There are many Indian and Thai restaurants in Cheltenham but none compare to that of the Spice Lodge. Located in the former palatial old mansion house on Montpellier Drive, The Spice Lodge is Cheltenham’s premier Pan Asian Indian & Thai Restaurant which offers you a new and exciting taste of the Orient & Sub Continent.
The building is impressive with its Georgian statement and grand entrance. Upon entry you are directed to the reception/lounge area with its comfy seating and bar giving you time to relax and browse their extensive menu. There are numerous dining areas spread over two floors in the restaurant that can seat over 100 covers with function rooms being situated upstairs in large proportioned rooms that show the grandeur of this amazing building.
Most grand is their newly opened Mahal Room (meaning Kings Room), with its bespoke Indian wall art and large chandelier but the focus has to be the huge circular table and Lazy Susan in the centre that is in great demand for large group bookings,
The restaurant offers an amazing range of Indian and Thai dishes (starters, mains and desserts) as well as take away food and Banquet menus for larger groups.
The quality of the food speaks for itself with the Spice Lodge winning the British Curry award twice.
Mohammed Rahman (the owner) and his friendly staff offer diners a completely new gastronomic experience; it’s a wonderful place to take your friends and family for an experience to remember. Each time we have been the food and service has been amazing. Depending on the time of day you arrive the clientele ranges business groups of a lunchtime to couples and friends of an evening. Numerous dishes have been tasted and tried and all met expectation if not surpassed.
Such is the popularity of the Spice Lodge it is always best to book your evening table in advance as they do become fully booked at times especially on their themed event nights which are hugely entertaining. Either phone or book online via their website.
