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.
Very good retaurant with high quality Indian food and good service. One of the best Indian restaurant in the Leamington Spa. I really recommend it.
Great decor, lovely food and good service. Unusually expensive for a random curry night out. Will definitely be going back though (again) Lamb tak-a-tak delicious.
Was very quiet on a Saturday night, so the restaurant was lacking in atmosphere a bit. The food was amazing as usual and quite reasonable.
Very tasty North Indian food served in typical dishes Good service, decent choice of wines Dal Makhani is a must! Breads were really good quality.
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.
Some of the food was good. I had high hopes for this restaurant in terms of quality and food presentation, it didn't quite meet my expectations but wouldn't mind going again
Valentine's booking was meant to include complimentary prosecco but we were never offered it. Vegetarian options were scarce compared to meat options. Service was good but was quite cold being sat next to the door.
Very good food and service was great!Though the starters were small portions but overall food was great. Little pricy but worth it. Great location !
The food was not the best we have tasted. The disappointment of the night was the service as we were almost forced to finish off each course. The restaurant was not busy to justify the waiters' behaviour on keeping insisting collecting our full plates.The attitude was slightly rude.
The service was rather strange - not very friendly - all quite serious. But the food is always very good. Really good aubergine curry, however, the naan was a little dry.
Told us when we first arrived that they closed at 10.30, then everything after that was rushed, trying to take plates away before we had finished, hovering around trying to get us to hurry up, the whole experience was poor. I cannot understand when they advertise they are open until 10.30 and then when some people came in with plenty of time to spare they were turned away in a very offhand manner why you don't change your opening hours if you want to close early .
Very cold greeting by acting manager. Chef was very polite. No drinks offered until I asked. Starters came out before other plates were cleared so I collected myself.
I make the time to travel to this restaurant however the service could be improved
Sadly since the re-furbishment there is no buffet as before. This has resulted in a cold atmosphere and a distinct lack of customers. The food was averay
