The outside of this building is questionable but the food and service is a stark contrast to this. Definitely make sure you order the Lebanese iced tea as well the fried cheese. OMG!!!! Everything we have tried has been great but I will say that there are better gyros in town. Enjoy!!!

we walked in about 8:30 pm, they close at 9 pm however, the wait staff was very friendly and did not act put out that we walked in so close to closing time. The food was all fresh and came out quickly. A bonus is that Saturday nights the restaurant boasts belly dancers as entertainment for the guests.

I have eaten here maybe 20 times now, about 8 times at the new location. Albasha continues to offer great value and a nice atmosphere. My wife and I have eaten all the standards and all were consistently good. Portions are large and you never leave hungry. They re-started their 5.99 lunch specials on 4 standard plate. Same food as dinner but at a much reduced price. Place and bathrooms have been spotless. Now with a full bar at night. Great value and run by nice people!!

We usually go to the Albasha's in Baton Rouge, but we stumbled on a restaurant.com coupon for this one and decided to check it out (since we were going to stay in Shreveport area).

At first glance, the outside of the restaurant does not look that nice. There's still some paint from the old restaurant's name on the outside wall, and the parking lot had garbage around it. However, once you step inside it is nice and welcoming! It looks newly renovated inside as well.

The atmosphere is not the same as any other Albasha's we've been to; it has more of a cool, night-hangout vibe. Other Albasha's emphasize traditional Greek murals and music. It is not bad by any means, it just stands out from other Albasha's we've been to previously.

We ordered the Lebonese tea, Albasha's Platter (came with kibbi and grape leaves), Chicken shawarma and gyro platter, baklava, and tiramisu! It also came with fresh pita bread! We had a lot of leftovers because it is served in big portions. The food was wonderful!

The waitress we had was friendly and very accommodating. We chose a more private area of the restaurant so we could eat alone, and she checked on us often (and not the "annoying often" either).

Ladies - the restroom is completely zebra striped with modern art! Very nice!
