About Curry Leaf Cafe - Kemptown Kitchen
Sharing with friends is what our Kemptown Kitchen is all about – a light, open space where diners can grab anything from a quick bite and a cocktail to a full-scale feast for up to 26 people, all in full view of the kitchen and chefs that are preparing it.
Where our original Brighton Lanes Cafe focuses on traditional South Indian food, Kemptown Kitchen mixes things up with a modern, playful take on casual dining that borrows from all quarters of India's culinary heritage – with a few interesting detours thrown in. The food arrives at the table tapas-style, as soon as it's ready rather than in a conventional 'starter and main' format, and the menu changes every two months to keep things fresh for regular diners. Like the drinks menu, it also leans heavily on local suppliers for its seasonal ingredients, and vegans, vegetarians and gluten-intolerant diners are well catered for – along with families looking for a spacious, friendly lunch stop on weekends, when the kitchen is open from 1pm till late.
Andrew, Emma and the team organised a wonderful staff Christmas party for us. The food was as good as ever and it was great to introduce some of the office who hadn't eaten here before.
I came here for my birthday. All the food was amazing and then staff were really helpful and friendly. It is reasonably priced too.
Divine dishes, unique flavour in every dish. You MUST try the cake ❤️
Great meal. Friendly service. We'll be back.
