Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to taste the good food everyone was raving about. I just called the phone number for them, and they confirmed that ali baba is now closed.

The dishes keep on comming ( if you order the combination plates). Quality is excellent and you will leave there either with a doggie bag or stuffed!~ We keep going back to this place and have never gotten tired of their food.

We visited this restaurant last night with three friends and found it to be very good. Some of the plates were the shih kaba,shish tawouk, kafta. Of course, we had a couple of hummus appetizers with pita. It was so yummy. The service was good and our waitress was very attentive. This was our first time in a Mediterranean restaurant... More

Yesterday night, me and my boyfriend wanted to have a light but good tasting dinner, so I searched on tripadvisor and came across this restaurant. On our way we got lost because there is no clear logic in the street system of David and the place is not on the main street but we called and a nice guy offered... More

Absolutely delicious cuisine. Bassam the owner is friendly and genuinely dedicated that you enjoy the food he serves you, If you are weary of bland Panamanian food this is the place to come. Garlic, lemon and middle eastern spices are a welcome change. Everything from appetizers to the main course to the beverage and dessert were fresh and outstanding. This... More

Ali Baba is a delightful place in every way. Bassam, the owner, has a huge heart and simply can’t say no. His family is beautiful and friendly. His food is magic on your palate. Although he doesn’t have a liquor license, you don’t miss it. Coffee, tea, homemade lemonade…there is plenty to quench your thirst while you dive in to... More

Anyone who lives in David knows that there is a scarcity of good places to eat. Mosto Bistro is good, as are Quarto and Casa De Churasco. Now we finally have a good Lebanese restaurant, Ali Baba, run by a very pleasant, friendly man named Basaam. I recommend the falafel sandwichs and felafel plates. The Zata is also excellent, as...

Ali Baba is a new Lebanese Cuisine restaurant that I chose to have a New Years Eve dinner party for 6. The table was impecabbly set up by the waitresses who meticulously attended to us the entire 3 hours we were there. The atmosphere is clean and spartan with a wall TV playing Arabic music videos and decorative tiled tables... More
