This place was recommended to us by hotel owner in area, loved the food and the atmosphere and service was fantastic. Everything presented beautifully very reasonable price for so much food and a bottle of wine, we would recommend the restaurant to everyone as the whole experience was great along with the friendly staff

I think this restaurant is billed as the best Indian in Monmouthshire but I'd not be surprised if it's best in Wales. The quirky menu has a variety of dishes not found on Rbt typical Indian menu; staff are always exceptionally friendly and service is efficient. We eat here often; it's just perfect before or after a show or film... More

This was another Trip-Advisor hit! I use Trip Advisor to help me find good restaurant choices when I'm working away from home, and we rather fancied a curry, so we gave Misbah Tandoori a go. The restaurant is an intimate size and the service is very friendly. The two of us eating ordered a main meat and a main veggie... More

So we decided to get away for the night, we stayed just outside Monmouth and were strolling along the main road.... after a cheeky cloudy cider we came across this place. We were greeted by a young man who was very welcoming. We were seated quickly, ordered a bottle of house white and popadoms. The food was excellent, well flavoured... More

Although the jalfrezi was hotter than normal I ate it all tasted delicious as did the prawn purée, I would highly reccomend.

Looking through trip advisor for the best tandoori in Monmouth and the Misbah Tandoori was at the top. After visiting it I can see why, the biggest starting point was the greeting off the staff. Absolutely top start, they even give you free pens! They reassured me that the food and place was the BEST in Monmouth. They were right,... More

after all the great reviews we were expecting something good. but from our wide experience this was poor and unexceptional. the standard rogan josh which should be tasty and full was bland and resembled a tomato stew. our favourite restaurant the Gurkha corner restaurant in Abergavenny is far better. will not be going back.

Arrived very tired after a long drive. The young man serving us was very friendly and helpful. The food was beautiful fresh and very tasty. A good wine list for a small town Indian Restaurant. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant. They have a long list of celebrities who have visited.
