We've had food from the Obilash for a few years, as it's always been exceptional quality and extremely tasty. However, our last visit wasn't as good as normal, but we will be back!

I visited this restaurant expecting good food and service as it came highly recommended by several friends. Unfortunately the food was very average. My lamb dish was very chewy and the accompanying rice dish was very dry. We had popadoms and chutneys to start, one lamb curry, one chicken curry, plain rice, chips (inedible), 1 coke and a bottle of... More

Moved to the area recently, tried this restaurant for take away but food was very poor, ingredients must be very cheap, our chicken meals were very chewy, either over cooked or just cheap frozen chicken used. Gave it another chance a few weeks later, but just the same poor quality food. We have now found somewhere else nearby that's much... More

We have been coming to The Obilash for several years and having now moved away from the area we will greatly miss our favourite restaurant! The quality of the food never wavers and is of the same standard whether dining in or taking away. The dining in experience is always great, whether for a casual meal out or a special... More

A. Great choice of menu. Friendly staff. Perfect if you want a take away. Nice decor . Great as a couple or to dine out with family and friends.

After walking the streets of Ross on Wye we settled for Obilash. The staff were very eager to please, offering to move us to a cooler table after noticing we were struggling with the heat. We had a great meal. I find that in some restaurants that some waiters/waitresses ask far too often if you are enjoying the meal. This... More

I came here with my partner and family for dinner in February, the food was average for an Indian restaurant but there was plenty of it and it was well priced, unfortunately I fell hard down the very steep stairs and on to my back and injured myself, don't go up if you are not able!

Always a delicious meal - fresh and spicy. Prawns are lovely and the sauces are so yummy . Great naans and chutneys too . Tandoor chicken and fish are also very good .

Very nice restaurant and friendly staff. The food was okay, nothing special but it wasn't horrible. I ordered a naga curry as it is my favourite flavour but it didn't taste of naga at all so they either cooked me the wrong dish or only had a hint of naga in there
