Had an excellent lunch in this restaurant and neither myself nor my husband are vegetarian. The food was tasty, fresh, beautifully presented.Nor overpriced either.

Service was excellent, helpful and friendly.

We would recommend this restaurant to anyone vegetarian or not.

Fantastic food , good value for money , service is very friendly only downside was we had to wait 10min. For a table. They were very busy when we arrived. Burgers and shakes are so delicious and very very generous portions. They go a long way to make sure that you don't leave the place hungry.

Very good coffee too, we had one of their iced vanilla lattes it was so yummy.

Definitely go and visit weather you are veggie or not.

I met some friends in Brighton the last Tuesday and stumbled across this great place in the lanes. It's a bright blue cafe/restaurant that has a great range on the menu for everyone. My 2 friends were veggie and loved it, we had 3 kids with us and they all loved it too (maybe down to the fact they were given pens and paper- very child friendly). My little one had veggie sausages and chips and beans as she's very unadventurous but the others had a dipping platter with healthy vegetables, pitta and humous to dip. We shared a burger and falafels between us plus some sweet potato chunky fries (extra delicious!). The service was good and the bill came to about £45 which for 3 adults and 3 kids was amazing value for money. Will definitely be back again.

I am very sorry to say that from regarding this place as my vegetarian home-away-from-home when I'm frequently in Brighton I’m now swearing I'll never go there again. And this was not down to the food, but the terrible, appalling service and an incident that played out in a most shocking way!

After a lovely day in Brighton my partner and I arrived at Wai-Kika-Moo-Kau. We sat down and ordered. He went for the halloumi pitta bread (£7.60 - to quote the menu - 'overflowing with hallumi and peppers') Out came the food, the portions looked generous as we had commented upon. HOWEVER...about 5 forkfuls into his meal my partner realised that his generously overflowing pitta was anything but! closer examination revealed the pitta was stuffed with salad, no pepper and 4 ungenerous pieces of halloumi balanced on top for good measure - accompanied by a couple of handfuls of oily chips and half a plate of salad.... We both like salad as much as the next person - however resent paying £7.60 for a plateful of the stuff...

We called over the lady serving us and explained the problem. She didn’t seem to understand. We explained again, still a lack of comprehension. Slowly it became apparent that it was not that she didn’t understand, but that she did not want to help. She initially refused to take the food back, and then eventually did with many tuttings, sighing, and not one apology. My partner decided he would wait for me to eat my food then go elsewhere for food so I didn’t have to wait.

Out came the bill. We checked it over, and were surprised to see that the pitta we had sent back with five forkfuls missing was still included in the price! I spoke to the same lady and was utterly shocked when she told me ‘I can’t take that off the price’! I reminded her that he had sent it back because he was not happy with it, she told me ‘we can’t refund eaten food‘. I was shocked as he had not even eaten a quarter of it! I told her this and was told ‘well you have to pay’. After a moment of shocked silence I informed her that we would not be paying. She told me once again that we had to. I repeated, slowly clearly, that we would not be paying for the dish. With this she replied in a rude, petulant and non-caring way - ‘well if that’s how you feel - don’t pay for anything,…and don’t come back!’… I found this response unbelievable - that someone in the service industry could be so rude, and in today’s economic times would turn down business seemingly because they were throwing a tantrum - I have never been treated so rudely in any restaurant! Not only did they lose the entire bill instead of just 7.60, they also lost the future custom from me, my family, my friends, and every single person I can convince! What was even more worrying was that this woman who threw her toys out of the pram like an angry toddler appeared to be the manger that day - I do hope she’s not the owner.

In the end we didn’t pay for anything - So I’d like to say one more time, cheers again for the free meal w.k.m.k - would much rather have had an apology, good service and been able to go back there again and again, but oh well.
