Choosing a Chinese Restaurant in Brighton?

Gars Chinese Brighton Restaurant

Chinese restaurants in Brighton are in abundance. Prince Albert St (South Lanes), Preston Street and Brighton Marina are probably the hot spots in Brighton with at least half a dozen to choose from but you will find Chinese restaurants plentiful throughout Hove and Brighton. Brighton and Hove in fact  have a huge Chinese community.

Gars Chinese Restaurant is very well established and in the heart of the South Lanes. The Gar family and their team have been leading the way with Chinese food in Brighton since 1983. Definitely one we recommend for you with a very fine dining approach to Chinese cuisine.

Brighton Marina Restaurant, Pagoda, Floating

Another stunning option for you too is the Brighton Pagoda restaurant at the Brighton Marina, this is a floating restaurant and the only floating Chinese restaurant located in the sea. A very novel experience and a firm favourite in Brighton as it has been around for some 17 years.

One of our favourites also, is the China Garden on Preston Street. We recall many moons ago that the Chinese Delegation were over visiting Brighton and this was their restaurant of choice; therefore we will agree that this restaurant is wonderfully authentic and they made a good choice.
