This is a locally family run curry house. Very welcoming & friendly. Staff very attentive and took the time to stand and have a chat. Food was superb some of the best I've ever had. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a great curry, traditional Indian beer and friendly surroundings.

We wanted an Indian Restaurant to eat at to Celebrate my Wife's Birthday and decide on Shoboraj because of the good reviews and we do not know the area. You do wonder if your experience will be as people have written in their reviews, well from the moment we entered the restaurant we knew we had made a good choice.... More

Tried to order a takeaway for the last few month but the menu on their website doesn't work. I rung to ask if there was a menu anywhere else and was told they knew it didn't work and it's the same food as all indian takeaways. I was actually more intrigued at the price. Gave my order anyway and then... More

On a golf break at Celtic Manor and decided to forgo their superb, but expensive, restaurants. So glad I did. This is one of the best 'Indian' meals I've had (being in my fifties and from Birmingham there's a large library to compare) Very warm welcome and there was a feeling of people enjoying themselves without intruding on other diners...

Newport is lucky in that we have many a good Indian restaurant. Shoboraj though,is a great one. Have been coming here for many a year with my wife,friends and family and have yet to have a bad meal. The warm welcome offered by the owners and staff only heightens the experience and service always feels personal even when they are... More

I visited this restaurant on a very wet and windy Monday night and was encouraged to see that there was a fair number of customers already there. I have sampled this cuisine all over the UK over many years and can report that here the food was excellent. It was perhaps a bit on the pricey side due to lack... More

Reading the reviews we were expecting a lot from this place and we were disappointed. The parking is awful and the premises is small and cramped. The staff are friendly enough but rush your order and serving your food which I don't like. The starter was cold, but overall the food was average and I have had a lot better... More

The Shoboraj is exactly what every curry house should be. Nothing pretentious. Just excellent food in a small and comfortable restaurant with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
