“Poor hygiene”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

We have been using Basmati ever since they opened, mainly for takeaways. Generally, the food has been of a good standard and we always recommended them to others. Since they have been rated 1 star for hygiene by Derby City Council, we have seen no comments from the restaurants management acknowledging this and stating how they will resolve this. Until they do, we will be staying well clear!

“Poor hygiene”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

I was a little surprised on comments here after seeing that Derby City Council's food hygiene inspection apparently gave it a 1 out of 5 hygiene rating. This seems to indicate appalling hygiene standards under the new management . Comments from management on this would be useful.
