The food is simply delicious, we had 3 different meals and they were all excellent.
The Ful Medames appetizer was very tasty.
Our waitress was very professional and right on top of everything!

El Basha has been around a long time, and I'm happy to report that it is still the best place in central MA for great Middle Eastern food! If you love fresh hummus, stuffed grape leaves, kibbeh and kabobs, then this is the place to be. Flavorful, perfectly cooked meat and fish. Good wine list which includes several selections from Lebanon. The only weak spot was after dinner tea/coffee. My friend would have preferred a decaf/herbal option which was not available. My espresso was weak, and was served like an afterthought...the server brought it without a saucer or spoon and did not provide sugar or lemon. She left quickly, so I couldn't ask before the cup got cold. I would suggest that herbal (at least chamomile) tea be offered, and that if you are going to serve espresso, it should be served properly or not be offered at all.

Beef stroganoff was not the one, waiter was not able to explained menu, music was not relaxing or Mediterranean, it was rough and loud. My son left hungry, he was not able to eat beef stroganoff consisted of 70 present of cheep mushrooms, no sauce. It was strange item, we know what is beef stroganoff too bad that your cook does not
