The story of Ruh, the Desert Princess

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away lived a Princess called Elaheh and she was the most beautiful girl in all of the earth.

The Princess charmed men with her looks, but she really charmed everyone with her culinary skills. She could create magic in the kitchen.

Kings would surrender their kingdoms just to drown in her food and her intoxicating wine. King Idris was one of them who fell for her and he wanted her to be his forever. But she, being a wanderer did not stay. She would never belong anywhere or to anyone. She roamed the shores of the Mediterranean, through the marbled palaces and dusty market places, through ancient souks and orange groves.

Her wanderings brought her to Ruh, where her magic still dwells. It’s here in the food that delights, the ambience that’s like a warm embrace and the service that’ll make you feel at home.

The folks that brought you Chandni Chowk, Jalsa and Heera, now bring Ruh.

When entering, you need to utter the magical words “Khul Jaa, Sim Sim” – taken from Ali Baba and the 40 thieves.

There are 3 sections. A sections with low level furniture to give you the feel of the Arabian environment. Another section is for families or groups to sit. That section also has a swing. The third is an interesting section for a private couple. With rose petals that shower from the ceiling to floating candles to a special menu – This has it all to woo someone special.
