I liked interior, location, approach, I really expected to see this place as one of the best restaurants in Abuja, but in fact I am very upset with this place. My colleague and me were sick after having lunch there. We got terrible diarea for 3 days, I was feeling horrible myself, especially taking into consideration the fact that I... More

I had dinner there with my team from work last month and I must say, Al Basha has the perfect combination of ambience, food quality and quantity, as well as pricing. In all of my Lebanese dining in Nigeria, Al Basha tops them all. Only thing that bothered my team and I was the fact that after spending almost $600,... More

Al Basha is perfect. Great dishes and flavours. I always eat too much. But why the smoke alarm still beeps every 60 seconds - after more than 2 years without a break - is one of life's many mysteries.

It really is a lovely restaurant, the ambience is really nice and the interior has an arabian feel to it. Their food is mostly Lebanese and Continental and if you have any complaints they listen and take the necessary steps to correct it. The staff are also courteous and friendly. They have a nice lounge area and serve shisha and... More

I went there on my own during a business trip; it was a nice experience. This place has nice outdoor seating and a large variety of food choices. The service is speedy and friendly. Even though pricing seems to be on the high side, you also get high-quality food.

I like this place alot, lebanese food is a big thing in Abuja. The food is good, potions generous and great nightlife atmosphere. The prices have gone up quite a bit, but still a good spot for an evening out with friends or work colleuges.

Beautiful restaurant in a nice location with great outdoor setting and water fountains. Thanks to Garo this place has excellent service and delicious food. I visited Al Basha for dinner for four nights last week and everything I tasted was so good. Try chicken cream soup, Caesar's salad and roasted lamb leg. I will visit it again and again every...
