Gourmet Middle Eastern cuisine is the order of the day at Al Basha, a Knightsbridge restaurant known for its superbly delicious specialities, stunning atmosphere and some of the friendliest service in all of London. Led by a team of chefs from all over the Middle East, the restaurant fuses together an array of flavours from several countries in order to provide a full sensory dining experience. The chicken and lamb shawarma are specialities here at this London restaurant, but there are also many vegetarian options such as hoummus, stuffed vine leaves, vegetarian moussaka and several others. Feel like going Egyptian? Be sure to try Al Basha’s amazing koshary maasry made with rice, lentils, macaroni, a spicy tomato sauce and fried onions. Broaden your horizons by dining at this incredible Knightsbridge establishment, but be sure to book ahead of time to snag a table!
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
The meal was delicious, I was very impressed with the food. The service and the atmosphere were equally good. I would highly recommend this restaurant to all.
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.
Nice relaxing restaurant with good choice of food, drinks menu could be improved, the service was good and efficient, reasonably priced restaurant for the area
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.
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
My only disappointment was the small menu you had to choose from using a groupon voucher. Apart from the lack of choice for a main...the food I did choose was ok and the service was good.
Staff were quite friendly, not overly welcoming or didn't tell you what the dishes were. Food average, didn't know what I was eating at some points which was slightly unnerving. But most of it was fine. A lot of food and nice wine for the money.
Great place! We liked it very much! the stuff was fantastic and meal extreamly delicous! the location is easy to find as well. go and get it!
Loud but enjoyable music, good food, nice atmosphere. Would have liked to have olives, kofta, tabouleh as part of the six-course meal but still liked it.
