La Choza Brighton – Mexican

The authentic Mexican restaurant located in the heart of the North Laine area is just as quirky and colourful as the bustling streets and characters in our city.

The offering at La Choza Brighton is simple, affordable and delicious combining classic Mexican dishes with tasty cocktails. Opening their doors in 2012 La Choza have taken the foodie scene in the city by storm, their success was recently marked by the opening of their second venue on Western Road in Hove.

Funky decor

The small venue on Gloucester Road, just off Kensington Gardens, offers an intimate affair. For bigger groups their Western Road venue offers more space. The funky decor looks like you have walked straight into the Day of the Dead Festival in Mexico City – think brightly coloured wrestling masks and plenty of glitter and flags.

Tasty street food

The dishes here are slow cooked, braised and stewed over time to create complex flavours with an uncomplicated menu. Burritos come packed with fluffy rice, smoked pulled pork and tangy salsa whilst the heat is offset by the sharp, salty margaritas. Small plates are great for sharing or adding as a side to one of their bigger dishes – choose from simple yet innovative dishes like calamari with chipotle or cerviche tostada.

    me and my partner visited this restaurant for lunch before checking into out hotel for my birthday. We had an HOUR AND A HALF WAIT for some topped nachos and the burrito bowl.
    During our wait we weren’t checked on by any of the staff and no apologies were given for why the food was taking so long.
    We sat and saw at least 4 different groups who came in 20/ 30 mins after us get served before we both did.
    this time cannot even be justified as the meals we ordered where simple and shouldn’t have taken more than 30 mins.

    I would’ve been a lot happier if the food we got was delicious but the only barely hot thing on my plate was the cheese. I was given bland and cold pulled pork.

    They’re lucky my partner keeps me grounded otherwise i would’ve walked out and taken their cactus plant with me!!!!!!!

    The family love Mexican food, this place opened 5 years ago and we regulally pop into it if we are around the North Laine area. The first thing you notice walking to the restaurant is the amazing bright colours on the outside of the restaurant, this continues inside and throughout the restaurant. This place seems busy most times of the day but if a table is free shortly you can wait around the reception area or outside if the weather is not bad. While waiting we always try their selection of salsa dips and corn chips (go careful with the hot ones).
    They have plenty of gluten free options and simple tasty kids options on the menu. The wife comments on how good the margaritas are there. Depending on what you order the flavours and heat coming through in the dishes are what you want from a really good Mexican restaurant. My wife loves the fish dishes they have on the menu and I always opt for they’re amazing burritos.

    As a vegan the option is limited but it’s still really good for a once in a while dinner, I love Mexican green rice and wish I could get the stuff I do at home to taste this good. Margarita’s and burritos are just a brilliant way to start an evening and there’s something really fun and social about this little restaurant.

    Me and my family love this place and are pleased they are opening a new branch on Western road. You are greeted outside with the amazing smell of there meats which they slow cooker and smoke on site. The quality of the food is always amazing and fresh and fantastic value for money with an ever changing specials board. We choose to go here as our 9 year old loves the colourful interior and it was a great way to get her interested in different food from around the world. I can’t find fault with this place.
