“Good to be back”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

For some reason I had not eaten in the Misbah for quite a while but on the Bank Holiday I felt in need of a good curry and so it was time to return. Despite the absence there was a warm welcome awaiting us and weeper used the menu over the poppadom tray, ( the best in Monmouth) . Eventually the tricky decision was made and we sat back and took in the view while we waited for our food. As expected the quality was excellent. No one size fits all curry sauce here but distinct flavours can be enjoyed. The service was friendly and attentive, the food good... What more could we want? We'll be back soon

“Good food (not great), but slow service”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

The food is nice...but not special, the service is slow. We ate in the restaurant and had a take away a week later... For the takeaway we were told 20mins, and arrived in time, but it took another 30 minute wait to get the food, no apologies, no complementary drink while we waited. So nice food... But arrogant service.

“Week in, week out, Misbah must be the best Tandoori in Wales.”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Great food, impeccable service and welcoming staff, we have never been disappointed by Misbah, for sit-in or take away. We have made a point of trying as many restaurants in and around Monmouth as possible, but Misbah is our go-to venue. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
