Encouraged by the rave reviews we went for dinner. It actually lived up to very high expectations. We had the 5 course tasting menu. Each course was delicious. They were happy to substitute one of the courses... King prawn for duck breast. Service was very friendly and attentive. This is a small restaurant with a great atmosphere. Not noisy so... More

We were away in the Cotswolds for the weekend and decided to try this restaurant having looked on trip advisor. I'm not sure how to class it whether it is high end Indian Cuisine with a hint of European or something different. We weren't disappointed , having decided to eat off of the a la carte menu every course was... More

Food, service, ambiance. All ticked and exceptional. Had a great meal here with my fiancée at the time (now my wife). Would love to go back but you need to book so far in advance.

Fabulous and deliberately limited lunch menu - choice of three starters, three main dishes and two puds which instilled confidence that great attention would be paid to making each dish perfect. Each course was utterly delicious and complemented by delicate and superbly flavoured amuse-bouches. The staff were friendly and knowledgable about the dishes, quietly attentive and magnificently professional. Great attention... More

We have always had wonderful food and service at this exceptional Indian restaurant. We are always warmly welcomed and so well looked after. It's upmarket and smart with a wonderful intimate ambience. You have to book well in advance but it's so well worth the wait.

We had the tasting menu, and every dish was amazing. The best Indian we have had. The flavours were so subtle but so fragrant with spices in all the dishes. Not to mention the naan bread, which was so soft and fluffy- Amazing!

We couldn't get a dinner reservation so settled for lunch. Wow! A very unassuming exterior but as soon as you walk it it feels very professional and reassuring. The service was fabulous from the minute we walked in to coats and scarves being put on. Knowledgeable staff and an extremely professional and slick maitre de. Courteous, helpful, detailed knowledge of... More

...this is the best restaurant in Cheltenham, which does say something considering the considerable competition. We (somehow) managed to get a table for three last Friday evening. Bearing in mind that my partner hates "the standard" Indian restaurant food, we were a bit nervous but following incessant barracking from friends we took the plunge and so glad we did. The... More

The only bad thing to report about Prithvi is the months long wait to get a table! Absolutely outstanding from start to finish. Jay has created (and more, sustained) THE best place to eat in Cheltenham. Fantastic attention to detail. I can't wait to go back.

A statement of serenity and calm. A refined and sophisticated approach to dining Indian in an intimate and relaxed surrounding.Prithvi, "Earth or Mother Earth, in the ancient Sanskrit", where mouthwatering food and an attention to detail is second to none.
