Bangalore’s Best Food Restaurant

This place is the only one is Bangalore which reminds me of Spain or Italy. The food is great especially good with its freshness and flavour. By far it's the best Mediterranean restaurant I have been to in this city. Weekends are mostly crowded so its good to book your table in advance or end up waiting. Love the Arabian music with the beats sets your feet tapping. Nice to visit on a Sunday evening with family.

Worst Place to Visit

Worst Place I have ever been to...Complete waste of money and spoiled my evening..

NO good food
There was actually no variety and I can count only 2-3 dishes nothing more than that. Delay in serving

NO good service
Service is a big failure

NO Ambience
Looks good only on photos...Not worth the money

ultimate food experience

This is one of the best restaurants for real good food. Me and my family just walked in there by accident and were pleasantly surprised to find the real cool decorated restaurant inside. The soft spanish guitar music playing. We settled in the spanish tent seating area and soon a waiter was getting us mineral water, handed us the large menu and suggested we try some mediterranean dishes. The food was really great and tasty

Pathetic

It upholds the tradition of pathetic service on Outer Ring Road, leading the pack even ahead of stalwarts like Phileas Hogg and Taste of Rampur. After being to this place, the roadside tea shop would feel like a five star hotel.

Absolutely hapless management and waiters who seem to have just doped up and come out for service. We saw guests from every 2nd table shouting at the waiters. Food was getting served on wrong tables. Water was served a whole half hour after taking the seat. High volume, low fidelity music kept blaring on the "Sufi" night with some random clown giving "live" table beats to music playing off pirated mp3 USB stick. All this when at least three to four guys seemed to be there pretending to be owners/managers (one guy pointing to tables, another roaming in a dracula coat, another one who's duty was to hear the guests' shouting).

Arguably the single worst fine-dining experience I've had in Bangalore. I have read people giving low ratings and heaping pretty high abuse for places which are actually quite OK - but trust me, this place really sucks and is best avoided like you'd avoid a visit to your in-laws.

Great Buffet Lunch

We were a corporate team and went there on Friday for Lunch. The spread was really cool must say salads, starters, mains we were in for a real treat and ending with the ice cream was really chill. Must go place for their buffet spread with over 40 items.

Visit Only if You Are Devoid of Human Feelings

Where do I start? Pathetic service, crappy food, dumb ass waiters or kick-in-the-crotch experience? So many reviews and so little being done about it.

I Suggest They Should Shutdown

One of the worst place ever visited. Table not laid even after the food was served. And the best part, the roof started leaking because of rain. And as mentioned earlier in one of the reviews, the manager went in to hiding when called for. I think the owner should think of something more than just saving money, at least a good roof SIR. Just by calling yourself a seven star group does not make you one. Please reconsider closing this place down. Would never visit any of your 3 restaurants again.

Tasty Food and Amazing Variety

I took my parents to Ruh last Sunday for lunch. At first we were surprised at the super cool Spanish music playing. It is well done up and some people who arrived were taking photos of the place! We settled to order from their Mediterranean menu. We ordered Barra Kabab, Malai Kofta , Mutter Methi Malai really delicious must say. Every single dish tasted unique and was tasty. The Ghosh Kalimirchwala was especially good, I have had quite a number of food experiences in India however there are very few places in Bangalore where you really get the best and Ruh is one of the best with international quality. The staff took good care of us and helped us have a good time. Their parking place is dingy and dark. We had to call them to put on the lights but otherwise we had a great time.

Ruh reminds me of tasty delicious mouth watering food - would always go to Ruh for my weekend Lunch and Dinners. Also I have suggested Ruh to my colleagues who love the place's interiors and decoration and one of my friends who are a couple had also booked a candle light area once - they said they just loved the place and food and service. Thanks Ruh

A Great Place for Food and Wine

We were a large group of 23 members and were having a send off party. One of our friends suggested Ruh since he had been there with his family many times. Though their reviews were not so good, still most of the members decided on Ruh. We called and booked a place and also the lady who spoke to us fixed us a set menu with liquor. We were taken for a ride with their cool interiors. We had a great time and left late with memories of our dear friend leaving us. Sure a hot spot for diners.

Ruh Is Not A Place For A Firends Get Together

Really a very bad place if you are looking to spend time with friends. The staff is so oblivious of your presence. The hospitality is so bad that they don’t even care to serve drinking water when guests arrive. A pathetic management. The manager goes hiding in to the corner when things go wrong and everyone tries to pass the buck around and does nothing to ease the problem faced by customers. They ask you to accommodate and adjust when they fall short of space, but will never adjust on their tarrifs.
I will recommend a corner snack wala or a Sagar tiffin place above this restaurent any time.

Very nice ambience decent food.

I went to this place with a date on a suggestion from a friend and boy that was some date. This place is very exquisite and I love the shacks that they have.. Must say you dont expect this good a place near Belandur. The food is not all that great though they have a mix cuisine of arabian, mediterranean and indian and it is little heavy on the wallet. But I would recommend people to go here for the ambience the food is just the bonus..

Excellence At Its Best

Ruh is the best place for really good food and really fast service. We were a group of 35. Went there on a Friday evening and they also had live music playing. We had booked in advance. We had a great time there. They had an entire section reserved for us and they called it the tent seating. Really comfortable sofas. We all could sit together. Water and the starters came in immediately after we sat down. The murg dum biryani they serve is amazing.

Awesome Place

We were told that Ruh serves some of the most authentic and a wide variety of Mediterranean, Persian and Lebanese dishes and some great Indian dishes too. And I have to say I was not disappointed. We were a group of 10 people and we tried out loads of stuff from across the menu. I have to say it was a fantastic experience. Right from food to ambiance to service, Its a must visit. Can't wait to go back again.

Terrible Experience

After hearing all good things about the place, we went for a team dinner, around 20 of us.
The place looks great with a very nice ambiance but the service is awful.
The waiters all looked like they had no clue what they were doing, they didn't understand what we were asking for, they couldn't serve the food well and they just seemed extremely ignorant.
We went there at around 7:30 for a buffet, and they made us wait till 8 before the first set of starters turned up. They took around half an hour to even serve us water.
Among the veg starters was one paneer dish and 2 varieties of potato, both of which could have easily worked as aloo-sabzi instead of a starter of the real kind.
The non-veg had 3 types of chicken dishes, one of which wasn't even cooked well. There was no other meats available for starters.
After this finished, which was by around 8:20, they made us wait another hour before the main course was sent in. We sat there for an hour, before the first set of food trickled in.
In spite of repeated requests, they kept asking for 5 mins.
This took so long, that most of us left even before the desserts came in.
All the bad service and waiting left a very bad impression on all of us about the restaurant.

3 Different Ambiance Under One Roof.

A real good Mediterranean food , we tried a lot of stuff. Pizza platters (baby pizza ) pita varieties are really good.I liked the decor ,a complete white at the entrance , and once you get in, the arabic decor . The food is authentic and being close to my office , I recommend some1 close to belandur. Try it is worth it and its cheap.

Celebration time

Tasty and delicious and a place that is inviting, be it the waiters dressed in cool jeans and white shirts. This is definitely a place not to miss for special occasions. They also have a candle light area with water surrounding and this place is for special occasions. The place gets really crowded weekends so better to book. We had a great time at Ruh with the best of Mediterranean and Indian food.

First we were given a lame place for dinner when they charged 1.5k only for seating... Later we got 4 starters which were not tat good.... After sumtym they got on my nerves... Told to clear plates and spoon nd they did... later for half hour or so... We neither had cutlery(Fork spoon nd knife) nor water to drink... Nd we were hunting for sum server or manager to get their attention... Nobody was around... then there was a guy with full english accent (looked like a owner/partner) and i explained him politely tat i had no water & cutlery... then he went inside the kitchen after few mins.. He is murmerring loudly using 'F*#K' word in front of customers...
Then the real torture... we ordered chiken with orange juice & sauteed with taquilla... OMG!! It never tasted like orange nor tequilla or nethin... it was the worst thing i ever had... same plight was the couple next table... they ordered sumthin with lamb.. nd we got it for our table... all were cluless... then I passed the plate to next table... Then came the grand item!! The bill... Rs.4000/- its not about money... but this place was never worth even for free!!!! PLS DO NOT EVER THINK ABOUT GOING TO THIS PLACE!!!!!

Big let down!!

I had heard some negative reviews of this place, but with intrepidly I went anyway. At first the decor of the place strikes you, as it is quite unique, but in bit you realize it is really garish. We went for lunch and sun was hitting the front door which had colored glasses making the entire inside red! Coming to food, it was really bad. Bland and tasteless. Before anyone concludes that I may not have a taste for Mediterranean/ Lebanese food, let me assure you that I do, and have experienced excellent food of these regions. To top it all its so expensive!!! There are places in Bangalore, roadside type and small restaurants that serves much better fare than this and so much cheaper. A big thumbs down from me.

Tasty Mediterranean Treat

Went to ruh on a Saturday evening with my family and found the place exhilarating one can get lost in its charm. The place I found was realy good for relaxing especially if you had a hardweek and want to refresh and rejuvenate yourself. A place to get hooked to with irresistible mediteranean dishes. Dishes that are out of this world are veg crostini platter made of sun-dried tomato pesto, mushroom and marscapne, babagnush, balsamc spinach and feta, humus and kalamat olive, black olive tapende. Non-veg crostini platter made from chicken, smoked salmon and horseradish, tuna and cucmber, shrimp and jalepno, rosemary lamb with hummus, sweet mustard chicken with smoked cheese, prawn, papaya and saffron chicken. Non-veg mezze platter made from hummus, babaghanush, tabbouleh, cacik, mukhallil, lamb sambousik kibbeh lahme, dijaj-bil-zatar served with pita bread and lavash chips is really mouth watering and tasty. The other must trys foods are orange and olive salad, smoked chicken salad, garlic bread with smoked cheese, chicken wings, chicken shawrma, smoked chicken and sun-dried tomato paella is another treat for those who have never tried it before. And the best way to complete your experience here is the hot chocolate fondant or tiramisu. Requested them to give me a copy of their menu and they did. If your serious about getting some real good food with some excellent service then you cant miss ruh.

Food quality / service sucks big time

I really wonder how does this restaurant could survive for so long. i will any way speak to owner of this restaurant .
We went for team outing, around 15 people. we choose to go for buffet. now i can narrow down my feed back in below sections.
Ambiance:
---------------
Do not what one can like about that ambiance. as soon as we enter to room, room freshener was used. I hate this kind of place, after paying so much of amount . going to such a dirty place, not my cup of tea.

