Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely exceptional in every way. Faultless warm service. Unbelievable food. Everything was perfectly balanced and taste sensation. Better than Benares. Needs a star.

We were gifted a voucher and really did not know what to expect. We could not have been more impressed! The food was incredible and the service was perfect, we could not have asked for better. Prithvi deserves all the 5 tar reviews and more,...we can not wait to return.More

We went on a Saturday evening. As soon as we walked in the hostess was very warm and friendly. As we were few minutes early she took us upstairs in their bar / lounge area. We ordered drinks - Amazing Cocktails, must try. We opted...for a 3 course meal and the experience was Fantastic, I am short of words to describe how Delicious the meal was including the appetisers they served, also the presentation was Excellent. Professional servers. Classy atmosphere with light instrumental music. Comfortable seating. I am sure it is heading for its Michelin star ⭐️ Overall, we had a lovely evening, and would love to go here againMore

We were celebrating our respective birthdays and chose the 7 course taster menu - this was superb and we couldn't decide which course was our favourite as they were all delicious. The staff made us feel very welcome and ensured we enjoyed our meal. Being...given the little gift box with a birthday cake inside as we settled our bill was very thoughtful and delicious. Excellent wine list and drinks menu.More

We had a great evening at Prithvi. The restaurant is stylish and comfortable. We had the 7 course taster menu and all the dishes were excellent. The service was faultless. This restaurant is worthy of all the great reviews it receives.

The best yet! We've been to Prithvi many times over the past five years and have always had excellent food but always came away having been able to put the dishes in order of favourite. Not this visit. Every single mouthful was a taste sensation....As each course came (we always have the tasting menu) we were wowed by the spicing and amazing flavours. It was impossible to pick a favourite. Can't wait to go againMore

We decided to book here after finding our first and second choices of restaurant were fully booked on the date we were visiting Cheltenham. Despite it not being our first choice we had an excellent meal with every course of the 7 course tasting menu...being excellent. The service could also not be faulted so we would readily come here again.More

Popped in on spec to see if there was room for two for lunch. There was - just. We had the lunch menu with a G&T plus a bottle of Riesling. The amuse bouches kept on coming, all of them amazing, especially the doughnut and...the charcoal biscuit box filled with a smooth savoury cream. My cauliflower velouté starter was fabulous and the duck main just perfect. I understand that the ox cheek starter was also lovely. We had a rice and an aubergine side then I went onto lemon meringue and blueberry ice cream and my companion to the cheese. The food here has been consistently exquisite for years. JM Socials now has many more restaurants in Cheltenham so one has difficulty, though delight, in getting around them all but Prithvi is very definitely the flagship.More

This was another excellent meal. We had the five course tasting menu for the first time and really enjoyed it. Some of the amuse bouche were a treat themselves - we particularly liked beef cheek doughnut and creamy cod’s roe parcels . But this review...is really to mention the wine pairing - well worth doing alongside the menu as the combination of unusual but well matched wines throughout the meal was an extra element. Roberto is a very good sommelier, knows his stuff and has a lovely manner when telling me things I really should know !More

Prithvi has now moved in to the hotel No. 38 The Park, Evesham Road, Cheltenham. There is limited parking to the front of the hotel, however, a short walk away is a large car park in North Place.
