Visited on New Years Eve and despite becoming increasingly busy we were served promptly and courteously by the unflappable staff. The food is second to none and on this occasion I had the lamb shank which was served in a very tasty sauce.My friend reported that his chicken dhansak was the best he'd had.There are several dishes here that I've...

Went to the Basmati for the first time on a snowy Boxing Day night, despite having lived in Great Barr for some time. The staff were really welcoming even though the restaurant was quiet and our food was hot, fresh and very tasty. Will definitely return and would recommend to friends,

My mom and I visited a while ago, and she was sceptical because she doesn't usually like Indian food, but she loved her grilled chicken. Easily accessible with a car... More

Visited basmati for my birthday. The staff were friendly and made my family, including my 2 year old very welcome. The food was excellent and the service was also top notch. I have no complaints what so ever and look forward to going again very soon.

As a regular at Holiday Inn, I go over with colleagues and on my own. The service is excellent, very friendly and warm. I have a starter and main with Keema, the food is always very good, one of the best flavours and texture to Bengali food I have ever had. Make sure you try the Nagis Kebab !. Happy... More
