We had the taster menu which was very good along with the informative explanation of each dish. Good service in pleasant surroundings.

With the onset of online bloggers grabbing freebie meals casting uneducated opinions, taking an abundance of photos on their mobiles, taking selfies with food and texting every thirty seconds instead of soaking up the atmosphere of a restaurant, I decided to leave restaurant reviews alone...More

The service and tastes we enjoyed were both on the superlative side. There are lots of generous taters on the house, in between courses on top.

East India Cafe was established in 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 methods 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
