Tasting menu really well thought out and executed. Loved it. Not a chicken tikka marsala in sight though! This is fine dining with an Indian influence- not a curry house.

It's been 18 months since our last visit to Prithvi, but again didn't disappoint. The tasting menu was great. Hopefully, it won't be as long before we visit again.

I really loved the place and was wowed with service and menu. Not a traditional Indian but offers taste of Indian cooking... spices, flavored, portions just enough to indulge! Can't wait to go back!

The food was exquisite. We had the taster menu, subtituting the scallops for the prawns. The scallops were my favourite, the lamb was my husband's favourite. Food was nothing like a usual Indian curry house, but was top notch food with Indian flavours, some quite strong. Staff were excellent, the maitre de lovely. Definitely a return visit. Lovely champagne cocktails... More

Superb food..such a variety of flavours and textures. Staff courteous and efficient..gave clear explanations of each course...always available but never 'hovering'.we had the Taster Menu and I was able to have the same courses as my friends but vegetarian dishes where appropriate.... A must when visiting Cheltenham

Prithvi was a lovely surprise! Incredible flavours, lovely presentation and gorgeous food. Loved all our courses! Try the coconut naan and keep space for the yummy desserts. This is Indian fine dining in the heart of Cheltenham. The staff were lovely and the owner/manager Jay was incredibly passionate about the food and very hospitable. We'll definitely go back. The restaurant... More

The service is so good, it's special. The food is so good the tastes stay in your mouth to enjoy for longer. You get little extras between meals. It's just the best!

Encouraged by the rave reviews we went for dinner. It actually lived up to very high expectations. We had the 5 course tasting menu. Each course was delicious. They were happy to substitute one of the courses... King prawn for duck breast. Service was very friendly and attentive. This is a small restaurant with a great atmosphere. Not noisy so... More

We were away in the Cotswolds for the weekend and decided to try this restaurant having looked on trip advisor. I'm not sure how to class it whether it is high end Indian Cuisine with a hint of European or something different. We weren't disappointed , having decided to eat off of the a la carte menu every course was... More
