About Basmati - Petworth

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.

Excellent food and charmingly served. We were on holiday in the area but, if we lived closer, we would go there all the time. Well pleased.
