Lovely new place, friendly help. The app sampler was tasty but not a lot for $8. Food was tasty but way over priced. $8 for 1 lamb kabob would be ok but it was 2 big pieces of green pepper and 3 very small-about 1/2 inch- cubes of lamb in a cold dry crumbly very thin pita on a paper plate and nothing else. I had a diced chicken platter with a spoonful of seasoned dice chicken,a spoonful of seasoned rice and a few fries and a stale cold pita. Had to eat with a fork because the pita was too crumbly to pick up. All the food is made up ahead on a steam table by the register and you order, pay and they dish it up for you on paper plates and you carry it to the table. Those dry pitas are all that are on the children's menu with toppings like Nuttella or PB&J.
This could be a great place, but they have cut every corner they could in portion size and food prep. We won't be back.

Dear John K, We at Basha's make every effort to prepare food from scratch and serve it fresh to our customers everyday. With every new business, there are always things that don't go well or as planned in the first few weeks. Therefore, we take every customer feedback seriously and professionally. We have changed our portion size, ie.. we serve 2 skewers of beef/lamb per pita sand, and 3 skewers of beef/lamb per trio platter. Our pita sand is now 9" vs. 8", and our platters are bigger to hold more food. Our Pita bread is now delivered on a biweekly basis where before it was monthly. We at Basha's don't like to disappoint any customer that walks in our door, and never take short cuts. We're here to serve you quality Lebanese food and hope you enjoy your next experience.
