Went out for a meal with family and friends. Decor is basic but food is excellent. Vegetarian and vegan diners are catered for with an extensive range of beers. Menu is different and well described. Service is unobtrusive and efficient. We took advantage of the option to have "two half-dishes" which meant that we could sample a good range of... More

I knew this restaurant existed but knew nothing about it and tried it on the off chance. We had not booked and were told they were fully booked already however they managed to fit us both in luckily as 2 diners finished their meal. The atmosphere was very relaxed with soft furnishings on the ceiling making it feel quite cosy.... More

The practice of two seating times (one at 6:30 and one at 8:30) for dinner each evening was new to me, but they managed it well, serving things promptly. If it weren't for feeling slightly rushed when ordering and clearing, the dinner would have been five-star worthy!

Having wandered in to what looked like an empty restaurant early on Wednesday evening only to be told every table was booked, we realised a) this place must be as good as they say and b) book ahead. The food is simply presented, original and full of flavour. Looks and taste like home cooking. And the best bit is you... More

Great formula for Indian vegetarian. Like most good formulas that apply to restaurants, they keep it simple and have a limited menu. Unlike most high street slop curry houses with an overly-long list of myriad variants of dishes (most of which taste pretty much the same) these guys have worked out about six or eight main courses, one type of...

The idea of a vegetarian restaurant normally fills me with dread but I was open to trying planet India as I had been recommended it a number of times and it exceeded my expectations in every way possible. The service couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, the menu was written in a way that explained the food well but... More

Simply fabulous! The menu is fascinating so, as a group of 5 hungry adults, we essentially ordered as many different things as we could sensibly share and everything was truly delicious. This place needs to be on your list of restaurants to visit whether you're visiting Brighton or live here like me. Just as a side note, I'm generally a... More

I'd been recommended this place by several friends and thought we'd give it a go as it was my birthday. We loved it! I'm not a vegetarian but I've never had food like this in any other Indian restaurant I've been to. A really relaxed atmosphere and a wonderfully spacious and interesting room. Lots of photos and and rather quirky... More

I actually opened a Trip Advisor account following a delivery of food from Planet India about 10 minutes ago as the food was so bad, to the point neither of us could eat it. I have given this two stars as opposed to one only because my partner was slightly less scathing than I was and was able to eat... More

We visited Planet India based on reviews from other TripAdvisor ratings and weren't disappointed. The menu was really unusual and interesting and the food very tasty. The atmosphere was great and the service in particular very friendly. Would definitely recommend
