We tried this place on a recommendation from a co-worker. We have been about 12 times and have tried just about everything on the menu. We have are favorites chicken shawarma and grape leaves, we usually share a dish and never leave hungry. Inexpensive and delicious. They also have a store within the restaurant or vice-versa, the price on the... More

This is a small grocery store with a restaurant. Have been going here for many many years. Very close to Arizona State University. Nothing fancy but the food is very good. I like the gyros and kabobs.

WE went back here after 6 years and the place hasn't changed one bit. Was amazed to see no changes in the menu, the servers, the crowd, the food. It was as if we left yesterday. But for a place to remain the same for years and still maintain the clientele can only be the quality of the food. We... More

The place could be a bit intimidating. However, that should not fool you. The food is excellent. Highly recommended.

Locals recommended Haji-Baba and I could see why. The food was amazing. We especially loved the hummus and pita bread. The restaurant is inside a Mediterranean grocery store and is very popular. There isn't much atmosphere, but you don't need it when the food is so good!

Really enjoyed our lunch at Haji-baba today. The restaurant is very plain and maybe even a bit disorganized but their food is excellent. I must say that I love Lebanese food. Their Babaganoush is definitely the best I have ever eaten.

If you want some authentic Arabic food at a reasonable price, then look no further. Chicken kebab platter and the falafel platter were excellent.

This is the best chicken schwarma I have ever had. The large portion of chicken was so moist, perfectly seasoned and served with rice, tabouleh, and the creamiest hummus. The system for eating is not clear - I learned that you wait by the sign if you want to eat in the restaurant. Not a huge negative. There is a... More
