Nice row of houses on the Promenade of Cheltenham. Worst Indian (beg your pardon, Punjabi), we have ever been to. There was a party of 4 Americans, and another couple. This was at 8.00 p.m. Absolutely no atmosphere in the room at all. A lady (owner we think) brought us the menu. On the left hand page were the main... More

Really really good food! I honestly cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Both food and service first class. The owner made some recommendations and I loved the chicken pakora. The food is obviously cooked from scratch and was very tasty! A hidden gem.

Had a meal here before going to a show at the town Hall. We fancied something a bit different and it really hit the spot. The food was excellent and the owner was lovely, very helpful in choosing dishes. Great service! Looking forward to a second visit. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

81 delivers style, quality and taste at very affordable prices. The owners are lovely and happy to talk about how the food is prepared and will adjust it to suit your tastes. I had the fish biriyani which was absolutely beautiful - I would definitely have it again! My boyfriend had the lamb curry and really enjoyed it - the... More

Well worth a visit for a home cooked curry with real ale. Fabulous hosts who are more than happy to chat about how the food is prepared. Worth an evening visit for a relaxed curry over looking the Prom.

Ate here while staying at the hotel, restaurant was quiet, I was told it was genuine Punjabi style cooking. It was not your typical 'indian' cuisine. It made for a pleasant change, portion size good, service great, price was reasonable. I'd probably go back.

This is not a typical Indian restaurant. The meals are individually prepared and the owners take time to ask your preferences and likes and dislikes. My husband is vegetarian and usually opts for vegetable madras but here he was persuaded to try a spiced turnip dish with tarka dahl and chapatee. I was a bit sceptical so went for a... More

I've been three times now. Everyone is very friendly and the food is the most delicious Indian food I've ever had.

We were very disappointed. Although we had arranged to arrive at 13.00hrs the owners were not there ( they had gone shopping to B&Q) and we had had confirmation that a 13.00hrs arrival was OK to at least drop off our cases if the room was not ready. The on suite was a joke. There was hardly any gap between... More
