The Al Basha Restaurant serves authentic Lebanese cuisine in The Gambia and is located in the very heart of the Senegambia Strip and opposite some lively nightclubs and other diners along the tourist promenade. There is seating in the street front veranda area or inside for more intimacy.

At Al Basha you will be warmly welcomed and treated like a VIP as you are guided to your table. The waiter service is very professional and before you can say "waiter" your menu is on your table. But before you order do take a while to admire the scenic pictures of Lebanon on the restaurant walls or the swords hanging between.

When you're ready to make your choice you are really spoilt for choice from their 3 course menu, but first try their selection of hot or cold Meze (starters) such as the  specially prepared olives, savoury sambousek, falafel, Tabouleh (parsley salad), Warak Inab (stuffed vine leaves), Arayes Alwaha (minced lamb with onions) fresh salads, and of course hummus (mashed chickpeas). This can all be washed down with various fruit juices or from their selection of fine red and white wines from around the world.

After eating your starter you can now settle down for your main course. Try from the entrees of delicately marinated and grilled meats, poultry and seafood. Try their charcoal grilled chicken called Shish Taouk, tender lamb cubes on skewers called Lahem Meshwi or the spicy Lebanese Tahini Fish or succulent prawns.

And to finish off your meal you can try any one of their popular sweets such as the pastry called baklawa or the Bouza Bi Haleeb which is milk ice cream sprinkled with chopped pistachio nuts. If you simply don't have any more space for dessert then try their freshly ground made coffee.

So if you like international or genuine Lebanese cuisine then Al Basha is well worth visiting whether its for a group night out while on holiday in Gambia, exclusive dinner parties, a special celebration or a quite meal for two in the weekends.

Oh, and don't forget, Friday night is their buffet so it's ideal for couples and families.

Al Basha is on the Senegambia Strip just 80 metres from the Kairaba Hotel and next door to the Gamtel office.
