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.

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.

Good prompt service food very good and freshly cooked and most importantly hot. Surroundings clean and tidy also very spacious not sitting in each other's laps. Only criticism was that the portions were a bit on the small size for the price.

Service and food was very good, although my husband didn't think there was much chicken in his biriani but the flavour was very nice. Would go back to give it another go but may choose a more meatier dish.

Excellent value Sunday evening meal, friendly service and nice ambience. Would recommend highly! Athanu chicken from the main course menu was particularly good and they also do a fine lamb tikka starter.

Basmati was a lovely restaurant with friendly and helpful service. The food was delicious and really tasty without being too hot for the sake of being hot. A really great evening.

Unfortnately I got my main course before my accompaniment as the waiter didnt listen when I said a 'well done, Peshwari Naan and the server then argued with me about it. He also failed to ring a taxi for us when we asked him to, will not return to this place nor reccommend

The food was poor quality and not representative as shown on the website. It was a disappointment. We have eaten in many Indian restaurants and I also cook the good regularly therefore we know what to expect from a good venue.

Overpriced for the quality of food. They got my wife's main course order wrong which was a real shame. The lamb sheek for starter was very dry. The mint ice cream desert was a bowl of cold syrup.

Not an authentic Indian restaurant. No depth to the curry, no quality to the construction. Nice environment, good service and prices OK. Wouldn't go back.
