The Misbah is a favourite restaurant. Food and service have always been excellent and I enjoy its low key charm. Good but understated. It's only fair to say that it recently received a poorish report for its hygiene, which surprised me, I suspect this is a blip that has already been remedied.

We did indeed take a blip in our hygiene score however in our re-visit by the health inspectors we have achieved the highest score of 5. We take great care in our food safety and hygiene and this was reflected in their visit. We... More

Moved into the area today, so was looking for something tasty and somewhere relaxing. Well, we hit it first time. Service was efficient and friendly. Prices were reasonable, and they have a great selection on their menu. The food was tasty, and the portions good. They are a tastecard venue, so it is possible to have greater value, and they...

We arrived before 2 of the party so ordered up our drinks and poppadoms for everyone, the other... More

We visited the Misbah for a takeaway while on a short break in Monmouth. We called to order the meal at 7.15PM and we told it would be ready for 8.20PM. It was eventually ready at 8.45PM but I have to say the wait was worth it. The staff kept apologizing for the wait as they were very busy. I... More

Having read so many good things about this place thought we would try it out, well I'll say average at best really quite bland and also expensive for what you get, 3 of us one aged 15 bottle of wine 2 cokes and main coarse only £75 and poor service, there are much better Indian restaurants around than this.

Firstly, WOW! The Misbah Tandoori is definitely a must-visit Indian restaurant! Me, my husband and 5 month old daughter were recently staying at Forest Holidays: Forest of Dean site and we knew that we were 1) not cooking on holiday and 2) definitely going to want a takeaway curry! We turned to trusty Trip Advisor in search of somewhere decent... More

We eat here fairly regularly, or pop in for a takeaway as we live just around the corner. Superb food and service without fail.
