“Excellent, authentic Punjabi cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

This was our third time at 81 The Prom and each time the food and welcome has been excellent. This time we asked Rani if they would choose some dishes for us. The highlights for me was the chilli paneer starter which had a good kick, the keema veg, sizzling chicken tikka and the dhal. A new and tasty seasonal option is the pumpkin curry. Another favourite on a previous visit was the lemon chicken. This restaurant offers authentic Punjabi food which is a step above the other Indian restaurants in Cheltenham and very friendly service.

“Fabulous Punjabi food that is unique to Cheltenham.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant is different from any other Indian you'll visit. It's run by a wonderful husband and wife team who work so hard to make your visit memorable. The food is incredible. I particularly enjoyed the spicy popadoms and the keema veg!! I would advise you to tell Rani your budget and just ask her to feed you. You'll be eating amazing food that will truly surprise you. Enjoy.

“Just a great evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We were a party of 10 from work and we had a great evening. We shared several dishes so I got to taste a great range of what they offer - all really good. Service was great too.

“Great food, great service, great atmosphere, great cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

All the staff are helpful & friendly. The food is outstanding and are willing to cater for all needs. I love my food extra 'hot' and my mum cant stand 'hot' food. They were willing and able to cater for both our needs. The chicken and fish pakoras were great along with a fantastic chilli chicken. After a great meal a quick trip downstairs reveals a cocktail bar where the barman knows what he's doing! Such a great friendly atmosphere, and they will make an expresso martini that will knock your socks off! I had a tasty banana split cocktail and it sorted out any burn i still had from my curry.
Definitely worth a look!
