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

It's our first time trying out their meals when we were in Rotorua. As we stepped in for the very first time, I noticed that there were only 2 staffs managing the restaurant. However, the lady and the guy were very patient enough to explain to us in details what are the ingredients and how it will taste like according... 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.

My wife and I went here since we were searching for Halal foods. It was not disappointing at all. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. The foods were very delicious and they were really good value for money. We would really like to visit here again should we come back to Rotorua one day. An excellent experience.

Dining with a fussy vegetarian eater is never easy. We walked all around Rotorua finding a place to dine for a vege and meat eater. The ladies working there were delightful and very welcoming. The meals were huge and delicious! Very good value for money. We will go back when we return to Rotorua.

Wow yet again. I am a regular at Ali Baba's and thought it was appropriate to bring my visiting friends here to share the food experience of a life time. They ordered the Kascrute meal and a chicken Berber Rice. You should have seen their faces "Heaven on Earth" "Food to die for" were their feedback. My friend is a... More
