Top service and quality food

We have visited this restaurant many times over the past 5 years. Every meal has been tasty and seems to have excellent quality ingredients. I prefer chicken and find theirs to be succulent never rubbery, which has not been my experience in all Indian restaurants. The choice of wine is good and is... read more

Exceptional food and service, highly recommend to any that long for authentic Indian food and hospitality. Arrived in Langstone at 21:00, rang at 22:30 to enquire service, welcomed us at 23:00 with friendly warm smiles not distracted by times

This was our first visit to the Shoboraj which we chose after reading the trip advisor reviews. We enjoyed a wonderful meal with great service from the two busy staff members. The restaurant was nearly full on a Wednesday evening and it was only later we found out that they were short staffed by 2 waiters. That makes the service... More

Ours was a very last-minute Friday evening booking for five people but luckily they were able to accommodate us. The restaurant is small and it was busy and 'buzzing' (always a good sign) - the welcome was very friendly, the service very good and the food even better. The group consensus was that it was one of the best Indian... More
