“Indian food done right.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

We went for the lunch buffet and were very impressed with the overall selection and ambiance. Not one item that we sampled was off flavor or not fresh. If you are going to order an Indian beer such as Taj Mahal, be aware that they come in 1 liter bottles. The server actually reminded us rather than letting us over order.

“Not kid friendly”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This large restaurant downtown owns only 2 high chairs, which were both occupied when we arrived on Saturday night. The owner told me that he has been there 15 years and never had a problem with this! The service was very slow. Additionally, the portions were pretty small--tons of sauce and only a few chunks of meat. Overall a disappointment.

“Delicious Indian Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

My sister and I are frequent visitors to the wonderful restaurant. The food is consistently outstanding no matter what dish I have tried and the chicken curry is among the best I have ever had, including that I've had in London. They offer dishes in a variety of spicy versions. I can also heartily recommend the chicken vindaloo and any of the yummy lamb dishes. It's also not going to cost you your first born to eat there. It is very reasonable and a very pleasant dining area. Cincinnati's best Indian is just downtown around the corner from the Aronoff, so it's the perfect place to go before a show.

“Wonderful Indian food in Downtown Cincinnati”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

Visitors to downtown Cincinnati should definitely put this Indian restaurant on their list. Downtown Cincinnati restaurants are not, as a rule, all that friendly to vegetarians, so Arkash should be a must for them. But, the menu is full of typical and not-so-typical dishes for every diner and they eagerly seek to match the spice heat level to your needs. Portion sizes are large, too large in fact unless you are interested in taking the leftovers home. The menu is so intriguing, though, it is all too easy to over-order.

Service is pleasant and efficient.
