We arrived at the restaurant about 7 ish for a takeaway and whilst waiting we decided to eat in instead, the people couldn't do enough for us. Excellent place to live

The Basmati is our ‘must go’ place for a curry whether it be for a takeout or dining in. We have been using The Basmati for over 15 years. The food is always fresh, delicious and hot and still remains consistent from all the years we have been using them. The menu is extensive if you’re looking to try out new food. The food always comes out within very good time and we never feel rushed when dining in. Whether it be a small or large party of people The Basmati caters for all. My husband celebrated his 30th birthday here with a party of 25 people, I could not fault the food or service even though there was such a large number of us. People from our group who had never been here before commended the food saying it was “the best curry I’d ever eaten”. The service they provide is impeccable and we always receive a warm friendly welcome. The staff are a credit to this place they are friendly, helpful and very efficient. My only criticism is that the decor needs to be updated, although this does not deter me from visiting here at all. I would not hesitate to recommend The Basmati to anyone looking for a superb curry in a warm, relaxed atmosphere.

We were a family of six and booked in early on a Saturday evening. Everything was very good the starters of onion bhaji and mixed tandoori. We all had different mains duck, lamb shank, fish. Everyone rated their meals highly. Good food, good friendly service at a very reasonable price. Super.

We went for dinner with family friends, 7 of us. Ambiance was OK, bit out dated. too many waiter standing and watching but no one willing to come to table. Only when pointed out by manager they started moving.
Starters - Cold, very mild, not at all authentic
Main Course - again, Cold, very very mild, No salt at all. Naan/Chapati/Parantha, all of them not cooked properly, u can see the uncooked dough on the sides. When pointed it out, they said, chef is in hurry to make food.
Price - highly over priced. we spent £80, without any drinks
To be honest, don't even think about going there.

Worst judgement of all time ..!

One may not like our food or ambiance but don't have the right to make a awful negative review to discourage our potential customers. We are trading here for 17 years and hold a excellent reputation for our quality of food and outstanding service AS A BENGALI CUISINE and it's massively reflect on our overall reviews from tripadvisor community.

We encourage people to make constructiove review and also has the measures in place to ensure quality and stands are sustained for every diners on their every visit.

We condemn such purposely placed negative reviews and request diners to take consideration of positive reviews.

We work tirelessly to ensure every diners leave the restaurant with satisfaction.

Thank You
