“Good food but overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

I have been to Al Basha a few times for dinner both with large groups and as a couple. Let's say I don't go back there just for the food although the quality is good. This is mostly because of the price which is much overvalued, but then it's unfortunately rather common in Abuja. The atmosphere is nice on the terrace area. Service is usually slow and sometimes frustratingly snail-paced.

“My favourite restaurant...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

my favourite place in Abuja. I love the food, especially the hommos special, fatoush and Albasha special. Had variety of healthy dishes. Lovely environment, safe and good for private conversations. Had parties and my marriage anniversaries celebrated there. Yummy!

“Good food and almost value for money”

Abuja is very expensive, in fact Nigeria is very expensive. The pizzas here are great quality and nicely done.
