Lucky us this is our local and we have been visiting for over 20 years. The staff are always so friendly and the food is totally delicious. Tried out one of the new dishes on the menu and it didn't disappoint, the chicken was so moist and tasty combined with lovely fresh spices and sublime puffed puri. If you love... More

Visited shoboraj this evening. 5 min walk from the ibis budget hotel and in a street of chip shops and take aways this looked the best bet. Very pleasantly surprised. Excellent hosts who poured a couple of beers to taste, helped to choose a nice hot dish to help blow my cold away! Really nice atmosphere where you could tell... More

We have visited the Shoboraj many times before and the first thing you notice is the warmth and greeting from the staff when you enter the restaurant. This personal touch is continued throughout your meal with great service and attention to detail. All staff are polite and attentive and nothing is too much trouble. They have an extensive range of... More

We dined here for the first time but are regular consumers of Indian food around the area. This place is perfectly OK - commercial curry, nicely presented in nice surroundings. But nothing exceptional and,we thought, really rather expensive for what it is. But we would use again if necessary!

Thought I would take my time and read the previous reviews that have given low marks and correct the inaccuracies. No atmosphere?? Well that's not true usually traditional music is played however as it is christmas they are playing festive tunes. Lights too bright?? Again not true the restaurant has low lighting and the ceiling has lights that highlight it.... More

Whether through luck or skill I have been fortunate enough to acquire a local bolt hole that surpasses all expectations of what a decent curry should be. The Shoboraj is a brilliant curry house with polite and wonderful waiting staff and a lovely relaxed ambience. But what sets it apart? - You might be thinking - because I can get... More

A terrible curry had with work colleagues. All agreed that everything was overpriced for what we received. Cold curries, cramped seating and poor service. The only decent element of the meal were the naan breads - they were hot and fresh but everything else was dire.

With the greatest respect your comments are in stark contrast to our reviews. We are a family led business and we have a very experienced team front of house and kitchen. We ask that you provide evidence of the night that YOU came IN for dinner so that we may check it against our CCTV footage. We see that SOMETHING... More

Been going here for years and can honestly say it's the best restaurant in Newport - believe me we've tried all the other 'rated' Newport curry houses. Staff are lovely and food, prepared from scratch is tasty, varied, hot and so flavoursome.
