Went on a bank holiday night with 2 young kids and it has to be one of the nicest curry restaurants we've been to! Definitely don't judge it by it's exterior. Great, attentive service and no rush to get you out. Reasonable prices, good sized portions and clean. We had a variety of mains with sides... read more

I live in North London but have visited the Basmati quite a few times in the past year as I have been staying with my poorly Mom. I took her there when she was a little better, and we had to ask for help in finding the mildest curry. Everyone was very accomodating. We went again on Sunday with my... More

I had a very tasty takeaway from here while I was staying at the Holiday Inn. Very handy location, just a short walk from the Hotel.

We come here often the service is always good even when it's busy, staff friendly. Food is excellent the only criticism is the dips for poppadoms why are they so cold?

From the front of the holiday inn you can't see what's around you ...but if you go up to the road turn right, then you won't miss the Basmati! As far as hotels go it isn't a bad one but the food leaves a lot to be desired....this will make your night....if you like a curry this is the place.... More
