On a Wednesday night we were at a loose end and decided on an Indian. Ross-on-Wye has a good choice of Indian restaurants but we chose the ZZam Zam because of their Mon - Wed deal and the fact that you can take your own drinks.
Lovely grub, especially the chicken Naga!
Attentive, friendly staff.

We were staying in a holiday apartment just across the road from Zam Zam so it was a very convenient place to eat. When we arrived at 7pm only one other table was occupied but when we left at 8.30 the place was full so a tip book a table in advance if you can.
The service was friendly but a bit slow as our waiter was called away a couple of times to deal with people collecting take away orders. The food was tasty and reasonably priced but my so called southern Indian garlic chicken was not authentic. I have travelled in Goa, Kerela and Tamil Nadu and this dish at Zam Zam bore no relation to the lovely coconut milk and curry leaf dishes that I ate there. Still it was ok.
BE AWARE they don't serve alcohol but you can take your own.
Would I eat there again, probably not.

I have been a regular for nearly 8 years and consistently had excellent meals and service at reasonable prices. Shah and his colleagues never fail to make you feel very welcome and go out of their way to accommodate your needs. This team deserve a much higher rating in the Ross on Wye area than 8th. The chef and the front of house all merit 5 stars, Do not miss this restaurant when you dine in Ross. Thank you to all at ZAM ZAM.

After reading the reviews and speaking to a couple of locals it was a bit of a "no brainier" for someone in need of a curry in the Wye Valley. Despite the lure of the ridiculously economic Special Menu we too the food away and were not disappointed. Flavoursome and filling. All 'n'all an excellent curry experience made better by the charming and helpful manager and his staff. Highly Recommended .
