No room inside, so grabbed a table on the patio. We waited 15 minute for service. In the meantime, we fought with an umbrella, trying to get shade. It was broken and almost took us out. We moved to another table, but the umbrella was no better. Darned hot and sunny. Finally got service. Hummus was delicious, fatoush salad great.... More

I won't even try to list the dishes for fear of mangling the spelling. Just go here if you have never had Lebanese food and want to try, or have and want more. Everything is wonderful. Be sure to ask for homemade hummas! NOTE: they do not serve alcoholic beverages, but you can bring your own beer and wine.

El-Basha is a great stop for middle eastern food. The dishes are authentic and tasty. Try the appetizers: homemade hummus, feta and olives, etc. All great. Falafel is a great meal choice. The prices are good and the staff is friendly. The place is unassuming, but I always enjoy my visits there. It's BYOB, so bring something with you and... More

We ate at El-Basha with a group of 8 people for a team business dinner. We chose to get the Azeeme family style Lebanese dinner. As soon as we ordered, the food started coming out - Hummous, Pita, Stuffed Grape leaves, salad... It was all really good. The main entree consisted of lamb, beef, chicken, vegetables, and rice. This was... More

The lunch we had was outstanding. I ordered the lamb "lollipop" chops; they were exquisite! Tender, nicely seasoned, and cooked to perfection. It was close to capacity, but we got our lunch promptly. Others in our group ordered things like salmon, shrimp, salads, etc. We shared an appetizer of Lebanese sausages that were good, although the sauce they came in... More

Visited this restaurant for a dinner in March 2016. Had to wait a solid 15 minutes and had to call a waiter to attend my table. It wasn't intentional that the 2 waiters didn't come to my table but they were busy with other tables with group of people. It would have been good if they atleast served me some... More

The food was a little high for lunch but it was good. The server was not very friendly but we were able to get by that. I might go back again.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Great Greek salad with a hint of mint in the dressing. Grape leaves and Tabouleh are really excellent. Also recommend Kofta Mishwee, Chicken Port Sayud and Kibbe. Family run, most of wait staff children of owner on the night we were there. Very friendly folks. Also on the menu are your typical Kabob dishes, Beef... More

Dined here with a friend for her birthday last week. Both the food and the service were just amazing. I had one of my favorites, Beef Shawarma on greens, and the mix of spices and flavors were superb. My friend ordered the falafel plate and said it too was delicious. We both splurged some calories on the baklava for dessert,... More

We had a very tasty lunch here with Tabboleh, stuffed grape leaves and Kofta Mishwee, with an absolutely decdent Baklava for dessert. Service was a little slow by an indifferent waitress, but that won't keep me for returning. It's a little difficult to get to, through the twisty interchange with standard unmarked MA directions, but well worth the effort.
