My wife and I started coming to Basmati about six months ago and we love it. Service is excellent and so is the food. Nothing is too much trouble. We have tried several dishes, all beautifully cooked. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves good food. The atmosphere is always relaxed and that is testament to the staff.... More

Visited Basmati as we were staying at the Premier Inn next door. The meal was delicious, and served by friendly and helpful staff. Thank you.

Was Doing some gardening and cutting a tree in the garden this afternoon so I rewarded myself with family dinner evening at my favourite restaurant. This is the best restaurant for top Indian food in Birmingham. We have been coming here for the past 17 years. You will not be disappointed. I love this place.
