Ideally located in the lanes near Brighton's seafront, Gars has been a specialist provider of authentic and contemporary Chinese cuisine - along with selected Thai and Japanese fare - since 1983. Once a fairly small restaurant, Gars now covers three floors with its genuine Oriental design, which is infused with more modern, stylish aspects; bamboo wood flooring, soft lighting and red leather padded walls complement both the terrific food and the pleasant, lively atmosphere. The staff too make the experience all the more enjoyable with their polite, friendly and accommodating approach. Gars' increased space means the venue now boasts two function rooms with capacity for up to 120 people for wedding parties and formal dinners; there are also special facilities for some not-quite-so-formal karaoke.

The menu is designed to cater for every taste and preference, with an extensive range of meat, seafood and vegetarian dishes. Why not begin with one of the hors d'oeuvres to share; the 'chef's choice' is a delectable combination of sesame prawns on toast, quick-fried chicken in salt and chilli, tempura vegetables and barbecue ribs. If this doesn't take your fancy, there are plenty of appetisers and delicious traditional soups that certainly will. As for the mains, select from the creme de la creme of Asian fare with offerings such as Gars' spicy vegetable hotpot with vermicelli and chilli, or the sizzling shredded roast duck in a classic Thai green curry. If you're having trouble deciding there is always the 'leave it to us' menu option for you and your dining partners, with a generous selection of dishes such as the 'emperor's choice' to delve into, including three courses from £26 per person. All of the food is expertly cooked personally by the owners, so you can be assured of its quality and authenticity. Gars is utterly dedicated to its guests; whether you're holding a private party or simply enjoying an evening meal, they are committed to providing excellent food and service - and they certainly deliver.
