Finally a good restaurant serving Indian and sun continent cuisine. As an Indian food lover the one thing this island was missing was a good restaurant, basmati was and has been exceptional every time. With a good selection in the set menu, you won't leave dissatisfied!

We went here for dinner last night (Christmas Day) and it was exceptional. As soon as we walked in the smell was amazing, there was rose petals everywhere, it was so romantic. The owner chatted with us and could not have been more friendly. The food was fabulous, we thoroughly enjoyed every course, my partner doesn't usually eat fish but... More

This is by far the best and authentic indian food I have had and I am a foodie who was born in India. You don't get a menu book full of 100s of items like you do at other Indian restaurants. The menu here is preset and cooked to perfection. The price is not very high either. You get two... More

You Pay 30 Euros and get enough food for your appetite plus Free Water and a bottle of very good Red wine. Unfortunately my gf is still breastfeeding... More

We were ever so slightly tempted to walk away when realising that we would be unable to choose our food that night. So glad we stayed now. What a beautiful place! Trust your host. He's very passionate and brave about his food. The service was delightful and the ambiance perfect for our final night in Palma. So glad we found... More

We visited the Basmati based on tripadvisor reviews and we certainly weren't disappointed. Despite not booking, we were warmly greeted on arrival and informed about the values of the restaurant and the set menu that would be on offer. For the price of 31.50 euros each we were treated to 4 fantastic courses and a bottle of house red. The... More
