'Small plates', street food & spiced cocktails – a playful new take on Indian casual dining in Brighton's vibrant Kemptown district

 

KEMPTOWN KITCHEN

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.

THE MENU

Small plates & street food are what our Kemptown Kitchen is all about; dishes designed to be shared with friends over a craft beer, glass of wine or a spiced cocktail. The menu leans on local farms and producers and changes every two months to keep things fresh. 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.

 

RESERVATIONS

Kemptown Kitchen 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).
