Why we love it

Relatively new to the Brighton foodie scene is Kujira, a modern Japanese ‘izakaya’ specializing in Robata and cocktails.

A ‘Robata’ is a grill restaurant that uses a slow burning wood or coal technique without live flames to produce a rich, intense flavour unlike any other. Kujira is the perfect place to come with friends for Japanese style sharing plates and some of the best cocktails in the city. There are plenty of veggie, vegan and gluten-free dishes available and the impressive cocktail list has been curated by their in-house mixologist and utilises homemade botanicals, syrups, garnishes and flavours.

Great food, beef main and aubergine starter were delicious.


Fantastic value for money and great food. Very friendly service, and loved the venue as well. A hidden gem in Brighton that you won't regret discovering.


Excellent restaurant. However wasn't able to pay the extra supplement for certain dishes through the Wriggle app or at the restaurant either. Therefore couldn't try the dishes I wanted


Great food and friendly staff. The pork belly main course was dreamy!


chic but not overly fancy japanese barbecue. terrific healthy tasty sumptuous food, quite unlike anything i'd had before.


Kujira gave us a truly fantastic evening. The meal was absolutely delicious. Special mention has to be made of the Chicken Gyoza, which were superb. The staff were lovely, the Tacos tasty and the cocktails delicious.
