If you’re after an altogether different dining experience, then The Brighton Pagoda is definitely worth checking out – this is a Chinese restaurant with more than a few differences. The first (and most obvious) is that it’s on a boat. A gorgeous, authentic, oriental-style floating restaurant and miniature fine art gallery, this place is a one-of-a-kind.
Once inside, the gentle movement of the marina water is incredibly subtle but noticeable, the decoration and colours are absolutely beautiful, the fine Chinese artworks on display are stunning and the music is soft and relaxing. What more could you ask for in terms of atmosphere?
The food might be a little pricier than your average Chinese restaurants – you won’t find any all-you-can-eat deals here – but it’s beautifully flavoured and cooked fantastically. In the evening they serve fantastic value set menus from £18 and their lunch menu, three courses for £6.95, offers exceptional value for money but is fairly limited in choice.
I cannot recommend this place enough for something just that little bit unique. Due to its calm, quiet atmosphere, it’s absolutely perfect for a romantic meal. So if you think you’ve seen it all when it comes to Brighton restaurants, then head down to the marina and transport yourself to a little piece of China.
