We liked the service and the well filled Kebabs which we had as take aways. The Very Good is because they were. I feel that the in dining experience may well deserve an excellent based on the number of filled tables and the happy chatting.

We come here often because my son is in love with the food. They make the best pizza's in town, and the Tunisian pasta and rice dish's are so good. The owner is a really nice guy and he always renembers us. Value for money is good but i have noticed the pizza's are smaller now than they used to... More

Perfect spot if you are looking for something tasty without the time and price of a more formal sit down restaurant. Everything on the menu is a good value for New Zealand prices. It looked family run and you could watch your food being made in front of your own eyes so it had a personal touch.

She explained the menu patiently and helped us choose our menu choices. we were given a jug of chilled water and cups without even asking which was a lovely touch. I had the berber (chicken and lamb mix) for 13.00 and was so... More

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.
