Amazing experience - Edit

Me and my canadian friend went to Wai Kika Moo Kau as an first vegan experience in Brighton. We decided to share to plate at 15,95 that gives you the opportunity to try a bit of everything on the menu. I'm really not disappointed of my choice. For 15,95 $ we had a big plate with a lot on it. There was enough for both to eat (I'm eating a lot). In addition, even if it was in the busy hours, the service was still really quick and good. The lady was lovely to us.

Fab Vegan Food - Edit

The menu is extensive and suits all tastes and dietary requirements and there is a specials board inside.
I chose falafel pitta with houmous, chips and salad and hubby ordered a salad, with two mugs of tea, badly needed as we had walked miles that morning.
The falafels and smoky houmous pitta was excellent, with crisp chips and salad and hubby loved his salad, especially the Moroccan beetroot. I was too full for cake, but what an assortment inside, made by What Leila Bakes an amazing display of vegan lusciousness. Highly recommended

Pros: Vegan options, Vegan cakes

nice - Edit

Lots of vegan options. That's always positive! We have been here a couple of times in the past. This time we only had some cakes. The chocolate/vanilla was great and fresh. The banana/vanilla was to dry and felt a bit to old. Was not nice to serve this quality. The coffee espresso was not good, to cold and not strong and creamy enough....

Pros: lots of options

Cons: coffee

Friendly, busy & good food - Edit

We visited in December 2016 for a light lunch. Had some really tasty thick and nourishing soup with bread, followed by some super yummy slices of cake. Checked out meals being served to other customers and all looked nice! Busy place so obviously popular and deservedly so.

Pros: Good range of food, Reasonable prices, Friendly atmosphere

Cons: Slightly cramped

Proper British Breakfast - Edit

Located on a great street in the famous Lanes area, this place was a lovely find. I ordered the full English breakfast (must be ordered vegan) while my girlfriend ordered the mini version. Mini version is still a good feed, but it does not include a hot drink.
It was the perfect British breakfast, matching my expectations and memories of the real thing. We sat out on the small terrace watching the world go by and enjoyed the friendly service and locals who clearly enjoy this place too.
The service was also friendly and prompt.

Pros: Great English breakfast, Good portion sizes, Ideal location

Cons: Not all vegan

ok but you will find better - Edit

Food is ok at best and the cafe is in dire need of refurbishment (think water stains on the ceiling etc).
Given the choice locally you will get better for the price

Great for children (and grown ups!) - Edit

We have to visit here every time we go to Brighton. It is on my daughter's 'must do' list. She loves the waffles and the hot dogs! We have been for breakfast a few times and the fact that you can choose from a small or large version is great for us. The big would be too big for me but great for my husband. Always had good experiences when we have been here.

Pros: Vegan Friendly, Inexpensive

good food, friendly service - Edit

This was my second time having breakfast here. Great veg menu with lots of vegan options. I had the pancakes stack with maple syrup and my boyfriend had the full vegan fry that came with grilled tofu.
I like how they have put thought into their vegan options and have altered the menu to suit. Big portions, tasty food, friendly staff and well located in the middle of the North laines. They also seem to have a wide range on their lunch menu with plenty of vegan options too.

Pros: good food, friendly staff, reasonable prices , good location

Fantastic Breakfast - Edit

Both times that I have been here I had the Full Vegan Breakfast and it was divine. The first time we sat outside with our dog and we all had different meals and drinks - no complaints. The second time I arrived really early on a cold Sunday morning and was welcomed in out of the Cold, before having another Full Vegan and it was lovely. Highly recommended.

Delicious breakfasts! - Edit

I love the vegan breakfasts here: the cooked breakfast is really delicious and hearty, and the pancakes are such a treat. We enjoyed them sitting in the sunshine last March, and it was just wonderful! The cakes on the counter and the rest of the menu looked really tempting too, I can't wait for another chance to visit.

good place to eat - Edit

Today we had dinner here and it was good. I had the veggie chilli vegan version and loved it. They put cheese over the nachos chips and let it melt. They also added humus and guacamole which made a nice combination. I also had a vegan chai with soy milk and ice cream and again it was very good.

Pros: good food, vegan options, good location

Will never go here again - Edit

I've been going in here off and on when in Brighton for probably over 10 years. Whilst you could never say either the menu was that exciting or the food was that special at the prices they charged for central Brighton it wasn't too bad and at least I thought that it was safe from a vegan perspective.Unfortunately over the last year they have messed up my son's order of sausage and chips by giving Quorn sausages instead of the vegan alternative but both times we noticed and they were swapped with profuse apologies.Today however was the final straw as my son and myself popped in to get two of their vegan option banana milkshakes.I was quite specific when placing the order and even restated the order to another member of staff who came over to check if we had ordered yet.When it came to paying I was billed for two regular i.e. non vegan milkshakes and when I queried this was told that they had served us dairy shakes. I have been vegan for 27 years and whilst my son is pure veggie he is allergic to cows milk and so I was very upset by this. Whilst they did refund the money I was taken aback by the waiter accusing me of being aggressive when as far as I could see I was just being justifiably upset.If you cannot employ waiting staff who can correctly take orders when you advertise yourself as being vegan friendly then you either need to review your staff or review your menu.I will certainly never go back to this place and would have given them a lower rating than two if it was possible.

Cons: Slow service, Small number of vegan options

Beckslondon 30 Jun 2015 - Was thinking to go here till I saw your review. That's terriible! I do hope your son wasn't too ill. If that had been me, it would have been disasterous. Id have been hospitalised! Stupid prats! - it's not always just because of ethics( though I am vegan anyway) but that's not the point! - poor you.
