We called in on Friday night we were made to feel very welcome by the waiter who promptly brought out poppadoms and the salad tray. We then quickly ordered our food and drinks. The owner came over to talk to us and made us feel more at home. The food was delivered very quickly and was really good quality tasty... More

This place has been around for a long time and over the years I've visited it and it's one of those places where I've never had a bad meal. Before last night though I probably hadn't been in there for 8 or 9 years when I remember it as dark and dingy but excellent food. We wandered in there last... More

We have visited three times now and the food was outstanding on all three occasions. the staff are friendly and helpful. It can be a bit chilly so take a jumper (staff bring heaters if you need them ) but it is very well worth the effort.

Management response:

Thank you for the review. We are trying our upmost to keep the place warmer as you can appreciate the restaurant has not had a revamp in almost 30 years so we are updating the heating system without causing a nuisance to our loyal and regular diners. Lets hope we have it nice and warm for your next visit. More

Visited Koh I Noor after its refit. It's fresh, clean and bright but still has wall art which is fantastic. Went with a party of 7 and the food was delicious, the service was very attentive and can't wait to return soon. New owners are very friendly and I wish them luck in restoring the best curry house in Newport.

Management response:

Thank you very much for the review and we are glad we decided to keep the wall art as with the new decor and layout it just stands out alot more. Look forward to seeing you soon. More

Food was 45mins late! The delivery man apologised for the lateness and was very genuine. Me and my partner didn't mind the 45min wait, even if food wasn't with us until 9:45 on a Sunday 🙄 Unfortunately it went from bad to worst. My food was bland and almost cold. I had three small pieces of what looked like over... More

The Koh-I-Noor Restaurant is located in Maindee, Newport and I don't think is the best choice for Indian cuisine enthusiasts; The food was average and quite pricey, the service was poor and the interior is very kitchy. Just to add the thing that you can't have a beer because they don't serve alcohol at all and the J2O that I've... More
