“Verey good indian meal.”

Friendly service and welcome. Food was very good. The restaurant is quite small, around 30 covers so best to book up. I would definitely return if I was in the area again.

“Best Indian ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Misbah is hands down the best Indian around. So many speciality dishes to try and all are unique and delicious. If you're visiting Monmouth you have to take a stop here!!

“A fortunate stop - great food and surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

The food was as good as this reviewer has ever had, which considering the boast that it's the best in Wales is quite a coup. Those boasts often end in epic fails! If I had to criticise all I could pick up on was the very affable waiter calling us "guys" when addressing us.
Anyway, go. You'll love it.

“Crowded restaurant with average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

A very small establishment. Went there as a group for a former colleague's leaving party. So small that takeaway customers were always pushing past. Clean and well presented. Claims to have served many musical stars during their sessions at the nearby Rockfield Studios.
