Great meal. Friendly staff giving advice as was first visit. Chickpea curry is HOT! Light chapatis, fluffy cumin rice .Plus a superb African beer. A must visit whether vegetarian or not.

I don't really recognise what I really eat. Maybe the restaurant tries to be creative in making vegitarian food from all possible ways they can. However, I don't feel the food tastes good. Maybe it is for the vegan to consider, but not for me.

I came here with a group of dear friends. Never been to a vegetarian Indian restaurant before and was a bit sceptical. The flavours were amazing. It's the most authentic Indian food I have ever tasted. Loved it. Great choice of beers too.

Impressed by the reviews on this website I decided to book a table for Saturday night . On arriving i was impressed by the 'cool' decor and how popular it was. I sat down and the waitress ask me what I wanted to drink. I said a beer but ' wheat free' as I have an allergy . She went... More

I've been wanting to try this place out for decades (literally) and I was thrilled to have an opportunity (excuse) to do so. I was pleasantly surprised by the relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the very high quality and variety of food. The Puffed Puri mentioned by another reviewer was truly a masterpiece. We were lucky enough to have a... More

don't go here without booking. I did and the grumpy waitress made us sit on hard chairs in the aisle, despite there only being 3 other occupied tables. Food served without a smile, wine not even opened.

Eat here regularly and have never been disappointed. Food is excellent especially the Pani Puri starter and the Black Chickpea main (very hot). Beer selection also outstanding.

Visiting my vegan son in Brighton meant finding a suitable restaurant. Planet India was a real treat. Friendly service. Fantastic food. Three curry dishes and rice was more than enough for the two of us. The black spicey chickpea was a favourite. We will definitely return. It gets busy so it's a good idea to book.

We went to this curry house as a party of six, a mix of vegetarians, vegans & meat eaters. The food was the star, as you would want. Lovely fresh and spicy flavours. A particular favourite was Peas and Paneer curry. We ended up ordering an extra portion of this. If you like a really hot curry then I would... More
