Owner – Belmont Street
After coming to America, John Sakhat opened the first El Basha restaurant alongside his mother and father in 1991. “It was difficult coming to another country,” he reflects. “Learning another language, opening a business…And we had no restaurant experience whatsoever.” Their first year in business was a struggle, but John and his parents persevered, providing not only excellent food, but also a warm and inviting dining experience. “Our service sets us apart,” explains John. “It keeps people coming back.” Today, El Basha continues to build on family and tradition. John’s wife is now the head chef, and their four children all work in the restaurant. Even the menu grows with the business, with expanded American offerings like steak, swordfish, and salmon. John and his family are proud to provide something for everyone at their El Basha restaurant.
