I went here with some friends not long ago and didn't quite know what to expect... The service was great, from what I heard they are a family run business and this certainly reflects in the service you receive. They take great pride in what they serve and give great attention to detail. We didn't really know how to proceed... More

We have never had a bad meal at Ali Baba. Hani is a wonderful host, makes you feel special. His staff are excellent, very attentive. We normally don't order, just let Hani choose for us. He has never lets us down. All the mezze bits are beautiful, but his lamb & chicken livers are spectacular. They have a great selection... More

Years later he completed his studies and gained valuable experience helping launch a number of reputable restaurant chains for local companies and entrepreneurs. He finally decided to take over his father's restaurant, modernized it and now has a number of professional chefs... More
