Would love to visit again

Visited this place for lunch and it met the high expectations dictated by previous reviews. Would personally recommend the berber rice -- a rich tasting meal with ample portion sizing. A satisfying meal.

The placed didn't have very comfortable seating but lunch was excellent with more than ample portions and definitely excellent value for money. Would certainly add this little place to my eateries to visit again.

Good choices of food and friendly staff. This reasonably small restaurant at the Lake End of town in Rotorua, seems very popular. You can eat in or takeaway.

Ali Baba's is a takeaway restaurant with four or five tables for dine-in guests. We were served promptly and really enjoyed our delicious meals. They were great value at $13 for each generous plate of delicious Tunisian food. I'd definitely go back for more!

The food was amazing , the music was nice, they make the food freshly in front of you ,but the man should add a welcoming smile to his face :)

Visited here twice in our 3 day stay because it was so good. Clearly just know exactly what they're doing with flavours. And the prices are extremely reasonable. Chicken kebab for only $9.50!! Brilliant.

I absolutely love Ali Baba's Chicken Kebabs, they are so fresh and tasty. Always served with a friendly smile and a chat. Rotorua is very lucky to have such a high class of food, service and dining experiences from the great team at Ali Baba's.

Decided to walk around Rotorua town center. Found Ali Baba Tunisian takeaways. Sat down and enjoyed the most delicious meal I've had for a while. Tender lamb berber with rice. Wonderful hosts, great meal. Would recommend for a cheap dinner.
