Good quality food, very reasonably priced.

We were the first diners to arrive for our unbooked table for 2, service was good. We ordered papadums which were served warm with plenty of onion salad, pickle & chutney. Our main meals arrived quickly & were very tasty - the menu was good without being over complicated. The naan bread was... read more

Well after realising we didn't have much choice in where we ate at around 6.30pm we ventured in to this place. One other table of three people who left shortly after we sat down it was safe to say that we had no problem getting a table. Music was not what one expects it was foreign tech/house!!

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.

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
