The prices are very reasonable and the food was delicious. The owner adjusted the spiciness of the dish as per our request. You can choose the sauces you want... More

We had dined here twice for dinner as we enjoyed the food the first time and found it of very good value. We tried the Berber and Tunisian rice, both with lamb, the Kascrute and Sahara pizza.

We stumbled across this restaurant looking for lunch and we were very pleasantly surprised!! The food was excellent. Huge portion sizes and great value for money. The owner was very friendly and easy to chat too. I've lived in Rotorua for 13 yrs and didn't know this place existed but now that I've found it I will definitely go back!!

Don't let the appearance fool you. It doesn't have great ambiance but the flavours of our takeaway meals were very good. We rated them 8, 8 and 9 or of 10.

Ali Babas staff is friendly and te food is very good but I wouldn't consider it special. There are also no typical arabic drinks. If you like spicy food for a small price (from 9 -13 $), It's worth it. sincerely clemens

Had the best kebabs as per the spice level we wanted after a long time, though the service was not that great.