Behaviour:
========
It was not at all professional. the way there manager was talking, it was as if i am having free lunch in TAJ, where they are telling me, its your choice whether you want to have or not.

one of the worst place i have ever been in bangalore. i am a person who eats out for at least once in a week, and that too at good places.

here we choose fixed menu Buffet. buffet was suppose to give me freedom of what i want to eat and when . but here they restricted the order too .

Food quality:
=============
Truly speaking if it would not have been team outing, i would not even have paid a singe Rs there. i would have just walked out.

you are charging as good as BBQ nation, and food quality was bad compare to any Govt hostel.

i hope some one from hotel group will see what you are serving there.

Great ambiance and Chicken Saagwala!

The first time I went there was on a team lunch (the team is pretty big - 25 members) and I have been there a couple of times after that.

The very first thing you notice is the ambiance, its different..very..! The place is divided in two parts, one of them (the part you enter first) is designed to look like an Arabian setting. The second portion is closed, air conditioned and is lit with dim red lights.

The restaurant is on the terrace which has been very smartly designed to give a middle east sort of a vibe by using sand for floor (yes sand !!) which bites if you are not wearing fully closed shoes (ladies beware), is not ACed, somewhat of a mood spoiler for some (not for me). There are tables and chairs and also small Arabian styled seating arrangements under a couple of shamiyanas, where you can sit Desi - Sheikh style :p

The second portion is closed (or third if you include the lounge sort of setting they have just at the entry) with a proper ceiling (instead of a very high tin roof in the first portion, which I loved btw..), air-conditioned and has these beautiful hangings on the ceiling. Dim red lights and swings to sit on, just closes the deal...as far as ambiance is concerned.

Food? Well, my favorite here has been the Saagwaala Chicken, I had it in their buffet and it is not mentioned in the menu. So you may need to ask for it separately. Chicken Achari is also good. I am yet to try a dish in mutton. But the saagwaala has so far been the highlight. The prices are a pretty high for the but ambiance and food makes it worthy.

As far as the buffet is considered, the starters are good (only BBQ Nation beats them at the starters), the main course is goood (read amazing) and the desert must be good, but you are rarely let with any room to have 'em..!

Service may seem a little slow at rush hour, you may need to push them a little!

Did I mention the Arabian music..? and the big projector they set up during the World cup? So, weather you want to sit on a chair, a swing, or a carpet...Ruh is the place that offers you the most vibrant ambiance and some very good food !!

Worst & Over-hyped - Nothing except ambience...

We went there few days back for lunch. The ambience was good and there ends all the good part.

The waiters were disinterested to take order, as if they are doing us a favour by serving us.

Food was even more pathetic. Stale fish & Worst Biryani.

On top of it, it's 'highly' over-priced for that food. I think the restaurant was over-hyped. The only reason they are still surviving must be because they are near to all software offices.

NEVER VISITING AGAIN !!!

Ruh - Good food, Good Ambiance -- PATHETIC Service

Went there on a Saturday night.
The ambiance was no doubt amazing. Different themes !!
The Food was good, ...
but the service was PATHETIC... (spoiling its image)
....
On a Saturday night they had ONLY Kingfisher beer, no other variety - This shows their preparation for a Weekend !!!!
On our request, they agreed to get Carlsburg/Budweiser from outside - within 5 minutes. However it came after 40 minutes, surprisingly not Carlsburg but Tuborg :(
If I tell you in detail - These 40 mins were terrible - multiple orders were being taken by multiple attendants - & everyone giving their suggestions on non-availability of carlsburg/Tuborg.
....awful.....
During this waiting time, they filled our table with all the starters... unfortunately by the time beer arrived, half our appetite was already full...hence we could have only 2 pint each :(
.... The attendant seemed to be all trainees, with majority couldn't understand English... we say something, and they respond completely different !!!
...
I wouldn't go there ever again, rather would suggest Barbeque Nation Jayanagar far better !!!

Corporate Chill Out

The Best Restaurant I have been to so far for real good food, good service and a great time together. All my team mates thanked me for choosing the right place for our team lunch. As we entered, the welcome drink, a chilled refreshing mock-tail was served to us. We relaxed and took time looking at the interiors and were discussing about it. Really amazing interiors. The person behind the interiors sure is very creative. The manager walked to us and explained politely that our food was all ready at the buffet counter and we could get our plates and serve our food. But we were waiting for all our team mates to arrive and then start our lunch. Listening to soft music playing we were busy chatting till all our gang arrived and then soon we settled for our buffet lunch. Really well prepared hot food from starters to main course and as we were all hungry we were filling our plates to the brim. Overall a very comfortable place to enjoy corporate lunches.

Highly overpriced

I had heard quite good reviews of the place and decided to try it out with a couple of my friends.
The place has a very nice ambiance and looks really cool but i am afraid the good things about the restaurant just end there. The food is okay-ish at best and more often worse. The quantity also is extremely poor comapred with the prices and what's more the description in the menu hardly matches the dish served!!

The first time i went there we had Mediterranean cuisine and it was way below par. I am not a fan of mediterranean food so i thought i will give this place a second chance but alas I shouldn't have done so. :(
The second time we had Indian food and though the quantity was okay the food was also just that- okay. Nothing good about the food.

The only thing going for this place is the ambiance. Please dont visit this when you are hungry for good food or want to have something nice to eat.

Name's ruh but there's no soul or substance

Had visited the place few months ago on hearing about its 'different' ambiance and setting. Found it to be way too over the top and kitsch for my taste with the service and food leaving much to be desired too. Had some out of town friends over last who're inclined towards over-the-top places so hazarded a visit again. Unfortunately, the experience was even worse that the last. Started on a bizarre note, when the server gallantly offered use their prize table that had couch chairs slung from the ceiling as swings. Politely declining the 'swinging' dining experience, settled for the regular grounded avatars. Ordered drinks - run of the mill stuff like whisky and beer - which took forever to arrive. Surprisingly, the soup (which was quite exotic in description) arrived in absolute jiffy - guess the kitchen had prepared a big batch in anticipation. Finally, after multiple reminders, the drinks arrived to find that the whisky was served in a tall collins glass! If u charge Rs 200 for a small100 pipers, atleast serve it in the right glass. The lamb chop appetizer - for Rs 400 - was all bones no meat.. In no mood for further adventure, stuck to regular butter chicken and daal for main course, which was served in decent time and tasted all-right too.
All-in-all, disappointing fare definitely not worth the price. Though must say that i may be a minority voice as both times, found the turnout fairly good in spite of being a weeknight - full of big corporate groups sipping on colorful cocktails and hukkaas. Ample proof that the IT hey-deys are back again..

Ruh ba roo!

Well, was hanging out at a friends place in Bellandhur and he suggested we go to Ruh... I was told it is on the lines of Jalsa.. but is not - the theme and the cuisine ..was "Mediterranean".For a warm summer evening this place is really nice. The ambience is quite comfy . The pricing is slightly on the higher side. The mojito was not too bad .
The setting was quite peaceful and relaxing .
I have been just twice -
The inside with the lights etc. is also pretty . It is a typical deserty setting ... with arabian music.
Will I go there again - YES :)

Can't get worse..

Normally I prefer to inquire about a place and read few reviews before trying out a new place..however this dinner at Ruh was planned by a friend on his birthday..upon entering the ambience looked good..

their service was very slow right from the beginning, however we were not in too much hurry so we didn't feel the delays those guys were making..the menu card looked like few badly xeroxed pages bundled together..with a fine-dine restaurant, that is something you would never expect..

starters/drinks were ordered and then one of my friend ordered tequila shots after checking from the menu (which specified 30 ml)..the shots came and then we noticed that the quantity looks too high to be 30 ml and we checked with the guy who had served us the drink and it was indeed 60 ml..we clearly told we had ordered 30 ml and asked an explanation on why he had brought 60 ml..he went in search of the guy who had taken order and took atleast 10 minutes to come back to the table with him..that guy was totally unapologetic and acted as if it was our mistake that we didn't specify 30 ml..actually this is cheating when you mention in the menu as 30 ml and bring double the quantity without asking for and charge the same to the customer..

when we ordered the main course, i checked for a basket (for ordering rotis/naans) and didn't find one..checked with the guy who was taking order and he took order for one basket..when it came we realised that it was 10x2=20 pieces of bread for 6 of us which was too much after having taken starters/drinks..again the ordering guy was not available and we checked with some other guy on how many pieces in the basket..reply was the most amazing one,"it depends, need to check with the person who has ordered". he again took some 5-10 minutes for this query and came back with a reply that the basket is if 10 roti/naans..in the meanwhile we had checked with another guy who had given us a figure of 6 roti/naans in the basket and we were just thinking what to say to that guy..

anyways, had to waste some food and then asked for the bill..it was over-charged by some 200 odd rupees..we showed him the bill, then he went for correction, made amendments and came back with still an incorrect number..we sent him again and had to wait for around 10-15 minutes totally to get the correct bill..

surely a pathetic expereince from a supposedly fine-dine restaurant..my ratings are given below for my expereince at Ruh..

Ambience - 8/10
Service - 2/10
Staff's responsiveness and behaviour - 0/10 (bad, bad, bad)
Starters - 7/10
Food - 5/10
Pricing - 4/10 (extremely expensive for the service/quality of food..

i believe lot of people just go to Ruh for paucity of options on Sarjapura ORR..whatever be it, this place should definitely be avoided in all cases..

Amazing experience!

Ruh was an amazing experience for my friends and me. The ambience and the service were really good. The food was very indulging. We were a group of 8 people , had a tasty and filling meal and a great time. It wasn't too much on our pockets and it was definitely worth the food. The starters are simply delicious.

Good ambience + Ok food + Over priced

Ambience is really a breath of fresh air (literally). though i am not sure if this place is worth going in afternoon (or may be they are not even open in afternoon). in night the ambience is nice and very different.
food is 'OK' types, nothing great that you would want to come back to. and i think it is over priced too.
so if u wanna go for some special occasion to a very different place and do not expect a great food (OK works for you) then do visit

Horrible place, not worth the money

Perhaps one of the worst restaurants I've been to at this price level. The food was atrocious. We ordered grilled King Prawns and what we got was the smallest prawns available. So instead of charging us less, we got 4 more of the little ones and charged the same (Rs. 575). The cocktails were horrible. My wife ordered two, the first one was watered down so we complained and the next one was just pure liquor. We ordered some chicken(with bone) that was so oily we had to wipe our fingers after every bite. We also ordered some fish kebab which wad made from fish sausages which I can imagine where they got from. All this at the same price at more high-end eateries and it makes you wonder why any body would go there.

Forgot to mention - It was raining, so we heard it all during the evening. The corrugated roof that they have makes sure you hear every drop.

Overall, the restaurant is not worth it unless they reduce prices by half. I had a peek into the kitchen and there doesn't seem to be a qualified chef inside, just some boys making up stuff.

