The restaurant was full to capacity and pleased we had decided to book in advance. The meals we ordered were exceptionally tasty and... More

Average is how I would describe the whole experience, the restaurant is clean, the service is prompt , the price is ok but its nothing out of... More

Terrible service and they expect you to have alchol even if you dont drink otherwise they will consider you the customer who can not afford. According to them they can only serve you with respect if they are not busy ! and on the top they do not provide you with the proper bill !!!

We have visited Planet Papadum on a number of occasions, and have always found the food to be excellent. This time was no exception. The service is always swift and courteous. The only problem we had on this occasion was the fact that it was so hot in the restaurant. We asked for the door to be opened halfway through... More

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
