About us


Curry Leaf Cafe serves award-winning Indian street food, curries and craft beers from three colourful and unique dining spots in Brighton. The original Brighton Lanes Cafe – opened in April 2014 – operates as a cafe-cum-lunch spot during the day with a range of coffees, teas, snacks and traditional South Indian street food, as well as more substantial meals such as thali platters, dosas and tandoor naan wraps. In the evenings diners flock to the cafe to experience its small but diverse menu of tandoor-grilled meats, vegan street food and expertly spiced curries, accompanied by Brighton's best range of craft beers and cocktails. 
The most recent addition to the Curry Leaf Cafe family is Kemptown Kitchen, located in Brighton's vibrant Kemptown district. This smaller open-plan kitchen/dining space offers a playful take on Indian food that focuses on sharing, with the option of smaller plates for those who want to taste as many dishes as possible. The venue also provides a seven-days-a-week home takeaway delivery service in collaboration with Deliveroo, plus a 10% discount to customers who order direct & pick up from the restaurant. 
In early 2016, Curry Leaf Cafe made history by launching an Indian street food kiosk inside Brighton Station – a UK first – serving up an exciting menu of authentic Indian breakfasts, street food, curries, paratha wraps and craft beer, all day, seven days a week.