And if you are still going there, stick to the Indian food. There are lesser chances of you feeling utterly duped when you get the bill. Not a regular poster on buurp, but quite the foodie and this restaurant made me want to write this review first thing in the morning.

Nothing great about it

Just back from a team lunch at Ruh ! Well, the ambience is different with sand, gravel and the red lighting ( which made me a little uncomfortable)
We ordered buffet for the team. Were served 3 veg and 2 non veg starters which were ok, nothing exceptional or wowie ! No glasses were filled with water ( we ordered for mineral water), cutlery was not in place and we had to ask each time, some guys dint have plates as well, no napkins in place ( is that fine dining in boutique restaurant ?) So in all, service was very bad. Main course was pretty boring and regular Indian curries .. Worse part was the dessert, just some cold kheer with a gulab jamun .. My team did say that a la carte was better, I have no idea on that and would not try it either !

Weird Interiors, Poor service

We went here expecting a nice ambience based on what had heard, but we utterly disappointed. The setting is weird to say the least - in my opinion. Reminded me of Jalsa on the ORR, but not that well done. I don't like those type of interiors in general.

The service was pathetic on a weekday lunch even when there were very few guests. Very disappointed. The food was OK though.

Great Food at Ruh Restaurant

My colleagues and I have been here several times and the crowd that follows really gets us going. The food here is great and the service is timely. The only real issue is with their parking as it is quite small. I would rate this place extremly high on ambience, the Arabian seting inside is marvelous with desert sand as flooring and imagine tents inside a restaurant it excellent idea.

The place to be in Bangalore!

Wow, I'm surprised such a great place has such bad reviews...but judging by the comments, most seem to be from valentines day...and i wasn't there, so cant judge, maybe it was a one off bad day, and i'm kind of glad i wasn't there...cos i love this place. anyway i visited Ruh on the 18th, and I was not expecting that kind of ambience...like there is nothing like it in bangalore or even mumbai (which is where I originate) sooo beautiful. I love arabic food, and have spent some time in dubai and egypt...I had the lebanese mezze platter and the stuffed vine leaves, and then the Lamb in Red wine sauce (a spanish dish) it was really delicious and the arabic stuff was pretty authentic. Me and my friends just totally chilled out in the sand section outside...and shared a hookah! service was good, music was chill out arabic lounge..which was really nice....my only critism is that they put in a few bollywood tracks in btwn...and when i asked why...the waiter said that alot of ppl were requesting it...not that i dont like bollywood...but the spanish and arabic music suited the place much better...would certainly recommend this place, as they also do indian food (which i didn't try btw) so you can even take people with you who dont like to experiment and just want there dal roti. Definitly try this place!

RUH A RESTOBAR

Truly awesome Place RUH RESTAURANT – Never knew such a place existed in Bangalore. Definitely a place for families – me and my family had a wounderful time there. It was our 21st Wedding Anniversary and we chose just the right place to celebrate. We got to know about the place through one our friends. The Murg Dum Biryani was really tasty and special for this occasion but the raita was little sweet. The service was quick and music was very different – they were playing Arabic songs.

BEST IN BANGALORE

We went to this place called Ruh on outer Ring road and left the place satisified with the food and service. The interiors of the restaurant are really spectacular and dazzling with lights, which all looks stunning and pretty. Must say this is one of the best places in Bangalore to dine out with family. They never keep you waiting unlike other restaurants, food is brought to your table real quick.

Crappy Service

I read reviews about this place on this website and others and decided to give it a try. I am really sorry to say that the whole experience of going to Ruh was a big disappointment for me and my friends. I made a booking for dinner around 9 pm. When I reached the place a lady from the management said that even though we had made a booking we would still have to wait. I thought that it was no big deal for its difficult to judge how long a person occupies a table and was waiting outside with my friends. I was made to wait till 9:20 after which the waiter told that there was a table available. As soon as we went there and took a seat, the lady from the restaurant rushed in and told us that it was a reserved seat and that we are to wait again. We reminded her that we had booking for 9 to which she replied that she was not sure who took our booking. Basically she was openly challenging the fact that we had made any reservations at this place even though she had acknowledged the same when we had walked into the place. She kept insisting that the table is taken and that we wait outside. She was extremely impolite and I was extremely surprised at the manner in which she was treating us. I dont have a clue about the food there but the service that we were offered was sub-standard, piss poor to be more precise. I was really sad that I took my friends to Ruh for I really cut a sorry figure in the midst of all this drama.

Special Moments

We have been here so many times and on so many occasions and some precious moments to remember. Like my wedding anniversary, my daughters birthday and so many other occasions when we visited with our family and relatives. The place itself is interior designed for a grand occasion and they have three different sections mediteranean, arabian and spanish section to choose from. Most of times we choose the spanish section inside because the tent seatings are really comfortable, swing seats for my kids to play. The sand area too is nice with pretty little colored lights hanging from the ceiling. Coming to food we love the murg dum biryani and gulab jamon with ice cream some of the really good dishes are paneer tikka, lahori subzi seekh kebab, murg ka shola, murg malai tikka, paneer korma, diwani handi, mutton kofta curry, murg aachari. We have also tried their mediterranean menu which also has some very well cooked tasty dishes like orange & olive salad, chicken & garlic soup is yummy, shish tauk & chicken wings are a treat for the senses. The tasty main course for mediteranean dishes are vegetable tagine, sweet corn & mushroom crepes and smoke chicken & sun dried paella are all a treat. They also have a liquor menu but since we are a family stayed completely off the liquor menu, a glass of chilled coke too cools the senses after a great meal. Also their service I cant forget to mention must be given a medal cause the waiter are all on the run getting your food quick and never forget to get the mineral water served first at the table. Parking out there is not a bit of a problem, though they have valet parking, most times we have parked our car on the main road itself, easy to get in and drive off. To conclude this is one of the best and most talked about restaurants well atleast on the sarjapur ring road and surrounding marathalli and Bellandur. I feel its a must visit restaurant in Bangalore.

Ruh Restobar - Perfect for Family

RUH RESTAURANT - A Perfect place for FAMILY!
I accidentally went there with my friend after work and when I got there I thought Wow surely I must bring my wife here to see this amazing place. So me, my friend along with our wives visited on Sunday. As we entered we saw large families entering – like something special was going on. My wife said that she had never ever seen a restaurant like this before, bourdain tents, candle lit area, swing seats. We sat in the tent area inside the Spanish Section. The music was low mellow some Arabic song was playing we didn’t know what – but the music was blending in to the ambience. The Food was appetizing – yummy – delectable to say the least – and the cocktail drink that followed was energizing. I would advise ‘Ruh’ to people of all ages, for people who want to spend time with loved ones, people who want the perfect the date, and people who want to relax with a huge group of friends.

Tasty really Tasty

You want to really yourself and have great yummy food just go to ruh on bellandur outer ring road and you will get the best of indian and mediterranean food along with great cocktails and mocktails. we were a team of 45 members and booked prior to going and found the place really packed on a thursday evening. Really quick service, easy place to park, kind and polite waiters, everything was on our table. This was the best experience, compared to the pathetic restaurants we had been to earlier.

Thank goodness I didn't visit on Valentines Day

Surprised at the title, don't be, because I certainly DID NOT have an experience even remotely close to what the previous 4 reviewers had. Not sure if VikramK visited on V-Day or not, but the other 3 certainly did. The experience I had at this place was completely the opposite (I visited on the 9th, a good 5 days before V-Day).

At the start, let me lay out a few facts - I learnt that the place is only 6 weeks old, so it doesn't matter if the owners are the same as other well-established joints, teething troubles will always be there (personal opinion, not gospel truth - if you believe in the gospels :) ). In any case, the ambiance of the place is great, and in all honesty, it really is something you'd want to drive across town to see.

The food. It's very good (not withstanding the troubles on V-Day). Since I'd visited the place as part of a review for a tabloid (we don't reveal to the restaurant that we're reviewing the place until after we pay the bill, thereby maintaining anonymity and credibility). As part of the review we also take people who know something about the cuisine, so I had two French and a Spaniard as my guests. One of the French nationals had also lived for long in Morocco, so she knew her Arab-Medit food pretty well. We had an al-Harira soup (lamb and vermicelli, with lemon and cinnamon), hummus, spinach croquettes, a Spanish omelet, and spicy potatoes. We also had Sangrias and red wine. The hummus and the soup were the best - superb. The croquettes and spicy potatoes were ok, nice, but nothing great, while the Spanish omelet lacked authenticity, but otherwise was nice.

For our mains, we had a lamb tagine, a non-veg mezze platter, a veg moussaka, a seafood paella, and meatballs in tomato sauce served with rice. The tagine was superb - the best meal of the night. The meatballs and the moussaka were also pretty good, although the foreigners found the meatballs a little spicy while my Indian palate thought they were fine. The paella turned out to be more of a risotto, and so we gave that a pass. The mezze platter was very good.

For desserts, we had a baklava, a pastry puff dish, and a tiramisu, both of which were good. So all in all, the guests (who gave their verdict on authenticity and taste) gave this place a 4 on 5 for the review in the tabloid, and I'm using the same rating here.

Very bad food with low quality staff

We went on a weekday. After calling waiter multiple times he came and took order..served dirty water with something floating inside it. Then we were served with stale paneer tikka and chutney. On informing the waiter started eating it instead of tasting it and told us this is how we make it. We had no option to walk off from the place. I guess the place is going to shut down really soon. Must no no.

Good one- infact with a difference

We visited this place for dinner yesterday. The ambiance is different and quite good one. The music played was good as well. Now about the food, we had Tandoor chicken which was well prepared and then Lamb Tangine which too was very good. Their tiramisu was a let down though Rabadi Malpua was quite good. Service was very good. Overall a very good place. We'd been to Jalsa and this was far better than Jalsa. Planning to do a re-visit some time soon.

Different setting, Nice food and a small surprise

We chose this place as a small reunion of sorts. It is easy to miss it from the outside as it is located on the top floor of a non descript building on the service rd near Bellandur junction. But once inside, you are transported to a different setting all together.
What strikes your first are the high ceilings. This place has 3 sections - the outermost seems to be lounge. Its done all in white. The central portion has a more arabic look with a shamiana kind of seating and sand flooring. The innermost part has a more medieval touch and a very bright red lighting which may or may not be to everyone's liking.

They have a distinct menu for Indian and Mediterranean food. Mediterranean menu is a misnomer - its a mix of Spanish, Italian and mid-Eastern. Decent choices though and very elaborate. Same with Indian.
The drinks menu has some nice cocktails.

