“Fantastic food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The food at this restaurant in exceptional. You can tell from the flavours in everything from the pickles to the main dishes that most (if not all) the food is fresh prepared. The food I ate was some of the best I've ever tasted.
We enjoyed 2 complimentry dishes whilst dining, including a small appetiser with our starters and a side dish with our main.
Great service. Formal, polite and attentive. Fine dining and formal presentation of the restuarant and the food.
I will definitely be dining here again.

“Lovely food and excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is top quality Indian food, as far away from the standard menu / chicken tikka masala as you can get. The service was excellent and the wine list is also very good. It would have been an excellent rating except for the noise levels. Unfortunately we four were sitting between two larger tables and at times it was difficult for us to carry out a conversation. However there is not really anything Prithvi can do about this and it was perhaps to be expected given that it was a Saturday night. We will definitely be eating here again as soon as possible.

“Wonderful Birthday Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

My husband went to Prithvi earlier this year, and recommended that we visit for my birthday treat. Even despite his wholehearted recommendation, I was astonished at how good the restaurant was. The food was very tasty, beautifully presented, and great value at £12.90 for two courses. We particularly enjoyed the amuse bouche. There was just the right amount of attention from the waiters, and the ambience was very good (in spite of it being fairly quiet). The only downside was that we went without cash, and weren't given the option of adding a tip to the charge on our card!

“One of the best meals we've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Beautiful atmosphere, impeccable service and food to die for! Considering coming back to Cheltenham just for that meal! We definitely recommend the fixed menu option, as we got to taste their best dishes and a lot of different flavours that we wouldn't have chosen ourselves. Overall an amazing experience!
