Enjoyed a Friday evening here with a couple of friends. Although the menu has a lot of variety that some reviews have obviously not enjoyed, we stuck to a basic range of Lebanese starters which were tasty and filled us, washed down with cold beers - do ask for cold ones and test the temperature before opening - the colder...

I've been here twice now. It's very conveniently located a few minutes away from the Transcorp Hilton. Really delicious Lebanese food. Fantastic Falafel, Hummous etc. Loads of great stuff for vegetarians. They're great dealing with large groups, friendly accommodating staff. I'll definitely go back next time I have a free evening in Abuja.

Its tradition when you are in Abuja for job or with friends land in Al Basha. Nothing new, the usual good libanese meal and the usual high price.

A must eat meat for me when in abuja. Consistently great on quality and service. Surprising new menu additions every now and then. Love the selection from the grill and their pizza is a favourite. Good value.

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.
