It's a set meal, be open to new flavours, they are very mild curries not your ear bashing madras. Think it was about €30 for 9 course including wine, coffee and dessert

We end up in Basmati as we fancied some Indian food and got attracted by the nice comments in TripAdvisor. We are Indian food lovers and everywhere we go we always try to have the local Indian restaurant if any and specially if it is an Indian restaurant different from the typical tandoori 9€ menu of the day kind of...

If you are in Palma and you are a fan of Indian food, then this is a MUST! Every detail of the restaurant was perfect, down to to the candle lighting! To say that this is the best Indian food I have ever had is an understatement. It was one of the best meals! The fixed priced menu is very... More

This is how Indian food should be! My wife and I found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. There is a set menu every night which costs 31.50 per person, which includes 4 courses, wine and water. What a bargain! Each course is brought out by the head chef who explains the the dish and how it... More

This is certainly the best service I've ever had at a restaurant. Me and my girlfriend actually discussed how excellent the service seemed, and descided to test them a little bit. We quickly drank up our glasses of water and 10 seconds later the waitress came over to fill them. I haven't been to a michelin restaurant yet but I... More

We went for this restaurant after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor. We arrived at 8:00, just when the restaurant opened, and got a good table even though we had not made a reservation. The first impression was awesome - the interior had an authentic, romantic design, complete with rose petals on the tables and on the floor in the entrance.... More

I am a real wimp when it comes to hot curry but this was the exception. I was persuaded by mine host to try some of the hot sauces which are supplied for you to try/add as you like. With a certain amount of trepidation I sampled the first one which was indeed hot but at the same time addictive.... More

We wanted good Indian food, and Basmati was just a great spot to get it. Nice atmosphere, great prices, and lovely food. Only drawback was the free wine, it was rather bland, would prefer to pay a bit more and get a better wine. Otherwise just perfect.
