The owner is so nice and authentic! We where a big group with a vegan and a vegetarian, which they had no problem with taking care of. The food was so GOOD! Then naan bread with spices and dried food was the best I ever had. Everything else was amazing as well. A TRUE EXPERIENCE!

I must have eaten at over 100 curry houses and this is one of the best. If you visit Palma you must visit. The chef explains no cream or pastes used everything cooked form fresh which is important for me. Excellent, amazing in fact! Please visit

The restaurant is pleasantly small and cosy. Lovely to be welcomed by rose leaves on the stairs and tables. Shahin is warm and personable and an excellent cook! I enjoyed the different dishes that were served a lot. Knowing everything is made of fresh and pure ingredients is a great joy! Some of them come from his own garden. Lovely!

My wife Emma and I visited Basmati after speaking with the wonderful and passionate owner Shahin. From the first moment you walk into the restaurant the kitchen aromas are wonderful. We received a lovely welcome from Shahin and he gave us an overview and insight into his kitchen and cooking methods. The decor in the restaurant is lovely and traditional,... More

This is so much more than a restaurant! It is an experience of fine dining and genuine hospitality that is delivered by the happy faced passionate Shahin with unfailing consistency.

Went here with a few friends. Amazing hospitality but the food was below average. The food had no taste. Please do not go here if you are looking out for a good Indian food meal.

Shahin's culinary skills are nothing short of incredible! Without sounding cheesy, they make food for the soul, made with a lot of heart! The meal we had was astonishingly good; the flavours and textures and aromas were to die for. Each dish was made with real attention to detail and they all complimented each other to form a beautiful menu.... More