We ordered a sangria pitcher. This concept is unique because unlike a pitcher, this is not served in a jug but you will get 5 glasses priced slightly lower than the price of 5 orders. We asked him to split that in 6 and he agreed. Was it less in quantity - will never know. We also ordered Mojitos which were nicely done and a vodka-basil-watermelon juice based cocktail which looked too pink to be a man's drink. But strong basil and fresh watermelon juice really took this drink to a new level.

We ordered a Jumbo non veg platter. For the cost, it was generously provided. All items in the platter were good esp. the lamb which was tender and juicy. We had chicken wings which were very different from what is served in American establishments. They had a herby marinade and no skin which gave it a very different flavour.
We also had variety of main courses which I cannot comment on. My dish was Chenjeh Kabab which was lamb kababs in a bed of rice. The lamb was very tender - I was later told it was lamb mice with walnut which gave it amazing flavour. It was well cooked. The saffron rice was simple but tasted heavenly albeit too much oil for my liking. Servings are small but good for one esp after a big round of drinks and starters.

Service was prompt though they sometimes got orders in weird sequence.

That day happened to be the 1 yr celebration of the restaurant. We stayed till the end when the staff was celebrating. We were offered cake and tequila shooters which was a nice way to close the evening.

This place is rather expensive. Cocktails are 300 and above. Most dishes cost 200 and upwards. Food and ambience is good but not sure if this place should charge such premium prices. Then it only becomes a special occasion place.
Something of an issue in Bangalore where good food comes at too high a price.

Worth every penny spent

Ruh is a beautiful place to spend an evening with your family, I go there regularly with my family, we always settle down in the tent seating area, the waiters there know us well since we visit often, hence we get our service fast. Their food is the best part to talk about, the murg ka soola, and murg dum biryani all cooked to perfection and servied hot makes for a satisifying evening. They also have Mediterranean food which I have tried too over all a great and lovely place to visit.

The Worst Restaurant Experience of My Life

Visited: on 21st Feb 2010

An open letter to the owner of Ruh:

Thank you so much for opening this restaurant. I am lost for words. If your restaurant weren't there we would never have realised how good other establishments are.

We spoke to you and even then we were dished out the most horrible service imaginable.

Gripes:
1. Confirmed a reservation at 11 in the morning for a table at 8.30 pm. We had requested a specific table. Upon reconfirming the booking and coming right on cue we were ushered into a table we did not book.
2. We were finally given a table about 45 mis in
3. We had to wait for 1.5 hours for a menu to arrive (after even asking the owner)
4. The service was so pathetic that when we told one of the wait staff to kindly pick-up the pace he has the audacity to have a quip
5. My friends cola drink tasted anything but cola
6. Water wasn't served before food arrived
7. Cutlery was not given to more than half of our party
8. The table cleaners don't turn unless you have told them so for 5 times


May be if the food was to die for we would have still borne through all of this... but unfortunately it is so average that my eyes revolt.

Ambiance ...10/10
Food... 6/10
Service... what service?

I hate this establishment. The non-chalance of the staff and you the owner is unbelievable. Carry on like this and hopefully you have to shut the door soon.

I gave it a 1 star because burrp wouldn't let me mark in negatives. And i absolutely had to write a review about our horrid experience. This place is going into my avoidable list.

What the ****!

In spite of people bitching about this restaurant, I heard so much about the ambience that I decided to visit the place post the reviews. But the ambience barely made up for the bad experience I had at this place. If anyone's posting here saying they had a decent experience post valentine's, please take a reality check based on the following :

1) Ever heard of a restaurant giving you cutlery that's been badly washed? YEP! There was a weird smell in my glass and on the plate.
2) The service was pompous and irritating. If I'm paying a 4 gran bill, I wish the restaurant would atleast have the courtesy to address a drink in the right manner. I got something I didn't order.
3) Food is served cold. And tasteless.
4) What's with the water arriving 30 minutes after we're fuming at the table?

I could go on with a big bad list, but what really put me off was discovering the fact that they're promoting this place based on a leverage they don't have! I called for a reservation for Jalsa and they told me that Ruh is a new offering and I should come over here or visit the new bar at Chandni Chowk called Teeka or something. After this awful experience, I learnt that Jalsa was never a part of this awful group and separated a long time back. No wonder it's one place that hasn't gone bad amongst the three. It's one thing to lie and another to feed off the leverage of something that's not yours! WOW. I'm never going to this place on principle alone, apart from the bad service!

Great team outing

A team outing in ruh is the most amazing experience what with their lavish buffet lunch from the soups to starters and main course to the desserts it’s a mouth watering treat for the senses. We were a team of 18 guys and 6 ladies looking out for a nice place near by our company and somebody suggested ruh and everyone was like yes, that’s a really great place to enjoy and relax, since it was a friday and knowing that we could relax the weekend, we weren’t in a hurry. The waiters bought in the menu and aah the mouth watering dishes turned up on the table soon after. All of us stopped mid way our conversation and were busy munching away at the tasty lahori sabzi seekh kabab, paneer tikka, murg ka soola and murg gilafi kabab for the starters section. We really were filled when the murg dum biryani came in, and still didn’t want to miss the malai kofta with plain rice was just amazing. Ending our meal with the kulfi falloda was just perfect. Overall a great experience, the best place for group dining and families.

Nice Place , Average Food

It's the kind of place you instantly like on walking in. The sheer effort that has gone into creating a thematic ambience is impressive. Greek, Moroccan and Middle-Eastern i am told. I particularly liked the tables with swings for seats.

The service is OK. I has to send in a couple or reminders for my drink, but my husband got prompt refills.

The food is very very average. The portions , however, are substantial.

We has 2 of the appetizers between us and had to pack some of it to-go. The cold Mezze platter is good. The Tzatziki was yummy, the roasted eggplant was divine and the Hummus was excellent. But the hot platter could improve. The spinach pie was luke warm and has very little spinach in it. the spanakopita was weird with just cheese in it. The Falafel was like Masala Vada and i cant remember what else was on the plate ( that explains it, i suppose)

The Pizza platter was the other dish we ordered and that was utterly unbearable. First of all, it was not Pizza. More like Bruschetta. No , Wait - it was like toppings on biscuit. We had one each, packed the rest and had to discard it the next morning. I feel a little guilty being this rude about it, but i really think they should take this off the menu or call it something else. I felt very deceived.

Would i go here again? - I think so. There is a lot i haven't tried yet and it's a nice place to generally hang out. They have a big screen - so is probably where i will watch some of the IPL matches with friends.

Doesn’t GET better than Ruh

Me and my colleagues 36 of us really had a wounderful party at this place Ruh on Sarjapura Outer Ring Road. Incredible RUH on outer ring road – the food, the interiors the service everything was just superb. Believe me this restaurant is going to be the number one restaurant in Bangalore. We loved the Chicken Shawarma, the Tawa Fish, and the Virgin Mojito was really cool.

Different from the regular

Something very vey different in Banglore, that’s what it is. Three diffrent sections – Spanish, Mediteranean and Morocan section of the restarant. Magical Interiors - All you families give this a try becuse its way too different from the regular oota madi place. Just a short drive from marathalli or even from Koramangla, no parking hassles – just pure entertainment.

Terrific Place!

I have been dying to go to this place for nearly six months and finally found a like minded friend to accompany me. We drove to the Outer Ring Road, parked the car just outside the restaurant (they do have basement parking though) and trotted to the lift which took us to the fourth floor and Ruh. There, we were met by the Maitre D' who enquired if we had reservations and after ascertaining that we didn't, amiably escorted us through the very large restaurant space that Ruh has. As we ambled along behind the waiter, my friend and I looked all around us with great interest, at the different types of seating available and a falling sheet of water. Finally, we ambled into what seemed to be a more formal dining area - with different types of chandeliers, large polished mirrors and very interesting seating. After carefully looking all around - at some "tent seats", swing seats and king and queen sized seats, we sat down at a table having the king and queen sized seats. A waiter politely presented us with the drinks and food menus. Not wanting a drink, I omitted to look at the drinks menu and instead, settled for a Spanish style soup which we decided to split. For dinner we decided on a plate of Kebabs, Mutton Biriyani and Bhurrani Raitha (my favourite type of Raitha). The soup arrived fairly quickly and tasted delicious. No sooner were we done, than our efficient waiter removed our bowls and served us our dinner. The food came up to expectation and I enjoyed every mouthful. Feeling too full for dessert, we paid the bill, which my friend proclaimed to be "very reasonable" and left. I loved the ambience of Ruh. Absolutely amazing. I also liked the food which was well cooked and the service from start to finish was exemplary. The music was in keeping with the theme of the restaurant and was at an enjoyable volume. The crowd wasn't that great but the place and the food more than makes up for that. Definitely a place to return to - time and again, and to recommend to anyone looking for a good, classy and not too expensive dining experience.

Absolutely Awful!! don't even get me started!

Valentines day u expect to be treated specially and boy oh Boy did Ruh treat its customers specially!! I make a reservation well in advance for a table of two but surprisingly my name isn't even on the list when i arrive! Little did i know this was just the beginning of a whole lot of misery to follow!!

After having to wait out for 15mins (in spite of having booked a table!!) we finally get a table on a "sharing basis", a table for eight, split for three couples to occupy, again this was on a take it or leave it basis coz this is all we have to offer.

Secondly, i ask for the menu once, twice, third time i walk up to manager, she acts all concerned and then goes back to stuffing her face with food with her family and FINALLY on the fourth time i actually get a menu but wait, this is only the drinks menu!! By this time i was at my wit's end waiting to just blow the whole place apart. Mercifully we got the menu the fourth time after i literally yelled at the waiter!

We got the msg then itself to place the entire order at one go and just sit tight till the food came (hopefully on the 14th itself!) After having placed the order, a good 25 mins till the food finally arrives and again without the cutlery, i mean what the hell man seriously?? are u people like for real?? anyways i just wanted to get the hell out of there so i ate as fast as i humanly could, and asked for the bill mid way through my meal knowing fully well i would have to wait another millennium if i were to ask for it later!

I dint bother waiting for finger bowls so i went to the hand wash and to my delight, the entire restaurant has just one single restroom each for a guy and girl??? Hello??? did someone misplace the blueprints while constructing the place??

Anyways i was just glad my misadventure was ending soon and i was finally getting out of such an unruly and unorganized restaurant. If i could rate it less than 1 star i so would have!!

You'll completely ruined what could have been a memorable Valentines Day for not only myself but every other couple who made the mistake of going to Ruh on that night. The disappointment could be felt through out the place that night. My sympathies to each and everyone of you who were out there on that night!

Great place for food and wine

Been to this place more than 5 to 6 times and still want to go there with family and friends because of the cool ambience, the water seating and tent seating really puts you at comfort and you start enjoying the pleasant evening there. I would recommend you to go with family. The food is amazing tasty the murg dum biryani especially. The crowd too is good there every evenings.

