My husband and I just moved from California to Puerto Rico. Living in the Bay Area for so many years it is easy to get spolied with the diversity of foods around the world. My husband was missing a Turkish place close to home so we decided to try Ali Baba. It was an excellent choice. The place was full... More

Very good service, they let you feel you are the only person and they explain and cater to the guests. The food was very tasty, though the appetizers are small for the price charged they can be a bit more generous and not overflow the tiny plates. The baba ganoush, the "fainted Imam" eggplant dish was fantastic and the bread... More

We were not at all disappointed with this restaurant. Our waitress Genesis was very helpful in talking with us about the different foods and giving suggestions on what to order and even on fun things to do in the area. We ordered the vegetarian moussaka and lamb chops which were both outstanding. The lavash bread and special recipe tahini are... More

Delicious! I wish I could remember our servers name, but she guided us through their menu and helped us make a decision that gave us a little bit of everything. We shared the mixed grill and the Iskender kebab, more meat than we've eaten in years, but every bite was amazing. The traditional music they play really made it feel... More

Our meal was delicious! It was our favorite meal of our entire vacation!! We highly recommend the eggplant appetizer (I can't remember the actual... More

Tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. We had very attentive service and enjoyed the atmosphere but food was very average.

Loved this place. Right across from the Marriott in Condado, the food is great. It's fresh and delicious. Service was attentive and very friendly but well balanced and not intrusive. Flavors were great. Presentation and preparation were awesome for a casual restaurant in a great location with reasonable prices. One of the better choices in the area. Every course was... More

Great place. Excellent food. Loved the bread which kind a looked like a naan bread but taste different. It was quite a treat for me to see a middle eastern / turkish food on the island so loved everything we ordered. Highly recommended for those who wanna take a break from the island cuisine..

Nice mediterranean/ Turkish decor! Loved all the lanterns and bright colors. Food was very good here . My husband and I ordered the chicken and steak kabobs. Very tasty! Wish I got more pita bread with it though- all we got was a tiny piece. Portions and price was decent. Service though, was a little overbearing. Had numerous servers and... More
