It's a good restaurant to visit, unfortunately a little far from the peninsular but still worth a visit. For me as I have a lot to do in the city during lunch hours, I eat here quite often. Food is very good and clean. It's also fast and everyone is friendly. Parking is outside on the road and usually there... More

Visited their eatery at the Sea Cliff Village. Sat on the terrace and the music was too loud. Requested our waiter to tone down the volume....she rectified the same...but after a few minutes, it was blaring again,which marrred our dining experience. Starter...potatoes...were nice but overspiced. Menu courses....fish in the lebanese sauce was served cold....taste was very average....the chicken kebabs served... More

During my stay in Dar I visited four restaurants in the city centre. In my opinion Albasha was the best of them. Cozy, good service and also the food was good. I especially liked the meat shawarma.

I went there for dinner with a colleague. We both had a starter and a main dish. My falafel (as starter) were very dry and not seasoned at all... so it was a little of a disappointment. For main, I took a BBQ plate with 3 skewers (chicken, lamb and beef). It was very good. Service was ok. Please note... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch. Overall the food was decent at best. Nothing that compares to quality Lebanese in other locations. We had the mezze and the chicken shawarma, both were not great.

The food was really dissapointing: there was no real Lebanese taste... I could not imagine myself back in Beyrouth. The personnel was absolutely not taking care, and there is not a drop of alcohol to drink... not even a Lebanese wine from the Bekaa Valley. I would not recomand

As a main course we ordered a mixed grill which is selection of skewered meat and chicken, as well as a plate of chopped garlic potatoes. the skewers arrived and were rather over cooked and the waiter forgot about...

We were introduced to this restaurant by a friend that we met at the hotel. The food....shawarma kebabs and humus were exceptional. No liquor but amazing fresh juices. Friendly service.

Ate at this restaurant after a long bus from Iringa, dropped stuff at our hotel and got a taxi straight over looking forward to a nice meal to take the stress of the day away. Oh boy. I ordered the chicken schwarma and also falafel for starter. I did not taste any of it. The chicken must have been sitting... More