Themed setting & good food.

You will walk into a very thematic atmosphere here. It is slightly hidden from main street & located on the top floor of a work-in-progress building. But upon entering Ruh, a very distinct ambience awaits you. You will experience very rich colours, arabian feel with modern & ethnic combination.

There is middle eastern, Indian, Italian, Spanish & Mediterranean selection for cuisine. The portions may seem a tad small some but they make it up with the variety. The food is great for all palates.

Service is a little inconsistent. The crowd here is of every kind you might think of.

Pricing is on the upward scale but all in all .. it has my vote for a good place for return trips on occasions.

Ruh - a horrible experience

Hi Folks,

We had been to team lunch today to this place Ruh on Bellandur junction .. We were there at 12:45 and were waiting for starters till about 1:30 the service was horrible .. even cutlery had to requested 10 times before we could get any .. the Roti were on our plates for 15 minutes before the curry would arrive. All dishes arrived half full and weren't sufficient for half the folks the rest had to wait for the next service slot. The waiters really did not care and said "This is a usually affair why are you guys making a fuss out of it." However I need to point out that the folks at Ruh called back and have apologized for the issues. They have promised to look into the same and be better equipped hence forth.

Best in the Outer Ring Road/ Sarjapur area

While looking for restaurants around Sarjapur, I came across Ruh. I checked for the pictures on Burrp and it looked good to me. A few colleagues and me went for their buffet lunch. We called and made a reservation and were told the buffet costs 425+ taxes. Before we went, we weren't so convinced with the pricing. We had decided to go see the place and the spread and then leave if we did not like it. But, when we walked into Ruh, we were all just taken aback by the ambiance. We were asked to take our seats and a waiter walked upto us and told us the buffet is a service buffet where they serve us on our tables. When he showed us the buffet menu, we were quite impressed, since they had a huge spread. The food was very tasty and the staff very courteous. The place was packed, yet the service was fast and efficient. We were very cynical about visiting this place since there aren't any good restaurants around Sarjapur, but Ruh has changed that opinion. Me and all my colleagues loved the place and had a great time. Totally worth the money. Great to finally have a good restaurant in this area. Keep up the good work!

Awesome Cocktails

We'd visited Bangalore Central mall for no particular reason and we came across Ruh. An elegant and must say very romantic place, the staff here are just average. We were looking out for a good drink followed by a good meal and we got more than what we bargained for. We sat in a tent, royal tent this was a cool corner to chat and a waiter decided what we ate and it was good. Though their music was loud they reduced the volume on request. The also have a good variety of cocktails, we were in a mood to try different drinks. All in all a good drink, good food and romantic place. Ruh is one of the best places to be in.

A Change Atlast

Ruh is one place everyone must try. For the Food, music, interiors. Though the service is slightly slow, their food is tasty, delicious and satisifying, it could be lunch or dinner. I usually go there for dinner with my family, since we are 8 of us we always choose their inside spanish section, large comfortable sofa seats and kids can play around while we elders can sit and chat there through dinner. The only problem is the main road where the flyover is being constructed since it is not yet finished the road itself is so crowded with vehicles, so getting to ruh is a little bit of moving through traffic. Overall a Great Restaurant

All that glitters is not Gold!!!

I went to this place for lunch with my friends & found it very impressive initially. Perhaps, an exquisite decor is the USP of this place. But the feel good factor shirked as soon as we started our lunch. Tomato Shorba was bad. Starters were ok & the main course was average. This place is ideal for spendthrifts as everything is overly priced. More than the food, one pays for the ambiance. All in all, this is not an option worth exploring for Veggies unless you don't mind a big hole in your pocket for "not so great" food.

TASTY FOOD & DRINK

I took my family along with me to this restaurant called ruh, its very close to marathalli. I was stunned by their ambience, it had three different sections, arabian and spanish. the place was all lit up with lights and spanish music was playing. The best part was the Food and the Drink, all served in style, we enjoyed their chicken biryani and washed it down with a guavitini. This place is the best I have been to in Bangalore, I would definately recommend you to go there atleast once. Only thing is that the place is sometimes overcrowded.

BEST OF THE BEST

Ruh, the place looks so grand, it lightens up your mood from dull, boring to delightful and exciting. It is a state-of-the-art restaurant which boasts of an elegant, well designed and striking ambience. Well Ambience is the 1st thing you would notice. Though we were not so hungry we were not disappointed at all with the food. Ruh for us was the Best Food Joint with tasty North Indian and Mediterranean dishes. Ruh has specialized in quality meals and food here is served very fresh at very reasonable price. Everything there is very orderly and neat and tidy and the service is very good, waiters understand you perfectly. The place is located on the outer ring road not very far from marathally or from sarjapur. Perhaps you too should try this one for a change.

Ruh-de Rascals

I'm usually an extremely optimistic and understanding blogger. Considering I run a small startup myself, I sincerely empathize with other entrepreneurs and their challenges; but what I can't put up with is a dis-service.

Service, taste, responsiveness, optimism and a smile; all the qualities which give Ruh a miss. My wife made a reservation for the evening on Valentine's day (14 Feb 2010). We arrived, as scheduled, at 8:45 pm.

Despite a reservation, the promoters of the restaurant made us wait, and when they did offer us a table, it was with a take-it-or-leave-it attitude. I eventually had to sweet talk the lady and finally got ourselves a nice cosy table where we could sit next to each other. But little did I know that our woes were just getting started.

Everything that was placed on our table had to be pleaded for. "Please clear the table", "Please get us some tissue", "Please get us our plates", "Please can you help us with some cutlery". It took them close to an hour to bring us our drinks (Virgin Mary) and our starters; and yet they went wrong with mine. Who in the 21st Century can go wrong with a Virgin Mary' my grand-mum can make it without assistance. Maybe my grand-mum should train these novice losers.

The only good thing going for this, excuse for a restaurant, is it's decor. It's unique, very different, impressive and a definite dekho. Maybe they should convert it into a museum or a gallery; atleast they won't have disappointed customers :)

Our food was finally brought (45 minutes late), but it took them an additional 15 min. to bring us the crockery and cutlery. Or maybe they expected us to eat our of the serving bowl :)

I've been to bad restaurants, but they all pale in comparison to how horrendous our experience here was. What shocked me was that these are not startup restauranteurs but have already launched 3 joints previously (Jalsa, Chandini Chowk …). How can a seasoned restauranteur go wrong! That too on one of their special days - Valentine's Day?

What added to our misery was that they decided to play loud music in their Al Fresco dining area with just one crappy speaker.

I believe being in the service industry, if you can't provide a decent service to the customer, then you are behaving rudely and have no right to be there. Stop wasting our money and more importantly our time; and 'please' get the hell outta-here. Bangalore can definitely do better without the likes of RUH.

Quick Look
—————-
Food - Tummy-ache!
Service - What service?
Ambience - Very nice
Overall - Go-to-hell!

Horrible Service

I have been there 3 times thinking the service would have improved but NO... It keeps getting worse. I had gone there for team lunch and came back dissapointed with service. The ambiance is over the top. The have forgotten its not the ambiance but service and quality of food that matters in a restaurant and both happen to be bad.

Excellent ambiance, good food & pathetic service

I had read the reviews of this place before I visited. So I was expecting a good ambiance and food. The restaurant did better than my expectations.

And since I had read reviews before I visited, I was not expecting much of a service. Restaurant did not disappoint. Their service is as pathetic as before. They have learned nothing from the 14th Feb fiasco. So If not anything else, the restaurant is at least consistent and fair in their dismal service.

I went on a Friday night in a large group (10 adults, few kids). We made reservations in advance. The person taking the reservation was confused and did not know what he was doing. I figured out why, when I reached the restaurant later on.

On the way to the restaurant, I had to call them to locate them exactly. Again person manning the phone was confused.

They have valet parking. Reached the front desk and saw utter confusion and chaos. No one was there. A kitchen worker passing by picked up the phone and took reservation for somebody. Another time another guy passing by told us to wait while he gets somebody. So essentially, there is no dedicated person at entrance taking reservations or ushering in guests.

After a few minutes, we walked inside and got hold of the manager, who lead us inside. We choose a nice corner for the group.

Everybody disappeared and we needed to hunt the waiter down to give us the menu. The waiter after that did 5 rounds of our table, each time bringing a plate and then a spoon, and then a fork.

At this point, we told the waiter that we were not happy with the service and he needs to step up. After this point his service improved a lot. He was much more attentive.

We had Non-veg platter, sea food platter, Malai chicken with cocktails and wine bottle.

Platter was excellent. Only complaint was that crab in the sea food platter was small and had almost no meat. Cocktails were good.

For main course we had dum biryani, chicken and bread basket. Everything was good. Dum biryani was good. It was slightly spicier for my taste, but still excellent.

The total damage came to upwards of 12K. But it was money well spent.

If their service had been good, I would have rated them at 5 stars. But still I would be visiting them soon.

Not as good as hyped

Food is average.
The ambiance is okay, rather it looks like an under construction building is modified to give a exotic look. There is no AC and the ventilation is terrible.
Slow service.

Not worth for money especially when they charge 425/- . Disappointing !!

Beat a hasty retreat

This is an ideal haunt for those with deep pockets and who believe that higher the price, necessarily better the quality of food. I hungrily stepped into this place on a hot sunny afternoon and had to beat a hasty retreat viewing the right side of the menu which had figures that any low cost airlines will charge for a short domestic trip! Yellow Tadka Dal at Rs. 200+ really takes the cake! That is the price of 2 kilos of Dal that can feed a family of 4 for a full month! No further comments to make on the quality of food as I did not stay to taste them, ambience is exaggerated, terrace setting makes the place very hot during day time.

Once again ideal for those who have loads of spare cash, not for VFM types like me

Very interesting setting

The place is entirely done up in an Arabic mood with ornate curtains for a few private seatings. Very kid friendly. Food is awesome without being high on carbs. Drinks are near perfect. slightly on the expensive side but totally worth it.

Giving it a star short of five because of the usual delay they have in getting your cheque. So annoying it was that my friend lost his cool and almost screamed at them!

An Enjoyable Outing

We went for a Sunday brunch to RUH. Really enjoyed the ambiance. It was a nice relaxed meal. Initially there was a little bit of confusion as to what was available as part of the deal. Then Natesan, the manager stepped in and was really helpful. The waiters were extremely alert and prompt at serving us each course. Food was tasty, with a combination of Mediterranean and north Indian dishes to choose from, with lots of starters that really filled me up. I hardly had space for the main course! But when the chicken biriyani I had chosen came, it was so delicious I couldn't help but dig in. it was a nice relaxing way to spend the afternoon. I do wish their timings were a bit longer though, so it would make for a really lazy Sunday afternoon.

