The food here is great. We loved the Chom Chom (so good they named it twice...) BYO opens up the Indian restaurant to more people without the expense of booze. Very very loud but if you know about this and still want great food, go!

Very well designed restaurant, couple/party of 4, downstairs, parties of 6 upward to 18 upstairs with separate waiter who are geared for this. The food is just a good if. It better than when I went two years ago, and you can still take your own beer/wine! This makes the average bill per person about £20. I absolutely recommend this... More

Visited on spec on a Thursday evening. Service was prompt and courteous, food well presented and delicious. Restaurant was about 3/4 full, atmosphere and ambience just right. Take your own booze as well, so keeps the cost down. We'll be back.

...for a Saturday night curry. This is no problem to them as the place was full on two floors, almost all groups or parties - so it's not the sort of place for an intimate meal for two! The atmosphere was buzzing if a little loud at times, service was understandably a little slow but the food was worth waiting... More

...on a Saturday night, the place was busy and buzzing. It's not somewhere for an intimate dinner for two, as most of the other diners seemed to be in large groups as well, it was full on two floors so service was a little slow, but hey, we weren't in a hurry and the food was worth waiting for.

Not high end and expensive like some of cheltenhams other offerings, but genuinely relaxed with good quality good! And bring your own booze, which is amazing from my point of view and a sainsburys next door so cobra... More

Well situated for parking on the Bath Road, we had to bring our own drinks which is not unusual for curry houses (jugs of water were provided) I was spoilt for choice with the menu and the food met with my expectations, washroom facilities was full accessible, I've been here a couple of times, I would be happy to return...

I've eaten here several times and always been pleased. The curries are of a decent standard and it's very reasonably priced. Especially as it's bring your own booze you can easily eat out with a bottle of red for £25. The lamb dansak and lamb tikka madras are excellent. Good portion sizes, not masses like you get in some places.... More

We went here last Sunday to take advantage of their special Sunday offer, 2 courses for £11.95. I chose Garlic Mushrooms followed by Chicken Tikka, fab food. Even better that you can take your own alcohol :)
