At Swan House Cellars on Market Square, the Petworth Basmati branch – you’ll find the other two in Chichester and Locks Heath – is a local favourite for great curry and authentic Indian specialities. This excellent South Asian restaurant is committed to providing excellent service, superlative food and a comfortable environment, making it a huge hit with local residents and visitors alike. The restaurant's location in a cellar of a 13th century hotel makes it an especially unique location to dine, with a setting that’s unlike everywhere else in the area. The space is available for private hire, so consider Basmati the next time you want to throw a celebration to remember. Be sure to book ahead to beat the rush at this popular restaurant.
Lovely food and attentive staff. They help you decide what dish to have if you're not sure and they look after you well. What more could you ask for ? :)

Amazing food as always, hubbys favourite place to eat out.
First visit here and what a find. Lovely waft of spice greets you as you open the front door, miserable wet and cold evening outside and immediately begin to feel better as you go down the stairs. much larger menu than I had expected, not always a good sign, but some really different sounding dishes. I played safe with a Jalfrezi, and the other half had a chicken with tamarind. both absolutely delicious and the Tarka Dall was just superb. Starters were probably unnecessary as portions are generous. Good service, pleasant ambience and atmosphere, tables not too tightly packed, just an excellent evening. definitely coming back.
There is no other Indian like this one. The food is as uncoloured and natural as possible. The flavours amazing. Instead of sticking to 2 types of food I am working my way through the menu. We just love this place and the staff are excellent. It is a bit of a hidden gem.
Our first visit to the Basmati, chosen as a convenient stop-over location for exchanging Christmas presents with family who could not be with us on the day. Great food and excellent friendly service in an interesting setting. Would definitely recommend
Good food and interesting location, combined with attentive service. The vegetable biriani, chicken dhansak and butter chicken, which our party ordered, were nicely cooked and flavoursome. Our only gripe was that there was a problem with the drinks fridge so no chilled bottles of beer were available.
We were early, so the restaurant was very quiet. We were served quickly and efficiently. The food was delicious and well-presented.. It was a cold night, so perhaps the restaurant could have been a little warmer to welcome diners.
Lovely experience. Had to book using a keypad from phone so couldn't get the actual time we wanted to be there. But great when we got there :)! Greeted well, delicious food, attentive service. Definitely go there again.
