I ordered the Damas special ( with meat) which is a little bit of everything. I love when you can order something like that and get to try 10 different things. especially when you are eating a cuizine you are not used to ( and might not like everything of).

I've been recommended this restaurant. Today instead of a tasty kebab, we decided to try Damas : Good food, very tasty. Big room, large table and very friendly service :) I recommend !

Located at the centre of Basel, Damas is a modest restaurant serving good Syrian / middle-eastern food at very reasonable prices, a rarity in Basel. It stays open on Sundays and also quite late in the nights. I would recommend the falafels, kebabs and particularly the lamb Maghlouba which is excellent value.

From the outside this place doesn't look much but the food is fantastic so definitely worth heading in and trying. It serves as a takeaway as well but there are tables on the mezzanine level. This place really is a hidden gem - considering the prices of some restaurants in Basel if you like Syrian food then you can't go wrong with Damas.

Just your basic Middle-Eastern restaurant in Basel. An escape from overpriced, heavy Röstis and meat dishes. A little bit shopworn, but just enough to be charming. Seats by the window have a view of the crowds going by in Barfusserplatz.
