An empty restaurant is never a good sign, especially at eight in the evening. Had we not taken a taxi to the place I we would have left straight away, mistake. This barn of a place at the rear of a run down boozer is totally lacking in atmosphere, even half full I would doubt would make a difference. Food... More

Recently tried this venue with a current groupon voucher. Had a drink in the pub next door whilst waiting for friends which was interesting. You have to take your hat off to the landlord he's trying they have everything in there from lottery machines to pool tables and lots of snacks like chocolate etc..... The restaurant next door is very... More

One of those places where you need to look past the entrance (tucked into the back room of the New Inn), and enjoy the sublime food. Some of the best curry our group have tasted came out of the kitchen, very good value for money as well. It really is worth the detour to find it.

Took some time to find it - virtually hidden in a peculiar large back room of a pub. The restaurant was/is very stark lacking decor and heating , in addition the lighting was so poor the menu was nigh on impossible to read. Suffering from cold and poor service (very very poor ) the food was better than you would... More

Entering the premises from the rear was not very impressive. There is a room with a large window which is full of junk all on show because the blind has fallen down. The entrance had squashed dog ends everywhere and the whole area was a bit tatty to say the least. The restaurant itself has a decor that it sadly... More

Have been looking for a good Indian restaurant in the area for years, but have always been disappointed with bland attempts. Planet Papadom has changed all that. Have now tried a selection of dishes and all were superb. The dishes are freshly cooked with authentic ingredients and are full of flavour. The Manager is very helpful and keen for you... More

We ate here on Saturday night after seeing recommendation on Trip Advisor. Negotiating the entrance via the New Inn could be a bit daunting to those not in the know. ( recommend access by the side entrance ) Once inside we were greeted by pleasant and cheerful staff, who were a little over attentive initially, maybe due to there not... More

Like almost all the previous reviewers have stated - it was a surprise to find this gem of a new Indian restaurant, located on the back of The New Inn in Oakdale, Poole. It is run independently from the public house by an excellent team of chefs from Bangladesh, (excuse me if I am wrong!) who are trying their hardest... More
