We visited Planet Papadum for a quick bite to eat one Sunday evening and were not disappointed. It is a nice, clean restaurant and we liked the variety on the menu. Good service and friendly staff assisted us during our visit.

Often go here. The starters, curry, rice and naan bread were good. The desserts were awful like granite, rock hard couldn't even get a spoon in it and the ice cream had no taste was like hard snow. Would never have a dessert there again but would go back for a main meal.

I have visited this restaurant a few times before and been very pleased with the service and the food, and have always highly recommended it. On this occasion I visited, i ordered a takeaway and telephoned to order it. I was advised it would be 20 minutes so I left early expecting to wait when I arrived. The food was... More

We had a lovely meal here after recommendation from our hotel hosts. We were not disappointed. The food was very tasty, the service was attentive but not 'in your face' and we thought it was reasonably priced. We found lots of different 'special' dishes on the menu and tried 2 of them and were pleased with our choices. We also... More

The restaurant was busy so we thought it must be good We were seated by the door and under a cold blowing air con unit. The meal was luke warm but the staff weren't interested once our meal was brought to us. No-one even asked if it was all o.k. They were more keen to keep the regulars happy. Would... More

It was late so we didn't want to mess about. It doesn't look very nice from the outside and was a bit mucky inside, i.e. the carpet, etc. However, the staff were friendly & helpful and the food was delicious. I would recommend this Indian restaurant to anyone staying in Great Yarmouth. Lovely food.
