Absolutely must recommend this restaurant. The food is amazing and as a vegetarian, I can choose anything from them menu! It feels like you are in their front room and has a quirky charm. I must advise that you book in advance particularly for a Saturday. There is a really good beer menu as well. The only issue might be... More

We have visited here a few times and regularly take family visitors here for it's charm and fully vegetarian menu (I'm not but partner and her family all are). Friendly staff and owner is a great host (never wears shoes when I have seen him, a man after my own heart) who is very welcoming. Food a good selection and... More

I will start by saying if you're a fan of 'English' Indian food you NEED to try this place, it's authentic and unlike anything you'll get from your local takeaway. You feel as though you're sitting in someone's living room and the vibe is so chilled, the menu is simple and hilarious (go there you'll see what I mean) very... More

I shared 4 main dishes as well as trying a fifth. They were all ok, but having been to india I can honestly say none of them were authentic. Sugar was used in nearly every dish and the refinement of spices simply wasn't there.

We had come to Brighton to see a gig in Kemp Town and walked from there to Planet India on a hunch that it might be good... good? it was brilliant! Simple but fun decor, great friendly service, we hadn't booked, it was early on a Friday evening but they fitted us in. The food was freshly cooked and delicious.... More

My wife and I visited Planet India in March 2015. The restaurant has an informal , friendly and relaxed vibe and was pretty full on a weekday evening. It's clearly a popular local restaurant. We shared a starter of Dhai Bhel Puri and each had a different main course. The starter was the highlight of the meal. Tasty, zingy and... More

Warm welcome from the owner who was really helpful when I asked a couple of questions about how spicey particular dishes were. I like milder flavours and he took his time to advise me on what I might enjoy most. 2 starters, 2 mains and a bottle of the house white came to about £40 inc tip. Great value for... More
