Great service. Lovely meal and friendly staff. Not very busy but probably due to the inability to take card payments. Cash only. Seen this before on door so not sure if card machine ever working or installed?
Ours was a last minute booking via the web site. Easy process to book, and the staff were very helpful and attentive. Excellent evening & great food !
First visit and will certainly be back, great food with a friendly welcoming service
Food was lovely, staff were great. Even though it was busy the food came out quickly and very tasty. Will be coming back again soon.
Great food and service but the restaurant can be very noisy so if you want quiet romantic meal this may not be the one. We had to move tables half way through our meal as the guy on the next table was set on telling the whole of Fareham is business and we just could not have a conversation but staff were very good and found us a table as far away as possible.
The service and quality of food was exceptional. Having lived in the area for 20 years and walking past Basmati 2 or 3 times a week, how have we never discovered this little gem earlier? We'll definitely be returning, and given that every table was full, we'll be using Quandoo to make sure we get a seat.
Friendly service at the right pace. Young waiter struggled understanding my friends accent but was good humoured, and happy to be corrected. Food was really tasty, accurate chilli/spice heat ratings on menu, and served at good temperature i.e.. was hot. Mains portion size fine for smaller appetites but larger/ hungrier guests may need a starter or extra sides . Dessert was a bit disappointing.
I've been going here for a few year's now, and I have to say, it continues to be fantastic. So good, that a friend and I would like to visit once a month. We enjoyed it that much. Thank you for your lovely food and great service.
Customer service and quality of food is spot on every single time I go. There was not enough keema in my naan and it was replaced immediately. The decor of the restaurant is also very appealing. Customer for life.
We had a lovely birthday meal yesterday, they went to the effort to put balloons out and confetti and the highchair was there waiting for us and the children were given lollies at the end, would highly recommend!
