Regardless of their faith, many say
our cuisine is a heavenly revelation.
Still others appreciate that all our
beef, chicken, and lamb is kosher.

Our family is very proud of Albasha's quality Mediterranean cuisine and warm, welcoming atmosphere, and we appreciate all of the five-star Google reviews we have received. We'd love to add yours to our site. Click here to leave your review.

Genuinely good quality food, reasonable pricing and portions. I feel they lean closer to authentic Lebanese when it comes to the cooking, definitely more so than most Mediterranean restaurants that claim Lebanese, Greek/Lebanese, Mediterranean, so this was a long searched for and treasure to find for me. Made sure to get a lot of appetizers so I could try a wide variety of items, and I was pleased all across the board. The servers were considerate, and attentive. They even put up with my low-key pleas for kibbeh nayeh to be put on the menu. ;)
11/10 recommend.

They have the best sautéed Eggplant in the city in my opinion.  I usually order a lamb and beef kabob with Greek salad, hummus and rice. I live about twenty minutes away and it's always worth the trip to me. The service is great as well. I never have an empty drink and plenty of warm pita bread.

Love Albasha. The best Middle Eastern food in Metairie. Wait staff are fantastic, especially the guy who looks like Krum from Harry Potter.

WOW, my meal was great & plentiful. I went there with my girlfriends to have lunch. Reasonable prices and large portions. The wait staff was friendly and our meals were out of the kitchen very quickly. I will go back.

★★★★★

Danielle Ivey Local Guide 

Delicious food, great service, and large portions! Whenever I visit New Orleans, Albasha is on my list! The Chicken Shawarma is to die for. I’ve gotten it as a salad as well on a plate with sides. Though lunchtime is busy, the service is very fast. Customer for life.

★★★★★

Jeff Weber Local Guide 

They have some strange hours of operation but well worth it. I have had a lot of different items here but recently I found their Chicken Shawarma salad and their combo salad and they are both amazing.  I never thought I would go to a Greek restaurant specifically for a salad but I am addicted to the Shawarma and Gyro salads. They also have pretty good Hummus but their Mediterranean Hummus with all of the additions can't be beat! They also have takeout but I would suggest calling ahead or you will be waiting a bit.

★★★★★

Christopher Local Guide 

Lovely restaurant. Friendly and polite on arrival. Plenty to choose from and waiters helpful on items you’re unsure about. More than generous with portions too and you will definitely be going away with to go boxes. Relaxed atmosphere and immediately felt at ease despite almost every table full. Will be coming back one day for sure.

★★★★★

Jeff Linville Local Guide 

This place is the best value for some amazing food. I have gotten the chicken and gyro salad at least once a week for a month now and I will be back again next week. The salad is a pile of delicious chicken for around 11 bucks. Service is great and the staff is always friendly. Place is normally pretty busy around lunch time and always speedy getting the food out of you only have a second for lunch.

Travis Gould

The food is really, really good here! First we had the Albasha Super Salad, which contains different vegetables with Tabboule, grape leaves, olives, and feta cheese. It was good and very refreshing. I had the Kafta Kabob plate. The kabob had a deep flavor and it went well with everything. The hummus was very good. We ended with the Lebanese coffee, which I recommend is not for the meek. It is strong in its flavor and grainy as it is not filtered. I like this very much. The strong coffee and the heavily spiced drink is such a great thing in itself. I would go there just for it.

Catherine Russo

AMAZING. Just as good as the ones in BR but without all the travel! Sooo glad they opened one up in Metairie!! Don’t waste your time with other options. Albasha is the brand name, and all the others are just generic (yet still the same price for half the quality). Albasha=the best. Every. Single. Time!

★★★★★

Jeremy Balint

In my humble opinion, this is an incredible dinning experience - from the cordial greeting "Please take your seat anywhere" until digesting the last morsel of fried cheese and Gyros, this exquisite restaurant should exceed your expectations beyond reasonable doubt. Bring a friend. Bring a family member. Bring your neighbor's newborn. You haven't lived until you've sent your taste buds to the sweet paradise of Crete. Welcome to Albasha!

★★★★★

Arlene Beita Local Guide

Brittany Carnes Local Guide

I love this place and I frequent it as much as possible. My exposure to Greek food has been fairly limited, but the Gyro is the best I've ever had. I also really enjoy the Falafel and Hummus appetizers, as well as the Chicken Shawarma Sandwich. The staff is always friendly. I usually eat here in the evening on weekdays or at lunch during the weekend; it's not too busy during these times.
