Have not been here on a while, but overall good skewers and food. Homous was a bit lacking in flavour but new location with play area is a hit for families with young children!

I love Lebanese food mainly for the variety of mezze. In that sense Albasha is somewhat dissapointing but if you are ok with 4-5 simple and fresh things on your plate, you will be fine. It si good for a change. Warning: they are not...More

Visited Albasha restaurant at their new location ... Opposite UBL Bank, same place where previously it used to be Dolson Curtains shop. The place was very clean and food was yummy, their services were excellent.

We ordered shawarma here for lunch. These tasted just fine. Prices in this restaurant appeared to be a little on the higher side and it took some time before food was served. Munir D.

This place is awesome! The hummus is delicious! Everything is fresh and the portion sizes are large. The beef shish kabob (my favorite) is very tender!!! Chicken shawarma is always a good choice too! You will enjoy the food here!!!

I frequent Al Basha and it seems they have some new additions to the menu. I tried their amazing double decker burger! A tower of a burger with a creative twist. Possibly a top 2 contender in Nigeria and a new favorite for me.
