About The Ballroom

The Ballroom is one of Cheltenham and Montpellier’s most prominent Bangladeshi and South Asian restaurant, whose superb premises in Bayhill Lodge down Montpellier Street, at the junction with Parabola Road, function as restaurant, wine bar, coffee lounge, party and function venue. The kitchen is headed up by chef Mozlu Miha, who has crafted an a la carte menu that takes traditional Bangladeshi and Bengali-Indian cuisine and gives it a contemporary update to suit the modern palate. His personal recommendation for when you choose to dine at The Ballroom is the lamb shaktora, which cooks lambs with the shaktora citrus fruit that imparts a sweet and sour flavour to this medium spicy Syhleti dish. Prime location and a superlative offering combine to make The Ballroom a popular restaurant that demands an advance reservation.

The service was excellent. The food was the best 'Indian' I have ever eaten. I'm not sure what the building was before it was The Ballroom but what beautiful surroundings to enjoy a meal out. Superb. We will be back 👍

The food was lovely as always. However, although the service was efficient, I am sorry to say we felt unwelcome! The staff were not warm or friendly and our bill was brought to us without it being requested. We weren't asked if we wanted coffee or anything to follow our main courses just handed the bill. This made us leave quite quickly. We all said thank you and good night with little response from the restaurant staff. Like I said, no complaints at all about quality of food and how it was served, just didn't feel comfortable. This is important to me so I think it would put me off going again, even though we have eaten there a number of times before. I'm not even sure if we will continue you ordering takeaway which we have done quite regularly over the past 3 years.

Beautiful building, but disappointing over all. It's not that the food was bad, it was just dull - not enough spice and in one or two dishes quite overcooked. Service wasn't great: they tried to rush us into ordering but then took ages to bring food! So, not an unpleasant evening, but there are better Indian restaurants in Cheltenham.
