“Not your usual Indian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Planet India is a refreshing change from the usual Bangladeshi owned and run restaurants that pass themselves off as Indian ones, but actually bear no relationship with the food available in many parts of India. Here the food is all vegetarian, and the menu choice is limited, but all the dishes are very well cooked and very tasty. There is also a great selection of beers available.

Prices are good, and the service is good. Well worth a visit if you are looking something different and more authentic than available elsewhere.

I went here with friends for a birthday celebration, the choice was amazing and with the help & guidance of the owner I left feeling very full having enjoyed every mouthful. Well worth a visit.

“Great authentic food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed our meal very much, not sure of you'd find anywhere else in Brighton where you could get this level of Gujarati food (it is at the level of home cooked food).

The restaurant was very hot however.

Staff very attentive.

Would go again and would definitely recommend!

“Blown away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

I have to say I am not a fan of vegetarian food, so I was apprehensive when I knew we were booked to dine here. However it was amazing.

The food tasted great, the service was amazing and the ambiance was excellent.

I would recommend that anyone who likes Indian food (proper Indian food) should try this place. You won't be disappointed.

“Wonderful food and great service with personality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

Went to Planet India yesterday evening (Saturday). We didn't have a booking but they just managed to find a table for two. It is worth booking first as this place is rightfully very popular.

Food is lovely with a clean, healthy feel to it. It really does feel like honest Indian home cooking and is great value too. A shared starter and two half dishes were more than enough for us but provided a nice mix of flavours which we could share.

Service is great and very memorable for all of the right reasons. Dont expect fancy uniforms here. These guys have got it right where it really matters.
