Inspired from the traditional kitchens of the Arab,Persian-descended Navayathi people, the authentic and delectable recipes have passed down the ages and tantalizingly await you at Alibaba. Savour wonderful dishes from a plethora of Middle Eastern cuisines like Navayathi, Arabian, Iranian, Lebanese, Mediterranean, Moroccan and Persian and wash it down with your drinks all the while swaying to intoxicating Arabic songs. Take your pick from the sumptuous meat dishes to the exotic fresh fish or the mouth-watering steam-cooked Bhatkali Biryani to the riches of vegetarian fare. What will also captivate you is the distinctive ambience inspired from the Arabian Nights. Marhaba!

We went to Alibaba Cafe for dinner on a busy Saturday night during Ramzan. The MM Road was soo full with people that there was absolutely no place to walk. It was difficult to get car parking anywhere around the mosque area. Anyways, Alibaba may have many tasty dishes, we couldn't try them all. But whatever we tried was really... More

This small place where you can try Bhatkal and Arabic food. The ambiance and service of the restaurant is average but they serve excellent food. Not recommended for large groups as there is no much room to accommodate a large group. The taste is very good, some of the stand outs are Mutton / Chicken Thallashayyo Biriyani and Mutton /...

Did have reservations on how veg food would be, as most reviews were about non veg. But the variety and taste in veg was very good. The mezze platter was delicious. Place was clean and neat with no fuss. Service was good and efficient. The not too formal atmosphere with allowances for small portions etc is a nice change to... More
