The service and food is excellent at this restaurant and it feels like going home we are made so welcome. I cannot recommend a trip to this restaurant enough once you have been you will certainly come back.

Visited for Sunday buffet. Restuarant was freezing and was being heated with 2 baby fan heaters. Why didn't they warm the place before guests arrived. Food was good and service was good.

We came upon this Indian restaurant by chance as we were staying near by. We had a good meal AND the place was quiet so we could speak to each other

I have been to Basmati before and they are still keeping the standards up. I definitely recommend the Onion Bhajees. The service is quick and efficient and the is very good. If you are staying at the Holiday Inn J7 it is a short walk away.
