We were hesitant as during the day the outside appearance isn't that inviting so I am glad we went as once you entered the service, decor and food were all top class and reasonably priced. And yes the food was... More

After sampling the poor food and service at the nearby Harvester (do not go in there!) on the first night I went to Basmati following recommendations from Premier staff. the difference was marvellous!
