Love the food

Lovely food and lovely staff. This is a small restaurant at the lake end of town. There are always people in when we have visited and the food is great. Very fresh and tasty

Moved here 2 years ago, and this place remains our favourite! The seasoning has depth and balance. Ingredients are fresh, and portions are generous. Friendly, welcoming staff. Can't say enough!

Visited this place for lunch and it met the high expectations dictated by previous reviews. Would personally recommend the berber rice -- a rich tasting meal with ample portion sizing. A satisfying meal.

The placed didn't have very comfortable seating but lunch was excellent with more than ample portions and definitely excellent value for money. Would certainly add this little place to my eateries to visit again.

Ali Baba's is a takeaway restaurant with four or five tables for dine-in guests. We were served promptly and really enjoyed our delicious meals. They were great value at $13 for each generous plate of delicious Tunisian food. I'd definitely go back for more!
