Excellent indian restaurant in Palma with a set four-course menu, that changes from day to day. In reality the meal had eight courses, as the tandoori starter both had chicken and tuna (or beef) and the main course consisted of four different curries, in our...More

It was our first time in an Indian restaurant and we've really enjoyed it. The menu was balanced and tasty, although the desserts were a little bit disappointing.

This place is always spot on in my opinion. The food is great and the service is top notch although I'd recommend going at lunch-time - the food just tastes better for some reason.

Dinner at Basmati was a real treat. We were surprised (and a little nervous) to learn that the only dining option was a fixed price menu, but we were NOT disappointed. It was, perhaps, the best Indian food I have ever eaten and the extra...More

Great night. Worth the effort and great experience. We enjoyed it no end. If you are undecided (as we were) just do it - you'll not regret it. Bit more expensive than others nearby but the quality far outweighs.

Outstanding experience. Probably the best Indian restaurant we've ever been to. The 32 euro menu includes a lot of delicious food, even if it was an "all you can eat" restaurant we would have eaten the same quantity of food and we left a few...More

Explosion of flavours, wonderful different tastes, the experience was truly amazing. The set up menu is quiet pricey but you get given a LOT for it so it's worth treating yourself to it, really! Very accomodating for vegetarians, very romantic atmosphere and high standard service....More
