“Decent nosh....”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Always good for a take-away or an eat-in.

Staff are attentive, sound local and very friendly without being obsequious. Food very tasty without being a ring-tingler.

“Why have I not been here before ?”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

I've lived in this area for over 30 years and eaten many curries in and around but not here. It really is quite ordinary looking from the outside, but, don't let this deter you. Inside, you'll have a warm welcome and time to peruse an extensive menu. Service was a little slow, but, if your food is being freshly prepared so be it ! Food presentation is really impressive as is the taste and flavour. Portion size is good too - and what we couldn't eat we took home to enjoy, and we did, later. We also came home with their take away menu - they deliver too! Really pleased to visit the Shoboraj and experience some really flavoursome food- would certainly recommend to others and will return.

“Consistently excellent for over 15 years”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

I'm hugely biased. I've tried other Indians in Newport (and much further afield - I lived in London for eight years and never found an Indian as good as the Shoboraj in Newport) and I always return to the Shoboraj. Chunu and Sammi are always friendly and welcoming. The food is always excellent and, as far as I can tell, made from scratch (unlike most Indians that use base sauces bought in bulk) using fresh herbs and spices, and quality meat. The portions are generous and there's always plenty to take home. Recommend: prawn puri to start with murgi masala for main. Top notch, guys. Keep up the good work.

“Great birthday feast”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

Went with my family to celebrate my birthday after reading the great reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed.
The food was plentiful (enough for a doggy bag) and very flavorsome! Whilst the service was slow and the popadoms pricey the food was well presented and beautifully tasty.
The staff were friendly and helpful. We can't wait to return again.
