This has been our local Indian takeaway/restaurant for the last 8yrs we don't eat every week from here (I wish!) But we've not once had a bad meal! The staff are lovely the food quality is outstanding, without doubt this is the best Indian in Newport.

Had a very pleasant curry here - Chicken Achari - with tasty okra and onion bhajis. Service was excellent. Can't say much for the location though. Had to park up a side street and couldn't believe how much litter there was around.

You could easily drive past as the restaurant doesn't stand out or look the most modern Indian restaurant but you won't regret stopping. The service is spot on, the perfect balance of polite conversation, knowledge and explanation of each dish. The pickles are beautiful. The passanda was incredibly flavoursome (which I understand was down to added fermented pineapple and papaya),... More

Yet again, another tasty takeaway from the Shoboraj. We were warned that we may have to wait for an hour for our order as they were busy. It arrived after forty five minutes. It is not the cheapest Indian but you definitely pay for quality. The portions are generous and the chicken is of a high quality which is a... More

I have had a takeaway from the Shoboraj when visiting the in-laws so was quite intrigued to see what they would be like in a restaurant environment. As is was a Saturday night we booked, and good job we did. There was already three big parties (8+ people per table) in when we got there at 7. We did notice... More

We've tried every indian in the Newport area since we moved here and this indian is definitely the best by far. As the weather was crap we decided to have a takeaway delivered. Yet again these guys never fail to deliver a delicious indian meal. Definitely recommend it to everyone in the Newport area.

I hadn't visited the Shobiraj for many years and went with the family tonight based on the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Our meal was excellent. The menu is varied with a few different dishes to the norm - I had a kebab cocktail to start followed by a nawabi chicken masala; both were very nice indeed. Service was good throughout.... More

I have visited this restaurant many times as the food is always good, last night I visited with friends, a mixed group of adults and children. Everybody cleared their plates. The meals were delicious, obviously freshly prepared with good quality ingredients. The staff are lovely. Don't be taken in by flashier, more expensive curry houses, you cannot beat this place!

The Shoboraj is a fantastic restaurant that anyone who loves Indian food should try. Extensive menu and fabulous staff who really care about you having a great eating experience. We eat there at least once a month and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else in town. Keep up the good work guys - we love it!
