This place doesn't look great from the outside however, it is clean with plenty of room. The staff were very helpful and attentive, the food was really good with some great choices. I will definitely return

We arrived at around 8:30 with a party of 7. We were seated and given menus and that is where the joy ended. The restaurant was by no means full, there were quite a few tables occupied but certainly not all. After what seemed like quite a while our order for drinks was taken but these took 15 minutes to...

Called in on Tuesday night after the cinema. Staff was very polite and friendly. The place really looks cleaner and brighter than it had been last time I was there. My friend had never been there before but said how lovely it was inside, more upmarket than some restaurants in the area. The food was delicious I tried a Korhai... More

My husband and I have been eating at the Planet Papadum since it opened years ago whenever we were on holiday in the area and we love it; THE best Chicken Dansak and Chicken Jalferezi anywhere with succulent chicken not the disgusting tough previously-frozen chunks most places service these days. It is also really well priced. Lovely sea views from... More

Wasn't intending to go to this restaurant on our night away in Yarmouth but, all of a sudden, I really fancied a curry, so we went to Planet Papadum. The food was very nice, good quality, nice portions and well cooked. The staff seemed OK to me, checking to see that everything was alright on a couple of occasions and... More

It was our first time back after the 'refurbishment' and nothing has changed. The food wasn't bad, but there was a distinct lack of atmosphere and the service needs to be more friendly and welcoming. We may go back, but with the amount of competition they have, they will need to do something special.

We came here for an evening meal on bank holiday weekend as have visited a few years before. There were only 2 other tables in which was very surprising. I ordered 3 popodum (didn't want to fill up before our main meal) but 5 were brought out. Our food came which was nice but once our bill came we noticed... More
