About Hilltop

A trip to the local curry house is a British Friday night institution, and if you’re in Gloucester, then you’re lucky to have an exceptional exponent of the art in the form of Hilltop. They base their claim at being the best Indian restaurant in Gloucester on a menu that takes in the very finest of subcontinental cooking and spicy twists on other dishes, such as their masala calamari. Their focus is on South Indian and Sri Lankan cuisine – lesser spotted among curry houses in the UK – so make a move out to Worcester Street and discover something a little bit different in Gloucester city centre. Remember to book ahead, however, as they have been known to get crowded on occasion.

Further Information

There are more than a few great Indian restaurants in Gloucester city centre, but not many can offer what Hilltop does. While the majority of curry houses are based around the traditions of the Mughal Empire in the North of India and on the cuisine of Bangladesh, Hilltop are all about the sea and the south: they deal in South Indian specialities and Sri Lankan favourites. The upshot of this is a menu that tends towards seafood, fish and vegetarian dishes, as well as a more liberal use of coconut milk and fruits and a more nuanced use of spices.

South Indian food takes advantage of the some 2500 miles of coastline around the tip of the subcontinent. Try Hilltop’s king prawn butterfly to start, deep fried in breadcrumbs, before moving onto a fish pollichathu, wrapped in banana leaves before a trip to the pan. From Sri Lanka comes Lankan lamb chops, grilled in a unique spice mixture, and an extremely hot devil chicken with green pepper, garlic and lashings of chillies – not one for the faint of heart. Hilltop have a repertoire of classic curries as well, so you can always pick up your favourites, and a vegan menu that is the envy of any in Gloucester. Book a table today and take a trip to Worcester Street in the city centre for a South Indian treat to remember.

Food was great, the Malabar was very tasty but I miss the old Hilltop special. Service was excellent, just the right amount of attention. Restaurant looked fresh and clean. Where was the picture of Everest though? Bring that back!!

Since reopening under new management the hilltop has been a great success, very friendly staff, lovely food and the manager could not be more helpful and welcoming. Highly recommended

Friendly greeting and unrushed whilst waiting for all to arrive. Good food and very fairly priced. Location close to parking is good. Will certainly visit again.

Nice restaurant, good food, generous portions, polite and generally good service. One criticism was that we had main course and no coffee or anything offered afterward, but minor issue and I didn't ask, just thought it was unusual. Otherwise would go there again and recommend to others.

Nice food, decent atmosphere, good value for money, and welcoming, pleasant staff. The menu seems a little small for an Indian restaurant, and I'm not sure why there's a need for a street food section. I was a long standing, regular customer of the original Hill Top, and I appreciate that things needed to change, but I did think the new establishment lacked the wow factor of some of the original dishes.
