Four of us (one a strict vegetarian) had a 6pm booking on a Saturday night. The restaurant was fully booked from opening time but the service was fast and attentive. A varied menu with options to have half dishes so that we could try everything, mixing and matching between us. The food was innovative and tasty, including the starters. The... More

Eleven of us ate here on a Friday night after reading some good reviews online. We were not disappointed: the food was excellent; the beers in particular were interesting and service was efficient and friendly. The atmosphere was lovely, too, almost as though we were in a living room. I would recommended Planet India if you are looking for an... More

I had been hearing good things about the food at Planet India for quite some time and so, on a whim, my girlfriend and I decided to book a table on a Saturday night. After we were seated by the friendly staff and upon being presented with the menus it became apparent that we had made a good decision. The... More

Enjoyed eating the vegetarian food very much - the craft beer complemented it very well. Good value and hope to return soon. Very friendly host too!

This place is so unassuming. A little way out of the town centre, but if you want homely indian food this is definitely the place. I felt that I was a guest in their home, lots of family photos make this one of the cosiest restaurants in town. Service is great, the food is unlike any other Indian restaurant -... More

Booked a table for Saturday night. Upon arrival we were waved towards our table from the counter. We waited for over 20 minutes (we were given the menu in the interim) - no drinks offered. Just ignored. Complacent and pretty rude. I won't be returning (we have been in the past and the food was pretty good, the service was... More

A very warm welcome from our host who patiently guided us through the menu. The food and service were brilliant and the selection of beers was way above the normal Indian restaurant. The atmosphere had a bohemian feel to it and unfortunately there were no desserts. Why?...I don't know.
