“An Inventive mixture of Italian and Asian Cuisine.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

We always receive a lovely warm and friendly greeting, making us immediately feel at home every time we have been to Planet X. The menu has an unusual mixture of dishes but everyone we have tried so far has been delicious. I would personally recommend Saffron Squilla as a great starter.Both fish and chicken curries influence by Sri Lankan cuisine,are to die for!! My son really loved the Spaghetti Carbonara he had. The chef was very accommodating and asked about our individual preferences. The portions are always generous and it's excellent value for the price we paid. We would definitely be going back!!

“Little Gem in Maidenhead”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

Came across PlanetX whilst walking home from the train station. Had a brief chat with the chef and a staff member and they just made the most scrumptious food for my taste. The prawn starter is awesome!

“Affordable high quality food, with clever mixes of flavours.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

It has been noted elsewhere that the chef only cooks what he knows how to cook, and that showed in every dish I have tried there. I have been there 6 times and have not been disappointed once. I found the curries to die for, if you like Sri-lankan curry. It is closer to Thai curry than Indian curry and is fireworks in the mouth.
All meats are cooked to perfection.
If you want starters, go for the Safron Squilla, you won't regret it.
If I had one complaint, it would be the temperature in the room, a tad on the low side in this season.
Other than that, you owe it to yourself to try it at least once. A main dish at lunch time can be as low as £7, and given the size of the portions, the place is really excellent value for money.
Will go again. And again. And again...
