Happy Maki will always have a special place in both visitors' and locals' hearts as it is a must-visit restaurant even during a short visit. They are a vegan-based sushi bar in Brighton, offering sushi burritos and bowls with gluten-free options. They are passionate, and it shows in their quality. The unique thing is that you are able to mix and match each dish, and they would actually show their costs to make a certain menu or your order. So other than their base cost, you are free to donate and value their services through the donation. The other great thing is that they will always ask you if you have any allergies, how thoughtful is that? Visit them and bring your hand-rolled sushi to the beach for an experience of a lifetime and to complete your Brighton journey (as it is also a common thing to do, beware of the seagulls though :D).
