We were driving down from Scotland and stopped in Great Barr at the nearby Premier Inn. Put off by the noise at the Harvester restaurant next door so walked to Basmati. Although the restaurant is a bit unprepossessing outside, we were very glad to have gone in. Excellent Indian restaurant with wonderful and helpful staff. I would recommend it to... More

First went here in 2007 and didn't think it was anything special. Decent food then though. But more recently went here for a meal with my wife and son on a Friday night. Very nicely decorated, modern, clean and beautifully layed out inside. And the food is the best I've tasted ever. Very friendly staff also. And the beer was... More

Always a good sign. Good range of food on the menu. Best veggie thali we've had in ages. Good service - attentive but not... More

There were four of us, each chosing a different dish. We all agreed that the individual curries we enjoyed were the best we had eaten in a long time. It would be... More

Just moved to the area and used this restaurant several times now. The food was fantastic and the staff friendly and attentive. Wonderful welcome and have now introduced this restaurant to friends as well. Great food at good prices but the loyalty card is icing on the cake 10% off on every visit. It will certainly become a regular of... More

Had a meal here whilst staying nearby at the holiday inn. Restaurant was quite, but service and food very good. Price wise I would say this is about normal, and portion sizes good. No hesitation in returning.
