Our son had a special dining treat in mind for us when we visited the family in Omaha. He knew that we couldn’t find cuisine equal to this restaurant where we live in East Tennessee… El Basha Grill is a Mediterranean restaurant that's attached to one end of a small strip shopping center. Outdoor dining is an option…but we prefer... More

Buried in a strip mall, you wouldn't think to stop here but we tried it based on a friend recommendation and they were absolutely right. Great fresh mediterranean food. I love the lentil soup, fantastic spice to it. My husband orders the gyros and raves about them. It is very busy at lunch and often difficult to find a seat... More

This was our first visit to El Basha and I can guarantee you it won't be our last. Anyhow, you enter the smallish restaurant where the items are on display above the register. You order at the counter and the cashier hands you a number. once you're food is ready a waiter brings your food to your table. We came... More

This was my first visit, and I was not disappointed. Having 2 complete meals for $21 was surprising, especially when you factor in the quality and amount of food. Staff was friendly and responsive. I will be back again!

This is the second time I've visited this restaurant, I've noticed significant improvements since my last visit back in early 2015. I ordered both the falafel wrap combo and shawarma wrap. The food was good but not as good as the more authentic Chicago middle eastern food ... They have done ways to go but all in all, when in... More

The food and extent of the menu is tremendous. The size of the place is pretty small. There are several large businesses in the area, so if you're planning on lunch, it may take a while to get a table. Take that into consideration if you're strapped for time or come before 11:30 or after 1:00. Not sure about the... More

We had not been here in awhile, but recently returned in connection with a Saturday shopping trip. It was as good as we remembered. The decor is not fancy. It is simple and reflects the owners' roots, although I don't care for the large mirrors on one wall. But that is a nit. The food is what you come here... More

The food is hands down the best i have had in my recent and somewhat short endearment for Mediterranean cuisine. And if the food was the only criteria then I would have happily given them a 4+. But the place clearly lacks good service. When I enter a restaurant I am accustomed to be received and placing order with the... More

This is one eatery is a hidden gem in the eastern Omaha area. It is small and at times crowded but worth the wait You order at the counter, but they bring the food to the table. It's family friendly but noisy. The menu is sufficient to satisfy everyone from the vegetarian to meat eaters. both of decided to begin... More
