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.

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.
Fantastic food. Went for the banquet for 2 people and was more than enough. Would definitely recommend and can't wait to go back again soon
Exceptional meal best Indian we have had for a while authentic tastes and value for money good service from staff which always makes a big difference
One of my favourite Indian restaurants! The food is top class and just enough to fill but not over do it can't wait to go again!
Very tasty food at a low price. Service is really nice and helpful. Place is not very cosy but still nice, warm and in good location with a view on the old church which is a nice addition.
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.
Located in the heart of Leamington Spa the Five Rivers restaurant offers great food atmosphere and service for small and large groups alike. We took young children and staff were flexible their needs
Five Rivers Five Stars. Freshly cooked to order with a great banquet brought to the table and very tasty. The service was friendly and very efficient.
Great food. Very tasty, without being too spicy and hot. But if you want hot and spicy, it is on the menu. Excellent service too, with plenty of staff to make sure we were not left waiting around And our table was ready for us when we walked in through the door.
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 😃
We went to the restaurant for a family meal when we arrived the staff were attentive and this continued throughout the evening. The food was very good and plenty-full. We enjoyed our evening and will return again next time we are in Leamington
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.
Most delightful place to experience good Asian cuisine, great food served in a lovely environment with friendly staff, we had a set menu lunch can't wait to go for the evening al a cart.
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 food was excellent and a really good example of North Indian cuisine. A change to a dish was made immediately by the highly responsive staff. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
My friend and I went for lunch last Monday and had a lovely meal. The dishes were well spiced without being too hot and we really enjoyed them. Good value for money.
Very good food. Almost authentic India food. I would definitely recommend it to anyone in search of good indian food. The location is very nice as well. Right in the town centre
The food was deliciouse as always, portions very big, the service very friendly and caring. Would recommend to everyone. We go there few times a year and are always verry hapy .
Really good restaurant since the refurbishment with authentic decor. Excellent menu and service from professional staff. We do visit frequently and have recommended 5 Rivers to numerous friends and family.
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
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
Food was excellent.Service was 5 star.The waiters were polite.the surroundings where bright and very clean .We have booked another lunch time dinner today.And look forward to going again
Food was nice with the service good staff polite and friendly. We arrived about an hour earlier and staff helpful and found us table before our booked time.
Very nice good food good location good staff what more can you ask for excellent been there a few times and service is the same every time
Delicious food with excellent service. Staff were very welcoming and happy to help. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family. Lovely atmosphere too!
The food was well presented and tasted fantastic. It was also great value for money; almost too much to finish. And the service was very good.
Very enjoyable experience - lovely food - very attentive waiters and good value for money - can't really grumble about any aspect of the evening !
Very clean and smart restaurant, friendly helpful staff and delicious food. This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. Definitely somewhere to return to.
Food is absolutely out of this world. Surroundings and service are second to none. I will definitely be returning in the near future. Worth every penny.
Excellent Christmas day meal, enjoyed by the whole family. The food was fantastic, as expected, and we were looked after as always. Will be returning soon!
A great curry in nice surroundings, with very good service - very high on my list of Indian restaurants in Leamington Spa. Madras is hot, Fish curry mild but nicely done.
Great menu with something to suit every taste, excellent well presented food, great environment - a pleasant place to have a Ruby Murray, highly recommended
A great menu selection, with plenty of choice. Absolutely excellent food with a great informal and friendly ambience, best ruby in town! Great value too
Visited on a very busy Saturday evening. I cannot fault the food or service. Waiters all very efficient and pleasant. Will definitely be going back.
Excellent food and very positive and attentive service. The starters were just right and popadoms are also nice and fresh. The Nans and main courses are also full of flavour.
Excellent food was enjoyed in a convivial atmosphere. The service was friendly, attentive and non-intrusive; the extensive menu offered good value. A most enjoyable evening.
lovely food, fresh flavours and tasted home cooked which is rare to find in an indian restaurant. Would highly reccommend and will be going again.
Excellent hearty punjabi food, lovely service and a relaxing environment to hang out with family/friends. Highly recommend if want to taste authentic punjabi food. :)
Been here several times now and always get a good service. Probably the best Indian restaurant in Leamington Spa! The ONLY problem is the parking!
Best curry for a long time with different from the usual menu choice. Great surroundings and attentive service. Reasonable prices. Lamb Hyderabadi is highly recommended!
Delicious food, excellent helpful staff. Fantastic choice and eloquently explained on the menu. All the courses presented beautifully. Drinks selection very good including non-alcoholic beer.
Amazing! Great flavour to the food and the atmosphere was lovely! It was clean and beautifully laid out, service was good without constant interruptions. Delightful!
Our experience was good, with prompt service and tasty dishes. A pleasant ambience, but the music was too loud. No Tastecard discount allowed on banquets, only on single dishes.
Very nice food, good service and helpful staff. I have visited this Restaurant a number of times with my family and never been disappointed. Well worth a visit.
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
