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.

8 of us had a table booked for 8pm and although they had us and another large table in the restaurant they had more large bookings arriving after us. The service was dreadful in that the food was slow coming out of the kitchen. They...were processing a lot of takeaways. We ordered and after one hour had only received our poppadoms and our starters were finally served after an hour 45 minutes with our main course arriving two and a half hours after arriving in the restaurant. There had been a vague apology offered but no complimentary drinks just the offer to serve us more drinks. I asked for the food I’d not eaten to be packaged up and after a discussion between the waiter and, I’m assuming the owner, this was permitted, but the raita and salad were not packaged. Some of our party rated the food and others were disappointed. I think the Spice Exchange didn’t give a damn whether we were satisfied or not. I don’t live near Cheltenham and I would not go again if I did. I’d be cautious if you’re going in a large group and be prepared to wait.More

We happened upon this lovely restaurant by accident when visiting Cheltenham. The staff were very welcoming and they catered to our every need. Very clean and tidy too. My husband chose an Afghan chicken dish from the special little menu on our table. He said...it was excellent. I chose Bombay Aloo and wasn't disappointed either, we had lovely fluffy pilau rice with it and a yummy garlic nan bread. The whole meal was delicious 😋 We would definitely recommend this little treasure of a restaurant. We'll done 😊More

Great tasting food and friendly staff. We just walked and the staff happily looked after us. My wife had bombay aloo main main dish and I had chicken afghani and the sauce had black pepper and mustard, it was fantastic as I had never had...it before. We were told the specials are not the normal dishes but the chef experimenting to see how popular they are. The price is good and we definitely recommend to any one visiting and wanting to support an independent business.More

Excellent Indian cuisine. Friendly staff, reasonably priced and highly reccomended. Our show at the Everyman finished at 9.30 - we walked just 4 minutes to the restaurant. Kitchen is open 'till 11pm but I think if you phone ahead they will accommodate you even later....Even better...we over-ordered (as you do) and it was no trouble at all for the staff to package up a 'doggy bag' for tomorrow's lunch. Yummers!More

We are regulars in here, the food and service is always very good. Omar and the team are always lovely, friendly and welcoming, fantastic service. If you fancy some Indian Cuisine in Cheltenham this is certainly the best place to go and never disappoints.

I had a terrible experience in an Indian restaurant in my first night in Cheltenham. Then in my last day, I wanted to try this restaurant. Owners and customer service were lovely. They took the time to explain everything to me. They care about vegan...customers and make sure that they also get properly prepared rich food that is worth the menu price like others. Some restaurants do not care about it. So, the food was very rich and spicy, as I wanted and listened to his recommendation. It was well cooked and delicious that I sneaked the leftover half to my bus putting in a few bags since I did not want to leave it behind. Portions were generous, prices reasonable, unlike this other Indian restaurant in the same area that I rated. Lovely food, people, care, price, and cleanliness. They know how to cook. Also, they were very kind, I sat quite long, just so that I don't wait outside till my bus arrives and they did not rush me at all or did not make me feel bad.More
