Expert review of Coriander

Attached to a brilliant, eclectic deli, this is one of the friendliest places in town.

North Africa meets South Africa in this unusual deli restaurant. It’s a little off the beaten track, but it definitely deserves to be better known.

Food and drink: 

The restaurant is best known for its Moroccan dishes - fragrant tagines, tasty lentil soup and fried seafood with chermoula (spicy dipping sauce made with crushed chilli, coriander and other herbs). The chatty owner also rustles up treats such as Cape-Malay fishcakes and ostrich steaks from his native South Africa. The deli serves pricey but fantastic mezze, antipasti, sandwiches and wraps to take away or eat on the spot.

Ambience: 

Like the menu, the décor blends Moroccan and South African influences for a cosy, homespun-ethnic feel. The outside tables catch the sun on fine days.

Service: 

It's enthusiastic and convivial.

Location: 

It's a short hop off the seafront in deepest Hove, near the ageing King Alfred Leisure Centre.

Price advice: 

Main courses cost £11-£18; sandwiches are £5.50.
