4th time I have been and Im blown away every time. Do not think curry house when coming here. It's a completely different, authentic experience. Amazing service, great atmosphere, and most importantly, incredible flavours! I can't recommend East India Cafe enough. Only very slight disappointment...More

Had the 7course taster menu which was delicious. Staff very polite and well informed about all the dishes. A very pleasant evening although rather long as some courses took a while to come.

We were intrigued by the taster menu and were really looking forward to trying it. It was amazing, lots of different flavours, colours and textures, all beautifully presented. We will definitely go again. Thank you.

Second time at East India Cafe, this time without the full tasting menu, but just as much fun as the first. Waiters a bit overattentive, but not enough to mess with the evening out

East India Cafe was established on November 2015. We opened the restaurant with the philosophy of bringing the techniques of mum's cooking into professional setting. We started researching the era of British Raj in Colonial India and brought those recipes back to life here in Cheltenham using modern cooking method and our own twist. Our principle is to serve tasty food with a piece of history with it. This is not just a place to take care of guests hunger but also a place to come and relax with great variety of drinks and an evening of experience. For us research and innovation is an essential part of what we do with distinct attention to detail. We passionately believe in innovation and merge science with the art of cooking. Welcome to The East India Cafe, Cheltenham
