I ordered here for delivery tonight. Got two orders of Naan, two of popadoms, a butter chicken and a chicken masala. Total price $38. So let me just say that I love Indian food and have ordered it in Ottawa many times. What I received...More

After moving to Ottawa, I tried 7 or 8 Indian places, since I'm an Indian food maniac. I just love the stuff but was having trouble finding a place where they really had nice recipes with real taste and cooked to perfection. Well, this is...More

Great tasting stuff, very decent prices, friendly staff, pretty quick service. A good-sized menu. Naan is a bit pricey, but everything else is very well priced. Very good quality! Date attended is approximate.

Dinner for two. Dahl is excellent. Butter chicken is fair but not totally authentic flavour. Very good eggplant and mushroom dish. Fast food-type decor but you're not buying the place but their food. Meets fair expectation.

"""Amazing authentic Indian food. In the summer, Have been here many times, and have never been disappointed. If you can't handle spicy do not order the Vindaloo...it is EXTREMELY spicy...but super delicious! My advice is The greatest biryani of my life i had"""

This IS NOT an Indian restaurant. Run by Bangladeshis, who do not even have the sense to search for Indian recipes over the internet, instead of using their brains and ruining the dishes in the process. Atrocious service on top of that. Please avoid visiting.

I have been to Basmati over the past 3 years and introduced some friends to the place. We started with the butter chicken plate and never looked back. As students, we found the prices affordable compared to the rest of Indian restos. As well, there...More

This is my favourite place to pick up a Tikka sandwich and for approx. 8 dollars, you get the most amazing meal wrapped in a freshly made naan bread! I ask for him to add chick peas and cilantro to it and it is perrrfect!!!...More
