My wife and I shared a mezza plate (hummus, baba chanuje, falafel, taboule and pita bread) and a mixed grill plate ( beef shawarma, chicken shish tawook, grilled kafta, grilled vegetables, rice and 3 sauces). We both absolutely loved the mixed grill plate. Everything on...More

El Basha has a worn look-the chairs are full of tears in the upholstery, the carpet is old and dirty, and overall, the place could use some TLC. The atmospheric deal breaker for me was when I asked the cashier if I could have a...More

Food is good and you can really tell they are trying hard at being great. Dishes are fresh and made from scratch. Lots of people eating there even on what would normally be a down time of the day. Check it out.

Daughter suggested for lunch when we were out shopping. Excellent choice. Sat outside on their small patio in the warm sun. Got the gryo with fries...more than enough for one. All enjoyed their choices.

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!
