I have bee going to Basmati Restaurant for many years now; I guess you could say most of the celebrations in my family have been under the dim light and soft music in Basmati! However, last visit was with my current partner, who had already heard so much about my favourite Indian Restaurant that he was happy to give it a go - he did not know, however, that Basmati was soon to become one of his favourite restaurants ever, too!
Where shall I start? Shahin's neverending hospitality starts from the moment you cross the door. The flower petals sprinkled all over the floor and the tables, and the lovely Indian decoration turn it into what I consider to be one of the most romantic restaurants ever: if you're after a romantic dinner do not hesitate, Basmati is the one for you!
The delicious food, propped with the amicable wine which never keeps flowing, makes the evening almost fly away! I especially love Shahin's thoughtfoul explanations on everything he brings out; I have been going for many years now and trust me, I never get tired of the menu because it is forever changing!
Before I went to India last year Shahin said to me: -Trust me, you will miss my food - and boy was he right! This is a truly innovative and creative style of cooking so if you just want your cheap and unflavored curry, do not come here!!
If however, you want delicious food in a beautiful restaurant by a welcoming and smily chef, Basmati is the place for you.
