Delicious Greek Fare

Located in a strip mall, this busy restaurant offered a choice of many Greek dishes. Our order was prepared tastefully and was delicious. Service was prompt and prices were moderate. If you're in the mood for Greek fare, this is the place to visit.

Excellent middle eastern food. Had the veal chop. Charred to perfection. Hummus was excellent. Grape leaves also top notch.

Very modest decor. Friendly and efficient service. The items on the menu are very fresh and good sized portions. One of the few Middle Eastern spots in the area. Amazingly inexpensive. We like the salads and the falafel. Good for a change of pace. Easy parking.

The food at El Basha Westborough is decent for traditional middle eastern fare. The portions are on the skimpy side for the prices charged. Eli, the owner, is not genuine; he seems to be going through the motions to be friendly with customers, but overall he's only interested in making money. When there is a problem with an order, he...

Great sampling of foods. A little pricey, not too spicy. Not a quick lunch spot. Take your time and enjoy.

There aren't a lot of options for Middle Eastern food in the western suburbs. This one, principally Lebanese, turned out some respectable dishes at reasonable prices. Hummus was excellent and the falafel were above average, but the grape leaves were mediocre at best. Still you can get a decent meal at a reasonable price. Note El-Basha has no liquor license,...

El-Basha is the best Middle Eastern Restaurant in Central Massachusetts, from the Appetizers, to the Salads to the Entrees everything exceeded expectations. I would strongly recommend the Baked Kibbee some of the best I've ever had.

el Basha is a very good middle eastern restaurant. the food was very good, kibbe, humus, Kafta Mishwee etc. The wait for a table was long considering we had a reservation. Unless you site in the corner booth by the window the place is very noisy and the level of din can be distracting. The service was good but they... More

Quite a busy place on a Friday night. Liked their special stuffed cabbage ( for appetizer) and both the chicken Kebab and the beef kefta ( main course). Both are served with rice and grilled vegetables. The yoghurt and cucumber salad we great too. Appetizers were served swiftly but the main course took sometime. I would love to try the... More
