So good there had to be three, Basmati is a name you can trust in Indian dining. With three locations – you’ll find this branch in Chichester and two others in Petworth and Locks Heath – and a reputation that spans across West Sussex, this popular Indian restaurant is a name you can trust. Found on Westergate’s Nyton Road, Basmati is one of the biggest curry hotspots in the Chichester area, drawing in diners from even further afield to their sophisticated dining space. Recommended dishes at Basmati include their wild lemon lamb, apricot chicken and their tandoori butter chicken, known to be the best version of this dish around town. Book a table ahead of time to beat the crowd!
Great food with a good range of choices. Efficient and friendly service and overall a nice atmosphere in which to dine. We have visited several times and have never been let down.
A mid week visit. Great food and service. I had the chicken tikka biryani & my husband had the chicken tikka balti; both delicious. Left feeling full and will visit again.
The service and food are both excellent. We have been using this restaurant now for the past three years and they haveain't aimed very high standards throughout. Looking forward to going back soon!
We are regular visitors to this restaurant and always made welcome. Pleasant atmosphere and attentive waiter/bar staff. Food always excellent and plentiful. Would highly recommend.
I had heard a lot about this restaurant but as it was over 63 mile round trip wondered if it was worth a visit I was over the moon to find the trip wasn't wasted the food was excellent the staff were a pleasure to know and very helpful albeit a bit slow but in all fairness they where rushed of their feet the wait was well worth it can find no fault 63 mile trip or not got my vote will certainly be going again.
Arrived to a very quiet restaurant to a warm welcome on a cold evening, The menu was appealing and we had no problem in ordering starters and mains - which included a huge, sizzling, chicken tikka shashlik which was as tasty as it looked! The restaurant got busier as the evening wore on and the service and food could not be faulted - overall a very pleasant meal.
Like many restaurants these days there are no tablecloths, and no wall coverings. The result of this is that even though the restaurant was not busy it was very noisy and the situation was not helped by overly loud Asian muzak. The tables were somewhat undersized, again a common problem in restaurants. And, lastly, the place was quite cold. There is a fireplace, which looked as if it has never been used, and the radiators were on - a bit. However, the food was good and the staff were efficient and attentive. We probably will eat there again, but not in the winter!
Delish and flavourful dishes as always. Love that the food is free from artificial colour, low salt and msg free. The staff are friendly, service good, and decor lovely. The best Indian food restaurant in the South!
Lovely food, excellent and friendly service. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely go there again in the future. The menu had an excellent selection of dishes to suit all tastes
The Basmati is a fantastic Indian restaurant. The staff are all very friendly and the service is immaculate. The food is outstanding, the best Indian restaurant locally. I would thoroughly recommend.