RUH-bbish

The fact that this places sux so bad is the reason I was so encourgaed to punch in a review Here it goes....

There is no point in making a booking, because we got our table a good 45 minutes late. In fact when they were overbooked out they were still asking people walking in (without reservations) to just wait TWO minutes. There was no one to clean up the tables. Once seated, we saw a very nice ambience but thats where the good part ended. They are completely understaffed. No one actually turned up to take the order for 40 min..Infact courtesy wasn't even extended to serve water.
On calling the waiter to take the service, he promised to be back in two minutes and giving us THE BEST service which he did not turn up even after 40 minutes. Have been to hundreds of restaurants...this one is really THE WORST...

INterestingly they do not believe in giving any cutlery ...For the starters we ordered the waiter actually gave two spoons from the table next to us and we were eight people there. He said he will try and get other spoons once they are cleaned in the kitchen. I was like What the hell??

We finally took a call to walk out after speaking with the owner who was least bothered to hear the inconvenience caused to us.

No wonder they are far far away from organised restaurants like the BJN groups'. Please do not even think about it unless you want to ruin your evening. Maybe a tip from the shanti sagars would help them in getting better in service. BTW food was horrible too.

Ruh-diculous

With a scarcity of places to eat of Sarjapur road, my group of friends and myself land up in this ridiculous place, Ruh.

A dingy building with no parking, we disregard and pray the food is better. The menu though boasts of having Spanish, Arabian and Lebanese food. None of those items are actually available. Poor quantity of food, for the exorbitant prices they charge.

The tapas is barely even a meal for a toddler with the quantity. If you’re a vegetarian, you rather walk down to the nearest dhaba and grab a bite instead. The service is so slow with waiters not caring on taking the order and once they do, they serve you what ever they feel like. On ordering rumali roti’s we got Nan’s and tandori rotis, with a “I have no concern” grin, the mutton serving was insufficient. Falafels have tiny pita bread (smaller than a mini pizza).

I should have checked the reviews before heading here.!! The only thing that you will love is the first look, a wow moment for 2 minutes and it’s a big let down there on. Total Rip – off !!!!

I must say this place is just awesome, I was looking for a place where I can take my wife on her birthday and I tried this place.

From outside (the building looks) is not that impressive but when u go inside the rest., well you ll be amazed, I tried their Spanish arrangement, they have a separate section which is on water and surrounded by candles, they charge some nominal fee for lighting the candles around the area and on my request they had put the song of birthday and the way all waiters came with a light by singing the birthday song was AWESOME!!!!! overall I am quite satisfied,I give full marks for their gesture and food.

"Ruh"ined Food, "Ruh"tzy Ambience

Ruh is a treat for senses, if you are ready to neglect the sense of taste, that is.

Everything about the ambiance reminds one of a Turkish Otel. The various types of seating, soothing music and lighting, rustic yet charming atmosphere. If, and only, if, they had paid the same level of attention to the food they serve, this restaurant could totally be one of the best in Bangalore.

We were a group of 12 and went with the intention of having a good time. No alcohol was consumed, so I am not going to dwell on how good a bar they have. And hope that lends credibility to the fact that this reviewer's taste-buds were not rendered ineffective by alcohol.

First, we started with Lamb Shorba. While we were waiting, we were served a kind of dal. We took one sip and called the waiter to ask why he served us the bland, cardboardy water and he replied, well, that it was the Shorba! When a friend of mine tried to explain how a shorba is to him, he politely said, and I quote, "Sir, Shorba is a 'SPANISH' dish, maybe you haven't tried it before!" If Shorba is Spanish then I guess Enrique Iglesias is from Afghanistan. (They did not charge us for the, ahem, Shorba, once we said we were not happy, so full credit for Customer Service)

We ordered quite a variety of dishes and I am not going to review each and every dish we had, but it would be a gross injustice not to describe the Mutton Biryani. It was an excellent dish if, if it was an MTR ready-mix you could microwave and eat later. I felt like sitting in the Steam Bath for an hour after the dinner just so that the rice I had consumed would finally be fully cooked and attain salvation.

Another masterpiece was the Achari Chicken. if achari chicken is prepared by mixing grilled chicken in actual pickle and serving it, then I guess it was perfect!

I am still under the after effects of the dinner and have nothing more to write; Except sing praises about the ambiance. The low couches, separate tables surrounded by falling water, swings, alternate lighting, huge screen playing themed music...If only the food was at least average, this place would be a landmark. If only...

Thanks to RUH!!! Appreciate your help!!

Hi All.. Jus wanna share my experience with RUH.. I had planned to surprise my sister on her birthday by a candle light dinner.. I contacted evening flavors and they suggested RUH.. Hence i got in touch with this restaurant,.. I m from chennai, i had no clue on how the place would look and how i could make this plan a successful one.. I first spoke to Ali from this restaurant, i told him this plan and he asked me not to worry and gave me an assurance that they could make it up for me.. The team then sent me the pictures of the place and the setup.. I tot i could give it a try,, therefore reserved a table for 2 of my most special friends (My sister and brother) ..
Finally it was the day, the two went there, they called me immediately and told they liked the place and the ambience a lot.. They had a great time ,the food and service was good as well is wat they told me.. Finally the team surprised my sister by forming a train and bringing the cake.. i believe everybody sang for her. . . Thank you for this favour from RUH, for fulfilling my surprise gift...
A SPECIAL THANKS TO NATESAN who beared with me and helped me to make things smooth.. He made all arrangements as i wished, .. Thank you Natesan.. I also thank Ali , Mala, the entire team for this and Evening flavors as well for suggesting this restaurant ... Next time i go to Bangalore i would definitely visit Ruh..

Fabulous Experience

I don’t know what you guys are talking about - THIS IS SUCH A WOUNDERFUL RESTAURANT! WOW! What an amazing experience me and my team of 20 went to this new place we discovered - RUH RESTAURANT on Sarjapur Outer Ring Road. The ambience is magical and amazingly done up, a different kinds of seating - we have never seen tents inside a restaurant before. Can you imagine a rain seating - sitting within rain during summer - really awesome. And food was awesome Spanish, Arabian, Lebanese, Indian and Kababs, Platters. The beverage menu includes some amazing Cocktails and mocktails – the Alice in Ruh is really special. The Waiters and Captains are very friendly and service is really fast and best of all no problems at all getting there - it was just on the Sarjapur Ring Road at Bellandur Junction. No Parking problems - Really Great Experience - Definitely we will go there again and again. Hats off to the person who’s done a Great Job.

Deteriorating Service

I work at HSBC and I am regular at Ruh till now. Right from first day of it's opening I with group of colleagues have been visiting Ruh. Collectively, we are of view that the service has deteriorated significantly. Yesterday, we have to wait almost 40 mins for simple starter we had ordered. Then, we have to call multiple times for drinks. Over and above, they made a mistake in billing. Though I am regular, they weren't ready to listen to me. We never take small pegs, and the bill showed 9 small pegs. Then the waiter was saying that he had forgot to add one small peg. We just laughed at them and walked away. We paid for 9 small pegs.

Look like fake reviews

The last 5 reviews of this restaurant have been very suspicious. All 5 reviews have been written by someone who has signed-up on the same day, and has only one review - that of Ruh. There is not even a single negative point mentioned in any of these reviews, and everything sounds too good to be true, especially after all the previous reviews of Ruh.
Also, all 5 reviews have the same style of signing off, by mentioning the name at the end of the review.
I cannot confirm this with any proof, but it definitely is suspicious!

Good Food Good Service

Hey,

Just felt that I needed to write this review since so many people have had a bad experience at this restaurant. We went for dinner last night the ambience is great, food good (not great but pretty good) and the service was good ( again not the best in the world but clearly nothing to complain about). I would say I disagree with most of the other posters or perhaps things have dramatically improved since Valentines Day and this is certainly a good restaurant to go to for a wonderful evening of food and drinks sitting in a pretty setting in the Sarjapur area.

A brilliant place

People I get the valentine's day fiasco, but believe me it is just an aberration. This is an absolutely fantastic place.
To start of, the place has one of the best ambiance in the city. I recommend people to go at night cause most of the place is open, only a small section of it is indoors. The food (the starters, main course and the desert) was delicious. They have a great selection of cocktails, martinis, sangria's, but not much options in wine. I loved the place and I recommend the guys who had a bad experience to try it again.

Worst resturant in bangalore !!!!

I did the booking for a table one day before for 8 PM. But when we arrived, there was some private party going on inside the restaurant and there was not even a single table available. The whole place looked like one big vegetable market with people chattering at maximum possible volume and stinking with all kinds of different dishes. After repeated requests they were not able to arrange a suitable table for us. So after 45 minutes of frustration we had no option but to leave that place. In short in case you are planning to visit that place, then have some backup plans as you can never be sure that you will get the table that was promised while booking.

Avoid at any cost

Went as a team for lunch. The restaurant is in the 4 the floor and they have a lift that could take only 2 at a time. The food was average and the service was horrible. You can find plenty of better restaurants for the price they charge.

Completely unbalanced place !!!

Excellent ambience to start with!! - Average food & Horrible service -- 'Ruh' cannot be described better..

The 'chaos' amongst the staff is better visible than the ambience itself ..

Spending 3K for a family get together was not worth a pie !!

Apparantely there is no point talking to the manager as well ..!

Ruh review

This place was a huge disappointment. We went there for our team lunch after looking at the photos on their site. the ambiance was good but the food was sub standard. The prices are also sky high. On returning I heard similar reviews from almost all my friends. I for one, am never returning to Ruh again!!

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER- UNCHI DUNKAAN FEEKA PAKWAN

We visited this place recently and are very very very DISAPPOINTED.
Not only with the careless staff, poor and slow service but tasteless and non presentable food too.
Imagine on Sunday evening you went out with friends to enjoy and have fun but return home late (because of super slow service) with anger and an empty stomach (tasteless food you couldn't finish and some dishes which were ordered and never came till 11 pm) . Finally prepared something at 11:00 pm. Ever happened with anyone?? I don't think so.... :-(

They served the starter in 1 hour and that too without any sauce or green chutney, even after reminding them thrice.
We finished that ok type Starter without chutney and asked for main course which we ordered with the starter itself but it didn't come ...Waited for one more hour …Asked the different staff members and finally spoke to manager also, but no use. After 2 hours also, they told us rice is still not cooked and we have not much staff. GOD knows what kind of rice they prepare?
We asked for the best in veg and non veg dishes and what they served was daliya type of dish with some sambhar type of curry poured on it and in non veg full plate of rice with some dry tomatoes(non chew-able) and a few small pieces of chicken in it…DISGUSTING!

