Returned after trying others

The original and I can now confirm the best Indian in Ross on Wye, I have tried all the others and find myself returning to this one. Lovely staff and food always hot, one word of caution, what the Madras, it's proper hot.

We recently stayed near Ross on Wye in October, and for my birthday I wanted Indian for dinner. Best decision ever to go to Obilash (having read other trip advisor reviews :) ) The food was simply superb, very good quality, extremely tasty and good portion sizes. We couldnt fault any of the dishes that we ordered. The staff were... More

Having recently moved to Ross thought we would give this a go and it proved to be good, straightforward takeaway fare. Mixed starter pleasant enough and mains of Chicken Dhansak was hot and meat content very generous. My wife had a chicken tikka biryani with a packed vegetable sauce which was enjoyed. Pleasant and good service encourages me to return.

The last time we went to the Obilash was for a meal to say goodbye to two friends who were moving away. These friends ate here every Thursday so where better to be?! The atmosphere was, as usual, warm and relaxing. The service, friendly, helpful and respectful. The food was presented well, and tasted delicious! The Obilash for me is... More

Had not been in since their refurbishment. Was a great eating experience - menu was a really good mix of dishes and the ones we had were excellent. The dining area is much more open and is nicely decorated. Service was great and the price was good. Would recommend.

Luckily we managed to book a table that afternoon. First impressions were lovely clean restaurant. Staff were very welcoming and quickly took our drinks order.Very extensive menu and we were spoilt for choice. It was extremely busy not only with seated customers but also those collecting takeaways. There was quite a long wait between courses, but that's acceptable when you... More

Good menu, Excellent food, Good service, Comfortable atmosphere Well priced, Our party of ten dined extremely well with a broad range of dishes, everyone enjoyed their choices. This is a destination restaurant and well worth travelling to. I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Authentic food with friendly service. A nice atmosphere if you are seating or take away food available. Situated on the Gloucester road just on the edge of the town. Always a treat and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Asian cooking.

We have regularly eaten at the Obilash over the years, but not so recently, preferring another restaurant in the area, I only wish we hadn't! We went back on Saturday night and the makeover they had about 9 months ago makes the place look great; the restaurant has been opened out and they even have a private dining area! The... More

My colleague and I are both vegetarian and we found the selection of dishes very good. The dishes we chose were excellent and very interesting too. It was a quite Monday evening, but as the night wore on more people arrived, many of them local. This is a sure sign the restaurant is good. Service was also very good. I... More
