Description: Curry Leaf Cafe serves up award-winning South Indian street food, expertly spiced curries and a wide range of international craft beers from a relaxed, colourful dining space in the heart of Brighton's bustling Lanes. Its range of quick and healthy lunches include soups, warm salads, dosas and open tandoor naan wraps, as well as traditional thali platters. The dinner menu, meanwhile, focuses on crisp, fresh-tasting street food and fragrant curries, rounded off with a selection of refreshing Indian desserts and infused ice creams. The ingredients used are seasonal and locally sourced where possible, and around half the menu is vegetarian. A wide selection of vegan, gluten- and dairy-free dishes is also offered, along with home delivery seven days a week via our partner Deliveroo. Curry Leaf Cafe was named a 'Local Gem' in the 2016, 2017 & 2018 editions of the Waitrose Good Food Guide and won 'Best Newcomer, South Coast' at the 2015 Asian Curry Awards.

I've try this place with my boyfriend for his birthday.
Big portions and good presented.
Fresh and spicy food.
Location it's a bit small and with pub music.
Service is friendly.

This curry shop was absolutely delish! Me and my son went here one day for a nice lunch, and we were surprised by the tasty spices and the variety of food here!

I had been recommended to this restaurant by a trusted source. It was ok but not great. The starters were ok apart from the poppadums which looked and tasted like a supermarket brand but the biggest bug bear of mine was the fish curry. In my opinion under no circumstances should be fish be served with skin on unless it is crispy. To have a mouthful of slimey skin that you have to extract whilst talking to friends opposite you in a restaurant is unacceptable... in any situation ever.

Visited on a Wednesday night and pre booked table online. Service was good, menu fairly small so easy to choose. We chose the tandoori platter which was very tasty, our friends had the lamb and fish dishes both of which they enjoyed particularly the lamb curry. Good choice of beers and wines (although as always expensive). Worth booking a table as by the time we left the place was almost full.

This is a very good cafe-style curry restaurant with friendly, helpful staff and a busy, fun atmosphere. We shared the various vegetarian starters and then had aloo mutter paneer and kara kalambu (veg curry) as mains. All were good, with the veg curry standing out because it was possibly the least oily curry I've ever had in a restaurant. It was also very hot - not spice hot, but temperature hot. The service was very good, and the constantly replenished bottles of tap water were very welcome.
