Busy, busy, busy, but food was excellent – I have been eating at planet bombay for months now & i go every saturday with friends we absolutly love it........the service was great despite how busy they were, my food was amazing as it is every time i go i feel like they make especially for me!! If anyone loves indian food like i do you should definitely try planet bombay indian cuisine.
What Planet Is This? Rude Service! Rough Interior! – Many years ago, Planet Bombay was our favorite Indian dining destination. It had been a few years, so we popped back in. In the past, the breads, soups, and all veggies were nothing short of terrific. We walked in, had to seat ourselves, which is O.K., but we encounted one of the rudest servers in Atlanta. No one deserves to be treated in this manner. If you don't like your job, change. The soup was terrilbe, he forgot the bread, and by that time we were just over it. And as long as they have been in business, why haven't they bothered to maintain the interior of their restaurant. We certainly are not snobs when it comes to good Indian Cuisine, but there is nothing good about this planet, and it's definitly not Bollywood!
Planet = Great! – I've always liked the Planet - but recently i really love the Planet. The spicy vindaloo and creamy saag paneer are awesome. They make a great naan which is perfect to mop up all the sauce with. The service can be a little slow - but that?s because they're usually understaffed and pretty busy - but they're always friendly. For some reason just in the past year their food seems to have gotten much much better. Maybe it's just me... Anyway I like how they don't automatically assume I can't handle spicy food and dumb it down (like most other Atlanta Indian places do) - All the food seems to come out at the perfect heat for me - consistently. It isn't a fancy, high dining restaurant - the decor is a little rough... But the food is great and like many have said previously ? the Bollywood is always bumpin!
The Chicken Tikka Masala with Naan Bread and a Mango Lassi is A MUST!!! – Planet Bombay catered our wedding (135 guests) in May 2006. Seven months later and guests are STILL talking about how EXCELLENT the FOOD was. Our guests even dine at the restaurant now. When our out-of-town guests come here, they always want to go to "the place that catered our wedding". The owners and staff at Planet Bombay did a fine job in all areas. We always visit "our favorite restaurant" and we definitely recommend EVERYTHING on the menu. Biryani (rice dish) is often looked over by those who are new to Indian cuisine, but it's delicious - try Chicken Tikka biryani. As an Indian, I must say Planet Bombay is authentic and by far the best in Atlanta for Indian cuisine and attentive service.
Wonderful place – I really adore this place, for the lil 5 points area it beats all the other Indian restaurants. The food is really good and the service is good also. We had sagg paneer, with nan.........boti Lamb Kabob, and chicken in butter- but the food was really really good and for most Americans that aren't used to spices i would say get a level 3 spice.
hardly mild – the atmosphere:
i went with a friend on a weekday after work, and for almost an hour, we were the only ones in the restaurant, save the one (slightly sketch) waiter. the bollywood movies playing in the background were a little distrubing, but i'm chalking that up to after-work ADD. the restaurant was dim, even with the natural light from the windows. the bathroom was possible the most disgustng bathroom i have EVER ventured into at a restaurant: i walked in and decided i could wait.
everything we had was extremely flavorful! our entrees took a while to come out, but they came out sizzling! it was very nice to know that they had just finished cooking and hadn't been sitting around drawing flies. my friend ordered the tandoori chicken: it was delicious, but the meat was very hard to get off of the bone. i ordered the chicken saag: i ordered it mild, but it still brought a tear to my eye; it was pretty spectacular, though. the basmati rice was great, and the nan was oh-so-satisfying!
i would most definately eat here again and again, though i would be wary of the sketchy waiter (you'll know which one i'm talking about if you see him).
Best indian food – if you want to eat real indian food go to planet bombay.they have a best tandori and curry dish.my fovarate dish was chic tikka masala and lamb curry.
A Nice Indian Beginner – Me and my friend popped in on Monday, as usual, for a spicy dinner. As one of the pickiest eaters I know, if she enjoyed it must be good, and she enjoyed it.
With Bollywood playing constantly in the background we started with the naan (which is made with chicken here) and opted for the spicy (her) and the next spiciest (me). While not the best we've had, it was still good, with them bringing extra rice and offering a yogurt free to cool our palates.
All in all good, not the best, but okay.
Choose another Indian restaurant – The food was overpriced and underspiced; the sauces were clumsy and artless, containing cheap ingredients to stretch them, including an excessive amount of both salt and sugar. The chicken "cylon" consisted of six or seven small chunks of chicken hidden in a pile of coarsely sliced onions, and little or no coconut as was indicated on the menu. The Paneer Makhani tasted like it was made with ketchup. The nan was gummy and undercooked. My husband's glass of wine was the size of a shot glass. The service was pushy and patronizing. You'd think that Little Five Points wouldn't put up with this. Go somewhere else.
mmmm there is a god!! – The food was sooo good! I HATED indian food until my sister dragged me into the quant little hole in the wall. Thank God I succumbed and ordered. I will definitly be back. Great location, especially after a little five points event! The service was very good. They made sure you were enjoying yourself and were at my beck and call with a smile. The bollywood tv was ..entertaining. It's a bit odd if you've never experienced it. 5 stars
