I have visited Planet Hollywood, London both at the old premises in Coventry Street and at the Haymarket lots of times. My most recent visit was in Septemer 2013, with my boyfriend as it was his birthday. I booked the table online before hand and mentioned it was his birthday and could we be seated in the Bond Room. Upon arrival, we were greeted by very polite staff who wished my other half a happy birthday (Good start!!) and we were ushered towards a table in the main seating area rather than where I had requested. The waitress who came to place our order was attentive and again wished my other half a happy birthday. We placed our order, I had the tortillas which were very generous portion wise, other half I think he had steak (can't remember!!) Half way through our meal on the message screen was also a message wishing my other half a happy birthday too!!! For dessert, other half had a knicker-bocker glory and when they brought out the pudding, there was a sparkler on top!!! I had my favourite which is the white chocolate bread and butter pudding with Jim Beam sauce and vanilla ice-cream. The food and a couple of drinks for the pair of us came to about £60 but as I work for the MOD, they took off a discount which made it a very reasonable £47!! A lovely treat for my other half's birthday and a great way to start the evening as went to see The Bodyguard at The Adelphi afterwards. My only complaint is that the merchandise stand is so small and the variety of merchandise is limited.

Zooming from a high-profile 1991 launch and subsequent overzealous expansion, to the American bankruptcy protection courts (twice), the Planet Hollywood chain has led a rollercoaster existence. Indeed, it’s something of a surprise to find that it’s still going, much less that it moved to a new room on the Haymarket in June 2009. The old space was hardly attractive, but the cinematic ephemera and knowingly brash ambience did combine to lend it a certain kitsch quality. This new room, though, decorated but not quite designed, is blandness personified, bafflingly devoid of glamour and charisma. There’s still movie memorabilia, but apparently less of it, and much of what remains is pretty low grade; it seemed appropriate that we were watched during our lunch by a life-size cut-out of George Lazenby. The food’s decent at best (sparky shrimp fajitas) and poor at worst (artificial-tasting milkshakes, dry burgers), with prices reflecting a sense of prestige that’s conspicuous by its absence. The chirpy young staff do their best, but they’re being asked to star in a sequel with all the box-office appeal of Arthur 2: On the Rocks.

Diner in Planet Hollywood just before seeing 39 Steps, it was cool! Or Warm if you prefere : being in this nice restaurant when outside is a cold windy night is just what you need to be sure having a great experience before and during the show.
my husband is in catering and we both enjoyed our experience here. food and service was excellent. clearly the have a great formula and it works. it was very busy and we will return and tell our friends and family all about it. well done
Advertised as "still the best burger in town", don,t bother, its boring and the burgers in BKs are twice as good. For a similar price and more memorable meal try Meat Liquor, not your traditional American diner though!
Had a great time at planet hollywood! food and service was brialliant - especially the double choc brownie sundae! ill definitely be back!
Went to Planet Hollywood with the family and had a great time, service was spot on and so friendly, food was great, specially my steak, and we kept well entertained too, kids loved it. Will recommend it to everyone.
