This is the best upscale Restuarant in the Santa Rosa area! Long way from cheap but worth every dollar! I alway eat the duck cooked rare. It’s better than a prime steak! My wife gets grouper and the portion is huge and cooked to perfection!...Their apps are all good too!More

We were pleased to find a restaurant on a Saturday night that did not need a booking, having been turned away from a couple of others. The staff were attentive and the food was tasty and we did not have to wait long. Glad I...experimented with the goat curry, but will probably return to lamb or chicken next time! Perhaps a bit pricey but comparable with other Chch restaurantsMore

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants I took everyone to when in town. Granted the owner has never been friendly, their reservation system is antiquated and after you’ve eaten there a few times the food doesnt wow you as much but it...is a cute atmosphere and one of the few upscale restaurants we have on 30A. We have been many times where we have made friends with several other people in the restaurant and its always been a fun time. Our last visit there was an entirely different story. We were celebrating a friend’s 50th birthday with a party of 17 people. Knowing we were loud (due to group size,not because we were obnoxious) we bought the lady’s dinner who was also in the dining room with us. She was super appreciative, told us that wasnt needed and wished us a fabulous night and encouraged us to continue to enjoy our night. At this point it had taken 45 minutes to even get our first round of drinks (after going up and asking for someone to take our order) and the appetizers had just been served. The owner had the audacity to come out and shame one of our guests, singling her out and humiliating her and telling us to be quiet. We were literally THE ONLY people in the entire restaurant and it was 9:30 at night so nobody else was coming in. After a heated exchange with the owners we determined they are miserable people. They tried to back track and act as if nothing had happened but it was too late. They wait staff was amazing (as they have always been) and were trying to diffuse the situation only to be shushed by the owner and pulled to the back. Again the lady is just miserable and its always been a joke as to who is going to call for reservations because the owner is so mean and hateful but nothing we couldnt deal with. Treating customers this way is a completely different story. I WILL NEVER VISIT THIS RESTAURANT AGAIN and truly hope the owners will retire and leave the restaurant in better hands, its obviously WAY past time!More

Been eating here for years and the food never changes and that good. It is fantastic. We had the snapper special and medium rare duck. Expensive but worth every dollar. Best Asian food in the area

My husband and I were driving on 30A and saw the sign for Basmati asian cuisine. We called for reservations on Sat night. The service was excellent, always making sure our water glasses were filled. The veg. spring rolls and edamame appetizers were so good....We both got sushi rolls for dinner. It was so tasty and believe me, we eat sushi in Atlanta and are big fans of well prepared and delicious sushi. I highly recommend this restaurant.More

We have been a few times while on vacation and our entire family loves it! Might not be long on atmosphere as it is a very small restaurant inside but the food makes up for it! There is nothing we have had that we didn't...like, especially the duck, outstanding. Please go visit Basmatis!More

A beautiful location on 30A, Basmati's continues to serve up excellently prepared dishes in a cozy atmosphere. I had the firecracker grouper -- very light tempura served over vegetables with a sweet chili sauce. Excellent. My spouse raved about her duck. But the star of...the night was the Florida Roll sushi we shared as an appetizer.More

The food was excellent, the atmosphere was very nice, the drinks were, ok, and the service was ok. Our server seemed like a new hire that wasn’t quite sure what to do. The hostess was a bit abrupt, acting like she wasn’t sure she could...accommodate us without a reservation. Thankfully, she did find a table for us.More

This has always been our favorite 30A place but it’s been three years since we have been to 30A. So, what do we do after we arrive on 30A: the obligatory trip to the grocery and then dinner at Basmati’s! And it did not disappoint!...We love their sushi. We love the firecracker grouper! But we really love the Egg Drop Soup with crab and asparagus and a bit of pepper! We’ll be back on this trip and then the next!More

Came for dinner on Wednesday - New Years Day. We made a reservation with Penny ahead of time to ensure we had a table at 5:30. Brought our 20 year old son for the first time. I had the snapper special which is just phenomenal....Started with veggie sushi roll. My son had the wagyu beef special over mashed potatoes and started with the spring rolls. With high functioning autism, he is extremely picky and loved his dinner. My husband had already eaten so just had the Caesar salad. As always service from Fawn was top notched. We'll miss her while she's on vacation but will be back in March!More
