In the 1950s and 60s, at the west entrance to the Regent Arcade, in Market Street, stood the Nanking Chinese Restaurant. In about 1958 or 59 this was the place where I first tasted Chinese food. Then in the late 1960s, when I was a student at Brighton Technical College, we used to go there for the set three course business lunch for 7s-6d (37 1/2p). At that time there were just two Chinese restaurants in Brighton, the Nanking and Choys. Neither of them did take-away food until the late 1960s / early 1970s.
