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

Wonderful vibrant and friendly restaurant, a hidden gem! The food is to die for, and after a long day, quite possibly the best meal I've had!

This restaurant has served one of the tastiest Indian meals that has ever passed my lips. I love this place. It's not flashy or fancy, I'd probably say the outside is garish. The reviews took us here and we have no regrets because every excellent review was on the mark. It has a limited menu which is executed with perfection.... More

Planet India is a fantastic independent restaurant in Brighton. Having frequented the restaurant in Brighton for the last seven years, I can say from experience that the food is consistently delicious. It's the epitome of Brighton with its quirky pink paint, friendly smiles and relaxed vibe. From the pictures of their family on the walls,to the personal commentary on the... More

Popped in with my son and his girlfriend on spec. We tried 4 different dishes, all different and all tasty. My favourite was the aubergine curry. Friendly atmosphere. Maybe slightly overpriced for what you get but well worth checking out.

Four of us thoroughly enjoyed an extremely tasty, unpretentious meal last night and I am planning another visit really soon as there were many other dishes I would like to try. The owner & his team are charming ....my only complaint being the laid back approach was a little too horizontal at times as I would have liked our table... More

Went to this vegetarian restaurant with 3 veggie friends. I am a non veggie but really enjoyed my meal that was recommended by the owner. Very casual dining and nice wine😀

...that line is not my invention, it says that above the door of this wonderful Indian restaurant. Located just outside the busy center of Brighton (approx. 10 Minute walk from the North Laine), this is one of the best Indian restaurants I have ever been to. The hosts are lovely, and everything on their menu has an explanation, so you... More
