My husband and I went for a weekend city beak to Palma and on the Friday evening we discovered this amazing place by chance.

Great food and plenty of new spices that we had never tried. Rice was aromatic and the bread was delicious. The restaurant was too dark and we could hardly see the food but everything else was perfect. Try it.

Everything about the total culinary experience at Basmati is 5☆Mr. Shahin and his team presented me and my golf buddy a wonderful meal, a warm, welcome and attention to service that is quite unparallelled, coupled with quite unbelievable value. Where to start...... the restaurant is simply wonderfully decorated, rose petals adorn the enterance and are all over the tables, lighting... More

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!

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
