It was expensive a bit, but thinking the location (knightsbridge) it makes sense. food was great, service was awesome. they offered us free desserts. i really liked the place, though it should have more Egyptian decorations.

My second visit to Al Basha in a couple of months! Perfect location 5 m ins walk from Knightsbridge tube station. Friendly team, relaxing surroundings and of course DELICIOUS FOOD! The chicken and lamb were both succulent and the portions were large. The humous is the best Iv'e ever had and I have made it myself for 20 years! We love the chilli roast potatoes and asked for second bowl of these. Delicious Merlot......... We had the ten course taster menu for a second time, plenty of assortment and more than enough for two of us both who have good appetites. We will most certainly be back again. This last visit was Saturday lunchtime and the previous had been a Thursday evening. Highly recommend you pay Al B asha a visit! David Brown

Even though for some reason at first they didn't seem to have our reservation through Quandoo, they were happy to accomodate our booking of a table for 7 people. The service was prompt although you had to signal for them, and the food was overall very nice - although I was expecting slightly bigger portions. They were very generous with the bread and the tea though, and the atmosphere on a Wednesday night was very quiet and relaxed, perfect for what we wanted. Very happy, I would come back again.

We went to Al Basha using a taster menu Groupon voucher. We were made to feel very welcome by the staff from the moment we walked through the door. Excellent customer service. The food was tasty and we will be going back.

Al Basha is a lovely place with a friendly atmosphere, nice ambience, great food and good customer service. We bought a Groupon and it definitely was a satisfactory value for money.

The restaurant decor was old, tacky and unkept. There was a pile of dirty plastic tubs presumably used to bus the tables on the bar counter. The welcome was just : "are you Groupon or (another company)?" with no indication of what the menu was going to be. They served a soup and a dish of humus that were very good, the rest of the food was dry and very unremarkable. There was a big disconnect between the location (Knightsbridge) and the standard of the restaurant. Even for a discounted meal you would expect a nice welcome and clean surroundings

The food was good but the service was rushed. The boys serving took the plates away almost before we had finished even though the restaurant was almost empty. We had to ask for more bread and more water. The manager was very nice but overall it was not as good as our previous visit.
