The Pasha Restaurant is a Lebanese restaurant in Abuja.
Walking into The Pasha Restaurant feels like walking into a small village in the Middle East. From the traditional music playing -which you can hear from the gate, calm and not noisy. To the beautiful display of plant pots hanging beautifully on the wall as you walk in, down to the little altar at the right side of the door. I think I loved the touch of the altar, as it gave the restaurant a traditional feel -I’m guessing that was the plan they intended.
The menu offers a variety of Lebanese, Mediterranean, and intercontinental. Everything on the menu looked/sounded fun to me, but I wasn’t in an exploring mood so I stuck to the boneless chicken barbecue, mozzarella sticks, and a glass of orange juice.

Boneless Chicken Barbecue
The boneless chicken barbecue was half boneless chicken, charcoal-grilled, and served with garlic sauce and a side of rice.
I loved how well marinated the chicken barbecue was and how tender too. Also, it came in pita bread with some veggies. The garlic sauce gave a bang to the chicken -loved it! I was told the chicken barbecue came with a side of either rice or fries, I chose rice hoping to get something traditional but I got fried rice. I was slightly disappointed but when I had the first bite of the rice, the disappointment disappeared. I loved how the rice wasn’t overcooked and wasn’t over spiced either -as a side, it tasted alright.
My favorite were the mozzarella sticks. I wanted shrimp rolls, unfortunately, it wasn’t available so I had to go with the mozzarella sticks and I’m so glad I had it.
The mozzarella sticks were fried breaded mozzarella cheese served with Mayo sauce.
These sticks were crunchy and crispy on the outside yet soft and cheesy on the inside. Had the perfect cheese pull to it, which I had fun playing with -don’t judge.
The orange juice was freshly squeezed and I loved that they got theirs right. The juice had the orange pulps in it and it was yummy to have something to chew while drinking -don’t know if this makes sense…
I recommend everything I tried out, just be ready to have “garlic breath” after your meal lol.

The service here was just so amazing. The lady that waited at my table knew the menu and was polite too. She was also kind enough to help me out with most of my pictures and videos.
