“Best restaurant experience I've had in Cheltenham, by far.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

Had our Christmas meal here at work. From the moment we arrived (after getting soaked in the horrendous downpour, the staff were warm, welcoming and friendly. They asked us if we wanted any towels as we had got wet, which was a nice start.

Drinks were promptly ordered and given to us, and the staff could not have been more attentive, topping up drinks, recommending things that went well together etc etc.

May I say that this is not your standard Indian "feed up". So if your expecting dried out poppadoms and Chicken Tikka Masala with chips, this isn't for you. It is a gourmet Indian dining experience.

During the time spent looking at the menu, the staff provided us with an amuse bouche, which set our mouths watering for the rest of the meal.

I had the beef and parsnip dish, and it was absolutely beautiful.

Everything from the starters through to the dessert was amazing, and really worth the visit.

Decor inside makes you feel really at home too.

Will definitely be returning, and trying something else from the diverse menu.

Well done Prithvi! A breath of fresh air in this gastronomic town.

“A classy restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

Fantastic service and wonderful food. This is a cordon bleu Indian restaurant, great for a treat. That being said it is not as pricey as another Indian restaurants in town. This is worth every penny.

“Deservedly No1 in Cheltenham.”

You want a Cobra and a plate full of popadoms then go somewhere else..... And while you're enjoying that I will be returning to Prithvi to enjoy a lovingly prepared meal, great service, carefully selected wine to compliment the cuisine.
Most people think they know what to expect from an Indian restaurant..... When the amuse bouche arrives you will reconsider.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2013

We found this restaurant to be every bit as amazing as previous diners had said.
The service was courteous, yet friendly and the food amazing!
We had the 5 course "Tour of Prithvi" - every course was a treat to the taste buds.
I would recommend this for newcomers to this highly impressive restaurant.
Enjoy!
