Always good for a take-away or an eat-in. Staff are attentive, sound local and very friendly without being obsequious. Food very tasty without being a ring-tingler.

I've lived in this area for over 30 years and eaten many curries in and around but not here. It really is quite ordinary looking from the outside, but, don't let this deter you. Inside, you'll have a warm welcome and time to peruse an extensive menu. Service was a little slow, but, if your food is being freshly prepared... More

I'm hugely biased. I've tried other Indians in Newport (and much further afield - I lived in London for eight years and never found an Indian as good as the Shoboraj in Newport) and I always return to the Shoboraj. Chunu and Sammi are always friendly and welcoming. The food is always excellent and, as far as I can tell,... More

Went with my family to celebrate my birthday after reading the great reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. The food was plentiful (enough for a doggy bag) and very flavorsome! Whilst the service was slow and the popadoms pricey the food was well presented and beautifully tasty. The staff were friendly and helpful. We can't wait to... More

All the usual dishes you would expect from such a restaurant, but a great Specialities section. Food was of an excellent standard and the service was superb also. Highly recommended and fully deserving of it's rating

I have been to the Shoboraj for many years now and can only ever say good things about this restaurant. The food is always consistently brilliant. They will adjust spiciness for the customer according to taste. This restaurant betters most curry houses I have ever been to especially the ones I went to when living in London and the South...

Easily the best Indian restaurant in South Wales. No matter where we have tried, we always return to the Shoboraj. The friendliest staff who remember your face and are always welcoming and happy to have a quick chat, no matter how busy the restaurant is they ensure you are welcomed. We visit here on a regular basis and have never... More
