Pasha restaurant brings a taste of Lebanon to the attractive Thanet district of Kent. The vibrant interior is decorated in yellow and white, with sparkling lamps casting a warm light around the room. The restaurant flows through into a bright shisha lounge, where the wood-panelled walls, fairy lights and patterned hanging lanterns create an enchantingly immersive ambience. On sunny days and warmer evenings guests spill out into the pleasant patio garden, which features a decking seating area and attractive wall mosaics. For a relaxed evening with friends, guests can settle down here with a drink or make use of the colourful hookah pipes. Pasha boasts an extensive selection of shisha flavours, so there’s something to suit all tastes.
The attractive restaurant boasts an adaptable layout, designed to accommodate everyone from couples looking for a convivial evening out, to large groups hoping for a catch up. The Levantine style of cooking includes an abundance of whole grains, fruit and vegetables, making this an ideal spot for vegetarian visitors. Look forward to such hearty, warming dishes as aubergine and okra stews with vermicelli rice. You’ll also find beloved Lebanese classics like baba ganoush, falafel and hummus. The menu contains a broad selection of hot and cold mezze, among which seafood-lovers will find an abundance of fresh fish. Expect the likes of grilled lobster, juicy king prawns and spicy mackerel with rice and vegetables.
Meat-eaters will find an emphasis on poultry over red meat, but there is a good selection of lamb-based dishes such as kibbeh – deep-fried lamb meatballs mixed with cracked wheat, stuffed with sautéed mince and onions. For something a little different ask for details of the dish of the day, and experience the team’s latest flavoursome creation.
To finish why not treat yourself to a delectable pudding? You’ll find popular treats like baklava – layered filo pastry dipped in date honey and stuffed with nuts – and kanafeh – cream cheese topped with semolina and syrup. You could accompany your pudding with a silky smooth cappuccino, or get in the true Pasha spirit and give Lebanese coffee a try.
