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

                      Always a special treat! Delicious Indian inspired dishes with tasty little surprises in between courses. Much better value for lunch compared to dinner, but always fantastic food and service - the owner always comes over for a chat. We keep going back for special occasions!

                      We had a lovely time here for my daughter’s birthday, the food was amazing and the service friendly, informative and well timed. We had the tasting menu and they were very accommodating regarding requests to switch dishes, we also had a wine pairing alongside which was fantastic and the staff were clearly very knowledgable about the wines. It was mentioned in conversation that it was my daughter’s birthday and they brought out a special ‘Happy Birthday’ dessert after our desserts, which was a lovely touch. Great place, would highly recommend and will definitely be coming back!

                      The food here was great, spicy and experimental, full of flavour and great taste combinations. Service was excellent. If you want some fine dining and food presented well here is the place for you, if you like big portions and beer at reasonable prices then maybe not. A great treat and somewhere we’re looking to visit again, looking forward to trying out the lunch menu also.

                      This is the second time we have been to Prithvi. The first time we were blown away by the service and the food. This time the food and the service were superb again. From the moment you walk in the door you are welcomed and made to feel that you are the only diners there. The staff are attentive without being overbearing, each course that is served is explained, looks and tastes delicious. We had the taster menu and both my wife and her brother asked if dishes could be tailored to their tastes, this was adhered to and was just as good as the original menu which I had. I would recommend Prithvi to anyone wanting perfect food, excellent staff and a lovely ambience.

                      We’ve dined here on numerous occasions over the last few years and despite the appearance of many new restaurants in town this is our favourite one in Cheltenham. Beautifully presented food, exquisite tastes (a take on French cuisines with an Indian influence), great wines and impeccable service. We’ve already booked to go back!

                      The service was excellent. The standard of food was great. The portions could have been a little bigger. Overall a fabulous experience.

                      We absolutely loved our evening at Prithvi - immaculate service, superb food and generally just a lovely, lovely place. Staff are knowledgable and polite but friendly, and it’s some of the best and most interesting Indian food I’ve ever eaten. They also gave my husband a little celebratory birthday desert - a lovely touch! I’ve tried to upload a photo, but it hasn’t worked, so you’ll just have to trust me about what a fabulous place this is. I thoroughly recommend it!

                      This was the 6th occasion we have visited Prithvi during the last couple of years. Just like all of the previous visits, we enjoyed the very friendly, welcoming ambience, and the food was simply divine. Great to see that such high standards are maintained consistently. Already looking forward to our next visit!

                      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.
