“Good friendly reliable restaurant”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Often sub continent dishes are overloaded with fat. That is not the case from my experience here. The Jhinga Til Tinka Ajwain flavoured king prawns, coated with sesame seeds, spiced with mace and cardamom was interesting. I didn’t pick up the mace and cardamom flavour though. Thought the Tandoori mix was a good portion and good selection. We decided to choose our own starters rather than the @21 odd offer for a mixture for 4 people. Not wild on onion Bhaji. The sheek Kebab was fine. One of my usual choices is Biryani. A dish that comes with rice and a separate sauce complete. Good addition of spices and an above average sauce to accompany it. Likewise  the king prawn sag, a flavoursome spinach based dish. 
Excellent service, very friendly and efficient. Restaurant atmosphere was good. I am sure this is a very reliable restaurant.

“Super Meal”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Visited the India Lounge whilst in Cheltenham for the Jazz Festival on the recommendation of one of the box office staff. It was superb. Very friendly and attentive staff, nice modern clean decor, good choice of dishes and the price was good for the quality of the food served, Would definitely recommend it and will go again next year if not before. We had a really nice evening.

“Superb meal”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Last Saturday my wife and I dinned at the India lounge for the second time, the first time was good but the food this time was better , there were cloth table cloths,napkins etc always a good sign in my book that someone cares, the staff are friendly and not pushing to get you in and out as quick as they can, not the cheapest but we'll worth the money

Reviewed 4 April 2014

If you are willing to let the waiters choose what they recommend this is a splendid choice to truly experience varied dishes. Ali will as make you feel very welcome and happy to feed you for a set price. The naan bread is very,very tasty.

“Best Restaurant in Cheltenham”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

I am a regular at India Lounge and cannot speak highly enough of the food or the staff. The food is spot on and top quality every time. The staff are attentive and go out of their way every time I visit or get a take away. Brilliant place.
