About Five Rivers

Five Rivers takes its name from the English translation of the word Punjab, the geographical region that every fan of Indian cuisine will be familiar with but that means, in the original, ‘five rivers’. This Royal Leamington Spa restaurant does indeed represent a confluence in culinary terms, with a family of chefs coming together to showcase their passion for northern Indian cookery. Recruiting top-notch chefs from the best hotels and restaurants and India, Five Rivers’ Victoria Terrace premises are an unmissable destination for truly unique South Asian cuisine.

Further Information

The owner of Leamington Spa’s Five Rivers was born in the Punjab, and its his knowledge of northern Indian cuisine and the standards required for a world-class restaurant that has led Five Rivers to become not simply another Indian restaurant but a culinary theatre with a carefully curated menu and an expert team of handpicked chefs at work in the kitchen. Guests to Five Rivers Victoria Terrace restaurant are encouraged to dine like Indians do, snacking before and after the main event on a host of mouthwatering and healthy delicacies fresh from the tandoor oven and grill. The dosa come highly recommended – south Indian crepes filled with spicy potato or chicken tikka, fresh coconut and tomato chutney.

Everywhere you look on Five Rivers’ exceptional menu one notices that a great deal of effort has gone into articulating the rich culinary culture of India. Each dish is carefully annotated, with historical and regional insights appended to descriptions of the ingredients and techniques used. The chicken Chettinad, for instance, is described as a fiery curry from Tamilnadu in southern India that is best paired with parathas. Rarely do you find an Indian restaurant so eager to exhibit more than simply a list of curry house staples. The people of Royal Leamington Spa are lucky to have Five Rivers in their midst, right in the town centre in fact, indeed over the river at the foot of the Parade.

Lovely atmosphere, lovely food, excellent waiter. Good value for money, would definitely recommend trying if you've never been. Would have preferred different, authentic music, but hey ho, no biggie

Five Rivers curries are very varied, with something on offer for every taste, from the very mild to the very hot, for those who like meat and those who don't, for those who crave fruity sweetness to those who prefer a drier texture and taste. They didn't bat an eyelid about proving jeera rice, even though it wasn't advertised on the menu. Good lighting, shame about the dodgy music!

Our meal was a birthday present Groupon for a lunch time buffet. This was the first time EVER that we were not presented with a menu but had to have what was on offer which was kept a guarded secret. We didn't know what we were going to get which was very odd. However, the restaurant was lovely and the food very good. We shall be going back as we like eating at lunchtime rather than in the evening. So that in itself is a recommendation.

Lunch was delicious. The staff were very friendly and service was quick. All the meal was freshly prepared to a very high quality. First visit for us but we will definitely be back soon. Price of £7.95 for lunch was good too 😃

Nice modern feel to the restaurant. Staff friendly and efficient. Good food and very reasonable prices. We had a very enjoyable evening. My one criticism was that my own main meal could have been a little spicier, but it certainly wasn't enough to ruin the experience. Will definitely eat here again.

The food and service was excellent! We went at 7pm and they were quite busy (worth booking) but it was noisey so difficult to have a conversation unless you raised your voice like everyone else. It was noticeable when customers were served their food and eating commenced!

Very good value and excellent traditional Indian cuisine. Service was excellent also on a very busy pre-Christmas Saturday night. The best fish Pakoras I have had in a long time and the Madras was perfect and spicy.

The meal and experience was great. We had a bit of an initial communication problem with our order, so what we had ordered as a main dish arrived as a starter, but the waiter quickly rectified that. All in all, very good.

Good restaurant now with completely refreshed interior. Nice new decor very different to the previous style but does give a more upmarket feel. Food is excellent as always and price has not increased much as a result. Overall a very nice experience.

We had a nice meal. The service was great. We ordered two dishes - both rates with 2 out of 3 chillies on the heat scale! 1 was ALOT hotter than the other, so order with caution! It's good though.

The meal was excellent and so was the service. The price of Cobra £4.50 each was a rip off. Could do with a better finale with your bill, not just 6 tiny jelly beans

Excellent food. Although increased staff numbers we were kept waiting for our main course. The refurbishment of the interior is top quality. The new ideas are looking successful.

lamb fillet starter bland, avocado plus chicken, avocado hard basically raw. When asked about the chicken. dishes like the Garlic chicken which I ordered . I was not told that all the chicken dishes were tikka . which should be stated on Menu. the chef must have an easy time if all the chicken is tikka .I will not be returning Very bland and mediocre Indian restaurants in Leamington/Spa

It was a beautiful restaurant but we were been rushed because of their closing time, we got there for 2pm and they were already asking us to leave at around 2:35pm.
