The Terrace at Beirut City Centre is truly a site to see. A number of restaurants, some of which we are familiar, while others are totally new concepts to the country...More restaurants are opening and a more recent one is Nasma, a Lebanese restaurant where traditional food is introduced with a contemporary twist.

Nasma was once known as Basma in Achrafieh. It was recently re-branded to Nasma. Owned by the same people behind Crepaway, today a new location exists of this originally designed restaurant. The new location in Beirut City Centre is modern and fresh. It's really a piece of art with details that can be enjoyed as if you're dining in a art gallery. The restaurant is divided into three sections: The main welcoming area, the middle court and behind the arcade, the inner dining room that is slightly more elevated than the rest of the restaurant.
Nasma stands out from the others with its rain shelters on the terrace. Inside is spacious with a high grey and white ceiling. Nasma oozes positivity everywhere you turn; fresh colors seem to follow you around.

The place described:
  • Wooden tables and metallic chairs outside where you can enjoy the outdoors
  • Red and grey colors remind you of the place's ambiance
  • On the other side of the alley is a large terrace with green and white chairs around wooden tables
  • A long bar facing the entrance with three pending lanterns from one side and another metallic structure with bottles from the other
  • Seven arcades remind you that you are in an oriental place
  • The middle space looks more of a dancing area with wood covering
  • Grey and green take over the inner dining space which looks like a closed terrace with a view of the street
  • Up front, large grey tiles cover the floor and paintings decorate the walls
  • Three TVs will entertain you during your stay
  • A fridge displays some mouthwatering cakes
With fine Arabic melodic tunes, food started flowing around and below is the list of items enjoyed... Nasma uses ingredients of the highest quality and traditional products selected from the best local suppliers around the Lebanese villages. While preserving the original taste and flavor that brings us back to memories of childhood, Nasma adopts new cooking techniques and offers a modern vision of these products.
