    First, our servers and all staff were absolutely great. Great service. The Naan and butter chicken were DELICIOUS. The rest of the food was good too, nothing really spectacular. But I’d come back to try a few more things. Interior was super clean, if not a little sterile feeling in terms of decor.

    My wife and I went to ROOH for our anniversary. It was our first time there and we loved it. A very nice restaurant and the best butter chicken we have ever had. Everything we had- the appetizers, saffron rice, garlic naan and dessert were unique and delicious. What made it even extra special were the creative ambiance and our server Brian who helped us with our choices and made us feel extra special- thanks so much Brian.

    We went for NYE. The food and drinks were good but the fish was a little bony and the dinner w/ drinks was $250+ for two. Dinner was about $100 more than I would expect for a similarly situated restaurant.

    This was my first time at Rooh and I was absolutely thrilled. The food was spectacular, the cocktails were amazing, and the ambience delightful!! Our server was so pleasant and the service was quick. Rooh is definitely my new favorite place in Columbus. We ordered Amritsari Shrimp, Chicken Kulcha, and Lamb Shank Nihari. Each item was finger-licking good. Can’t wait to go back and try the other items on the menu.

    From the minute we walked in I knew that ROOH was the right place for date night. Ambiance was inviting , but not over the top. Staff was attentive, polite and helpful. The food, outstanding! Great use of textures, flavors and presentation. Specialty cocktail menu wheel was creative and the drinks were complex , but hit the mark. I wound definitely go back!

    Four of us ate tapas style, and had a fabulous meal where we tasted eight or nine things on the menu. Everything was excellent, this restaurant does an excellent job of being very creative and making delicious dishes and cocktails as well. Our waitress was outstanding, she was able to explain and recommend dishes for us, which just made our dining experience superb. We highly recommend this restaurant!

    This is our second time at Rooh - our first time we were not impressed (this was pre-covid) so wanted to give it a second chance. The staff, atmosphere, and cocktails are fabulous. The food was unimpressive - came to us luke warm, we ordered a dish vegan - it came with yogurt cream when it came back it had frozen raspberries in it and was luke warm. There was little to no spice in any of the dishes, when we asked for more spice we were given chili oil (very good) but then found that we were charged for the chili oil. Will not be returning to rooh. Still looking for quality Indian cuisine in Columbus, Ohio.

    We’ve been to Rooh a few times now and the food quality seems to have gone down while the prices have gone up. Our last visit was also a bit rushed. We were in and out in an hour, which is sad when you’re dropping a good amount of money on a Saturday night out. Just a really poor value overall considering the price point.
