"Heard good things about this place from some friends, and they were right! The restaurant is hidden away in Locks Heath shopping centre but there is plenty of parking available. It's a really beautiful looking restaurant but as we were short on time, we decided on a takeaway. My favourite dish is normally a chicken dansak, and this one didn't disappoint! Fantastic flavour while not being too sweet. Starters were a decent sized portion. Naan was nice and fluffy! Salad and veg were fresh. Will be back to eat in!"
"Do not miss this "hidden gem" in Lockheath shopping centre. An truly excellent dining experience in this tastefully decorated restaurant [no annoying or intrusive music] with attentive and courteous staff, excellent choice of cuisine suitable for all tastes, freshly prepared and efficiently served. This is REAL Indian cuisine at its best - the chef should be congratulated on his expertise and selection of dishes. Excellent price especially given the quality of the food and the ambience of the restaurant makes for a relaxing and pleasurable evening. Only problem ? You will probably need a bigger table to accommodate all your food as the choice is SO good. Basmati's Peshwari Naan bread is to die for ! Basmati's take away service is fast, efficient and the food is exactly the same as you would get in the restaurant. Thank you to all the staff who always make our visits so very pleasurable."
"BEST INDIAN RESTAURANT IN THE AREA”
"There is always a friendly welcome at Basmati, which always makes it a pleasant experience just being there. The food is always excellent and they are always happy to make the meals slightly milder or spicier to suit you tastes if required and I would say excellent value for money. The restaurant is always clean and tidy with lovely decor so it is a pleasant atmosphere to have a meal. Weekends can get very busy so always worth booking."
"GREAT SERVICE, GREAT FOOD"
"A great night out once again, the food is always tasty and well presented and the service never disappoints. The cost is always reasonable and we would recommend the Basmati without reservation."
