I have been here severally over the years and while they have a wide range of options on the menu I have almost always stuck with the mezze. It is an authentic experience with the decor to boot. Al Basha boasts an indoor and outdoor restaurant to suit the diners preference. If you choose to dine outside be prepared for... More

Great food in a serene atmosphere of the garden. Beer was nice and cool too. A little oasis. A regular haunt when visiting Abuja. Thanks to the waiters too!

I am not a fan of dark restaurants as this one ranks as one. There is an outdoor section but too much shisha action going on. Food is quite nice but for the prices, no.

I visited expecting better than what I experienced. Had a mix of starters, many of which were beige over-fried & unappetizing. The main course was worse, I order mince meat kebabs, which were undercooked, I left them as I was concerned they would make me ill. They were just about warm & still tacky, not cooked through. The rice was... More

Quite a choice of food, excellent place to go with a group in order to pick up many different dishes to be shared. Nicely set-up outside dining garden and a pleasant and large restaurant Inside.

The restaurant is more like a hookah joint. I think most of them order hookahs to smoke the mosquitoes away in the open restaurant. Service was lazy and food was pricey. Had better Lebanese food in Abuja.

My last visit was 9 months ago and not much has changed apart from the fact that prices are higher now due to the economic situation in Nigeria. The food is good and the environment is very nice. However, they STILL only accept cash payments. I spoke with the manager and his excuse was not a good one. So please... More

Nice ambiance. You can choose between indoors and the patio outside. Large menu. You will find something for everyone. I loved the mezze ! Enough choice for a full meal.

We love this restsurant and became addicted to their great food whenever in Abuja Nigeria. Really a surprising reaction to everyone we took with us to this restaurant for the first time. Be patient when ordering the food, it takes a bit longer than normal but definetly worth the wait once you experience the great taste.
