We were really looking forward to Lebanese food but were disappointed. It was all quite bland and with your eyes closed you wouldn't know the difference between the hummus and babaganoush.

My friends and I went to Albasha for dinner. After a long day we were looking forward to lebanese food. In terms of the food quality and quantity, this place is very good. Lots of choices for drinks, meats and sandwiches. I wholeheartedly enjoyed my meal (Chicken skewers with rice, veggies, and pita). The atmosphere is good as well and... More

We had a shared platter with all kinds of lebanese food, and this can definitely compare to what ive had in the middle east!

I chose to eat at this restaurant because I live Lebanese food. The place is clean and very simple. The menu includes most of the Lebanese starters, main dishes but poor on sweets. The food was authentic and tasty and the prices are very reasonable. It was a pleasant experience.

We went to the old premises on Indira Gandhi Street and couldn't find it. Asked the locals and they kept pointing directions until we found the new swanky premises on Bridge Street near Samora Avenue. The place is modern and clean, the vegetarian burgers the best i've ever tasted (because of this we went here often). The owner seemed friendly.... More

Went here once during our stay in Dar and really enjoyed it. Quick friendly service and tasty food. We all got different wraps (shish tarouk and shawarma were two of them if I remember correctly) and all were delicious. We also got a portion of falafel which was lovely. It was my first time having Lebanese so I have nothing... More

Not much to say but just good food, fast attentive service. Decent prices. Tend to stick to shawarma which is done well. Some good side sauces to choose from.
