Great authentic Indian food. Don't expect your tikka masala here. This is true Indian homecoming. Meat on the bone and gravy rather than 'curry'. Give it a go. The food is exceptional.

I really don't understand the good reviews of this restaurant - on the night we visited, we were the only table in so maybe we suffered for that. The carrot sticks we were given to start with we're really tasty and the samosas were great. Of superb quality was the naan bread which I enjoyed immensely. Unfortunately, the rest of... More

Nice touch with the water and fruit. Set In a beautiful part of Cheltenham, with everything on the doorstep. Owners were polite, genuine friendly and would... More

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.
