Have been to this restaurant many times meals always live up to expectations a bit more expensive than other indians in the area but worth paying a bit extra for good service

I have been eating at Shoboraj for over 20 years. Owned by two brothers who genuinely care about their customers, you are guaranteed the very best food and service anywhere around. The quality of the food is consistently excellent, tasty and diverse, served in relaxing surroundings by Sonny, Sam and their team of attentive waiters. If you enjoy good quality... More

Excellent food, attentive friendly service without being overbearing and immaculately neat and tidy. I had the veg thali and each dish was well seasoned and distinct. A winner if ever in Newport!

As a freelance IT consultant ive worked and eaten in places from Oban to Plymouth and Fishguard to Ipswich and these guys are the benchmark I use and few beat them. The last time I was there it was... More

Unable to find fault. Very good food and always a warm and happy atmosphere. Very laid back. This was my 4th visit and have tried other similar restaurants within the same area over the past year or so but can honestly say the Shoboraj knocks spots of it's competition. Highly recommended. 10/10
