Planet Hollywood

It's all about the movies at this homage to all things Tinseltown. This London outpost of the global Planet Hollywood chain serves a varied, international food menu, with special focus on the USA. Think wings, pizzas, burgers, club sandwiches, steaks, racks of ribs and generous plates of pasta.

The setting provides much of the draw. This branch boasts more than 80 pieces of Hollywood memorabilia, as well as 18 screens playing a mixture of movie clips and music videos. There's usually a bit of an atmosphere to things here, so feel free to pack your party hat. 

Keep an eye out for promotions, special menus and pre-theatre offers, too.

I wouldn't normally visit a chain restaurant such as this, however I was brought theatre tickets as a Christmas present which came with a two course meal. The theatre menus was very limited mainly 1 pasta, 1 burger and 2 salads with only a choice of ice cream or cheese cake for dessert. Although the staff were very friendly - when I asked to have my burger cooking medium rare this was not an option - they only serve them well done. The food was fine nothing special, over cooked meat and brioche bun with a limp salad and an odd mix of chips and curly fries (still not sure if this was intentional or if they ran out of one and just threw in the other). The decor and theme is dated and still playing 90s music however the sound system isn't terrible and with plenty of space and time to enjoy a drink we didn't feel rushed to leave. I would rush back for another meal as there are lots of much better pre-theatre menus out there.

A lot of film memorabilia to see around hanging on the walls, but the food is of no good at all. Burger and chips feel like eating plastic  - no taste at all. A really touristic place with pricey food for no reason.

I think Planet Hollywood is very touristic place, and I didn't really enjoy it. The food and drinks are extremely overpriced and of lower quality. Its a funky place and nice design inside, but for me it was not worth the money. I would recommend going there once, but not splashing out.

Using the time out card-this place gives you 25 percent off. Which is a fab saving. This is basically an American diner, friendly service and big portions. Prices are reasonable, I went for the ribs, which literally fell of the bone and melted in my mouth. It's in a great location and service was fast, so good before or after going to the theatre. There was a school party going on and randomly batman was wandering through the restaurant! It was a bit surreal!


I have to say I was disappointed with Planet Hollywood, especially after being so keen to try it out. I had a voucher for two for £25 and as soon as we got there we were jumped on with the staff asking for the voucher. I sent it to her via email then we were seated and again they asked for the voucher which I thought was a bit rude. The menu was very selected which is due to it being a voucher but I did feel they could have been a bit more generous. We had the chicken wings for a starter and they were horrible with a really bitter taste. The burger was okay but not fabulous and I got the impression the staff weren't too bothered simply because we weren't fully paying customers.


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.


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.
