Basmati has an incredible lunch buffet with fresh hot naan bread, soup, salad, rice and at least 3-4 entree selections plus dessert. It is delicious every time. The tables are set with crisp white tablecloths, with friendly, attentive staff there to greet and welcome you. It has a warm and inviting atmosphere.

We were greeted immediately and the servers were attentive the entire time we were there. The buffet had a large selection of items and was very reasonably priced and included salad, fresh fruit, tea, and dessert in addition to the main dishes.

We went there on a date night and it was great. The food was excellent and we had very good service throughout the night. We both had meat samosas for appetizers and chicken tikka masala with garlic naan and some wine. The price was reasonable; not cheap but not overly expensive. One thing of note was that it was Saturday... More

Enjoyed a great buffet. The food was hot and fresh. They always have something on the buffet that is new to me. As a vegetarian I find their selection of vegetables and the way they're prepared satisfies even a meat eater. Always has nice salads from lettuce to cucumber and peppers and many condiments to add different flavors to your... More

If you like Indian food, you'll enjoy this restaurant. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and attentitive. After a USNA football victory, it was a fine way to end the day.

I decided to try Basmati during a recent trip to Annapolis. Although I was in Blue Crab-land, I was craving Indian. I am glad to report that Basmati did not disappoint. I eat Indian good often and although the Yelp reviews were good, was still a little nervous, especially it was my birthday and I really just wanted the comfort... More

We ordered delivery for 5 people. The food was hot and delicious, including more than ample servings of rice. We very much enjoyed the naan. The only problem was that we used their online ordering system and it took two hours to receive the food. I don't know if that was an online problem, or if the restaurant itself is... More
