My husband's grandfather was Syrian and he has fond memories of his grandmother's cooking. El Basha is the closest he's found to his grandmother's dishes, which he loved. We enjoy the hummas, lentil soup, grape leaves, chicken shawarma and kibbeh. And, if you are into...More

Our family enjoys stopping her about once a month and enjoy the food immensely. Baba Ghanouj is my favorite followed by the kefta, chicken shwarma and salad. If you want a good gyro, look no further. We enjoy the authentic middle eastern food!

When I lived in the area I went to El Basha's nearly every week. Great price, everything tastes good, and the service is awesome. During the summer the patio looks amazing. It is family owned and a great place for the experience.

Order at the counter, grab a seat and they serve you. Ate with the family and had hummus, lentil soup, beef and chicken shawarma, kefta, beef shish kebab and falafel. The lentil soup had rice and was thick and tasty. The skewered meats were fabulous...More

My wife is half Lebanese, so I have been exposed to a lot of good middle eastern food. This place has it. A comfortable setting, but nothing fancy. The folks are friendly, and the food is outstanding. Top quality ingredients (the greens and veggies are...More
