“No where else like it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

I had been going to Basmati for around 4-5 years before I moved to the Cotswolds. I have lived here for 2 years and also tried Indian restaurants and takeaways across the west, central and the midlands and nothing has come close to Basmati.
You are greeted by Pristine and friendly staff (sometimes the manager), offered a drink (uncharged) if you are awaiting a take away, the atmosphere is very traditional and warming and finally the food is nothing but fresh, authentic and fragrant cuisine - always on form.

I still to this day make excuses to visit family just to go to Basmati, it's always a pleasure.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

I have recommende by my friend (who is loyalty card holder of basmati) to visit basmati for curry and i must say it was excellent all around. I have received a warm welcome followed by a nice beer and papadams i ordere murgh jaipure that was full of of taste and flavoured and papadams served with Palau rice. It was medium spicy and i amenjoyed it to bits. I recommend all if you are after a proper Indian curry and good atmosphere in a reasonable cost. They have hundreds of choices to choose. From.i I am going back soon with my family.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We have been regulars at this restaurant for some years and have never had a bad experience. The food is always fresh and tasty and the waiters really friendly and helpful. The all you can eat Sunday lunchtime buffet for £8.95 is really excellent value for money with a good choice of starters, side dishes and mains whish are regularly topped up. The main menu offers a lot of choice mixing traditional Indian fayre with chefs specials and veggies are well catered for too. We have recently joined their customer loyalty scheme giving a 10% discount - they even gave me a free bottle of house wine for my birthday!

You feel welcome and the food is excellent. Is a perfect alternative to the always busy Harvester restaurant next door.
