Very Good but very Noisy

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... read 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

This is an authentic Lebanese spot. The kibbe, and falafel are delicious and the Lebanese sausage is great. BYOB makes I easy on wallet as well.

I'm not much of a judge for middle Eastern food, but I've enjoyed it the few times I've eaten here. And others I've been with say it's pretty good as well.

Simple storefront atmosphere... not much more than tables and chairs, but the many windows make it fine. Our friendly waiter (young man) was a pleasure and explained a number of dishes and made some good recommendations. The portions are very large and everything is super fresh, esp. the salads. We enjoyed the Falafel, Fatouch and Chicken Port Saiid. All very... More

Went to dinner here with colleagues and was looking forward to it because of being moved out of area for the last three years. The food is still good but doesn't seem as on point.Hummus was not as tasty and the lamb was just ok.

El Basha is a great place to stop for lunch - personal or business - as it is located in a strip mall very close to the Westborough Corporate Park. The hummus was delicious as were all of the meals our table got. The salads are awesome and very plentiful. Service was attentive and quick enough if you are visiting... More

Excellent food and experience! The waitstaff is welcoming and dedicated to your enjoyment. I had the Kibbe and Stuffed Grape Leaves which were excellent. The greek salad arrived in a generous serving with just the right amount of dressing and feta. Plan ahead to byob as they do not serve alcohol, but allow you to brown bag from the store... More

We've eaten there with several parties of 10 - 12 people. This moderately sized restaurant (probably holds 50 at a seating) is great for such a crowd. The wait staff are extremely pleasant (family, I suspect). Food is consistently good to excellent. Very large portions, and imminently shareable. In fact, if there are 2 of you, just order the appetizer... More
