Tonight I went with the family to the Basmati at Brabyns Brow (0161 427 7748). We each enjoyed our meals and I in particular enjoyed my Moghli Chicken Biryani which was served in a delightful manner on nice warm plates. All the usual side dishes were available. Linen tableware ultra modern seating and decor, together with atmospheric blue and pink lighting contributed to make this a most pleasant occasion.
I would certainly go again although I have to say I thought the drinks were a little "pricey" at £2.55 for a small bottled beer ( no draft at present but the manager assured me it will soon be on).
However be warned:
Make sure you have got your cheque book and card, the management do not yet have card facilities, fortunately for me I have a wealthy daughter who just happened to have some cash with her to meet the bill of £60 for four (including 4 beers and 2 wines)
Also when you go in ask for a table looking onto the car park because the radiators are under those windows, we moved tables as it was rather cold, away from the central heating. I am sure this will not be so apparent when the weather gets warmer.
My personal opinion is favourable, the owner was most attentive and was seen to ensure his staff gave customer satisfaction.
9 out of 10.
I deducted 1 mark for having no credit card facility
and insufficient heating.