The drinks we ordered (SEXY SUNRISE) was simply canned real juice (even a child can tell from the taste) but they charged RS 175 + service charge for this and refused to admit it... TOO MUCH!!!

After such an awful treatment we checked the bill and noticed that they added "papad" , which was never served… I think this is a “prize winning worst experience”... Please Please DON'T EVER THINK OF GOING TO RUH or prepare something at home before heading for dinner as you may have to come back and look for options.


Attaching the bill also, just have a look.

Thanks,
Navjeet

Worst Experience ever..

Yesterday we booked the table for Ruh at bellandur for buffet . It was 9 people.
When we went in there we had a surprise. The hotel manager said that buffet has to be ordered by phone itself. That too this was informed to us after half an hour of waiting. This is no where mentioned in the sites.
Then they advised us to order a separate A LA CARTE and same was ordered. When we ordered, the order was too delayed from the normal time.
Now coming to the billing part, this is the worst thing I ever saw here. We ordered some 22 rotis and 22 rotis were served. When billing we were billed for 27 Rotis and that too above that they told we ordered a paratha. The paratha was written in a separate waiter bill which we never ordered..
Such a horrible experience we had… Please never ever go here. If you at all want to go please check your bill properly and then only pay otherwise you will lose extra money out of your pocket…
For Poor service, Manager gives the reason that few days back the old manager left and he also took all the boys with them.

Most Romantic Restaurant in Bangalore

Just one visit and I am in love with this romantic restaurant as they call it. I was visiting with my family, 12 members in all. We chose to go there Friday evening for dinner. We called, a lady spoke to us and booked us a table. Their parking area was a little cluttered. We parked our car in the bottom of the building and took a lift straight to the top floor. The entrance was really nicely decorated with tiny lights and blue red lights hanging from the ceiling. They gave us a seat inside their Spanish section which is ac and was cool there. Really nice lights all over decorated and also darkness around. Their tent sating is really comfortable inside small tents. The manager handed us the menu, which looked quite cheap for such a big restaurant, we went through the menu and decided to try some Mediterranean dishes before we go for our regular rice and gravy. Perfect cooking and perfect garnishing, very well cooked dishes. When we entered the restaurant was almost empty but as we sat there, the entire section was filled with a hip crowd. Service was good but a bit slow, they also offered us free lime soda at the end of our meal. The music was just a beat going through the whole evening but was soft. A nice restaurant for a hearty and heavy meal which is light on the wallet. Would be visiting often.

Great Corporate Hangout

We had been there last Thursday and the treat we received from Ruh was fabulous. We were 26 members in all and Lunch was sponsored by our company. We had booked a place in their Spanish section and asked them to a table so that we could all sit together. We walked in at around 12.30 pm and could hear the loud beat of music which felt like a party was going on inside. The manager guided us to the table, it was comfortable seating inside their tent area. The ambience inside is just amazing and cozy as well. Water was immediately served on our table, then followed by our welcome drink and soon the starters, we hardly waited. All of us were in conversations with various things to discuss about. Special thanks to Ruh for serving us such delicious dishes, personally I really enjoyed their Murg Dum Biryani which with Raita was exquisite. The food is absolutely fantastic, not too spicy, thus my overseas clients loved the food. The service too was very efficient. By far, all my visits to Ruh have been wonderful and it is a great place to enjoy great food.

Good Place

One of the best Mediterranean and Indian Cuisine restaurants in and around Bangalore. As you enter you feel your in a different atmosphere with soft Arabian music playing in the backdrop. Lots of tiny lights lit up all around you. The interiors are amazing. The Sofa in their tent seating is very comfortable. Well a really well done place and you have different types of seating's too like the swing seats, very nice for the kids and the candle light area, the manager told me that it was the exclusive dining area for couples and also for people celebrating their birthday's and anniversaries. Ruh seemed to have renovated, new cushion covers and even the flooring seems to have changed.

We were a team of 45 and opted for the lunch buffet on a Thursday afternoon and before reaching we got a few calls from Ruh, they told us that everything was ready. The manager led us to our table, the tent area they called it and we waited for about 7 minutes and our welcome drink a mock-tail chilled with ice was on our tables. Later after all our discussions we were ready for Lunch and again we called the manager, he informed that everything was ready and we could serve ourselves. Mineral water bottles and glasses we already on the table the moment we arrived. The buffet was perfect and everyone appreciated the well cooked food especially the murg biryani was perfect with the gravy. Both the veg and non-veg dishes were very impressive. I could boast about the chicken wings tasty as ever. And to finish it all off in a sweet way came the jamoon and the ice cream. Service was also very good since there was always someone around if you needed anything. Ruh Restaurant sure can cater to a large audience, their service is good.

Mutton Biryani the Highlight

Although, I went here almost a year back, I still remember the mutton biryani they serve there. It was a small team outing and we were a little disappointed with the parking but then the good part was we enjoyed a great meal here. We went for dinner and they offered us their A/C tent seating inside which was really comfortable. We were a group of 17 members and walked in on a Saturday evening and found the place packed with people. One of our friends was throwing the party and he selected Ruh. I really praise him for that, we had a great time and soon sometime I will be taking my family along with me. Once through our drink the kick and the music sailed us through the evening with the crowd and people all busy and waiters running with food to the tables. A busy restaurant on weekends and it’s a nice place to visit if you are a gang and want a good place to drink, good food and good service. Ruh is also one of the best restaurants though its a bit on the expensive side, its really worth the money you spend. What else can you want once you enter the restaurant? Food and Drinks and cool interiors to relax and enjoy the evening and some lovely soft music to go with it.

Great Mediterranean Food

One of the few restaurants in Bangalore that serves very good Mediterranean food and wherever you stay in Bangalore atleast one visit is a must. Even their Indian dishes deserve credit. Actually I stay in Bellandur and I find Ruh is the only good place around Marathally, Sarjapur road Outer ring road, and I wouldn't try any other restaurant or I would end up sick. The ambience is very cool and cozy types and service makes up for a more happy moment. Highlight of the day for us was their Falafel Shawarma. Highly recommended place

Anniversary Celebration

We were a couple and wanted to celebrate our Wedding anniversary and I wanted to surprise my husband in a very very special place and one of my friends suggested Ruh Restaurant. She told me they had an exclusive dining area specially for couples on a romantic date or celebration. So I decided to call and book a table, a lady spoke to me and told me all about the arrangements. She had also taken my email ID and sent me the pictures of the Ruh Candle Light Area and I was pretty impressed just seeing the pictures of their candle light area – candles lit all around with blue kind of water surrounding it like an island.

I blindly booked the place wishing nobody else had taken it because they only have one area and only one couple can book at a time lunch or dinner. I paid Rs.3000 extra for the Candle light area and extra for the food we had ordered. It was actually a tiny amount compared to the satisfaction and the happiness that we experienced and the surprise and love for my husband was just too much to take.

They paid extra attention to me and my husband and extra care was taken to every detail. I was especially impressed with the service and the food that’s why I wanted to write this review and tell others about my experience.

Thanks to Ruh and their staff again for making my wedding anniversary special.

Give Ruh a Try, This Place is Definitely Worth You

If you are a foodie this is the place for you cause the food here is excellent. The buffet quantity too is really satisfying. The Falafel Shawarma is my favorite here, also you could try their other Mediterranean dishes like Lamb Targine and Chicken in Orange and Tequila Sauce which is out of this world. Even their Indian dishes deserve credit with items like Mutter Methi Malai, Makai Palak, Kadai Vegetable, Ghosht Rara, Special Dhaniya Kheema Mutter and their Macchi Masala are worth praising. Drinks too are great. Their barman tosses up the bottles and churns out great cocktails for you, try their guava flavoured cocktail which is especially good. So as I said about food at Ruh you’ll have nothing to worry about.

If you’re a large group then you have to book cause they actually cut out a menu especially for you and get it prepared and you can choose your dishes. Everything on their buffet menu is really great. Not very spicy but the flavours can be appreciated. Their pricing is also cool, Rs 591 for non-veg buffet on a weekday and Rs 625 on weekends is very good for their excellent food and good service compared to other restaurants who charge more and offer less.

The down side is their parking, little space to park your car and sometimes at the entrance you have to wait for long to get another car out of your way.

To say something about their interiors, well it depends on the persons perception. It could be a real chill-out kind of interiors or too jazzy for you. But as there are different themes you could select yours, the Arabian or the Spanish. Most of the crowd sits in their Spanish section maybe because of the A/C inside or what I don’t know. But they really have cool seating inside their Spanish section, its called broken house or candle light area, we saw a couple seated inside and candles lit all around them, this section also has water surrounding it and rose petals strewn all over the footsteps. The manager explained that the exclusive seating area is for romantic couples and you can book it at an additional cost of Rs.3000 which includes a cake but is excluding food. That seating area was also really cool.

Coming to the service part, you will never have a problem on a weekday but weekends and the crowds definitely the service slows down, but at that time the best thing you can do is first chill out with a beer or your liquor and take it real slow and you’ll find that the service is not that bad.

The managers are most helpful here, they actually take time out and explain to you, about the place and about the best items on the menu and at the end of the meal they also give you their feedback forms and later you receive a call too asking how was your experience at Ruh.

Again if you want a good meal and a nice cozy place here it is.

Pathetic Food n Burns your Pocket

I have to give a rating between 1 to 5, since there is nothing less than that.
I really regret being there, such a pathetic restaurant with very expensive menu.
- Ambience may be good with Arabian + Punjabi theme, but food was really really really BAD. I can’t even compare it with roadside stalls
- Service was utterly bad, but they charge for services too... Don’t know why!
- Every item there is really expensive and for that food... No Way.
** Never ever try that, many very good hotels are out there for the same amount you spend and with a much better ambience.
- Wash room was awful n stinky.
- Stair case, the entrance and the Parking were like being welcomed to HELL..!!
** Writing the review to help others not because of anger or frustration..!!

Super Cool Restaurant

We were a team of 36 members and booked a place at Ruh on Friday for lunch buffet, must say my coworkers had a great time and a great meal with some great Arabian music. My team mates appreciated my choice of restaurant as I had introduced Ruh to them. I am a regular visitor to Ruh and go there with my family and friends. The buffet was super cool with a welcome drink, 5 starters, 5 main course, three varieties of rotis and rice and 2 desserts, a complete meal. Our table was ready the moment we entered and mineral water bottles on the table. We sat all together and relaxed and in 5 minutes our welcome drink on the table. Very good service, overall a good experience. Definitely I would introduce Ruh to all my friends and relatives too.

I went to this place with the hope that considering there are multiple focsses on the cuisine, food would be decent.

