    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.

    Everyone loved the variety of food we ordered! Note that you must order rice separately to the entrees and small plates are actually small plates. A wonderful experience of food that we can’t get anywhere else.

    My mom and I tried dinner at ROOH yesterday and it was amazing! Everything that we got was gluten free and vegan! The flavors were immaculate. The kale in the sweet potato chaat was so crunchy and delicious, and the yogurt mousse was the perfect topping Definitely recommend if you want to try a diverse array of flavors!!

    Hands down Rooh is one of the best restaurants in Columbus or any city that I have ever been. The food is innovative, comforting, and delicious. One caveat is that the menu’s items are almost overly simplified by the names and the descriptions listed. Every dish from main course to desserts are so much more complex in ingredients and flavor than described. The first time we went we were blown away by each dish and every time since. Over and over.

    The cocktails were great to begin, the check-in was seamless. We were seated at a high table although we reserved standard table. The food was mediocre, both the appetizers and the main dishes felt lacking in taste. The Naan and the rice were good, the dessert was yum!

    Amazing food! Butter chicken was off the hook. The plain naan was amazing and the sampler platter sauces were incredible. It would have been nice if the music was a little louder, but otherwise a perfect dinner.

    This place is amazing! Everyone is so friendly! The host, Brian, is so bubbly, and made everyone feel welcome! Gi(sp?), the mixologist, is mesmerizing to watch! The drinks are precisely crafted- beautiful and very tasty, especially the AAG AUR DHUAAN. The small bites were delicious! Will definitely return for a full meal- what a fun event!

    Our dining experience at ROOH was exceptional. Our server, Alli, was delightful and offered masterful guidance through the menu. Our small plates of sweet potato chaat and amritsari shrimp were beautifully presented and delicious. We shared a large plate of tandoori salmon and enjoyed every bite which we combined with saffron rice and garlic naan, both of which were light and flavorful. Our only regret is that we waited so long to visit ROOH - we will be back soon and often.

    If you like Indian food, you'll love their menu. The wood progressive is not misused. Very creative, and we didn't even try the dessert items. They even have a very nice Chenin Blanc from India.

    I’d been wanting to eat at Rooh since moving to the area in 2021 and I have no idea why I waited so long! Everything was fantastic. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, the staff is hospitable to the max, and the food….just stop reading this and see for yourself! You’ll be glad you did. Don’t be like me and wait.

    The food is good - even very good for some dishes - but I did not think it measured up to the hoopla about it and certainly not to the prices charged for those dishes. The service was outstanding though

    Food was solid. Some of the sauces seemed the same. 2 naan per order seems a little spare. Otherwise a very pleasant experience. It’s noisy so be prepared to get in close to hear your dinner partners..
