Ali Baba has been a well known name in the Orlando area over it's 20 year history. Nothing stays the same, however, and we have now become Ali Baba: House of Kabob, coming from a new ownership group emphasizing many bold new flavors, and a different management style. We only use fresh, quality ingredients, and we only expect to provide amazing service. The word Kabob in Farsi translates to Grill in english, and it's no coincidence that this new name change coincides with an emphasis on a great number of dishes cooked fresh on our authentic persian grill using 100% halal meat. When it comes to exotic cuisine, there is no place like Ali Baba House of Kabob. Experience the very best Mediterranean and Middle Eastern style restaurant experiance located within Central Florida. We offer an food that will immerse all your senses with an authentic mix of Lebonese, Persian, Turkish, and even some Indian cuisine elements. Ali Baba offers tantalizing dishes made from fresh and flavorful ingredients that emphasize bold flavor while also offering healthy choices. Our extravaganza dinner buffet and belly dance is unique and the best in Central Florida. All-you-can-eat lunch buffet gives you the freedom to experiment and discover new favorite dishes every day of the week, and a comfortable seated dining experience with a large menu of options to choose from. All dishes are "from scratch" using fresh exotic flavors and detailed preparation. You won't only taste the delicious and exotic food of Ali Baba House of Kabob, but you will also experience our warm hospitality and inviting culture.

Lunch buffet was extensive - good variety - and all of the food on it was excellent. Price has gone up a bit - this restaurant has been around a long time. The decor is upgraded and the layout has changed a bit from the last time I was there. The stage area (for the shows in the evenings) is... More

I went to Ali Baba for the first time and I will be back. Food is great and service was excellent. I have never seen a belly dancing show, but I loved it. The dancers interacted with all the customer, some of which got up and danced with them. A lot of fun.

Your positive review of our restaurant pleases us deeply. In much the same way that general citizens want guests to their home for dinner to totally enjoy themselves, this is also the way we approach our business. We desire that everyone completely enjoy themselves every day and night of the year when they visit. Thank you for the kind remarks. More

Not having experienced Middle Eastern cuisine I figure using a Living Social voucher for the buffet was a good way to sample a variety of dishes along with belly dancing entertainment on Friday and Saturday. I have nothing to compare to but sampled each of the dishes and enjoyed all the different flavors especially the chicken and beef sticks. I... More

I have gone to most Iranian Restaurants in North America. There is a common theme in all of them and that's poor service, at least by North American Standards. There were 7 dishes offered in the buffet but all of them sell around $10 in regular restaurants. Only cheapest kind of Kabob was offered. The quality was not the highest.... More

After reading all the good reviews and having eaten in Turkey, Egypt, Israel, Morocco, Greece, Italy, Spain, and Portugal, we are fairly familiar with Mediterranean food. So, we were excited to try this restaurant after receiving an offer from Living Social for the buffet and belly dance show. There were two types of soup and both were pretty good. Three... More
