About Prithvi

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

Tasting menu gave us a variety of tastes and styles of cooking. Good selection of wines at a range of prices. Attentive service without being intrusive. All in all a very enjoyable evening but of course not cheap!

Fantastic evening meal at Prithvi. We hadn't been for a while due to how busy they are but the booking was well worth the wait! Fabulous tasting menu was enjoyed by us. Wonderful food, service and quality.

We opted for the tasting menu which I would thoroughly recommend as it's good value and allows you to try a number of dishes. This is fine dining at it's best with an Indian flavour to every dish . The food is outstanding and the service is faultless. We had an amazing culinery experience and will definitely return.

 (London)·Dined on 27 October 2017

It was our anniversary so along with going racing during the day & staying the night we wanted to eat somewhere special in the evening. After a bit of research it came down to a couple of choices but we eventually decided on Prithvi & am so glad we did. Not much to look at outside but very contemporary & chic interior. Menu wise you can either do their tasting menu (Prithvi Tour - consisting of 5 dishes including 1 dessert course) or opt for their a la carte options. We opted for the tour & what followed over the next 3 hours was very possibly the most amazing Indian food, albeit with a modern twist, we’d ever eaten. Before the tour dishes appeared there were 2 amuse bouche - there was also an additional course in the middle. Not generally a big fan of salmon but the tandoor baked salmon was exquisite with excellent flavours. The other courses were equally as good; the Muscovy duck breast was perfectly cooked, so tender with amazing flavours, the wild cod with mustard & coconut jus & julienne sprouts (I kid you not!) was divine as was the venison with butternut squash, ginger & cinnamon reduction – again beautifully executed with superb flavours. The desert option of passion fruit cream with mango gel, coriander & honey crumble was a great way to end the meal. But just when we thought it was all over a second dessert course arrived decorated with happy anniversary – nice touch. Yes it’s a bit more expensive & the portion sizes are not your normal Indian restaurant but this is no ordinary Indian restaurant – amazing food, elegant presentation with friendly & attentive staff & we certainly came out full & very satisfied. An amazing dining experience.

We've been dining at Prithvi for a few years and just can't get enough of it! The food and service is always excellent. It's not a curry house so don't expect your normal Indian fare. It's modern European with an Indian twist using lovely Indian spices and presented really beautifully.
We're lucky to have booked a table for next month too!

We had heard a lot about the place and thought our 19th anniversary would be a good opportunity to try it.

The fact that you have to book so far in advance is a pain but it shows how popular the place is, and for good reason too!

Fantastic meal on Saturday with my boyfriend. We both had three courses which were each special and different. Very cosy and comfortable experience we were left to enjoy our meal and not bothered at all. Felt very relaxed. Highly recommend this restaurant and the scallops, chicken main and chocolate and salted caramel desert.

We were lucky enough to visit Prithvi for the second time in a couple of weeks. This time it was for an anniversary dinner and it was outstanding. The attention to detail is impeccable and the food always completely delicious. I don't know any other restaurant, including top London eateries, that deliver excellence time and time again like Prithvi. You just have to remember to book for the next time because it's so difficult to get a table!

We had an excellent experience from the moment we arrived to when we left.
The food was superb and the staff were attentive without being intrusive.
If I were to be ultra critical then I would say that the description of some of the dishes on the menu could have been more in depth but all my queries were answered fully and in detail.
I would not hesitate to recommend.
