About Gar's Chinese

A Brighton institution in the heart of the famous Lanes, Gars has been serving Chinese food with attitude for over 20 years. This family-run restaurant is smart, sophisticated and streamlined, with polished bamboo flooring and modern silk shades. It’s set over three floors, with a private function room and bar downstairs (with the possibility of karaoke if the mood takes you), a ground-floor section with red-leather panelling and soft lighting, and the first-floor dining rooms. The food is a clever mix of classic and modern Chinese, alongside other Asian favourites like Thai green curry and salmon teriyaki. Start with tender beef carpaccio served with sesame and chilli dressing, then dither between fresh scallops in black bean sauce, lamb shanks with ginger and spring onions or the sensationally savoury Cantonese roast duck. Your stomach may tell you there’s no room for the gorgeous toffee bananas. Ignore it.

One of the very best, carefully crafted Chinese meals that I've had in a long time. I cannot recommend the sesame prawn toast higher... Truly fantastic, fully flavoured and exceptionally well presented by the chef. The service also deserves a mention; attentive, prompt, helpful and unobtrusive.

A very special find.

This was a lovely resturant. We went on a monday night & it was very quiet. The staff were very nice & informative. The food was good - we had the set meal for two & there was too much to eat! I would recommend this resturant.

Squid was delicious, but some of the other dishes were disappointing - the satay sauce was bland, the pork wasn't very interesting.

Service was excellent.

Quite impressed with Gar's Chinese restaurant in Brighton and would go back. Excellent service and good food quality.

Fantastic food, service a bit slow on a v busy night

Gar's Chinese Restaurant in Brighton is always worth a visit. On this occasion, we enjoyed the £30 per couple (including a drink) menu. Although restricted in scope, this menu offered more than adequate choice and the food was excellent. Recommended.

What a great idea thank you Toptable I came across you by chance while playing on the net. Fabulous promt professional service from Toptable all details sent to my mobile and laptop. Our first visit to Garrs recomended by friends lovely eating experience, helpful attentive saff excelent food we chose the set lunch menue perfect portions £10 per person. We chose the house wine served along side the table in a wine bucket nice touch, our glasses refreshed fequently. Lovely

We went to Gar's Chinese in Brighton on a Wednesday night before 7pm, and the first thing we noticed as we were shown to our table is how noisy it was! There was a private function in the room nearby and it was very loud. However, the food made up for it! I have to say it was the best prawn toast I've ever had, and my husband said similar about his squid starter. We had a winter warmer menu offer, so 2 courses for £14pp and first drinks a £1. Overall a good experience.

I took a party of ten to Gar's in Prince Albert Street, Brighton and couldn't have asked for a better evening. The service was excellent from the start, the food was well presented and very tasty. If you want an enjoyable evening in a good setting with high quality food, try Gars.

Soft shell crab and beef carpacio we're both good starters. Unimpressed with sizzling beef fillet though. It was served in a gravy boat, not very sizzling and a bit bland. Tasted more like poor english steak house than Chinese. However i think this dish was an unfortunate choice. Good overall and recommended. Service and cleanliness were good.

The food was very good, the service was excellent and theportions are large.

Nice environment. Smiling, helpful staff. Lovely food beautifully presented. A joy.

I dined at Gars in Brighton last night. The food was great, the staff were very friendly and had a great atmosphere. Meal for 2 came to £50 for 2 of us and we chose from a 2 course set menu and also ordered quatre of duck. Would definetly go again.

Gar's Chinese was one of the best Chinese restaurant I have been to. Would certain go again when I am in Brighton.

Gar's Chinese, Albert St, Brighton. Visited on a whim and wasn't disappointed. Two courses +glass of wine. Excellent value. Well presented. Me, salty chilli deep fried squid followed by sea bass. Him, spare ribs then beef. Served with Chinese cabbage and rice. Good value for money.

Gars in Brighton - always an excellent recommendation for dinner, the food is top quality, service is good and it's a guaranteed safe bet for a great night!

Gars, Brighton

We went here for lunch as a family and Gars did not disappoint. The food, as always, was scrumptious and the service was wonderful.

Totally recommend!

Gars, Brighton.

Staff were very friendly. Although on arrival we were told that the special offer finished at 7pm, and it was a common mistake toptable made. An embarrassing way to begin our meal.Gars has been known as Chinese fine dining, unfortuneately not now. Chicken over cooked and dry on satay. Squid over cooked and rubbery. And a beef dish inedible, smoothered in overpowering sauce. Not the delicate flavours we remembered from previous visits.

We went to Gars in Brighton for an anniversary, and found it full on a week night, which is a good sign! Went for the summer offer and paid extra for duck too. The food was nice but not amazing, on a par with most good chinese restaurants, not greasy at all. Portions were quite small- sea bass had just one fillet in the fish and a small chicken breast in the drunken chicken. The staff were very attentive and polite. A nice restaurant but not quite as romantic as hoped.

Went here for the first time, the food was lovely and the restaurant was lovely as well. Was quite expensive though but worth it
