“Always reliable”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We have been eating at this brilliant restaurant since it opened. Mainly we have Take-aways, but have also eaten in the restaurant. It is the standard by which I judge all Tandoori and this can never be beaten. The menu is one to suit all tastes and new entries are made from time to time. This really is the best and I would recommend to anyone. It is a big favourite as well whenever our family are visiting.Today I collected a take-away which was still piping hot by the time I got it home (15 minutes away, by car) I had one of my favourites - Zahan Special - vegetarian dish absolutely packed with a variety of vegetables and chick peas - yum!

“Good Reliable Tandoori”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We have been eating in and taking out at the Misbah for a number of years and the food is great. It is very rare that they slip up and the service is always outstanding as well. The quality and variety of dishes is good withot being excessive or monochrome. Certainly have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

“Great Balti experience”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Having lived within a short distance of Birmingham's famed Balti Triangle for many years we have been delighted to discover the Misbah on our new doorstep here in Monmouth. The quality of food and the friendliness of the proprietor and his son have made it a place that we look forward to visiting every week, every bit as good as the best that Birmingham has to offer.

I have been going to the Misbah for many years now and have never had a bad experience and have taken many friends here before and they have said that this is truly the best indian they have ever had. The food and the service was always excellent, very nice atmosphere. Keep up the good work :)
