Having had bad experiences at other restaurants like TGI's we went to Taste of Asia instead and loved it as usual. we often have takeaway but its great to sit in too. The staff are friendly and it feels more like you are visiting close friends or family coming in here. Food is always awesome. Never had a bad meal in Taste of Asia.

Newport’s best Indian by far. The place looks beautiful with its new refit decor, so you are made to feel welcome and very comfortable on arrival. The food, well….have had many cuisines from Indian restaurants all over the world, and Newport itself produces some of the finest. But what makes the difference here is the food is a level above every other Indian. Taste of Asia….the title of the establishment says it all really. Make a visit, or grab a takeaway. You will not be disappointed. Food, service, atmosphere - all first class!!

First time I’ve been here for years so glad I did food was amazing. I had bhaji Bahar a sizzling vegetarian dish with extra massala sauce and cauliflower bhaji. Husband had fish baliti. Garlic naan and egg fried rice were also good. Portions were generous Chef cooks food fresh in view of the restaurant. Have eaten at many Indian restaurants this is definitely one of the best!

We have used this restaurant for deliveries on a Saturday night for many years and never had reason to change. The food has always been exquisite and the service excellent so we visited for a sit down meal to celebrate my wife's birthday with a few friends and family and they all agreed with us that everything is first class. Thank you Hussain, family and staff for an excellent evening.

Tasty authentic Indian meal. I had the taka taka tin which was a 1st for me and recommended by our server Tasty shards of chicken tikka cooked in spices with a delicious curry sauce on the side highly recommended and my wife had the butter chicken again very tasty. Its fair to say both dishes were plentiful as was the mushroom fried rice and beautiful garlic nan. The staff were very friendly and the chef enquired about how we enjoyed the meal which was a nice touch. Best Indian meal we've had in a long time. I definitely recommend and will certainly go back.

My wife and I stopped by early evening (approx. 6pm) and were greeted in warm manner and shown to a table. Shortly after taking our seats we were offered drinks, poppadoms and a chutney tray, all of which arrived in no time time at all. It should be noted that the drinks offering is limited to soft drinks and mocktails, although you are allowed to bring your own alcoholic drinks if you so wish. We shared the onion bhaji and kebab cocktail starters; both of which were lovely, with special mention given to the sauce accompanying the kebab cocktail!! For mains, I opted for the Chicken Tikka Jalfrazi and Pilau rice and my wife chose the Chicken Tikka Main (dry). Both our mains arrived shortly after we had finished our starters, although not to soon as to feel rushed. The Jalfrazi was spicy, but full of flavour and so not overtaken by the heat. The portion size for both the curry and the rice was more than ample, with the dish as a whole being extremely enjoyable! My wife’s Chicken Tikka main was huge both in size and flavour; and whilst I only sampled a mouthful of chicken, which I enjoyed, my wife said the whole dish was equally enjoyable! The decor in the restaurant appeared fresh and created a lovely atmosphere, which was topped off with some thoughtful background music. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our spontaneous visit to The Taste of Asia, and will certainly be back there soon!

Lovely meal this evening, 1 chicken dhansak (spicy but not too hot, a nice balance of flavours) 1 chicken punjabi original balti ( very tasty). Garlic naan, basmati rice, one half and half and a poppadoms tray to start. Service very good and the chef came to check if all ok with our meals a nice touch. You can take your own alcoholic drinks as it is not licensed but they do serve soft drinks. A great curry house which is reasonably priced our bill was just under £40 and the portion sizes were very good. A definite place to return to.

Beautiful food! I ordered medium Tikka Rogon Josh and my wife ordered a mild Makhani - we were both very impressed with the taste and presentation. They don't serve alcohol but they are happy for you to buy it next door and bring it in to have with your meal.

Having enjoyed a few delicious meals in Taste of Asia I approached them to cater for a big birthday celebration, 90 guests. Although outside catering is not their usual business they were brilliant. The team were a delight to deal with and went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. They helped plan a great menu, delivered, helped me set up and designed lovely cards to explain dishes to our guests. Lots of guests commented on the wonderful food and the fact that it was clear to everyone what was vegan and/or gluten free made it stress free for guests with dietary needs. We enjoyed Beef Bhuna, Chicken Pasanda, Chana Dhansak (raved about by the veggies and meat eaters alike!), bhajis and samosas - all delicious and freshly prepared and cooked ready for service. I'll continue to be a regular customer in the restaurant and highly recommend them for a meal in the restaurant or if you want great catering for a bigger do. Many thanks to Hussain and the whole team!

Absolutely gorgeous food, and outstanding service. I've travelled around the UK a lot with work and always like to try the locally recommended Indian restaurants and nothing anywhere ever comes close to Taste of Asia. It's the best Indian food I've tasted anywhere. Bags of flavour and a great varied menu. The staff are extremely friendly and attentive, it's such a pleasure to go there. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Amazing experience and the most delicious Indian food! We had a collection special which is 2 curries, 2 rice, Naan bread, 2 poppadoms, mint sauce and onion salad … all for £17.95! The food was hot, not greasy at all and full of meat. The staff were very attentive and the restaurant was really busy. Our new favourite curry house!

Hands down the best Indian restaurant in South Wales. The curries are exquisite and flavorful. Can’t find better anywhere else. The chef is very experienced and accommodating. He will modify any dish from the menu and tailor it according to your desire.
