Quandoo users have a number of favourite Indian restaurants across Cheltenham. Bhoomi is notable for serving a focused, delicious menu of south Indian cuisine in extremely elegant surroundings on Suffolk Road. The dishes are prepared in line with the seasons and the flavours and food combinations are a revelation. The Indian Brasserie is a very large, sophisticated restaurant on Suffolk Road also, with fantastic tandoori, seafood and vegetarian dishes on the menu, again with a south Indian focus. The Kashmir on Albion Street, on the other hand, is casual, breezy and entirely fuss-free – but the locals say it serves the best Indian food in The Cotswolds!
Those who love spicy Anglicised classics such as tikka masala and vindaloo will find plenty of excellent venues serving up typical and beautifully-cooked dishes with hearty portions. Those who want to extend their gastronomic repertoire will find an enticing array of house specials and dishes of the day, often featuring fresh seafood, fish and vegetarian options. Not sure what to enjoy? Ask the server, see the daily specials list or ask for the chef's recommendation. You'll often discover an entirely new and authentic dish, served to perfection with chutneys, chapatis, naan and salads on the side. Fancy something sweet to follow? Ask the chef if sandesh is on the menu. It's a very sweet Bengali dessert made from cottage cheese, cardamom and saffron – a total crowd pleaser.
The town has a packed annual events calendar which includes dozens of food festivals, such as the annual Food & Drink Festival and Beer Week. This means the Indian restaurants across Cheltenham can get extremely busy, especially at peak times.
