Cheltenham’s Prithvi Restaurant, located on the Bath Road, is inspired by no less than Mother Earth – Prithvi being the ancient Sanskrit translation. The restaurant offer a refined and sophisticated approach to dining, sticking to a concept of understated elegance in every aspect, from food to service. Prithvi’s dining room sets the scene for a very special dining experience, the surroundings calm and understated, painted in cream, tables dressed in white and gleaming silver and glassware and with attractive artworks on the wall. Staff are equally well turned out, gliding from table to table as they serve steaming plates of freshly cooked food and quietly take orders, give menu advice and pour wine. Prithvi’s menu is much more than just simple Indian food. It’s prepared using fine, luxury ingredients with dishes cooked to order and though the basics are rooted in Indian tradition, the execution takes its inspiration from modern gourmet approaches

Recommended by my son who ate here a few weeks ago as a party of four. Decided to book for my birthday and I was not disappointed, every bit as good as I’d been told. Service fantastic and every little detail perfect. The food was amazing, all sorts of wonderful flavours and the added courses were a very tasty surprise. So impressed that we have booked again for mid July.

Delicious, interesting food. Do the tasting menu, very good value and every course just seemed to be better than the previous, if that's possible. Excellent service. Did not want the meal to end!

We rate this restaurant in our top 3 in the UK, along with Le Manoir and Le Gavroche. Service was truly exceptional and the food was sublime. You are made to feel really special. Very rare that you find this level of service and quality of food outside of the Michelin star restaurants. Have already booked to return soon.

Great restaurant and food to match. Impeccable service, lovely ambience for an intimate dinner. The food just zapped in your mouth and left you wanting more. A little pricier then normal but you don't get normal here. Well worth a visit and a place we will visit again.

Had tasting menu, all the food was faultless.only criticism was that when my partner paid the bill with cash, the traditional thing to do is to bring back the change and then you leave how much tip you want to. This time we weren’t given the option, although my partner would almost definitely have left all the change as tip £15 on a £135 bill, it is nice to be given the option

Perhaps a review of the background music might be in order? It is pleasant and appropriate but on a short loop.

Thoroughly delicious food and attentive service made our visit to Prithvi memorable and highly enjoyable. The dishes are a little on the small size and it is not cheap, however there is a creative flair on display from the kitchen and a wonderful balance of judiciously used spices that ensures that the overall experience is extremely rewarding and one that we will both talk about positively and remember for a long time.

This was our first visit and we shall certainly return. The three course set lunch menu was great value at £25 per head, imaginative dishes, beautifully presented and succulently prepared. The service was exemplary. All in all an outstanding fine dining experience which we recommend highly.

We've visited this restaurant on several occassions and have never had a bad experience. The food is always delicious and creative, the staff attentive and atmosphere relaxing.

The lunch menu (£21 for 2 courses or £25 for 3) is a bargain for what you receive. If you're visiting for a special occassion and I would recommend the "tour" which never fails to impress.

I'm a little confused about one negative review comparing this restaurant to a curry house, this is unmistakably fine dining and not anything like a curry house.

My advice would be to try something off the menu which you wouldn't normally pick, I'm sure they will wow you regardless!

Thanks for another enjoyable lunch and we will be visiting again very soon!
