Top 5 Japanese and Sushi Restaurants in Brighton

2 May 2017 | Kaysha Woollery

Pompoko
 
Pompoko is conveniently located in the heart of Brighton, making it the perfect place to grab a bite before going out for drinks, catching a play or generally indulging in whatever delights the city has to offer. Even if you’re not going out and prefer to bring the taste of Japan to your living room, you can be sure not to end up with typical sushi-style selections. Pompoko boasts an eclectic menu to satisfy Western and Eastern palates alike, and with a generously portioned main meal plus drink costing under £10 your bank balance will also be a fan. Their chef is constantly experimenting with ingredients, meaning you can frequently catch special dishes on offer.

Find Pompoko at 110 Church Street, Brighton.
 
Sushi Garden
 
With a £6.50 daily lunch special and their 8-course UMI meal for only £29.90, your taste buds are guaranteed to arrive at Japanese bliss while leaving the overdraft behind. Sushi Garden is great for groups, as you can mix, match and share from their selection of fresh rolls to their salads, grills and bento boxes. The open kitchen is also visible from your table, so you can watch the magic happen behind the scenes. Plus their menu of mysteriously named cocktails (Angel Kiss or Calpis Sour, anyone?) will keep you on your toes.

Find Sushi Garden at 32A Preston Street, Brighton.
 
Sushimania
 
Keeping it cheap and cheerful, you can eat as much as you like at Sushimania for £16.80. But it’s not your average all-you-can-eat. Here you can feast on a range of plates from traditional Japanese cuisine, from sashimi, makis, tempuras, rice, noodles, grilled seafood and meats. Their fresh ingredients are also delivered daily, guaranteeing you to leave with a tummy as happy as your pockets.
 
Find Sushimania at 15-17 Middle Street, Brighton.
 
Moshimo
 
Moshimo was named by The Telegraph and Britain’s Finest as one of Britain’s Best Sushi Restaurants. Top-notch quality aside, they also take home the prize for design. Located in Bartholomew Square’s beautifully modern Opticon, the restaurant is designed to resemble a floating lantern. In true Japanese style, their shoji-inspired walls slide open in the summer to create a breezy al-fresco dining experience. Their Hiroba deck is also in keeping with the authentic Japanese dining experience, providing a seating surface that emulates the experience of sitting on tatami mats. Moshimo is also a star in the fish conservation ranks, producing FISHLOVE, the successful photography campaign launched to raise awareness of destructive fishing practices around the world. Want to get an exclusive look-in on the loveliness? Moshimo Members get 50% off the bill on Mondays and Tuesdays, plus special offers and a gift on the month of your birthday. Budding sushi chefs can also attend workshops at their sushi school.
 
Find Moshimo at Bartholomew Square, Brighton.
 
Happy Maki
 
We haven’t forgotten about the vegans! In Happy Maki's downstairs ‘zen garden’ their hearty sushi wraps are the gift that keeps on giving. Whether you opt for their hoisin ‘duck’, thai sweet potato, avocado kiss, or ‘fully loaded’ wrap, you can feed a child and plant a tree while you eat with 7p from each purchase donated to Mary’s Meals and 8p donated to Eden, the restoration project breathing life back into the forests of Haiti, Madagascar, Ethiopia, and Nepal. Happy Maki’s founder Anna came up with the idea while woofing in Kamoka, an organic Tahitian pearl farm in French Polynesia. Learning about the delicate nature of the oceans' ecosystems inspired her to set up Happy Maki to raise awareness of marine issues and promote veganism as a sustainable way to enjoy sushi, looking after your body and the oceans. Now that’s multi-tasking to the happy max!
 
Find Happy Maki at 8 Pool Valley, Brighton.
