'Small plates', street food & spiced cocktails – a playful new take on Indian casual dining in Brighton's vibrant Kemptown district
Nestled on a corner between Brighton's bustling St James's Street & Kemptown Village a short stroll to the east, Curry Leaf Cafe's new Kemptown Kitchen features a purpose-built open kitchen & dining area designed to allow customers to interact with the chefs preparing their food. Tall glass windows equipped with stools for counter-top dining, colourful decor and a small (but perfectly formed) bar stocked with a fantastic range of craft beers & spiced cocktails combine to make our Kemptown Kitchen ideally suited to the area's unique approach to nightlife.
Small plates & street food are what our new Kemptown Kitchen is all about; dishes designed to be shared with friends over spiced cocktails and craft beers. The menu leans heavily on local farms and producers for its ingredients – as does the bar for its craft beer & cocktails – and changes on a monthly basis to keep things fresh and exciting. Where the original Brighton Lanes cafe focuses on authentic South Indian food, our new Kemptown Kitchen mixes things up with a modern, playful take on casual dining that borrows from all quarters of India's culinary heritage – with a few interesting detours thrown in
Kemptown Kitchen doesn't operates a 'first come, first served' walk-in-only policy; during busy times, diners are invited to take a drink at the bar while they wait for a table to come free, or can use our waitlist app and head to the nearest pub while they await text notification that their table is ready. Reservations are taken from larger groups at our discretion (NB: a security deposit is payable at time of booking). Call us on 01273 526910 or email email@example.com
As well as its 'small plates' dine-in experience, Kemptown Kitchen also offers a full takeaway dinner service every night, seven days a week. Locals can use our new 'click & collect' online ordering system to pay for their food and collect directly from the restaurant, earning a 10% discount off their bill in the process. Orders can also be placed via telephone on 01273 526910, although please note that our lines can get busy during peak times.
Alternatively, you can order food for home delivery via our partner Deliveroo.
Each month, Kemptown Kitchen will host a themed evening treating diners to a special menu dedicated to a region of India. Chef Kanthi will also be collaborating with local, national & international chefs to put on exciting supperclubs that fuse Indian spicing with radically different styles of cooking from other parts of the world. Keep an eye on our Facebook page, Twitter feed and the news section of our website for info.
