Planet India is no ordinary Indian restaurant. The place does not look much from outside and indeed is a little crazy/ quirky on the inside but this just adds to its great homely feel. I am a meat eater and can honestly say that you do not miss the meat at all at this vegetarian restaurant. There is plenty of... More

We arrived without a booking and the waiters were very accommodating, finding us a table immediately and apologising that we only had it for 90 minutes - hardly a problem! This was just the start of a lovely experience. I love this place - barefoot waiters, an atmosphere that reminds you of being in somebody's living room complete with home... More

Loving the half-and-half option with the main courses - proper yin/yang presentation! Plenty of food, nice wine choice, super friendly staff in bonkers garb.... Relaxed and very tasty meal.

We ate here last night. We booked on a whim and we're so happy we did! The staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was just gorgeous, every mouthful was a delight! It all tasted so fresh and flavoursome. Would definitely come here again next we're time in Brighton :)

I have heard this place was good but it was off the scale. I simply could not believe it was vegetarian. This lovely Indian street food restaurant is below a block of flats and has a pink facade, enough to put most men off. Inside it has a magical and friendly feel with even the staff bare foot and so... More

I have eaten at planet India a few times and enjoyed it every time. It's a vegetarian restaurant but I didn't miss the meat for a second. When the foods this good you don't need it. Menu is great, the owners put a comical twist into it that makes the whole experience all the better and the staff give great... More

This is a great family run, vegetarian restaurant: a simple menu and a really friendly atmosphere and great decor. The walls are covered in old family photographs and Indian gods. If you've never been here before you'll get help with your menu choice. We usually enjoy the Black Chickpeas curry (hot), Sweetcorn and Patra curry, Tarka Dall and Masoor Dall.... More
