Description: At the heart of Cardiff’s thriving Cafe Quarter lies the stylish Juboraj – the city centers best loved Indian restaurant. The Café Quarter and Hayes areas of Cardiff Centre have undergone a phenomenal multi-million pound transformation over the past few years. Mill Lane itself has been completely renovated and is now home to a multitude of high quality restaurants catering to every palate. There is no doubt that when it comes to eating out this is the place to be. The carefully crafted interior is contemporary as is fitting for its city centre location but maintains, through the use of original art blended with traditional colour scheme and fittings, a truly authentic ‘Indian’ restaurant atmosphere. A fresh approach to customer service, contemporary and traditional dishes made using ingredients of the highest quality and extensive wine list all add up to an experience you’ll want to repeat time and again.The Juboraj Guarantee ensures that only the highest quality New Zealand lamb and Welsh beef, and the finest 100% fresh chicken breast and freshest seafood available, is used in their dishes. With a warm welcome and friendly attentive staff you can be sure that time spent at a Juboraj, whether it be a light lunch, a pre-theatre bite or a candlelit evening meal, will be time well spent.

I ordered a take away from here last night via Justeat. We have lived in Cardiff a number of years and have had many takeaways from here. Last night I was extremely disappointed with my food. The delivery took a long time (over the 45mins estimated) on a Monday night. The meal cost over £40 which included 4 poppadums. There... More

Following a night of beer and merriment in Cardiff, 7 of us went to the Juboraj for what turned out to be a very good meal. The atmosphere was pleasant; the restaurant was quite full and there was a good 'buzz' about the place. Service was good throughout and when a couple of us were unsure what to choose we... More

We ate here before going to a concert nearby. The food is delicious, beautifully spiced and fresh veg. Good naan and unusual vegetarian dishes. Mine was hotter than expected but so tasty! The service is nice, not pushing drinks on you all the time and chatty. Slightly dull atmosphere and quite expensive but made up for by the good dining.

One review compared this place to homepride tin curry that is an insult to homepride tin curry it was awful we had two different curries to share apart from a slightly different colour they tasted the same were creamy and not spicy. I cannot find words other than awful. We have visited many Indian restaurants throughout Europe and we will... More

We were sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the food you ordered on your visit to Juboraj. We did feel that your review was rather insulting and quite far off the mark. We would like to point out that if you order a creamy curry, presumably a Korma, or perhaps a Passanda, they are specifically mild dishes prepared for our... More

The way I would describe this establishment is tired and has a potential for hurting you with the varying floor levels (there are three) before you can get seated. Distinctly average food, dirty plate at my setting on arrival at my setting which really put everything else under scrutiny. Wanted a beer, was given the Beer menu (novel) asked for... More

Thank you for your review. We are aware of the problems with the different floor levels within the restaurant but unfortunately old buildings can be this way. There is no excuse, however, for dirty plates and the issue has been raised with the staff. You are quite right - if a plate or cutlery are dirty this can, even unintentionally,... More

Called in Juboraj after the recent French game and it seemed very popular - a good sign? The waiting times were as one would expect so that was fine, but... The real issue was the taste quality of the food. Bland. Without spice. Lacking in flavour. A bit like the first Homepride cook-in sauces you'd buy to cook an Indian... More

Dan P, Public Relations Manager at Juboraj, responded to this review

The reason the Juboraj is so popular, as you've kindly pointed out, is that the food is always good. Maybe 'the old palette' wasn't on form the evening you visited. I apologise for the directness of my response but your review 'ranked' amoung one of the most insulting. Your comment about the price maybe reflects on the type of restaurants... More

Visited a few weeks ago and certainly wasn't blown away. Food was ok, a few vegetarian options of which I had Khatchuri Dhansaak which is usually a personal favourite. The lentil balls were pretty bland and the sauce was quite dry.

Went for a late Christmas party meal with my work colleagues. I ordered the Roast duckling, jambhani haash. This was incredible, the best curry I have ever had! Server was lovely, attentive and funny joking with us! Quite expensive but definitely worth it. Much better than the Juboraj Express, which was an appalling experience, extremely overpriced and frankly disappointing after... More
