I have moved from sydney to canberra. I am an indian and food critic and i have tasted very good indian food around the world. I heard alot of praise from my aussie friends about ruchi food. but when i dined in ruchi belconen it was all opposite. first of all the owner were not pleased to see indian in her restaurant and that i could see from her face. after getting such a cold welcome from owner we order some dishes which tool about 1 hour and that period we felt ignored. And after all when the food came it was not at all at the par of average indian taste. I was shocked to taste the all of ruchis dishes. I know its very hard to find a good indian restaurant in the canberra but ruchi didnt fit in the average one. I think overall experience was not good and that has happened to our other indian friend also. from now on i have never recommended to none of my aussie or indian friend. I have also heard that when they take order from the people from indian region people they specify in the kitchen that the food is ordered by Indian customer. If you really want to taste good indian food in canberra i would suggest you to go and check mirchi restaurant in gunghalin. and a BIG NO to RUCHI

Finally zillion spices away from India this place got my deserted taste-buds some life. This place is amazing. It has, without a doubt, set a high benchmark for service and food in my mind. The good thing about this restaurant is its service unlike other Indian restaurants. The best dishes are butter chicken, Kerala chicken, yummy toondari chicken & many more. I have had in my life, so tender and well-cooked a great place to be with family or friends if you plan to hog and hog. The food quality and taste has been consistent ever since it started. Which is a big plus, otherwise most places have good taste and quality in the beginning, but later it deteriorates. I have been very impressed with the quality of service and food delivered at “Ruchi”. The staff is very hospitable and on their toes to cater to the needs of the customers. Good family place,Biryani is really outstanding. Have been here many times and hope to enjoy more! Superb service, clean environment level taken into good account by the owner. I would recommend this restaurant any day as one gets more than one’s money is worth Thanks for taking care of all our foodies like us! Keep up the good work guys!
I heard service is very bad and as I work near Oately court, me and most of my mates tried food here, it costly and nothing special... I heard some really bad experiences with service. one of it was, wen my mate had a party with his family and friends they started eating food and around 9 the owner got impatient and showed his bad service manners, later he just turned up at the table gave them shop keys and told them to cook for themselves if they want to stay longer. Another was one of my mates wen went in and ordered some food before he could sip some water he noticed a fly in his glass, he politely called the owner and brought it to his notice, the owner without any expression or an apology just took way the glass and brought him an another one. My mate told me it was awkward for him as he has to stay untill he finished his lunch, he said he was not angry but expected a friendly apology. I think running a business especially being in a service sector, people would expect some extent of professionalism.
I ordered take-away from Ruchi and Medhu vadai was one item I ordered. It had an unusually high salt content in it. Would not recommend the place to any one who like healthy eating. I have had gone there to eat-in a couple of times and do not have anything good to say about the experience either. I will keep out of this place next time I want Indian food.
Ruchi restaurant is a big NO NO NO. Though the food is reasonably good, the owners have some serious attitude issues. The staff is polite and friendly, however the owners are just unrealistic ! I would recommend you to try out some other restaurant than going to Ruchi ! My 2 cents.

Very poor food quality..the butter chicken seems like I had never had before..would suggest they go and eat in a food court... Very rude owner.. did not even bother to ask how was the food... thanks... Just poor mannerisms and arrogance.. BIG NO ...
After a long time had a great breakfast remembering my mothers cooking in my country, Mysore masala dosai is one of best food i ever had in Australia Had a great time dining in Ruchi South Indian cuisine
Very arrogant people who just after ur money.They will tell u that u have to spend 18$ individually to get the table which is so cheap , very undesirable place to go and eat. Had worse experience .
Nice food and friendly staff. Forgot part of our order when delivering to our home but kindly dropped it by about ten minutes later after calling to let them know.
Have been to Kerela in India, this is a southern Indian restaurant with authentic southern dishes including thali, dosa and curries with coconut milk, a favourite!
Its a worst restaurant, never go for it. Especially the customer service is worst, -attitude problem to all the people working there. Food sucks..never go for it.
Good food. Excellent taste, take it from an Indian.. Though the service could do with a bump up!! The staff could be a wee bit enthusiastic.
Ordered the Beef Vindaloo and Butter Chicken. Both were excessively salty; the Vindaloo so much it was inedible. Very poor value for money.
Food was done quickly but not particularly nice, the Lamb Roganjosh was a bit bland and extremely oily. Staff not outstanding.
The food was good and the staff was very polite but some of the staff could be more engaging.
Dosa was nice but North Indian cuisine was rubbish. Their hospitality was very poor as well.
Quiet atmosphere, delicious food! Recommend the vegetarian palak paneer
Superb food, friendly service, great value. A winner.
Nothing I like. Poor service and attitude by owner.
Lovely food dosais are great value for money
Very poor service. Rude and arrogant staff.
Avoid this place. Service is pathetic!
Good service and nice food
