The restaurant offers quick service and excellent Middle Eastern food. The chicken shawarma, falafel plate and Ful Medames are my favorites.

I love this place because they go that little bit extra. I had moris massalla chicken and vegetable samba and boy were they hot!!!! But I like that,some don't. Love the roti and yogurt dip. The chicken tikka starter was divine, the chicken cooked to perfection. I will continue to buy from here and they usually deliver within half an... More

We've been to this restaurant so many times and have never been disappointed. I like to try something new every time and I have never ordered anything I didn't like. Plus leftovers! The portions are generous, the service is excellent (they really do seem to care that we are happy), and at some point I found out how this restaurant... More

My belief is this is Eastern European/ Persian food.... Incredible shawarma!! This is the onlly place I have ever had it but you must try. Get a side of the homemade hummus to go along. You Will be satisfied.

We were introduced to Ali Baba in Newbury Park (and its sister restaurant in Simi Valley) by friends over a year ago, and have been coming back ever since! I knew we were in for a tasty treat when we were greeted by the incredible aromas of something cooking - I was instantly hungry! A great family restaurant that features... More

Both locations of this mini "chain" are always busy. The area has a dirth of small ethnic restaurants so it's wonderful to find one that does it well. Just enough spice to make it interesting along with good service and a well priced menu of all the staples of the region.

Ali Baba;s dishes up some fantastic takes on Middle Eastern cuisine. There's originality in the preparation, sincerity in the service, and huge value in these low prices, large portions, and quality ingredients. And save room for the baklava, which comes in a big slab yet costs just $1.99. The Turkish coffee at $3.99 comes in a teapot filled to its... More

I keep meaning to try more dishes but the beef shawarma is just so good I can't more. Nice small place, good food and a great staff and owner.

I thought I'd get a quick lunch and ordered the chicken curry as a bench mark dish. I was great! perfectly seasoned with grilled veggies, salad, bread and I couldn't stop eating until it was all gone. Very nice owner who also supports the community. I will be back for sure.
