!!! The only criticism I could give is that they should expand the size and that the ladies working didnt pressure... More

After an evening at the theatre my friend and I decided to give decided to give Pompoko as a lot of our friends had highly recommended it. We found the food to be very cheap and very tasty. The only downside was that the food was a little cold and some was undercooked. Once we had ordered the food it... More
