“Fine Indian Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The Misbah has been under the same ownership for more than twenty years. Offering Bangladeshi cuisine they have established themselves a very good reputation in Monmouth... There is always a friendly welcome & good food is assured. The menu consists of the usual staple curry classics together with a range of signature dishes ranging from mild to the hottest. Prices are reasonable.
Tastefully furnished & always immaculate.
You are unlikely to be disappointed.

Consistently very good food and service - we always aim to have a meal from the Misbah whenever in Monmouth. Onion salad deserves a special mention!
