It’s easy to be curious in London. A different turn from the usual route will reveal a whole new side of this great city, and more often than not, an undiscovered spot for food that makes our curious deviation worthwhile. Al Basha is that kind of place. Nestled in Knightsbridge right by Hyde Park, its traditional yet visionary Middle Eastern dishes made and served with genuine warmth and affection are a promise to hungry patrons: you will leave Al Basha with a full stomach and a full heart.
Al Basha’s menu reflects the diversity in Middle Eastern cuisines. Hot and cold mezze make an unmissable treat for a peckish rainy afternoon: Houmous, Kibbe, Moutabbal with freshly baked pita bread. Indulge in the homely comfort of the traditional Egyptian Molokhya and its verdant richness, redolent of garlic and coriander. The popular and heroically wondrous Arabian-Gulf Magbous is a combination of robust spices and layered textures that will not fail to impress the most finicky eaters. And be prepared for the splendid explosion of flavours that comes in Halawet El-Jiben morsels: sweet cheese, clotted cream, pistachio and rose petal jam.
Passing the marble columns along Knightsbridge, one would not fully comprehend the genial and authentic ambience within unless they stepped into Al Basha for themselves. So take that turn, book a table with DiscoEat, and discover the gastronomical experience with 10-50% off the food bill.
