This place is amazing and very charming. Family run, the wife cooks and the husband is out the front barefoot in his kurta. I cant rate the food highly enough, some of the dishes are real spicy but that's how I like them. Its seriously good value, dirt dirt cheap. My favourite place in Brighton.

Have been here many times and am never disappointed.

Moved from London 6 years ago and really missed my favorite Southern Indian restaurant in Stoke Newington until i discovered Planet India.
Always great service and food - Thank you

I have visited this restaurant many times and each time the food is excellent - fresh and original. No frills adds to the atmosphere which has no piped musak to annoy - just the positive hum of convivial conversation. Be sure the try the famous secret starter - it is fabulous. I am not a vegetarian (no meat served here) but never miss meat when eating here. Staff are relaxed but helpful with what to select. You must book though - on any night it is popular and deserves to be!

I decided to go Planet India from a recommendation off a friend. I do like my meat so i was a little apprehensive. I shouldn't have been.The food was excellent and possibly some of the best Indian food i have tasted since being in India. It was packed with flavor and spice and i didn't miss meat. I cannot remember what the starter was called put it was recommended to me by my friends. It even says on their menu 'if you have been recommended the starter this is the one' so you'll know which one i mean if you go. Try it, it is brilliant!!

The service was good and quick but not very personal. The place, as a restaurant is extremely low key. So do not expect a lovely restaurant setting. But the food makes up for all its negatives. Brilliant.

Strange place. No problem with the food. Average service. Average location.

The main issue is hearing the microwave 'bings' as your meal is ready. Quite surprising a restaurant doesn't actually cook its meals from scratch for each customer.

Be warned.
