    Lovely food and a very warm welcome at the minuscule and cosy Helm Ston. It really does have the style of a magic caravan. SUCH delicious food and the staff and owner are all too willing to talk about the choices and help with setting you up with a delicious meal or snack. Don't miss the Pau D'Arco, ginger, pepper & lime tea, its amazing.

    Really one of the best places around for vegetarian/vegan food. Good value, seriously tasty and clean eating.

    I had the gado-gado for lunch and it’s exceptional. Very big, but also very nice. Can’t recommend this food enough. I also had a delicious turmeric, ginger and pineapple tea.

    I had the Gado Gado and was best vegetarian food I’ve eaten on this continent. Beautiful looking and packed with loads of amazing flavour and textures. Very cool place and will go back to eat in

    We really enjoyed our meal here and this would have gotten a great review if it wasn't for the comment by the chef here. After finishing our meal a white woman walked in who had been undercharged and she wanted to give the money back for the food she hadn't paid for. Nice right? The chef had seen the woman but had missed the conversation and asked the waiter what happened. The waiter told him. The chef said 'ah nice, I like that, white trust, white culture'. Me and my partner both heard this seperately. I am white and he is a POC. Even though the food was great, I do not want to support a place like this.

    I’d recommend this beautiful and unique eatery to anyone who loves food and flavour. This place is the definition of a hidden gem and it needn’t cost an appendage. Understated, restorative and indulgent, I love this place. Even if you’re just to walk away with a cake or pastry which is usually a masterpiece unto itself, you’ll have experienced a lesser known nook of Brighton that speaks to the beauty of the city.

    Hands down the best most inventive vegan food in Brighton. A truly enjoyable experience not to be missed.

    The food at Helm Ston massively exceeds expectations. It is legitimately one of the best lunches I have ever had.

    This has been nothing short of a revelation since being introduced to the Helm Ston very recently. the food is outstanding. I only wish it was a little bit bigger as often difficult to get a seat at busier times.

    Friendly knowledgable staff. Great range of food and drinks. Cosy special and private atmosphere. We loved the jazzy coffee.

    I am so impressed with this little cafe. For somewhere so small it is huge in character, service and flavour. A must try for its amazing food. Highly recommended

    I often struggle to find a place to eat where I actually appreciate the food. Most place seem to sell the same type of dishes... But Not here! I really enjoyed the food and Andy the chef and will go back!

    This place is a hidden gem. Amazing, healthy, feel good food, juices and cakes. The chef is super lovely and very attentive. Great value especially when on a lunch break and wanting something reasonable but healthy too. Has an awesome vibe to the place, tiny venue, so don't expect to sit it, take-out is best especially as a few public gardens near by. The place has a real charm to it, reminds me of days gone by when traveling around India with the quirky board writing and random bits and bobs on the walls. Only minor issue it the guy who often works on the till with the beanie hat on is rather miserable and comes across a little rude but please don't let this put you off as the food is gorgeous and there is another guy with long hair that sometimes is there who is really lovely. All good is mainly Vegan or if you ask them nicely they will adapt the dish to be Vegan as it is all made fresh to order! As an additional note they closed on Sundays and Mondays so save your visit for a Tues-Sat :-)

    Had a few different cakes from Helm Ston, some nice food and they also do great coffee! It is a very nice little place owned by a lovely man! Great for vegans but also nonvegans because everything is simply delicious!

    I've been past this tiny cafe and takeaway many times and never given it a thought, but today, on the recommendation of a friend, joined the queue and tried the (huge) curry pasty as a takeaway, sitting in the spring sunshine, on The Level. It was fabulous: with beans, sweet potato and cauliflower (and other things) in a tasty pastry. I shall definitely be back for more.

    My sister and I first came across this restaurant on a recommendation from my neighbour several years ago when it was known as the Jolly Green as a pop up restaurant on certain week days. We ordered the Gado Gado and were intrigued by the beautiful colours on the boards and décor. Gado Gado is an Indonesian salad that we'd never heard of before so we were both unsure what to expect. The food arrived and it was a wonderful cornucopia of colours and textures, we both felt it was going to be good. So then we proceeded to try it. Both silent for a while, we looked at each other knowing what the other was thinking! This was the most insanely delicious and incredible food we'd ever eaten. We were both in heaven! We are foodies, both meat eaters but enjoy vegetarian food also. This was just out of this world! It made me contemplate why I ever ate meat when vegetarian/vegan food could taste this good. That was years ago. I don't go as often as I'd like because I'm a busy single mama but when I do the standard never drops. Everything on the menu I've tried has been amazing. My sister will pay special trips when she comes to visit from London. The Helm ston is utterly unique and the man behind it is a culinary genius. I've just started college in the area and have decided this will be my treat most weeks. I really want this restaurant to do well but also maintain it's wonderful vibe. It's a little piece of heaven and I'm so glad I found it. I have no idea how they do it for the little money they charge. Long may it continue to bring joy to people's lives! I know I'm gushing. This is just my honest thoughts on the place. Try it! You'll understand why. :)
