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.

Not as good as it used to be

My first time going a few years ago was nice. All you can eat buffet. After it was sold, with new management the quality has declined. I grew up with Middle Eastern food, hand made in my great-grandmother's kitchen so I think I can speak with a little authority. If you're dying for Mid-East food... read more

The food was flavorful, but it was cold and you could tell how it had been sitting out all day. The plates and cups were not clean! Something stuck on the inside of my cup and all the plates at the buffet had food stuck on them too. I told the waitress, she's was nice and took the dirty plate... More

We went to Ali Baba about a week ago on a Saturday night. From other people's experience the place was not as crowded, which wasn't a problem. There was a couple of belly dancers, really good by the way, good service and customer service. The only bad thing is that some of the items from the buffet were cold, or... More

Belly dancing was interesting. The food was cold and horrible and the sound system must be from 80's, just loud and annoying. We went on Friday evening and the restaurant was dirty and silverware had food residue. It was overpriced. Will never go back again.
