We have tried many pizza places, just like everyone else however Pizza at this place tastes so much better. Thin crust base with spinach, its Arabian on the menu, is mouth watering. We actually went to Rotorua from Auckland and one of the highlights for us was the Pizza from this place, that's how good they are! Definitely got to... More

I had a mix kebab and it was nothing like what I tried else where. The meat was juicy and cooked to perfection. It was also uniquely spiced unlike other kebab shops I have tried in the past. I highly recommend it.

We were on a quick getaway in Rotorua looking for something yummy for dinner. Walked through the packed Eat Street, but it didn't appeal, walked down the next block and found 4 potential cafes - chose this one as had never had Tunisian cuisine before. Ali Baba's is similar to a kebab shop, but the food a bit different, you... More

One of the best meals I had in a long time! We had the Arabian pizza and Tunisian Rice (whatever the sauce is on it, it was fantastic!) with falafel…the prices were also very reasonable and service was efficient…location is near the I-site, so it was perfect for a quick meal while we waited for our bus

Great option in downtown Rotorua for reasonably priced food. I found the pasta portion to be quite generous, and like that they served it with a side of salad. They don't serve alcohol.
