Always a friendly welcome - and the food is excellent. Particularly love the prawn dhansak and the nans!

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.

Having heard lots about this place we decided to try it having just moved back into the area. I love Indian cuisine and have tried most in the area over the years with this being one of the last. I have to say I found the food nice, service was very attentive but did notice that it could have been... More

Upon entering the Misbah, it is a little like being transported in time as the interior is quite dated. It would definitely benefit from a refurbishment as it is a little drab inside. We had a very warm welcome though from the staff and what I assume was one of the owners. We asked for a dish that wasn't on... More

What an awful experience this meal was. Recommended by close friends that live a few hundred yards away. How they can honestly receive the super reviews I have seen is beyond me. I have sampled curry in the UK and many other countries since my first meal aged 16 in 1970. Nothing about this meal could be described as offering... More

I normally only review when I'm travelling abroad rather than more local haunts. However this is the fourth time we've been to the Misbah in recent months - and each time it's been excellent. We've been to India several times and appreciate that a lot of the dishes here are not 'toned down', the way they can be in other... More

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