Pros:
Artistic ambience - very arabian touch & hookah

Cons:
Expensive, Not value for money food - hardly found the paella to taste even remotely spanish - Location being bang on the main road with minimum parking options

HORRIBLE Experience

We planned a team lunch and booked table (for 16 ppl) in this restaurant in advance. We reached the place 5 mins in advance and were shocked to find that they had given our table to another group which as per their records booked after we did. The host was too rude in even giving us this info and asked us to wait for 1 hour or so. Talking to the person who handles bookings didnot help. Finally after about 30mins of waiting, they told us to have starters in the place where we were standing and wait for some tables to get freed up in the next hour or so, and we walked out with our plans totally screwed up.
Such was the unprofessional behavior this restaurant management exhibited, totally unworthy of any decent crowd.
We didnot get a chance to taste their food.
Their interiors looked a cheap imitation of Jalsa.
They have 2-3 differently themed seating area, but please dont fall prey to the tactics, else you will be grilled in the oven like ambience in the afternoons.
OVERALL, TOTALLY USELESS PLACE. IF YOU CHOOSE TO GO, BE PREPARED TO HANDLE THE SHAME OF BEING TURNED BACK OR ASKED TO WAIT FOR HOURS. A BIG NO NO IF YOU ARE GOING FOR CELEBRATIONS OR TAKING YOUR CLIENTS ALONG

As the heading says it all the only other words I can use is Fantastic Experience. Went there with my family, as we always prefer to go to a restaurant just before sunset and like to spend the entire evening there, Ruh was one of the best places as the tent seatings are really comfortable there and swing seats for my kids to play around. The service also is pretty fast. Definitely a place to vist over and over again for big and large families alike.

Horrible food and very Expensive

We had ordered for Mediterranean food and It was horrible and too expensive.
The starters were very less compared to the amount they were charging for the platter.
The main course was oily and very less and the rice was over cooked and sticky.
Even the drink was not cold and tasted different .(We had ordered for mojito). Service was not great . Only the ambiance was good .
But we would never go back to this place ever gain. It was too costly and not worth the bad food they had served.

We went for a dinner.. They have a very nice ambience that I must admit. Service was reasonably good. Everything is overpriced but the food quantity doesn''t seem to match the price. We enjoyed the Briyani and the Murg-Soola. It was really delicious.Location of this restaurant is a drawback due to the congested area of the Bangalore Central. And it doesnt show up very inviting place from outside.

Dazzling Place

Was stunned to find Ruh Resto-Bar with its dazzling display of lights in its interiors. This one is truly a nightlife spot for youngsters and entertainment for the whole family. The place is pretty big inside with plenty of space. Chilling our in ruh and spending the whole evening there is what most large families do during weekends. This popular restaurant and bar is simply stunning with red brick walls and huge arches as doors. We also heard that this place gets too crowded during weekends, but that’s the time to let your hair down and have fun with their different type of spanish music, keeps your feet tapping. There is also a candle light areas with candles lit all around you here is where couples usually sit celebrating their wedding anniversary or something. Their menu is large with Spanish and Indian foods, offering sizzling spanish tapas to mouthwatering Mezze. Fabulous north Indian and mugulai delicacies gives your taste buds the real feel. Their beverage menu too offers you the most delicious mix. Ruh for sure great value for money and a great evening together with family.

Lovely Biryani

The ambience is on top of the world when all lit up and with three different sections you get confused what or where to choose to sit. But I noticed its always packed inside their AC Spanish section so me and my husband always head there. Their candle light area looks very very impressive with candles lit all around you and the blue waters below with red lights all above. My husband and me being foodies ourselves, loves food and if we are not doing it we are dreaming of it. So we had to find him a very very nice place to munch ourselves to heaven. Here the indian and mediteranean food offers a lot of variety, value for money and you get a bit confused what to choose with so much on the menu. To put it down all simple you should try their best dishes like tomto ka shorba, murg shrba, lahori sabzi sekh kabab, subzi potlikabab, paneer tikka, murg ka soola, paneer makhani, paneer korma, mali kofta, kadai vegetble, murg bhuna, murg rara, murg kadai, murg biryani, ghosht Biryani. I would recommend this place if you want good food, a nice quiet ambience with soft spanish music playing, smart and helpful waiters.

Ruh is a celebration

What was suppose to be an ordinary evening dinner turned into a pleasant surprise of stunning extravagant entertainment with tasty mediterranean and indian food. We spoke to the manager there and he explained they have three different sections inside moroccan, arabian and spanish. Could hear soft spanish music playing in the background. The smart waiter dressed in a white shirt and wearing jeans handed over the menu to us. The menu had a lot of dishes and hard to choose, we settled for the mouthwatering al-harira soup, falafel shawarma, murg dum biryani and sweet corn & mushroom crepes. The courteous waiters and staff help you in having a great time.

Get Good Food here

The right place for you to enjoy a meal, the food out here is excellent. The Murg Dum Biryani is really tasty here. The Dal makhani is also very nicely prepared by their chef. Also try dishes like Mutton Biryani, Peas Pulao, Ghosht Rara, Special Dhaniya Kheema Mutter.

Going there in a group too is very nice, I was part of a team outing there and I like their buffet meals too. The down side is their service is a bit slow and sometimes you just have to keep waving at the waiter. The inside sections are well set with sofas for a comfortable time together with family or with friends. I really enjoyed chilling out with my beer and their really enjoyable music.

The managers are very helpful, they suggest the best dishes to try out. Go to Ruh for a good time.

Best Corporate Hang Out

Was here all last week with my team of 36 members, we really had a great time at Ruh restaurant. The music was very nice; they were playing some English and Arabic tracks. The buffet was a complete meal and ended with a sweet tooth halva and ice cream. This time around the buffet was actually laid out on the table for us, which was actually more comfortable than each member going about here and there. The waiters were quick on their feet and the manager was all well dressed for the occasion. We had booked a week before hence there was no confusion and everything went about smoothly. Thanks to the Ruh team for making our event a success. This is the place I would recommend for all corporate parties.

Disgusting Food, Unprofessional and Rude Management

Went to this restaurant two weeks back. The ambience of the restaurant is different, based on the Arabian theme. But, the red lights used in the inner section makes the place look spooky. I went to this place with my friends. We ordered naan, dal makhni and murgh methi malai. We got the food after one hour fifteen minutes after complaining thrice. The owner seemed very rude and unreasonable as we were the only people in the restaurant. When the food finally arrived, we got another shock. The naan was half burnt, dal makhni tasted stale and the chicken of the murgh methi malai was too stiff as if stored in a refrigerator for a couple of days. The food they serve was terrible. When we complained to the owner, she started arguing saying, " How can the food be bad?"

Her arguments sounded silly and unreasonable. She stated blabbering that no one has disliked the food ever.

The owner was very rude and the most un-hospitable restaurant owner as she was busy defending her point instead of accepting the fact. The price of the food is too high compared to the quality served. We were all frustrated by the behaviour of the owner. We just paid the bill and left the place without having the food. I can put up with bad food but never with bad service and unacceptable behaviour. I would never recommend this place to anyone. I would prefer to starve but never visit this restaurant ever. Ruh is bad, and so are owners !!

BAD Review for RUH

Service is very slow, they make customers wait for long periods of time, we reached there at 12:30 PM and got the food on our table at 2:30 PM.

They have their own way to convince, they won't let you go and will only continue to keep you waiting.

This happened twice and so I am drawing the conclusion that service is very poor and very late.

Pathetic

On 25th Nov 2014 we went for a team lunch to a restaurant near by name RUH close to Eco Space, Bellandur, Bangalore. We were surprised by the way they are charging for a single water bottle. For a bottle priced Rs. 20 they are charging Rs. 45 and on the top of Rs. 45 they are adding VAT and service tax extra. On confronting with the manger, the excuse we got is you go to any bar you will find beer at high price as compared to a normal wine shop. Please find the attached bill along with this message. The way per water bottle was charged was very unusual. First they have increased the price of the water bottle by 125% and then they add taxes too. If they add taxes on the print price I can understand. But first increasing the price and then adding the taxes its really unusual.

very bakwas and extremely expensive... have a look at the bill...I have a separate bill for 4 water bottles with MRP Rs. 20. Open the image to see the steep price of water. By price of water u can make out how expensive it is...

The worst place to go to.

My team went here for lunch yesterday, but only after we'd discussed our meal plan with the manager. The manager told us that he'd be happy to customize the lunch as per our needs. However, their service and food disappointed us a lot. Their staff lacks absolute knowledge, including the manager too. We were not at all pleased inspite of spending so much money. I'd suggest nobody to go to this place. I wouldn't have given them even a single star.

Bad taste in the mouth

Having lived in the same locality for more than 4 years, never heard about this eating place.
Went to the place with ,my colleagues for a lunch. Was shocked to see that this was scrammed between two buildings. Parking inadequate and dingy. The edifice of the building is not at all appealing to the eye.

Too much of decoration and anointment in the insides... No subtlety and too much in the eye. Food was bad and did not taste fresh. The desserts were limited and did not excite anyone.

A big no-no for anyone wanting to explore this

Bad quality food, poor service and very costly

One of the worst place I ever visited in Bangalore. Hardly anything from the drinks menu were available, food quality was way below average (not fresh), service was pathetic. I visited there for Dinner with 2 other families and I came back disappointed.
I found the behavior of one of the service staff very weird, he didn't add some of the items in the receipt and later on told me that credit card machine is not working properly so I can pay him cash and I ended up paying part of the bills in cash as the machine didn't work the second time...

Great Food and Service

Very Good Food is served here. This is the place to be if you are really hungry and want to have a great Evening.

The staff is very professional and very attentive in taking your order. We were there last month, had been here before a year back too, I had always liked their theme.

We sat and waited for 10 minutes after which a waiter came to our table with their paper menus. After we ordered the food was on our table after 20 minutes but was hot and looked freshely prepared.

We also met their manager and she was very polite. Nice

Very nice place for North Indians

Ruh is a very fashionable restaurant to visit and this place is becoming popular with the young and elite crowd. The menu card boasts of a wide variety of dishes ranging from the Mediterranean to North Indian. This is a must try place for the crowd looking for a good time, a great ambiance to settle down and enjoy sumptuous meals. Everything on the inside of the restaurant is fascinating except the outside of the building which looks scary and dingy. No proper display boards either to make your search for Ruh easy. My wife loves the place, so do my kids and insist on Ruh on all our outings.

Never want to visit this horrible place again...

Pathetic food...nothing organised...
One of most unhygienic place I have ever visited.
Price is too high in compare to quality of food served by them.
Parking inadequate and dingy. The edifice of the building is not at all appealing to the eye.
Even I saw bedbugs and some other insects on table.
