Great atmosphere, went for full course veg menu. Good sized portions, the starters were epic. Tandoori fish and chicken. Very appetizing with some great chutney. The sweet dish didnt seem very typical indian, but nonetheless ok. Would definetly come back here again!

Excellent food & surroundings.. Top end of money @ 31.50 Euros each, Next time in Palma I will be looking for a more traditional Indian restaurant to be able to compare.

A lovely setting and great service but the flavours disappointed. The food seems to be made with good quality produce but it was very lightly spiced to the point of not having enough flavour. Note I'm referring to the use of spices but not how spicy/piquant it was. A shame as it's a nice venue.

Beautiful decor and ambience, obviously a lot of thought and money has gone into this. Set menu which is fine, includes red wine and the price is reasonable. The sauces are absolutely brilliant, much better than any ordinary Indian restaurant, however the meats were not impressive, both the chicken and the beef had the appearance of either being pre-cooked or...

Far exceeded my expectations. Fixed menu so wasn't sure quite what to expect, however great value for what turned out to be quite a wide selection of delicious fresh and some unique dishes. Great ambience and fantastic service. I would have no hesitation in recommending. The owner / host is charming and very warm and welcoming. Splendid interior.

We really wanted some great Indian food so we booked st Basmati, having passed by it several times. We weren't prepared for their style of food or menu. We had great service and a good explanation of the food. I'm not sure we would go back as it's not the style of Indian food we look for, but the food... More

The restaurant was nicely decorated with roses and candles. For dinner they serve a menu chosen by the chef. It was an amazing cuisine and full of flavor. Drinks were included and the price was very affordable. Excellent service and the extraordinary cooking made our dinner a very pleasant experience. Please try!!

What a wonderful experience. Food excellent and charming host. The chef/owner comes and explains the food. It is a set menu with a bottle of wine for €31.5. And is incredible value. The restaurant is beautifully designed and very comfortable. There is such attention to detail. Even the water jug is a delight. I highly recommend this experience.
