Excellent large and tasty meals - spicy and filling. Great value for money. No alcohol licence however, and is also a takeaway. While not a romantic dinner location, we liked our meals a lot and will definitely be back.

Oh, I am so gutted there is not an Ali Baba in Auckland. The staff were lovely, the prices were fantastic and the food was incredible. The nicest meal I have had in a long time. If you're going to eat out in Rotorua, you have to try this place.

The service was outstanding, really lovely staff who took the time to explain the menu. The food was superb, and so reasonably priced. Will definitely go again next time we are in Rotorua.

Have to say Ali Baba's was one of the real highlights of my entire New Zealand trip. The food is absolutely outstanding and ridiculously good value for money, but it's the warmth of the atmosphere created by the staff that make it special. Choices were explained, and meant that my rich dish the first night was perfect. So good in... More

We were looking for kebabs when we found Ali Babas and we were certainly glad we did. They were welcoming and the food was great, they didn't have hot drinks but were happy to let us grab one from across the road and bring in. Overall a good place to eat.

This is by far one of the best places for Kebabs in Rotorua. I returned to NZ after 15 years in the UK and having the opportunity to travel to a lot of countries during that time this definitely rates among the top for both quality and customer service. Always welcoming and chatty.

We were searching for Halal meals in Rotorua and found this little place. Dining in was a lovely experience. The food was delicious and tasty. The staff took the trouble to explain the dishes and gladly catered to our requests.
